HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Wireless Review

How Much Does it Cost?

The HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Wireless Gaming Headset is available directly from HyperX for just £74.99. That’s a very competitive price for a wireless gaming headset. All that wireless tech, additional batteries, etc, adds to the cost, but you’ll struggle to find a better-equipped headset for less! It’s cheaper than the equivalent from Turtle Beach, SteelSeries, Logitech, Razer, and more.


The latest headset from HyperX might not be their most extreme, high-end, expensive, flagship model. However, is clear that it still has a lot to offer to gamers, and just general PC users overall. At this price range it’s certainly competitive and one of the more affordable wireless gaming headsets out there right now, at least for many of the big-name brands.

For what your paying, you do get a lot in return. HyperX promises a battery life of around 17 hours. I got a little under 14 hours, but for the purpose of this review, I was running the volume pretty hard most of that time. That being said, it’s unlikely that you’ll be having a single gaming session of that length. Even if you do get close to that run time, the USB Type-C port means you can quickly charge the headset, or even charge it while playing from something like a USB power bank.

The headset is very well suited to gaming. It has a really good quality microphone, drivers that really put the wow factor into the game audio, and it’s comfortable. Overall, it really ticks all the basic boxes for a gaming headset. However, I found it just as enjoyable for listening to my favourite albums, enjoying some YouTube content, and watching a movie. A good headset should sound great no matter what you throw at it and that’s exactly what you’ll get from the Cloud Stinger Core Wireless.

Should I Buy One?

A stylish design, durable build quality, comfortable ergonomic, and a fantastic microphone and driver combo make this one of the most competitive wireless gaming headsets out there right now. While I could argue that there are better headsets out there, you’ll certainly have to pay a lot more for them, but I can’t think of a single wireless headset that is better for less.
