HyperX Cloud Stinger Review

HyperX gaming headset review. Updated 2022 Amazon pricing, audio specs, and review - using scores built around ratings such as volume control, material quality, sound quality, battery life and noise cancellation. Are these HyperX headphones right for a PC gamer?

Should you buy the HyperX Cloud Stinger?

PCGameBenchmark has reviewed pretty much every PC gaming headset available on Amazon. We've ignored some of the smaller and generic brands. We've filtered to only show the best gaming headsets wireless and wired available to buy right now - this HyperX gaming headset made our 2022 list.

Now's a great time to buy a new PC gaming headset. So many games are enhanced with great audio, there are always HyperX deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2022) and there's a massive range to chose from. High quality sound is super important when you’re playing and the speakers built into gaming monitors are pretty rubbish. If you’re looking to hear someone creep up on you in Fortnite or love the bass on Apex Legends, you need a proper immersive audio experience and the privacy that brings.

This black headset weighs 0.61 lb (0.28 kg).

PCGameBenchmark ratings are built up from the scores the Amazon community give the most important aspects of a PC gaming headset. We merge those scores to create a percentage rating.

On volume control this headset scores 3.7 stars out of five, while sound quality itself is rated at 4.1 stars. Specifically on whether the sound is good for gaming these HyperX headphones rate at 4.0.

Noise cancellation rates at 3.7 stars.

Build quality is important - you will want your headphones to last - these score a 4.1. Put all that together and we have our final percentage score.

The HyperX Cloud Stinger is a wired headset built for long-term comfort. It’s based around an adjustable, durable steel slider but, at just 275g and with HyperX signature memory foam cups, it’s easy to wear for extended periods. The Stinger’s 50mm directional drivers position sound directly into the ear for audio precision and optimum sound quality. The swivel-to-mute noise-cancellation microphone allows you to give crisp, clear instructions only as and when needed, while the intuitive volume control on the headset cup allows on-the-fly adjustments.

Will you be able to get a HyperX Cloud Stinger Black Friday 2022 deal? Without a doubt, yes you will, which is great for gamers across the board. The HyperX Cloud Stinger is compatible with PC, Xbox One (via an adaptor, sold separately), PS4, Wii U and mobile devices with CTIA standard connectors. It’s also good to go with any PC extension cable with dual 3.5mm stereo and mic plugs.

This popular headset is frequently discounted, so look out for what could be some jaw-dropping savings. Be sure to look for a HyperX Cloud Stinger Amazon discount deal in the Black Friday 2022 sale.
