Kingston HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset Review – A Ray of Sunshine
Posted on June 4, 2014 3:00 AM by Techgage Staff
PC hardware vendors are constantly expanding into markets they traditionally have never had a presence in. Kingston, known for its memory and storage solutions, is the latest one; its HyperX Cloud gaming headset is its first venture into the world of gaming audio. Will the Cloud bring rain on this parade, or will it shine through like a ray of sunshine?
If you’re a regular Techgage reader (and if you’re not, why aren’t you?), then Kingston is a name you’d remember, I’m sure. The company has been a leader in computer memory and solid state storage solutions for years. Now, though, it’s expanding into hitherto unexplored territory.
With its all-new HyperX Cloud, Kingston is venturing into the world of gaming audio. It’s an interesting move, given just how crowded the market is. It’s also a very tough challenge to break into this market, and Kingston’s best chance of success is to make a great first impression.
It’s a bit of a privilege, really, to have the task of reviewing the HyperX Cloud given that it’s Kingston’s first product in a whole new arena. For sure, though, Techgage will subject this headset to the same conditions as every other headset we review.
