The HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset was released at the end of September, but before it was, I got a hands-on—or rather, head-on—preview of it. I can tell ...[Read More]
Hyper X/Kingston has been working on a lot of hardware, which ranges from ram, mice, keyboards and even headsets. At PAX East 2017 I had the chance to check out quite a few products in person, but one headset I got the chance to review was the Cloud Stinger. What is this headset? The HyperX Cloud Stinger is a Lower-end Gaming Headset that retails for $49.99. The real question though is, how good c...[Read More]
With PAX South being in full swing at the time, one of my many appointments was with the Lucid Sound team. Some of you reading may know that in the past we have done a review of the Lucid Sound LS30 Wireless Headset.

I am the kind of person who appreciates a good headset, especially during the peak of my work year. During the busiest time of the year for my job, I generally have to be out of bed by 5:30 in the morning so that I can get to work by 6:30.
