HyperX has released the newest addition to the Cloud headset family called Cloud Revolver, that offers rich audio within a durable and comfy design. While the Cloud sported a single-piece headband, the Cloud Revolver relies on a flexible suspended padded band with a steel frame which extends right round to the earcups. It’s strong and unassuming and looks far less bulky than much of the competition
The Revolver’s design strays from the no-nonsense look of the previous Clouds. It is not as aggressive-looking as some of the RGB LED headsets on the market, but it’s edgier than the smooth, glossy-looking design of its older brothers.
The Cloud Revolver features a self-adjusting bacnd and a steel suspension band. The flexible metal band will connects to the side of each ear cup.
The Revolver promises “studio-grade” sound, with 50-millimeter drivers that are built to provide a wider soundstage than previous Cloud headsets. HyperX certainly delivered on this front, as the Revolver did an brilliant job of highlighting everything from subtle movements to thunderous explosions, whether I used it on PS4, Xbox One or PC.
The Revolver packs a rubber, highly flexible boom microphone that you can detach when you want to use the device as a pair of headphones.
The headset’s roughly 3-foot-long, 3.5-mm cable gives you plenty of slack for connecting to your controller, PC or mobile device, and you can make it even longer by connecting it to the included 6.5-foot audio box extension. That extra cord sports a dongle that lets you mute your mic, adjust the volume and clip the cable to your shirt, and gives separate microphone and headphone jacks for your PC.
The HyperX Cloud Revolver is now available for pre-order, with a suggested price of $119.99.
