Enjoying a fantastic game audio experience doesn't have to put you in the poor house. Leveraging what it has learned from previous entries in the series, Kingston Technology's HyperX has now formally launched the surprisingly affordable HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset. It's only $50, making it one of the cheapest, high quality gaming headsets on the market today.
When HyperX revealed the original Cloud, many people questioned why they would get into this market segment. They really wowed us. Then, things got even better with the Cloud II, followed by the dramatically different Cloud Revolver. These have all been great and they've all been affordable, but not quite like this.
With the HyperX Cloud Stinger, you get a lightweight headset with powerful sound and audio precision, as well as the HyperX signature memory foam for "ultra comfort" during extended gaming sessions. The ear cups rotate up to 90 degrees for added comfort too. And yes, there's still the microphone, which you can now swivel to mute, plus a volume slider.
Compatible with PCavailable now for $49.99. Peep the specs in the press release below.
