So you finally got yourself a PlayStation 4 Console and the games you wanted along with a nice high-definition TV. The next must-have purchase is a gaming headset to further enhance your gaming experience. This is the first Headset I’ve tried for the PlayStation 4. If you’re interested in a quality headsets under $100 then the HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset is what you’ll looking for.
Here is a rundown of the features for the HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset for the PC, mobile and the PS4:
Hi-Fi capable 53mm drivers for supreme audio quality
15 – 25.000 Hz frequency response
Detachable microphone (quick and easy to plug/unplug for music-only purposes)
Solid aluminum construction for durability and stability
Super-soft padded leather headband with memory foam on cups for maximum comfort
Closed cup for enhanced bass reproduction and passive noise cancellation
Compatible for desktop, notebooks, mobile phones, PlayStation 4, and airplane adaptors
The headset will greatly improve your game experience, as you’ll become more aware of your surroundings, you’ll hear nearby gunfire, footsteps that will aide you in battle. If you are a First Person Shooter Player, then you are probably familiar with players waiting to hear footsteps in order to pinpoint your location, now you can turn the tables, as the sounds that come through is so clear and loud that it can greatly help you gain the upper hand in many battles.
Sound Quality: I loved the booming mic, as it picks up your voice loudly, meaning that I didn’t have to shout when speaking into the mic, I could play late-night with confidence knowing that I could hold a conversation while speaking softly into the mic. While Playing numerous games, watching movies and listening to music on my iPad for a couple of days now, the headset did a excellent job of transmitting a lot of depth through the headsets. It also sounded extraordinary on the Playstation 4 while playing some video games.
Durability: The build quality of the headset is solid, as you’ll notice that it’s made to fit a variety of sizes. The headset itself consists of a large white pair of headphones, and a detachable mic that plugs under the left ear cup. The headphones have large comfortable over-the-ear cups, with a white HyperX Cloud logo on either side.
The ear cups are heavily padded for comfort, which means it won’t leave your ears in pain after a long session of gaming. Another nice feature is the addition of a softer set of ear cushions, just in-case you damage the cups from wear and tear or you may prefer velour ear cushions.
The cord isn’t too thick but since it’s braided I find this type to be durable. The length of the cord runs pretty long if you attach the extension cord, giving you a good amount of cord to play with.
The Headset comes with a easy to use control box, which includes the controls for the volume, on and off for the mic, and a pause/mute button. Assembling the headset to play with your PS4 is easy, only a few cables to connect together followed but connecting a cable from the headset to the mic plug on the PS4 controller, and you’re done.
Where to Buy: The price value for the HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset will run you at a retail price of $89.99 dollars and it’s well worth it. Also if you’d like to check out some other Hyperx products, you may visit the Official Website: www.kingston.com
