Kingston has released the HyperX Cloud Stinger, an affordable entry-level gaming headset in its popular HyperX product line. The Cloud Stinger sports a 50-mm speaker in each of its memory foam-lined ear cups. An adjustable steel slider mechanism attaches to those ear cups via a pair of 90° swivels. Kingston says the swivels allow more comfortable fit in long gaming sessions as well as making it easy to fold the headphones and put them away.
The Cloud Stinger headset weighs 9.7 oz (or 275g). The swiveling boom acts as a mute switch for the noise-canceling microphone. A volume slider is integrated into the left ear cup for easy in-game volume adjustments. The 51" (1.3m) cord terminates in a single four-pole 3.5-mm minijack. The retail package includes an extension cable which ends with separate stereo audio and microphone plugs. The HyperX Cloud Stinger headset will be available tomorrow for $50.
