Value & Price-range
Being available for $92.99, the HyperX Cloud is probably the best option in its price-bracket. The angular shapes, brightly colored plastic and mandatory light-shows are eschewed in favor of a more conservative look, a terrific build quality, and a great deal of versatility.
HyperX is in the mid-range bracket for gaming headsets. It's a bit cheaper than the Takstar Pro80, and oddly enough, cheaper than the QH-90. Overall, this is a music-oriented pair of cans, one that didn't forgo its original design. This means increased build quality, and a pleasant listening experience, with gaming becoming a secondary consideration, especially competitive gaming where sound matters.
From my perspective, the trade-off is well worth it. There's just not enough flat and detailed gaming headsets on the market, and almost none under the $100 mark. There are even fewer gamer cans so well built, ready to be used on the go.
