HyperX Cloud MIX Headset Review
     Tue, Dec 04 2018 | 1:20P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We’ve been fans of HyperX’s Cloud gaming headsets since they were first released a few years back. Since the first headset HyperX has just got it right in terms of sound quality, comfort, and style. HyperX’s latest release, the Cloud MIX, attempts to go into a realm HyperX has not been before, wireless. The Cloud MIX as the name suggests is not just for PC use though, it is designed as a gaming headset that you can use on your PC, console, mobile device, etc. It features not only Bluetooth wireless connectivity, but a wired connection too, so HyperX is hoping this is the all-around headset for anyone. Will this headset replace the Cloud Alpha, which I use daily? Or my wireless travel headphones, the BOHM B66’s? Read on as we find out!"
