This headset is made similar to the previous HyperX headphones with a Black and Silver design.
It comes in a hardshell zipper case to keep it safe during travels.
When you first open up the case, this is what you see:
Everything is all tucked in safe and tight so they won’t be broken while traveling. The first thing you see is the green/black interchangeable memory foam ear cushions.
The headset comes with leather cushions but these are an option, as well. The headset comes with a braided cable attached and is set up by default to use in an Xbox One, however, it is compatible with the PS4 and PC. There is a separate cable to use for PC to make sure your headphones and mic are both operable.
There is a detachable mic that you can remove when you’re simply listening and don’t need to talk.
How did we like it?
The HyperX CloudX Pro Wired Gaming Headset was a very nice, quality headset. The sound on the mic was good as well as the overall sound coming through the headphones. The headset was comfortable on my head and didn’t require much adjustment. I like the braided cables as well as the option to take the mic off and on when needed. The carrying case is great for storage and travel. Overall, I didn’t find much wrong with this headset including the price which is just under $100. Overall, to get a nice gaming headset for that price is a bonus in itself but it is even better when the headset does its job well.
You can purchase this headset anywhere that sells electronic accessories such as Best Buy, Amazon, NewEgg.com and other places for around $99.00.
