Better than Mainstream Gaming Headsets
Posted by: exact0ninja from: on
Due to the quality of certain (and apparently cannot be named here) mainstream headsets declining, I decided to look for a headset that delivered the real power to match the price.
My recently purchased but previous headset was stolen, and I was forced to shop again. I told myself this time I wasn't going to give in to the mainstream gaming market and I was going to look for a good quality, decent headset specifically for gaming. I took the approach of researching names you dont hear as often as razer/astro/logitech. The reason for this is, like for monitors you usually get ASUS or something, right? Well, after research, I found Benq has AMAZING and will be getting one soon.
I found the HyperX Cloud I, Cloud II, and Cloud Revolver and started doing more research to find that they are superior, pro gaming adequate headsets. Maybe I just don't read often, but how often do you hear about HyperX? Anyways. It became a toss up of whether I should get the Cloud II or the Cloud Revolver. The main differences other than obvious aesthetics are the fact that the Cloud II has 53mm drivers and surround sound, and then Cloud Revolver has 50mm drivers and no surround sound unless you get the Cloud Revolver S version. The Cloud Revolver are also $20~ more dollars. I read many reviews about both and everyone said that the clarity and depth to the Revolvers were far superior, despite not having surround sound. My final decision was to go with the Revolvers because in all reality.. I don't even really need surround sound unless being pro is in the picture or if I am watching movies.
I can say that this was one of the best purchases I have made regarding headsets. The first impression was they are super light. After playing with them on for a few hours, I sometimes actually forgot they were even on my head.
The sound quality is by far the best quality I have heard from a gaming headset out of at least 4 different brands I have tried. And it's not that I have bad ears. I play multiple instruments well and have experience with audio and music. The drivers for the headset are 50mm and smaller than the Cloud II, but they're angled differently. The effect it gave me was that I felt like I was listening to crisp, clear sounds from within a room around me. This is what they mean by a professional grade sound stage. Unlike like the Razer/Astros, where I feel like sound is being blasted into my hear from something being pressed against my eardrum even if they were full sized and over the ear headsets.
If the headphones are off, you can easily hear what someone is listening to at a low level. But when they're on, you can't hear anything unless you raise it well above a level that would be uncomfortable for most. And, to boot, the mic is noise cancelling.
When playing games, despite not being surround sound, the depth and clarity of the sound made up for it and almost sounded surround to me. With the angle of the drivers, you can hear footsteps and shots in games not only from a greater distance away but also can gauge better how far away they are.
For normal music listening, all levels of sound are crisp and clear. The only thing I would add to this would be more bass for certain types of beats.
The only con I can see is the fact that the metal bar on the top of the headset that is used to help take pressure off your head can carry a lot of vibration to the ears if hit. But.. how often will someone do that?
Overall, I would give these headsets a 4.6 out of 5 and would recommend them over Razer, Logitech, Astro, and Turtle Beach.

Best headset I have ever owned
Posted by: Vivid from: on
The revolver's audio range is the first great thing about this headset. With the ability to here things going on at max sound range in CSGO is a huge advantage. The headset is also extremely comfortable. They don't call it CLOUD for a reason. Despite it being just a little bit big for my head. This headset will fit basically everyone with it being as comfy as a pillow for all. The detachable mic is a great feature as well. The only thing that could cause second thoughts is the price, but this well worth the price you pay. I would put this headset above A40's and any turtle beach headset as a razer fan it surpasses my previous razer headphones by miles. I cannot say enough good things about the HyperX Cloud Revolvers.

Perfect Audio Quality and Very Comfortable
Posted by: Milian from: on
Straight off the bat, the audio driver box included enhances the audio range. The quality of this headset is very evenly spread out bass and vocals; However, it is more vocals when at max which is great for communications. The mic from what I have heard people tell me is very clear and no noise unless background is very loud. The ear cups are sit on the ears fully and are very large which is good for adjusting where you want them to sit. The detachable mic is also very great!
For the price it would actually would be great to remove the audio cord detachable like other high end headsets.
Including tax it is a bit pricey, but are great for the price regardless.
Final Score: 8.7/10

Unreal quality for non USB
Posted by: Yeggie from: on
Simply plug this puppy in to just about anything and you'll be pleasantly surprised with the sounds entering your ears. Amazing BASS with NO POWER SOURCE NEEDED. Making these PERFECT for Xbox one. I wasn't able to use the mic on my iPhone 6, assuming that is not an option.

Great Comfort and Quality
Posted by: gjoeyjoe from: on
I have a bit of a wide head, and the clamping force on the frame is absolutely perfect for me. The steel frame feels unbreakable in daily use, and the headband and cups are suuuuper comfy. My friends in discord say the noise-cancellation mic got rid of the sound of the train right outside my window passing by and still hear me great. The sound quality is what I expect for the price- fantastic. My only complaint is that the splitter wasn't working for a while, but ended up working after a little bit of fiddling around. Could just be a user error though lol

Extraordinary comfort and audio quality.
Posted by: SkipH from: on
Pros: Excellent audio quality for the price, extremely comfortable, feels quality, metal headband, braided cord, removable mic, price.
Cons: Large, closed back.
I purchased these alongside a pair of Razer Kraken's for side by side comparisons after reading many reviews online. These are quite simply the best sounding gaming headphones I've ever heard. Audio is crisp, clear, and enjoyable. The sound stage isn't as wide as open backed headphones but well above average for closed back ones. Highs are clear and non-harsh, mid's are present and smooth, and the lows are punchy without distortion or boom. I was hearing things in my games I hadn't heard before with my Creative Labs G500 desktop speakers.
The mic works very well and I've had no complaints from team mates about clarity. The fact that it's removable is a bonus.
Comfort wise these are top notch! Easily the most comfortable headphones I've worn in quiet some time. The ear cups are generous and comfortable, allowing them to completely envelop your ears without pinning them to your head. The metal headband keeps them clamped securely but not tightly to your head allowing for hours of fatigue free wearing. After 2 1/2 hours of use I'd almost forgotten I was wearing them.
Bottom line, these are likely the best bang for the buck you can find for a pair of gaming headphones. I highly recommend them!

My Favorite Gaming Headset
Posted by: TheDeadWalk13 from: on
I saw numerous YouTube reviews on the Hyper X Cloud Revolver headset. After seeing all the positive reviews, I decided to pull the trigger and purchase them. They sound really good. I can hear all the dialogue in games, even whispers. I can even pick up environmental sounds like wind, water, and softly chattering zombie teeth. The bass isn't skull crushing, but there is some thump. They are also really comfortable. I hardly noticed they were there. Plus they are versitile. They can be used with consoles, PCs, mobile devices, and macs. At about $120 dollars, this is a nice headset.

Incredible headset, for gaming AND business!
Posted by: GadgetAddicted from: Atlanta, GA on
I'd read some rave reviews about this headset, on and off BB, so I was very interested to see what the hype was all about. I had been on the hunt for a headset to wear to take Softphone calls for work, and my son is always looking for the next best audio experience...so I picked these up at BB for what I thought was a pretty good price (based on searching Amazon and a few other sites). These are GREAT...very comfortable, excellent sound, excellent mic...neither my son nor myself has a complaint!!! I've not listened to any music with them (have other headphones for that), but my son used to use Bose QC3's before this headset...and he doesn't seem to miss the Bose!

Given I got these on sale and used my rewards certificate can't complain about the price. The ear cups engulf my ears giving total sound immersion, not to tight on the sides of the head, and overall lighter fill than my lower console headsets, and the sound quality is superb compared to some high end and equal valued headphones and gaming headsets I tried in store. I'd rock these over my Beats by Dre. any day.

After trying the Hyper x 2 (which are also a excellent set of headphones), I decided that that the revolvers, overall sound quality was superior. Also the construction is more robust, the comfort of wearing them for extended periods is superb.
