Design & Build Quality

HyperX Cloud Stinger is made of plastic, due to which they are much lighter. It mainly uses black color, on which you will see a matte finish.

The design of the ear cups of this headset is quite attractive, which I liked very much.

Although these are not very good in portability but they can be rotated up to 90 degrees, which according to me is quite a good thing.

Its headband has been reinforced with thin steel due to which they are flexible which you can adjust as per your convenience.

Since these are over-ear headphones, they cover your ears completely. I liked their fitting very much.

In this, you are given 3.5mm cable, although they are not braided cable but its quality is quite good.

Overall, its design and build quality are quite good. You will not have any complaints in this.

They are also very durable, so you don’t have to buy another headset again and again.

In this, you have been given swivel-to-mute noise-cancellation microphone. The quality of which I liked very much.

To mute the mic, you have to swivel the microphone as above. The mic will automatically go into mute mode as soon as you swivel it.

One feature that I liked very much is that when you swivel it, you hear a clicky sound in it, so that we know that it has been mute.

You have also been given the feature of noise-cancellation which although it does not work so well but still provides a decent quality.


Like most gaming headphones, it does not give you some extra controls. However, the controls have been upgraded a bit.

In this, you have been given a volume slider above the ear cup, with the help of which you can increase or decrease the volume of the headset.

On the downside, in this you are not given any call receiving/declining button nor any button has been provided for music control.

Which I found a bit disappointing because if you had been given a dedicated button for calls in this too, it would have been quite convenient.

Since you have been given 3.5mm jack, then all the devices which can use 3.5mm jack are compatible with it.

You can easily use it in your mobile as well. But there are some smartphones in which it cannot be compatible.

Thanks to its 3.5mm jack, you can connect it comfortably to your PC, PS4 or Xbox as well.


In HyperX Cloud Stinger gaming headphones you get very good sound quality. In this, you are given 50mm directional drivers for audio precision.

And this is what makes it the best in this price range. I have found the HyperX Cloud Stinger’s sound output to be the best in this price range compared to the rest of the headset.

You can try any game, the sound output of all the games is going to be quite good.

The bass accuracy of the HyperX Cloud Stinger is quite decent. Even if you are a bass music lover, you are going to get a very good bassy sound.

These are the perfect headset for EDM and hip-hop fans.

Good For

  • Gamers looking for an affordable gaming headset
  • Who needs a good mic
  • Good for those who want better sound output
  • Need a headset with better design and build quality
  • Who needs a gaming headset with a good bass

Overall if you want a great affordable gaming headset then you can buy it
