Kingston the maker of the X Cloud Revolver S headsets released the Revolver S back last year in March 2017, the Revolver S is very similar to the original Hyper X Cloud Revolver headset, with just a few upgrades added to the headset. The Revolver S is known for being one of the top in its league, offering great design with Dolby 7.1-channel surround sound, and other amenities that are about to be discussed further.
The company’s basic design principle is all about aiming for comfort and sound, the steel frame is said to be durable for long lasting and stability and the Revolver S is design with a slightly wider but yet thin steel headband that is not adjustable, this design is set to bend to conform to the size of the user’s head. The metal frame is wrapped in soft padding surrounded by premium leather with just the right amount of support which allows for the padding to “rest” on the ears and not feel clamped on the ears, and the high-quality memory foam is red, this is to help differentiate from the competitors headset. Some headsets are known for building up “sweat ears,” around the ear padding, the Revolver S design helps keep the sweat issue to a minimum.
The 50mm drivers are standard, with plug-and-play Dolby 7.1-channel surround sound. The Revolver S runs on a single USB port, which eliminates having to use some sort of audio box, with this across the platform capability is what makes it stand out from the rest, the plug-and-play is not only portable but the Dolby Surround dongle makes it even better for mobility reason. The compact size dongle has two buttons, one for the Dolby Surround and one to mute the detachable microphone. To operate the dongle is quite easy, one side controls the Equalizer mic mute button, and the mic plug-in-play, the other side controls the volume and the the mic volume, and the top controls the Dolby Audio 7.1 surround sound, and it has 3.5mm jack. The Hyper X Cloud Revolver S headset retails for $149.99 and can be purchased at Amazon and most major retail stores.
