What HyperX Had to Say
“The HyperX Cloud Stinger Core is a lightweight and durable gaming headset at a great price. Its immersive sound quality is powered by 40mm drivers with clear mids, highs, and impactful bass. Improve your chatting experience with your friend’s thanks to its noise-cancelling microphone which cuts out ambient noise and puts the focus on your voice. You can optionally add in virtual 7.1 surround sound1 powered by NGENUITY software in either a wired or a wireless version. Surround sound adds another level of immersion that also helps you pick up sounds of in-game enemies with more accurate positional audio. With the wireless option, you can free your setup of cords without worrying about audio latency. No matter what option you choose, the Cloud Stinger Core is a reliable gaming headset that’s always ready for daily gaming.” – HyperX
