HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Wireless Review

A Closer Look

The design of this headset really is fantastic, play well to the strength of the new PlayStation 5. It has a matching matte white finish that looks pretty striking on its own, but also some subtle blue hints around the drivers, giving a nod to the official PlayStation colours. However, it’s just a nice looking headset overall and even if you’re only going to use this on PC, I think a lot of people will appreciate the overall aesthetic.

Down the side of the headset you will find a simple HyperX logo, nothing too over the top no RGB lighting, not even simple LED lighting; just a crisp and clean looking design overall. Another important thing to note here is that the drivers use a closed-back design. This means the sound will be locked in and ambient noise will be blocked out a lot more.

This is further enhanced by the thick memory foam padding on the ear cups, which comes with a rubber gasket around the lower edge which again will help lock in the sound.

The memory foam is very forgiving, and comes with lovely and soft cloth covering that provides exceptional comfort during those long gaming sessions. However, it’s the overall weight of the headset that provides the most comfort, it feels lightweight enough for comfort, but it still has a weight of quality about it too.

There is a good range of ergonomic adjustments available too, allowing you to tip the drivers a few degrees in each direction.

It might not seem like much, but it can make a huge difference to the overall fit and I found it to be very comfortable overall.

You get quite a lot of padding on the headband too, further enhancing the overall comfort of the headset. A lot of headsets recently seem to skimp on the headband material, I’m glad to see HyperX haven’t followed that trend.

It’s also nice to see a headset that has such a long-range of adjustment in the headband slider. I often find many headsets never extend far enough provide me with a comfortable fit, but this one has more than room to spare even for me. That being said, the minimum size makes the headset small enough to be used by children too.
