HyperX Cloud Flight Review | The God Of Console Headphones

These headphones will make you break free from the cable connections and let you taste the freedom of the delivered wireless advantages! Even though they can’t be considered as budget headsets, they still are able to provide great value in exchange for your money.

The HyperX Cloud Flight is a good wireless gaming headset while it also offers well-balanced sound quality and its decent soundstage and great imaging will allow you to pinpoint the position of your enemies accurately.

In terms of the aesthetics, they are a bit more lightweight thanks to their plastic build.

To continue, they come with a great detachable boom mic, which is very useful for playing with friends or online teammates. Their USB dongle for wireless usage is compatible on PC and PS4, but not on the Xbox One. You can also detach the mic and use the headphones wired for your daily commute, but they won’t isolate much noise and are leaky at higher volumes. On the upside, their battery life is great when the LED lights are turned off.

From a design perspective, the HyperX features a durable black design that has red accents included for making them look aggressive and a true choice for any gamer! Its closed cup design is accompanied by a steel slider that is made of high-quality material that will make the overall headset withstand your daily usage.
You can rotate the earcups for 90-degrees in order to match your preferences, and they also have LED lighting effects which will affect your overall gaming ambient.

Its removable microphone is coated in black color and relies on the noise-canceling technology which means that you can be heard clearly and accurately without capturing any background noise.

Now, let’s talk about its features!

As we mentioned earlier, this is an all-in-one headset, so you can use it for gaming on a PC, PS4 or PS4 pro, but also it is compatible with devices that support a 3.5mm connection making it a really versatile device.

To be more specific, this gaming headset has above-average connectivity. It shines with a very low 20ms latency for a wireless headset, which is perfect for video content like movies and gaming; it is much better than most Bluetooth connection headphones. However, they only connect wirelessly via the provided USB dongle that’s compatible with PC and PS4 but unfortunately, not with the Xbox One. You can also use them wired with the included 1/8” TRS cable but the mic will not work on all platforms when wired. On the upside, the wireless range is quite good, and you can walk around a small apartment without losing the connection.

You can quickly access the controls for making LED adjustments, muting the microphone and adjusting the volume thanks to its strategically placed controls which will let you do all these things effortlessly in order to ensure that you won’t be distracted during your gaming time.

The sound quality is near perfect thanks to the Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound that will upgrade your intuitive senes during your gameplay and make you more competitive and a hard-to-catch target.

The HyperX Cloud Flight is a good sounding closed-back over-ear gaming headset which means they have an excellent bass performance overall with a good and balanced mid-range and decent treble response.

However, one thing that I didn’t like about this headset is that the manufacturer didn’t include noise-canceling features. They can block a decent amount of sound in higher frequencies, but not really in the bass range, meaning engine rumbles won’t be masked. They also don’t reduce ambient chatter by a great amount. If you decide to use them outside or in public transit with a wired connection, then expect a good amount of noise seeping into your audio.

Another great thing about these headphones is the longevity of their battery, which can last for up to 30 hours of usage which will make this model be your greatest companion while playing a variety of games!

Moreover, for the price you pay, this headset is a perfect wireless addition to your gaming set. In other words, it’s definitely worth it because they deliver exceptional performance and a quality built.

Overall, you should definitely take these headphones into consideration if you’re looking for quality sound without paying a large amount of money and if you ever decide to purchase it, this model will ensure that you’re going to feel the most of your favorite games!
