Kingston's foray into gaming audio hits the right notes.

The HyperX Cloud headphones are unusual because they come from a company usually associated with memory, but through  Kingston’s partnership with headphone specialist QPAD, here they are. We did attempt to identify a current QPAD model that resembled this, and couldn’t, so this is likely a bespoke design for Kingston.

For the price they’re fair value, with impressive build and material quality that’s a pleasure to hold and use, and can handle rough handling. We like the removable mic boom, and its small rubber cover that plugs up the hole the mic connects to when not in use. They’re extremely comfortable, too, despite the Cloud’s heavier-than-usual weight (aluminium is used in the cups and the band). The drivers are 53mm, which is relatively large for gaming headphones at this price. Movies and music had a somewhat neutral tonal balance, but games were clear and crisp. Good all-rounders.
