Once sim­ply a mem­ory com­pany mak­ing RAM, HyperX has been mak­ing a big push into the pe­riph­eral mar­ket this year, re­leas­ing some ad­vanced gam­ing key­boards, mice, and head­sets. Next stop? PS4.

You may have al­ready seen its Cloud se­ries head­sets, which have been spot­ted all around the world thanks to HyperX’s fo­cus on com­fort – they’re a favourite of many eS­ports play­ers, have been worn by Snoop Dogg, and were even used by FIFA video as­sis­tant ref­er­ees in the 2018 World Cup. The head­sets have al­ways been com­pat­i­ble with the con­sole, but the HyperX Cloud for PlayS­ta­tion 4 is of­fi­cially li­censed by Sony, and built with PS4 play­ers in mind.

A durable alu­minium frame keeps the HyperX Cloud from feel­ing cheap, and is nice and sturdy on the head. Mem­ory-foam-padded ear cush­ions are the key to com­fort, mean­ing that even long gam­ing ses­sions with head­phones on don’t leave your ears sore and un­com­fort­able – we’ve all been there! In-line au­dio con­trol makes it eas­ier to ad­just the sound on the fly, and the au­dio qual­ity is of a high stan­dard – su­per-clear, with some lovely bassy tones that gives any ad­ven­ture on PS4 that ex­tra level of im­mer­sion. Some games def­i­nitely ben­e­fit from wrap­ping sound all around your ears, whether that’s jam­ming out on Thumper or just tak­ing in God Of War’s world. For mul­ti­player, the HyperX has a noise-can­celling mi­cro­phone. But it’s easy to de­tach it for when you’d rather go it alone, too.

PADDED CUSH­IONS ARE THE KEY TO COM­FORT.

Black with a taste­ful PSblue trim, this head­set will look great in your PlayS­ta­tion col­lec­tion.

Has in-line au­dio con­trols, mem­ory foam pad­ding, and a de­tach­able mic.
