HyperX® is now shipping their HyperX Cloud RevolverTM S headset.
Their recent launch of the Cloud Stinger had us quite excited, and you can read more on that here. Where the Cloud Stinger is a lighter, entry-level headset, the Cloud Revolver S brings out the big guns with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound, a noise cancelling microphone, and more. They bring back the same top end comfort with their signature memory foam that we have come to love from HyperX. If you’re looking for a higher end headset with all the bells and whistles, look no further than the HyperX Cloud Revolver S!
HyperX®, a division of Kingston® Technology Company, Inc., announced it is now shipping the HyperX Cloud RevolverTM S with plug-and-play Dolby TM 7.1 Surround Sound. HyperX has integrated Dolby HeadphoneTM technology into a new USB dongle that delivers immersive audio at the touch of a button. HyperX’s signature memory foam and new wide headband design brings comfort for endless hours of gameplay. Designed for use by professional gamers and esports teams globally, the premium headset also features multi-platform support, 50mm drivers and a noise-cancelling microphone.
Cloud Revolver S continues the HyperX tradition of award-winning comfort and competitive audio performance, while adding Dolby Headphone surround sound realism with a new HyperX audio dongle that is included with each headset. The Dolby Headphone 7.1 channel surround sound environment provides an immersive gaming experience – putting gamers right in the middle of the action for gameplay advantage.
In addition to Dolby surround sound, there are three additional sound profiles: bass, flat response and chat profiles. The Cloud Revolver S sound stage features unique design driver technology that allows gamers to visualize sounds placed around them at different angles and distances.
