HyperX Cloud Stinger 2 Review – Unboxing and Packaging Contents

But what sets the HyperX Cloud Stinger 2 apart is its focus on comfort. The headset cup is padded with memory foam, making it comfortable to wear for extended periods. The top part of the headset is also padded, ensuring that the user can wear it comfortably. When you take the headset off your head, you can rotate the earcups and rest them on your chest. Or when you are not using it anymore, you can lie them flat on the desk.

Weighing at under 300 grams, the headset feels very light and if you always carry a headset inside your backpack, you’ll be pleased at how lightweight this is.

The HyperX Cloud Stinger 2 is equipped with 50mm drivers that deliver a decent sound experience. The bass is not overdone, and the clarity is decently clean. With decent noise isolation, you can enjoy gaming and media consumption in private. The dedicated volume dial on the headset is easy to reach, adding to the convenience of the user.

Another exciting feature of the HyperX Cloud Stinger 2 is the inclusion of DTS X Spatial Audio, which makes story-based games more immersive. The driver software supplied by HyperX Stinger 2 is user-friendly, making it easy for even beginners to customise their audio experience.

The headset is also adjustable to any head size requirement, with a helpful length indicator that allows you to share it with family members who may have different head sizes.

The noise-cancelling mic is perfect for social gaming, providing an enjoyable voice chat experience. The headset is Discord certified, ensuring a hassle-free Discord experience.
