It’s time for our review of the HyperX Cloud MIX Gaming Headset.

HyperX Cloud MIX is a versatile wired gaming headset that converts to a lightweight portable Bluetooth headset. While using the wired connection, it is capable of pumping out rich Hi-Res Audio at frequencies from 10Hz to 40kHz, so you can hear details and nuances in your audio you might have missed. When the real world beckons, answer the call and unplug to switch to the wireless Bluetooth mode for up to 20 hours of use.

The HyperX custom-designed 40mm Dual Chamber Drivers separate the bass from the mids and highs to cut distortion and provide smoother audio. Featuring a tough aluminum frame, Cloud MIX is designed to withstand the perils of both gaming and life on the go. Whether you’re playing long into the night or out until early morning, the soft memory foam ear cushions give you signature HyperX comfort.

The headset includes a flexible, detachable boom mic and features a built-in mic to make it a more travel-ready Bluetooth headset. Cloud MIX features in-line audio controls for PC and console, with intuitive onboard controls for wireless mode. It’s compatible in wired mode with platforms with 3.5mm ports and compatible in wireless mode with Bluetooth-ready media devices.

A Closer Look

Final Thoughts

The new HyperX Cloud Mix headset is very comfortable. You can wear it for extended periods of time without causing any discomfort, and if you plan on having a marathon gaming session that’s certainly important. The headset is also very light so can be carried around easily.

The ear cups are very soft and will fit most ears and the band over the head strap is also soft too, and the memory foam works very well!

The microphone is detachable so if you don’t want to use it you can just remove it or leave it off and it won’t get in the way, and if you do want to use it then it just fits simply into place.

The headset comes with all the cables you need, including a charging cable, so you don’t have to look around for anything else. Although the beauty of this headset is connecting it to your device via Bluetooth.

There is also a Bluetooth microphone built into the headset you can use as well, although the quality isn’t as good as using the external mic. Talking of Bluetooth, all the buttons you need are on the headset itself, including volume, and call buttons.

Pairing the headset to a Bluetooth device is very simple and only takes a few moments.

The headset has a built in battery which can last up to 20 hours – so basically even the heaviest of gaming sessions should be covered! And that’s only if you want to use Bluetooth – if you want to go wired then you don’t have to worry about the battery.

So the most important part – what does it sound like? Well it sounds very good actually! In wired mode the sound is excellent, using Bluetooth it’s still very very good!

The headset also comes with a neat little carry bag so you can keep the headsafe safe along with the cables too.

So if you are in the market for a decent gaming headset then you should definitely take a look, and listen to the HyperX Cloud MIX Gaming Headset.  The only thing that might hold you back is the price, so keep an eye out for a good deal if you like how these sound.

The HyperX Cloud MIX Gaming Headset is available now priced around £179.99.
