HyperX Cloud Core Gaming Headset


PRICE: $69.99

DIMENSIONS: 9.3 x 8.5 x 4.5 inches

WEIGHT: 12.5 ounces



The HyperX cloud Core has leatherette memory foam ear pads which are soft and a leatherette headband for extra comfort. The only down fall is the leatherette material gets a little warm and damp in the summer. The frame is constructed of aluminum, the Microphone is detachable and can be taken out of the way if your not using it during game play or while listening to music.

Hyperx Cloud Core Mic


If your looking for a flashy gaming headset with LEDs then look away from the HyperX Cloud Core because Kingston concentrated on build and sound quality. The headsets cord is long enough and appears to be made of great quality which should last through many intensive gaming sessions.


The gaming headset provided crystal clear sound during game play and while listening to music. It has the same ear pleasing enhanced bass reproduction and same audio specs as the Hyperx cloud headset that I have used in the past.

Hyperx Cloud Core Earmuffs


The gaming headset is connect to your device through a single 3 ringed 3.5mm jack or through the provided 2m extension which gives the option of dual 3.5mm jacks. HyperX Cloud Core has the same 7.1 virtual surround sound experience that the HyperX Cloud II offers and a frequency  response of 15Hz – 25 KHz with a maximum outpost power of 150Mw. The microphone is compatible with your tablet, Mac, Xbox (but you need a adapter which isn’t included), Playstation 4 which is why I purchased the headset in the first place and it works flawlessly.


When you first open the box you will notice the HyperX Cloud Core gaming headset comes with a 2m extension cable which turns a single 3.5mm jack into two which separates the audio and the microphone. As said before the gaming headset comes with a detachable mic and a rubberized plug to keep the microphone jack covered when mic is detached.


The HyperX Cloud Core makes for a great addition to the hyperx cloud gaming headset line and doesn’t disappoint. The audio quality is amazing, the headset is built of great quality materials, the set includes all your need to use the headset on most devices and a adapter can be purchased separately for Xbox One gaming. The Cloud Core may not be on the comfort level as the more expensive HyperX Cloud Core II but it still fits comfortably during long gaming session. If your looking for a great gaming headset under $70 dollars then look no further the Kingston’s Hyper Cloud Core.
