    Kingston KHX-H3CL/WR reviews

    HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would like clearer instructions for phone I am not a gamer; I bought these to be able to plug into my phone or computer for meetings and other phone calls related to volunteer work. When it arrived, I could not figure out how to connect it to my devices because I was trying to get the right port. Then the light dawned, I had to put the two cables into a 2 to one jack. Sometimes the input is strange so I have to rotate the place where the two cables connect into the converter jack. That being said, it has been worth every penny; the quality is great for my needs. I've been using them for over 3 months, at least 4 days a week. My perspective as a non-gamer & non-audiophile

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headset for gaming. I use this headset for gaming and at work to set up computers for advanced placement language exams and participating in webinars. It excels at all three. It's very comfortable for those 3 hour long training sessions. The microphone is as close to perfect as I have experienced. That being said I use much more expensive headphones to listen to music. I am an audiophile. If you listen to mp3 or flac files on your phone this will more than enough to provide a awesome experience. If you are using a 24 bit DAC, a quality headphone amp and HD files you might want to look at something that is designed to provide a higher level of sound quality. I give it 5 stars because it exceeds my expectations at this price level. I recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound, comfortable headset To start out with, I use this headset primarily to play video games. I use it for long periods of time and there has never been a time where I found it highly uncomfortable. Side note, with my old headset if my glasses came out of place it was hard for me to push them back. I wouldn't be able to without lifting up the headphone. These allow me to just push them back easily. The sound quality is good, but in all honesty I'm not one to ask about these things. Bottom line: the headsets come with a lot of add ons that I love. The ability to switch out ear pieces is really nice. I also love the add on mute button. The mic seems to work okay... I know that sometimes it messes up for both me and my boyfriend who has the same headset, but overall it's not terrible. I would definitely recommend this headset, because at the end of the day it has: Good sound It's comfortable An added on mic

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic! Great headset! I can now hear all of the aural nuances built into the newest Xbox games that even a 7.1 home theater doesn't offer. Highly recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice headset, but one DOA accessory Bought these for my PC power using daughter. She loves them: the looks and the sound. Took a star away for one of the included accessories, the inline amp. Didn't function straight out of the box. Would have returned it all for replacement, but as my daughter had no intention of using it asked that I not bother.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Headset for Gaming and Music This headset is one of the best I owned so far. They sounded great in gaming. I also use this for my phone using the included adapter for mobile usage, music and watching videos. Good on concealing outside noise.
