I’ve long been a fan of HyperX’s gaming headsets thanks to their good sound and best-in-class comfort, but they always seemed to trail the competition when it came to special features. That could all change this March with the $149 HyperX Cloud Revolver S, which is the first gaming headset to offer plug-and-play Dolby surround sound without the need for any extra software.

Key Specs and Features

  • The Cloud Revolver S is nearly identical to the standard Cloud Revolver, though it trades the original model’s red highlights and glossy finish for a matte, black-and-white look that’s less aggressive but every bit as slick.
  • The headset features a USB dongle that lets you activate Dolby Headphone 7.1 sound with the push of a button, while also providing controls for mic muting, game and chat volume, and three separate EQ settings: bass boost, flat and vocal-heavy. If you prefer to use the Revolver S with your gaming console or mobile device, you can simply unplug the USB box and use the standard 3.5mm audio jack.
  • The new headset retains the Revolver’s sturdy suspension headband and memory foam earcups, though it has a wider design built to be more comfortable.
