HyperX Cloud Revolver Review – The Cheaper Version Might be Better



The HyperX Cloud Revolver is for those who want an analogue connection on a pair of cans that can still promote a more-than-average level of comfort, which is required for those long gaming sessions into the wee hours of the morning. For its price, it is found to be more expensive than the brand’s own Cloud II, but it does gain some new features which include a “studio grade” soundtage and a new design. However, it does have a bit of flaws which are more than the norm, which ultimately makes this gaming headset difficult to recommend.

The HyperX Cloud Revolver is Quite Difficult to Recommend

The HyperX Cloud Revolver has a black-and-red design going on that will instantly reveal its purpose for gaming. It is also quite large, so it means that the unit isn’t particularly very travel-friendly. However, it also means that it will be able to fit large-sized heads with minimal problem. The standard packaging comes with a meter-long braided 3.5-millimeter cable that will enable an easy connection towards gaming consoles, controllers, and even mobile devices. If you want to connect it to a computer, there is a supplied dual 3.5-millimeter cable that will offer a lot of room for you to roam around your desk area without having to worry about snagging the headset’s cable.

The ear cups on the Cloud Revolver are undeniably large, and these are covered with a thick layer of foam that are coated in faux leather. There is the HyperX branding that is clearly stamped on the outside portions of the ear cups, and it is in this regard that the build quality does take a bit of a hit. Because of this design choice, it is made out of a glossy plastic material that would otherwise give off a solid-feel for a pair of cans.

Perhaps the largest shortcoming in terms of design comes in the large metal skeleton that will give off a loud and unpleasant clunk with the slightest knock. In real world usage, this translates to annoying sounds of bumps and knocks which can enable a sour experience, especially when during those intense gaming moments.

Therefore, playing your favorite video game titles with the HyperX Cloud Revolver should best be played while sitting as stationary as possible for you to experience the best possible audio experience that it can muster. Speaking of its audio performance, listening to music can be quite the pleasurable experience as it gives off a nicely balanced sound signature. The bass is forceful enough while the midtones are well-handled. Audio performance while playing games is equally stellar. However, the Cloud II can provide a much better experience, in more ways than one, especially when talking about the price tag.
