Here’s the review of the HyperX Cloud Flight S Headset.
The HyperX Cloud Flight S gives you an impressive 30 hours of long-lasting wireless gaming freedom. It’s the first free-standing Qi-charging wireless gaming headset, giving you the convenience of both wireless charging and 2.4GHz wireless audio connectivity. Activate HyperX custom-tuned virtual 7.1 surround sound and unlock an extra level of immersion from your audio entertainment with a touch of your earcup. Adjust the balance of game and chat volume easily by pressing the onboard controls, bypassing all those system menus. If you want to further tune things to your wishes, you can customize the intuitive earcup controls with easy-to-use HyperX NGENUITY software.
Cloud Flight S features HyperX’s signature comfort thanks to extra plush memory foam and breathable leatherette. It’s built with durable steel sliders to help absorb some of the wear and tear of daily use. The flexible, detachable microphone is Discord and TeamSpeak certified and features an LED mic mute indicator and mic monitoring functionality. It also has 90° rotating earcups, so you can rest the headset comfortably around your neck, and their innovative locking design keeps the headset stable as it charges.

A Closer Look
The HyperX Cloud Flight S Headset is all black and looks very professional.
Wearing the headset for extended periods of time is very comfortable, the ear cushions are memory foam which adds to the comfort along with the breathable material they are made out of. The ear cups can actually be rotated so that you can have the headset around your neck if you want.
The headset provides around 30 hours of use out of a full charge, although it’s worth charging up between sessions (or at least every now and again) to ensure it doesn’t run out (although given the 30 hours of usage you are likely to be ok).
Talking of charging, the headset can be charged using a Qi-charging mat and can even be charged free-standing!
The sound quality is very good, and there is a custom-tuned 7.1 surround sound option too. You can even use the HyperX NGENUITY software for additional customisation.
All the controls are on the headset itself, including volume controls and the ability to easily balance both the chat and game volumes at the touch of a button. The controls are also fully customisable so you can set them up however you want and whatever works best for you.
The microphone is detachable so you can remove it completely if you want to play without chat and it won’t get in your way and it is easily moved position wise to whatever position best suits you. There is a mute indicator near the tip of the microphone that shows the status of the mic so you don’t say something when you think you are muted.
Overall this is a very high quality comfortable headset that has the unique ability to be charged via a QI-charging mat and provides excellent audio quality – well worth a listen if you get a chance.
The HyperX Cloud Flight S Headset is available now priced around £149.99.
