      I have been trying numerous headsets from different manufacturers the past three months in search of the best headset for me. My previous headset was the Astro A40tr which I got with the mixamp. I love the mixamp but the headset itself leaves things to be desired. Mic quality is mediocre at best and it doesn't have a big Soundstage for positional audio cues. After reading and watching reviews online for the Hyperx Cloud Stinger I decided to give it a try. Honestly didn't expect much based off its price point but man was I wrong. Yes it is a mostly plastic build headset and I wouldn't recommend it if you are rough with your electronics. However it has sound quality and comfort that surpasses headsets four times its price. Yes in my opinion the Stinger sounds better than either the Astro A40tr or the Turtle Beach Elite Pro. I'm powering it with my Astro Mixamp TR and the 50mm drivers sound incredibly good. Easier to pinpoint gunfire and such than other headsets I have used. The microphone quality is also better than the Astro or Turtle Beach models I mentioned. It also flips up to mute so you don't have turned fumble around for a inline control.switch. Comfort wise, it is extremely light and has leatherette memory foam earpads so you can wear it for hours. This headset is a steal at its current price point and I couldn't recommend it more.

      Top 3 Favorite Headset

      Posted
      InkedInsomniac

      I purchased this headset today, 03/31/18, as a back up due to all the "Rav Reviews" I've heard. I've never owned a HyperX product before. My usual choice in gaming headsets is Steelseries. I've been usuing these for about six/seven hours now... Let me tell you, these sound better than the 2018 Sony Gold's and my Arctis 5's on the PS4 Pro. Just to compare, I have the following headsets.... Arctis 3. Arctis 5. Arctis 7. Siberia...something. Sony Gold 2018. Sony Platinum. Sony Pulse Elite. Like three or four Turtle Beach. And alot of others I've collected over the years. These are my second favorite for my PS4 to use as of now. And I don't see this changing. Comfortable, sounds great, ear audio, which is an issue with PS4 as some headsets that are third party made, Sony makes it where they will have volume that is low...and overall a very sturdy/good build quality which is a BIG PLUS because I have a big head. Speaker cups are just big enough to cover my ears completely and my ears are about medium size...if that makes sense. I'm playing Fortnite on PS4 Pro and PUBG on Xbox...weapon sounds are loud and clear with my volume hovering between 70-80%. I can hear footsteps really well too and get the direction of them pretty quick. The mic, not bad. Definitely good when compared to some $100 dollar models. I would strongly suggest getting these. I am definitely a HyperX fan as of today.

      Not perfect, but pretty good overall

      I've been using the Microsoft Xbox One headset for quite a while, which had good sound but the mic was a little short, making it difficult for my party to hear me unless I was shouting. Decided to upgrade, and after looking around, chose the Cloud Stinger over the other, more expensive (although cheaper than Turtle Beach) HyperX headsets. Sound quality is pretty good, although keep in mind it's not Bose quality (or Bose price). Bass is heavy, but not eardrum shattering. Mids and lows are clear and decently precise. I was able to hear much more than I'm used to. Mic works better than expected, people I talk to say they can hear me just fine. One issue I noticed though is that the sound and chat gets cluttered up easily. Maybe I'm just used to playing with a standard chat headset, but I like having the clear distinction between game sound and voice chat. Even after adjusting the sound controls around quite a bit, it still just seems to come in a jumbled mess at times, which can be a little distracting. That aside, I can't argue with the $50 price point (cheaper than Microsoft's headset even). And I can't iterate this enough, if you go into this buy looking for perfection, you're going to be disappointed... it's only a $50 headset. But for that money, you're getting quality in the physical product and performance that rivals $100+ headsets. If you need the better sound, spend the money. Trust me, you'll be happier. But if just need a headset to keep from waking you small children on your late-night gaming binges (like me), then you're going to be happy with this. And you won't be in the doghouse for spending the kids' college funds to get it.

      HyperX Stinger vs. Logitech G430

      Posted
      TinNewWin

      Over the years I used a Logitech G430 & I was pretty satisfied about the product, but like all headset wear & tear takes into place & this year I had to go look for another one, but when I was looking up headset within the range of $25-$50 I saw that the HyperX Stinger just came out & wanted to give it a shot since I've been hearing good things about their other headsets like the Cloud II & Revolver from my friends. Well when I got back home to open the box up & everything it was a very well package headset & simple, everything was together & I just had to plug it in & it was ready to go. I really like how the headset felt when wearing it for CS:GO the sound quality was great! I didn't feel the head fatigue like when I wore my g430 for 3-4hrs, even though it had the extra cushion in the earmuffs. Overall as a new user toward HyperX I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase & glad that their looking out for all us gamers' that have to buy on a budget!

      Fantastic headset for the price! The earpieces are very comfortable and can definitely drown out the surrounding noise when you've got them cranked at full volume. The intuitive microphone design is great too. Before this I had the PS4 wireless headset and sometimes my wife would come in and not know whether I was in a chat or just listening to my game, and now she knows if the mic is up, I'm good to talk, and if it's down...it's game time! Also the easy lift-to-mute function on the mic is great. The cross platform compatibility is another big plus, as I can jump from gaming on my computer to my console with no fuss at all. At $50, you can't do much better than this in terms of quality gaming headsets. Is it the best? No - and if you want to spend big bucks to get a top-of-the-line headset, then you do you! But if you're a gamer on a budget or would rather spend your money on other things (like upgrading your video card), the HyperX Cloud Stinger is a great pick!

      I've been needing a headset for a few years, but was always too lazy or didn't want to front the extra money when I could just use my webcam microphone or some cheap headset that came with my iPhone or whatnot. My friends were having a lan party and I didn't want me webcam to pick up background noise, so I finally bit the bullet and decided to snatch a "cheap" headset for the day. I've heard of "Turtle Beach" and "Steel Series" and all these other headsets, but my friend had this HyperX Cloud Stinger II headset that he let me try and it felt extremely comfortable on my head and ears and it sounded great! I opted for the HyperX Cloud Stinger I (not the second version) because it was cheaper, but it still does the trick! It sounds amazing and people always compliment that they can't hear ANY background noise (except my voice), and even my friends who have "nicer" headsets don't seem to sound as good as mine and pick up unnecessary background noise. Maybe I don't know what I'm missing with higher-end models and brands, but this headset is all I'll ever need. It sounds great and feels great.

      So I did a lot of researching before buying this headwear for my boyfriend. He originally had the Razer Kraken headset but the foam pieces started coming off and he said he wanted a Logitech one next. Every review site I looked at said this was the best headset for headsets under $50 and was reviewed much better than the Logitech ones. So I ended up getting this one and it has been great! He uses them for gaming on his PC as well as on the Xbox One S. I also use them for the Xbox and the sound cancellation on them is great. The sound is clear, the bass isn’t as strong as it could be but it is still really good. This headset does not come with and adapter for the Xbox controller headset jack. Unless you have a 3.5 mm jack on your controller you will need an adapter. I haven’t had any issues in regards to using an adapter. The ear cups are really comfortable, you can wear them for a really long time. I have no complaints and would highly recommend them.

      After months...probably years...of hemming and hawing, I finally purchased headphones for my PC at home. I've been using Apple earbuds for years to watch videos, listen to music, and play games on my PC. I've always wanted proper over-the-ear headphones, but I just never get around to finalizing a purchase. Circumstances found me at a Best Buy shopping headphones for someone else, and I decided on the HyperX Cloud Stinger as a gift. The price was GREAT at the time, so I figured, what the heck, I'll get a pair for me, too. I'm so glad that I did! I love that they block out ambient noise around me but still let me hear louder sounds (like someone calling out my name). The sound quality is fantastic, and I couldn't be more satisfied. The headphones have a volume control, and the microphone retracts out of the way. They even come with an extension cable that allows for connections for headphone and microphone. Overall, great headphones at a great price!
