HyperX Cloud Revolver Headset Review
Posted by Heath Coop on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 - 8:00am
For many gamers, such as myself, there is a few requirements we demand from a headest. It has to be durable, look good, and certainly sound good. Most headsets are able to check off one or perhaps two of these requirements; but it is surprising how few check off all three. I personally review HyperX’s original Cloud Headset and was pleasantly surprised. It check off all three requirements and at a very affordable price as well. Still, some gamers were wanting more. Enter the HyperX Cloud Revolver.
The Cloud Revolver departs quite a bit from the previous Cloud and Cloud II headsets. The cosmetic design is new and far more bold. It is still not as aggressive as we have seen from some of the other manufacturers and for some that is a good thing. The red and black color scheme of the original cloud is still here. The headset is far more sculptured and modern looking. The headband is also of a different design and features a steel frame that extend above the headpad.
The Cloud Revolver is built with 50mm drivers with neodymium magnets that are rated with a 18 - 28,000 Hz frequency response. Sound pressure level is rated at an impressive 104.5 db at 1 Khz. The earcups feature red memory foam that promises to be super comfortable. A wide frequency response noise cancelling detachable microphone round out the feature list. On paper, the HyperX Cloud certainly looks like it fits the bill of many an audiophile and gamer alike.
