HyperX Cloud Revolver Headset Detailed Features
Now we’ll take a closer look at some of the detailed features that the HyperX Cloud Revolver Headset has to offer.
One of the signature features of the HyperX headsets is the removable microphone. Unlike the Cloud II headset, the Cloud Revolver does not come with a filler cap for the microphone hole should you choose to leave it detached for a period of time. It is also worth noting that the microphone on the Cloud Revolver does not feature a wind sock like it’s headset brethren.
The HyperX Cloud Revolver headset utilizes a two piece cord to facilitate it’s functions with multiple devices. When using the Cloud Revolver headset with a PS4, XBox One, or mobile device, the audio control box is not used as it is not needed. When you want to utilize the headset with a PC, then you’ll need the stereo headphone and microphone jacks on the audio control box’s 2 meter cord. You will also note that all the cords are braided, such as it has become the standard in gaming gear.
On the bottom of the audio control box, there is a convenient plastic clip so that you may position the box anywhere on your person for easy access.
Featured on the top of the audio control box is a large, easy to use microphone mute button. Along the side of the audio control box is a volume potentiometer. During the testing, the potentiometer dial was smooth and there was no crackling when adjusting the dial.
As you can see above the HyperX Cloud Revolver Headset features a unique design combined with a steel frame. The steel frame, while it feels durable, does come with some cons. It’s lightweight, but noisy when sitting on your head, basically turning the steel bars into tuning forks that translate directly to the ear cups when bumped. The free floating memory foam headband works very well, but is a little too strong for prolonged comfort. The stiffness of the spring loaded headband will more than likely ease over time as it gets used.
