HyperX Announces the Best Gaming Headset Under $50


The lightweight HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset offers powerful sound, audio precision, and ultra comfort… all for a price that doesn’t break the bank.

HyperX a division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc, has released a headset designed to “make the casual gamer feel like a pro.” This headset features signature memory foam and 50mm dimensional drivers which deliver a comfortable, high quality sound experience at a very good price.

HyperX Cloud Stinger weighs only 275 grams and is built with 90-degree rotating ear cups, which provide hours of comfort for gaming. The 50mm dimensional drivers are tilted to position sound directly into the ear, which results in a broader and more accurate in-game sound. The microphone has clear sound quality as well in addition to being noise-cancelling.

The HyperX Cloud Stinger also offers a swivel to mute the microphone option, an adjustable steel slider, and volume controls on the headset. You can also experience enhanced audio on POC or console, or plug into a mobile device to wear the headset on the go.
