  • HyperX Cloud Revolver Pro Gaming Headset Review
  • HyperX Cloud Revolver Pro Gaming Headset Review



    When Kingston Technology first launched the HyperX line back in 2002 we knew exactly what we were in for, high end memory with a focus on enthusiasts.  That’s why when the first HyperX Cloud gaming headset was released in 2014 it flew a bit under the radar.

    That doesn’t happen anymore, their Cloud II may be the best gaming headset for the money on the market today.  In this review we will be looking at the latest offering from HyperX, the Cloud Revolver Pro Gaming headset. Dubbed the Ultimate Gaming Stereo Headset, the HyperX Cloud Revolver has a lot to live up too!

    With the Cloud Revolver comes a dramatic new look centered on a full steel frame.  As with all the HyperX products the color scheme is a solid black with red accents on the ear pieces. While the Cloud Revolver brings anime to mind the red style of the sides may resemble the cylinder on a revolver pistol.  There are no lights to distract though it may look like the red is lit in the pictures.
