The HyperX Cloud Stinger gives you solid audio performance at an affordable price point. If you’re willing to pay a little more, you can now get it in pink.
We often complain here at Tom’s Hardware about the lack of color selection in today’s tech. Well, HyperX just threw us a bone. The company originally released its Cloud Stinger in 2016, draped in black. Nearly five years later, HyperX has upped the ante, making the Cloud Stinger, one of the PC-focused headsets in the brand’s extensive Stinger lineup, also available in pink. It comes with what you might call a pink tax though: The pink version currently has a $50 MSRP, while the black version is $35 as of writing.
Beyond that, you get all the features you could expect from a gaming headset and even quality, noise-canceling microphone, and virtual 7.1 surround sound. But despite its lightweight, this is a bulky set of cans. The Cloud Stinger can’t quite compete with the best gaming headsets on the market, but what it lacks in flash, it makes up for with affordability. This is a solid entry-level option.
