You might know Kingston Technology and HyperX best for their memory products and SSDs, but they make a mean gaming headset too. The first HyperX Cloud was already really good and they've been steadily improving on the design, performance and value. And now, you can really show off your gamer cred with the new Gears of War branded CloudX Revolver. Looks hot, right?
As you may have gleaned from my review of the HyperX Cloud Revolver some time back, this is a great sounding headset with just enough of an edgy look. The HyperX CloudX Revolver Gears of War is effectively the same headset, but designed for the Xbox One with obvious Gears of War branding.
They say it is ideal for third-person shooters (like Gears of War), offering a "studio-grade sound stage that lets gamers hear opponents from farther away and more accurately."
The new headset comes with a two-year warranty and is shipping now.
