HyperX Cloud Revolver Multi-platform E-Sports Gaming Wire Headset with Removable Microphone

Good Cans Ruined By Band

UncleGamer

Pros: Decent Bass, good sound stage, comfortable

Cons: Mic is not very good, headband has a ring that is easy to hear

With the revolve Kingston stepped away from the great design of the original Clouds and decided to go in a new (more gamey) design direction. According to my source at Kingston one of the goals was to open up the sound stage more, something closer to open back in effect.   I was initially impressed with the comfort of the Revolver design. It felt good on my head, seeming to sit a bit...

Sennheiser G4ME ZERO Over-Ear Gaming Headset

Pros: Great gaming sound, Great mic. Best closed back soundstage I have ever heard. Rediculously comfortable, excelent build

Cons: Harsh before burn in, Large condenser mic needs lots of power, fatuiging music listening. Bad pairing with Creative soundcards and SBX pro studio

Basically the HD 555's with a mic attached. Good all around performance for music and games.

Sennheiser G4ME ZERO Over-Ear Gaming Headset

“I made a huge mistake when I got these.... First thing I did was plug them into my phone and try to listen to some music... Bad idea! This is one of those headphones that I wouldn't even listen to until after 50 or so hours of burn in. The sound signature of these is specifically designed for gaming. Before burn in there is a very strong harsh and unpleasant spike in the upper mids. After burn...” --killeraxemannic

SKULLCANDY SLYR Circumaural Headset

“I bought these due to morbid curiosity; Skullcandy made a gaming headset? I figured I try them out because I was getting tired of my X12s, which had replaced my X11s. The SLYRs have now replaced my X12s. One fact to know about these headphones are that they were mostly designed by Astro Gaming, as Skullcandy bought them. This changes everything The sound quality is astounding and...” --Koenigseggfire

RAZER Kraken Pro Circumaural Analog Gaming Headset - Black

“The Razer Kraken Pro is a gaming headset created by Razer and bears a cool product name with a CAD$110 price tag. Mine comes in green unlike the picture above however they're all the same so don't freak out. Anyways.   Build and looks: The Kraken is build with cheap plastics and (fake?) cheap leather. The construction is sturdy, which is expected. However the plastics and leathery...” --2015071

Sennheiser G4ME ONE Over-Ear Gaming Headset

“ So the Game One seemed like the answer to all my gaming needs, especially as an upgrade to my ageing Logitech G430/230. An integrated volume control and mutable mic go towards this being an amazing all round headset for gaming. The build quality is very nice and I love the styling of the headset (Black/Red). The sound is very clear, compared to other gaming headsets I have used including...” --Thekarma

“Just got these as an upgrade from my Philips SHG7980 headset. Straight out of the box, they sound great, no equalizer setting modification required. Just plug the headset and get immersed in movies and games. The bass is definitely what makes this headphone shine.   Club/rock/dubstep music: perfect with Asus Xonar DGX sound-card (dolby headphone: enabled) Gaming: best when used...” --b3roldan

Razer HP-1 Barracuda 8-Channel Gaming Headphones

“These are my everyday gaming and music cans for like 10 years now through two sets of them. The bass response is unparalleled with USB powered built-in amplification and a dedicated 40 mm subwoofer driver. I imagine to get the same bass you would have to buy another can with a dedicated bass driver, and some do exist from different makers, but no one did it as clean as the razer barracuda....” --indopler

Wireless Stereo Headset

Wireless Stereo Headset

“Overall i would say the PS3 headset was a good purchase. It worked well and maintained its quality throughout lifetime of 3 years.   Price of $99.99 is too expensive considering the quality you are getting. The creaking of the headset is amplified when put on and can get extremely annoying.   Very cool design with a sleek way of adjusting volume, balance of voice and game, and...” --Eschock
