HyperX Cloud Core gaming headset: review and testing

Only one year was required for HyperX that is a department of Kingston, for advertizing and popularization the product lineup with the title «HyperX Cloud». Excellent build quality, combined with a good sound and these are the main features that characterize the product lineup HyperX Cloud.

We have already introduced you to two models: HyperX Cloud and HyperX Cloud II. The second of them features the support for 7.1-channel surround sound and is equipped with a separate sound card controls.

In this review we will talk about a new model produced in 2015 HyperX Cloud Core, which uses the same design as its predecessor, but at the same time has a minimum package that can help reduce the final cost. And for the comparison, we will use more equipped version HyperX Cloud that is represented in white color.

The back side of the two boxes provides more detailed information, but a full technical description is absent. The official website contains a detailed description of the product.
