How exciting can Gaming headsets get? Can you use it for Music too? HyperX has come up with flagship headset called Cloud Revolver S and they call it the “the ultimate gaming headset”. and the letter S stand for Surround. The HyperX approach to gaming peripherals is very different, engaging and appealing to gamers. Moving a step forward from its predecessor, Revolver S pushes its boundaries to excite even the music enthusiasts with its amazing cinematic experience. It comes with plug & play Dolby Surround Sound 7.1 module and has its own equalizer.
Out of the box, you basically get four pieces of equipment – the headphones itself, which comes in a matte black with white accents. A detachable adjustable microphone. An extension cable with the splitter for an old-style separate mic and headphone jack and a USB cable with a new Dolby Surround 7.1 module.
“ The Dolby Digital Surround 7.1 moduleis the biggest reason why I would recommend you to buy HyperX Cloud Revolver S. ”
At a first glance, the Cloud Revolver S looks practically identical to the original Revolver headset which has 50mm directional drivers. After paying close attention to the fine details, they have eliminated the glossy finish on the ear cups and replaced it with the soft touch rubberized material. HyperX has also replaced the red accents with white and this includes headband stitching. The lightweight design and an improved headband on top make Cloud Revolver S one of the most comfortable headphones available in the market.
The microphone is detachable and plugs into the headset via the 3.5mm connector. If you don’t require it, you can just unplug and store it safely. It features noise cancellation that removes almost all background noise without affecting voice quality.
The sound quality of the HyperX Revolver S is superb, both for gaming and playing music. There is a new digital sound processor which offers a slim profile. The Dolby Digital Surround 7.1 module is the biggest reason why I would recommend you to buy HyperX Cloud Revolver S. This module has headphone and microphone volume scroll wheel on the right side, equalizer preset button on the left toggle between enhanced vocals, flat eq and bass boost. On the middle, when the Dolby button is pressed, the little processor inside the module activates simulated 7.1 surround sound which is very effective. While playing fps games, I was able to easily identify if someone is behind or in the front. The amount of details offered by the Cloud Revolvers is incredible and immersive. Revolver S also didn’t disappoint me while listening to music as it offered higher frequencies with clear sound without any distortions.
