Kingston HyperX Cloud Core Gaming Headset Review - FunkyKit

 

Its not often that the words ‘budget' and ‘quality' go side by side, and when it comes to audio equipment, its rare that any piece of equipment ticks both categories. Kingston's HyperX Cloud Core gaming headset looks to fill this void, and today we'll...

If there’s one set of entry-level gaming headset you get, then the HyperX Cloud Core should be it, it really does fulfill being ‘budget’ and ‘quality’.

Kingston HyperX Cloud Core Review: Excellent headset for gamers and music aficionados on a budget - Tech2

 

We weren't particularly keen at first noting our lustreless experience with the previous Cloud Drone headset. However, the Cloud Core headset is higher up in the ladder and looks a lot more interesting.

Apparently, the sound performance should be of no surprise, the HyperX Cloud line is based on the famous QPAD gaming headsets . The styling, the looks, and the sound are all the same! The interesting bit is that QPAD headsets aren’t available in India...

Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset

Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset Review

 

Even if you are a casual gamer you want a good sounding headset that is comfortable for hours of use. Kingston hopes to accomplish just that with their HyperX

– Steel frame design ; – Very comfortable ; – Can be used on mobile devices, PC, and PS4 ; – Great sound quality ; – Removable microphone

– Some audio bleed into the microphone

When I first put on the HyperX Cloud Revolver the first thing that I thought was that they were really loose on my head. This all has to do with the design and the flexible headband. I have been using the headset for about 3 weeks now so that initial...

Kingston HyperX FURY Pro Gaming Mousepad Review

 

Today we will be taking a look at one of the their latest mousepads in the HyperX FURY Pro. This mousepad has a high-quality fabric pad that's soft yet

– Great feel and glide ; – Thick ; – Available in 4 different sizes ; – Price

– None that I found

I have been using the HyperX FURY as my main mousepad for a couple of weeks now and I really like it. The main games I have been playing have been Heroes of the Storm, Payday 2, and Team Fortress 2. I really like the size of the FURY, my previous...

Kingston HyperX Fury 240GB sounds furious, but only in name

 

Kingston has just released its new HyperX Fury SSD, a mainstream drive specifically targeted at budget-conscious gamers. Oddly, it uses a SandForce controller, but we gave it a go to see how it compares to other mainstream heavyweights from Crucial and...

Solid chassis, good build quality

Disappointing performance ; Outdated SandForce SF-2281 controller ; No accessories included, only 9.5mm spacer ; Not priced attractively

All in all, there is sadly very little going for the Kingston HyperX Fury and unless street prices do turn out to be substantially lower (around S$150), there is no compelling reason to choose it ahead of other competitors.

Kingston HyperX Cloud Pro Gaming Headset Review

 

When you hear the name Kingston you usually think about memory, flash drives, and maybe SSD's. However what you don't think about are Headsets. Designed in
