This review is going to take a look at another set of gaming headphones from Kingston's HyperX high-performance product division. We recently covered their studio grade HyperX Cloud Revolvers, and a little over a year ago we covered their original HyperX Cloud pro gaming headset. This time around we have the HyperX CloudX, which are very similar to the Cloud set we looked at in 2015, but this time they are degined and officially licensed for use with XBOX gaming systems.

The CloudX headset is shown in the promotional image above, where we see it follows the typical blueprint, with ample earcups, a padded headband, and a (detachable) boom microphone. Before taking a look at the headset provided for review, let's look at some published data on the HyperX CloudX, as taken from the official product page on the HyperX Gaming website...

HyperX CloudX™ Pro Gaming Headset is designed for Xbox and tested and approved by Microsoft. It works with the Xbox Elite Wireless controller and other Xbox One controllers with a 3.5mm stereo headset jack and provides connectivity from the headset to console and mobile devices. With additional Windows compatibility, it comes with a 2M PC extension cable with stereo and mic plugs. HyperX CloudX features immersive in-game audio so you can lose yourself in the game while you’re winning.

This headset will work well with any device that has a typical 1/8 inch stereo jack, including your PC and mobile device... What makes these targeted to XBOX use is that you can plug them in to the XBOX Elite Wireless controller (or other XBOX One controllers with a stereo jack). This way, you do not have to have a cord running all the way back to the console, but just the much more practical distance from your head to your hands!
