HyperX becomes a gamer's favorite

The HyperX brand is the gaming division of Kingston, which went solo a few years ago and has grown in influence since then. For example, HyperX Cloud's first headset was co-developed with esports brand QPAD, won a bunch of medals from gaming magazines, and has become the staple weapon of many serious esports teams.

Stringer for beginners

In turn, the hero of today's review Stinger Core is the most affordable headset in the Kingston/HyperX line. But even with an eye on a limited low-cost, the company's engineers were able to make a really good headset without weaknesses. It was developed primarily for gamers and in games the headset shows itself perfectly. Explosions, shooting and Hollywood special effects sound juicy and spectacular in it. If you don't know about the modest price tag of $50, you might think that they cost 2-3 times more. But for listening to music, they are not very suitable, one feels imprisoned for games.

Friendly with consoles

The microphone is attached to a long flexible shaft with a wide range of position adjustments. The quality of his work can be estimated at four with a plus. Interlocutors can easily recognize your voice in the game's voice chat or in separate communication programs, and the noise reduction system works quite clearly, separating your speech from surrounding sounds. Despite the positioning in Stinger Core, there were a couple of interesting innovations. The microphone can be turned off by simply moving it to the vertical position. Well, compatibility with PS4 and Xbox One will add attractiveness to the headset in the eyes of console owners.

Total 215 grams

Playing Cloud Stinger for many hours is really very convenient, because with a weight of only 215 grams and thanks to comfortable cups, the headset is practically not felt on the head. After velor and artificial leather, the breathable fabric ear cushions seem especially comfortable, in summer the ears practically do not sweat in them. Although, they wear out much faster than leatherette.
