It features 50mm directional drivers that pump out loud, clear sound and lots of bass; combined with virtual 7.1 surround sound you're going to hear everything exactly where it's meant to be. Thick memory foam lines the cans for extra over-ear comfort, making it easy to enjoy lengthy gaming sessions without any ear discomfort.
The braided cable has a redesigned inline control box that takes things to the next level. You can quickly toggle surround sound on and off, you can adjust headphone and mic input and output levels, and it even helps with microphone noise cancelling thanks to a built-in sound card. This is all built on a quality steel frame with the durability we expect from high-end HyperX products.
The HyperX Cloud Revolver + 7.1 is expected to retail for about $150, though it's currently hard to find at sellers. For now, check out the product page at the official HyperX website.
