US-based maker of memory products, Kingston has introduced HyperX Cloud Revolver S, a high-end headset targeted at gamers in India. Priced at Rs 12,999, the company claims that its newly launched headset offers high-end immersive audio experience at the touch of a button. We used this headset for over a week and here are our views.
Out of the box, the HyperX Cloud Revolver S looks amazingly premium and attracting. The big red exhaust-like circles on the outside of each ear cup make it appealing. They don’t light up but will lit up your eyes. The headset packs a sturdy steel suspension frame, which covers a sporty-looking foam headband that automatically conforms to dome.
The headset features multi-platform support, 50 mm drivers and a noise cancelling microphone designed for use by gamers and eSports teams. It comes with plug-and-play dolby 7.1 surround sound, USB dongle, comfortable foam and wide headband design to offer a comfortable gaming experience.

During the review period, some of the games that we played produced quality and clear sound. Every action—the kick and punch—were heard clearly with full impact. Once you put the headset, you are into it. Even for normal usage, HyperX Cloud Revolver S offers rich sound experience.
The three pre-set equaliser setting helps gamers chose their favourite audio settings. One can customise options like boost, flat and vocal. While playing games, you can hear sounds clearly and accurately leading to a better gaming experience.
The headset packs a highly flexible boom rubber microphone that can be detached to use as a pair of headphones. The microphone offers clearer voice quality and reduced background noise for better in-game chats. The company says that it is certified by TeamSpeak and compatible with Discord, Skype, Ventrilo, Mumble and RaidCall.
The HyperX Cloud Revolver S comes with a 3-foot long and 3.5 mm cable that gives plenty of slack for connecting to controller, mobile device or PC. Gamers can make it even longer by connecting it to the included 6.5-foot audio box extension. The extra cord sports a dongle that lets gamer mute mic, adjust the volume and clip the cable to shirt, and provides separate microphone and headphone jacks for PC.
The wider audio range of HyperX Cloud Revolver S creates depth and width for improved audio precision. It is ideal for FPS and open environment gameplay and for a concert hall-like experience when listening to music but at the same time, this could be an ideal headset for dailyay use.
Overall, HyperX Cloud Revolver S is good headset for competitive gamers.
