And HyperX Cloud Stinger Core gaming headsets are also added to the same series.

By the way, let me tell you that HyperX is selling this gaming headphones under the name of best for PS4 and PS5 but there is nothing to worry, they are compatible with all your devices.

So as you know, I believe in a brief review, so if you want information about all the variants of HyperX Cloud Stinger Core in detail, then you can keep this review continuous.

Design & Build Quality

If you have read my previous article, you must have noticed that the design of HyperX Cloud Stinger Core is similar to that of HyperX Cloud Stinger gaming headset.


However, some things are slightly different, such as the difference in the cushioning of the ear cups, as memory foam was not used in it.

Although you have been provided with a lot of soft ear cushions, the memory foam will definitely be lacking.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Core build quality

The rest, if you talk about its headband, it is made of mate plastic, whose build quality is very good. It is very flexible, making it very durable.

For better support on the headband you are given padding which provide better fitting. Even if you have a very large head, you can wear them easily.

Overall, you should not have any complaints about its design and build quality. I have used it a lot and believe me, they are quite comfortable too.

You do not get a braided cable which gives a disappointment feeling but I am satisfied with its cable quality.

But one thing that can make some gamers bothered is that it has cable attached with both ear cups which looks annoying.

However they are not tangled due to the good cable quality, which is a good thing.

The cable end is connected to a 3.5mm jack which makes it multi-device compatible.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Gaming headphones did not give you a detachable mic.

Although its voice quality is very good for you, but if it comes with detachable feature then some gamers would get more convenience.

I can say with certainty that HyperX Cloud Stinger Core headsets are very good for streamers as they are able to deliver your voice much better.

The mic is quite bendable, which I liked very much for its quality. This allows you to place it near your mouth for better voice delivery during streaming.

In HyperX Cloud Stinger Core gaming headphones, you have been given an in-line controller, whose build quality is quite good.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Core controls

In this, you have been given a volume wheel with mic mute slider, with the help of that you can easily control the volume of the headset.


As I said earlier, in HyperX Cloud Stinger Core you have been given 3.5mm jack, which makes it multi-device compatible.

It can be connected not only with PS4, PS5 or Xbox but also easily compatible with any smartphone.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Core compatibility

Even if you are a PC gamer, you can easily connect it to your PC. If your PC or laptop does not have a 3.5mm jack, you will need a 3.5mm to USB adapter which you will have to purchase separately.

The HyperX Cloud Stinger Core gaming headset also performs quite well in compatibility.


This headset absolutely weighs nothing like there is no weight to these at all. And because of that they also become more comfortable.

For those gamers who do long gaming sessions, lightening of the headset becomes even more important, so they will not have any problem with it.

Apart from this, although you will not see the cushioning of memory foam in them, their material is very soft which provides you comfort for a long time.

These are very convenient due to the steel slider and padding in the headband, due to which you can enhance your gaming experience.

Overall you will get a much better comfort.

Their sound quality is very similar to that of the HyperX Cloud Stinger gaming headset.

it’s not a surround sound headset but I felt really good awareness, really good space in my sound.

The base is also quite good in this. It’s not a flat sound, it’s not a tinny sound, everything came through extremely well.

I really have no clue but when I plugged him into the switch there’s just this whole other level of sound.

The volume really loud, bass was really punchy, it just had an incredible overall feel like honestly I would almost say that this headset is made for the Nintendo switch.

Now again the same thing can be said for plugging this into the PC.

Gaming wise you’re not gonna find a better pair of gaming headset in this price range.
