Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver review.

“HyperX Cloud Revolver has a wider audio range that creates depth and width for improved audio precision. Get the competitive edge by hearing your opponents’ location more accurately, even when they’re further away. Re-engineered audio profiles create a larger sound stage that’s ideal for FPS and open environment gameplay and for a concert hall-like experience when listening to music. Next-generation 50mm drivers direct sound into the ear for precise audio positioning, making the HyperX Cloud Revolver the only headset you need for both PC and console gaming.”

hello again I am blonde T these are the HyperX cloud two headsets I've reviewed these before when they first came out and the only real weak point that I find with them is the microphone when the sound get the fit great they're very comfortable but the microphone while very clear and crisp and great for teamspeak and in an in-game chat and all that kind of stuff for me personally it wasn't quite to the standard where I wanted for things like twitch streaming for example well I would like to now introduce you to the hope ranks revolver headset not the cloud 3 this isn't a replacement or an upgrade or sequel to the cloud headsets this is a new family member in the cloud sort of stable Angus the cloud revolver and as you can hear for yourself big strides have been made as far as audio quality of the microphone goes rest up there also I haven't made them comparatively but they feel on your only stay on your head they feel lighter more comfortable the ear cups are bigger sort of a bigger you know make sure that they fit better on people with big buffets like me for example I'm going to tell you all about them but just so you know every syllable in this video from this point on is recorded with this microphone itself so you can have a nice long listen to exactly how it sounds so the cloud revolver doesn't have the USB adapter off the cloud – but it does have an inline remote for adjusting the volume and muting the mic it splits out to the usual twin 3.5 millimeter plugs for your PC but if you pop off the inline remote it reveals a 3.5 millimeter 4-pole connector for your PlayStation 4's Dualshock 4 connector or your Xbox one controller of course and even your iPhone as a matter of fact and just to demonstrate that iPhone compatibility for you right now I am this this bit right here is filmed with my iPhone 6s plus front camera which is why it probably looks a bit crappy can they do all the other video in this particularly a bit but see works perfectly the ear cups are super soft and covered with a leatherette material beneath that 50 millimeter drivers and a closed back and the sound from the well obviously I can't demonstrate it directly for you is superb it's very rich deep without getting muddy and the highs are crisp and clean these are easily amongst the best wanting headsets I've tried for gaming music movies and I'm including comparisons to headsets that cost twice or three times as much they are fantastic value for money when it comes to sound quality the microphone boom is detachable and flexible but you can't swivel it up and out of the way when you're not using it which I like to do but you can detach it completely if you are not using it and like I said a little bit earlier you've been hearing it throughout this review so you can make your own judgements on how it sounds and pop a comment to let me know what you think the design in general is very attractive in my opinion built very solidly with a lush thick self-adjusting headband sports slung under the tough metal frame and that frame provides the only weakness or design oversight as because it's connected directly to the ear cups and sits free on your head when you're wearing it thanks to that self adjusting head bed if something taps against the metal band it rings resonates with that familiar metallic sound like a tuning fork or something and that sound is transmitted directly into the ear Cubs I wonder if you can hear it through the microphone I'm going to tap it now and as far as long-term comfort goes so I have worn this headset for extended gaming periods of 6 or 7 hours a more I think I basically spent the entire sad day a couple of weekends ago playing rise of the Tomb Raider at last it's been I might want to do list for a long time I just have enough time but last week episodes ago finally had time to play it so I just said all day long in this headset playing rise to the Tomb Raider had 0 like no nothing no complaints to make at all about the comfort they sit nice and light they're balanced and you know the nice big ear cups they sit nice down you hear they don't squeeze too much they're not too loose so if you move your head around they don't sort of flop about or anything like that they are one of the most comfortable headsets that I've worn for that kind of long gaming experience if you like me are an Australian you should be sitting in the hit the Shoals over the next couple of weeks or so I think retail price in Australian dollars again it's about hundred fifty nine Australian jobs which makes them as far as I'm concerned really good value for a very well-built headset that sounds fantastic both here and here I think that's pretty much all I really need to say about them they are the hyper cloud revolver and I like them so thanks for watching I am lucky and I will catch you next time

  1. Thanks for showing the mic quality. I'm going to get these when COD WWII comes out. I like how they are simple and I can just plug it straight in to my Xbox One controller with the single wire.

  2. In my opinion, one of the best reviews of the Revolver. A lot of other YT-ers seem to trash it or point out more negatives than it's worth. I bought a pair a few months ago (on sale $110) and it's by far one of the most comfortable headsets. I only need it for amazing sound and mic quality, so far, I'm impressed.

  3. bounty.. great vid.. subscribed just off the strength of this vid. question, I am a halo fanatic and am in the market for a headset. would U recommend the cloud 2 or revolver. or is there another headset which is around the same price point that U would recommend for Xbox one fps???

  4. Hey man, good job on a kickass video! I remember watching a video of yours ages ago on a phone video comparison(can't remember the 2 phones but one was iPhone and one was Android. Or maybe it was an actual camera review, I forget! ha!) and your vids are always very informative and in depth. It's also good watching vids from a fellow Aussie as availability and pricing is known straight off the bat instead of working out conversions. So good job man, keep it up! I think you pretty much sold me on this set and I only started researching headsets about an hour ago!

    Keep up the good work.

  5. I really don't like the look of the revolver, much prefer the look as well as price of the cloud 1 and 2. I just can't recommend the original clouds enough, the price, the build, the audio quality (both mic and drivers), it's all just stunning.

  6. I know you said you've been using them for hours and hours, I'm curious, is this your current pair of headphones you'll be choosing to wear regularly now, or were they just a review set that was sent to you and you'll be going back to another pair?

    If you are going back to another pair of headphones, what headphones do you use? I find my Razer Kraken's ear cups…tend to hurt my ears after so long. Circle cups plus oval shaped ears = no fun. I ask you because I value your opinion with all the reviews you do. I tend to always check out the products you review and look deeper into them to see if they are for me.

  7. I ordered the cloud 1s hopefully won't regret it, cloud 2s just didn't seem worth the extra 20$ cuz i like the white from the 1s and the revolver, eh its a good headset but i would rather have the normal clouds. BuT good review 😀
