  1. I’m going to have to look into this. HyperX makes some darn good stuff. I have a HyperX Cloud Core that I use with my main PC these days and it’s a very good headset, but I think this one may be pretty good too! I’d be curious about how loud the mic and headset needs to be – with the Cloud Core and most of the others I’ve owned, I can keep the system volume at around 33% and it’s plenty loud, but mic volumes always vary. Sometimes I need to put them near 100% or other times 50% is super loud, LOL.
