Design wise Kingston HypereX Cloud Stinger is not so impressive.Except for the HyperX logo in each earcup entire headset is black.The size of the headset is moderately compact.Plus, the ear cups fold flat,so you will not have any problem in fitting inside your backpack.And the foam padding on the headband is surprisingly good for this price range.

The ear cups are extremely comfortable because of the breathable foam material.Left ear cup has adjustable microphone,while the right ear cup has volume-control slider.

Unlike high end gaming headsets Cloud stinger still connects to 3.5-mm audio jack.However you can also attach it to a splitter (included with the product) for both microphone and audio streaming.The cord is sufficiently long to attach comfortably to desktop, laptop or controllers.


Because of the good quality breathable foams on the ear cups and headbands,Cloud Stinger is very comfortable to use it even for a long long time.Almost all the reviews that we have covered,every user has praised the comfort factor of this headset.

Sound Quality

Let's face it,just by paying $50,you can expect to get a both good quality gaming and music headset.The product is bound to have its limitation.Though there is no problem in the sound output quality, but if you want to experience something like "feel the music" kind of quality, this is not what you will be getting out of it.To sum it up you will get sound effects and voice work clearly and directionally, but you will not be able to feel the depth.
