What is the best hyperx headset?, I'm thinking about buying the HyperX Revoler S, anyone have it? I want to spend 120$ and below.

If your motherboard has the latest Realtek ALC1220 audio codec(mostly used on high-end "gaming" motherboards) or you have a high-end audio card(either in-built or external one like ASUS Xonar U7), then there is no reason in buying revolver s. IMO, Cloud Alpha is the best choice in terms of the best gaming experience & price. You can buy one for less than $90 on amazon.

I have a Q87M-E motherboard, I believe it's outdated so.

Then HyperX Cloud II is what you're looking for. It's cheaper than Revolver S and in-built audio card will do just fine for gaming(also quite reliable model) You can also buy a cheap USB sound card with noise cancellation(that ensures surround sound and delivers crystal-clear communication), and combine it with any $50 headset that seems to be reliable. For example HyperX Cloud Core + HyperX Amp USB Sound Card, it'll be cheaper than Cloud II, but bring the same performance. However I'd still recommend Cloud II in your situation as it perfectly fits your budget and demands.

As for alternatives, there are some headsets comparable to Cloud 2 and it's hard to say which one is better. To name a few: - Logitech G433 Wired - Corsair Void Pro RGB USB / VOID PRO Wired (I believe they are the same, except RGB feature) - SteelSeries Arctis 5 (not 2019 edition, as it costs much more) From what I've heard Logitech and SteelSeries have a better mic(I am not sure if it's related to a better in-built sound card or overall build quality, Logitech has always had awesome mic quality even on budget models), but again Cloud 2's been tested by thousands of users and it's been great for years. I'd not bother much, just go with Cloud II.

the only point where you can say that cloud 2>revolver is that cloud tightens the ears way more so they're isolating more outside sound but other than that none really

2019-02-22 22:35

That's not a problem of the mic, it's your audio card being dogshit.
2019-02-22 22:43
No bro, it's the mic.

What motherboard do you have?
2019-02-22 23:17
Asus Z170 Pro Gaming but bro you need to accept the fact that the microphone is BAD, y es it's good enough for playing CSGO and giving callouts but that's about it. Just buy a dedicated mic like Fifine K669 for 20€ and be done with it.

in #26 I've admitted it being bad, but "tbf most gaming headset mics are" part is not true.

how the fuck is everyone having problems with mics while I had no problems at all?
2019-02-22 22:58
I mean I don't know your standards on audio quality but objectively the mic is terrible just like 90% of gaming headsets. youtu.be/ZS6ggBX4dEs?t=3s youtu.be/MGxRmTBYK98?t=7m6s youtu.be/M1hMytfEAyU?t=2m47s youtu.be/M1hMytfEAyU?t=3m36s

1) You can't expect studio grade quality on a mic like that 2) I'm not going to comment second link but others seem to be somewhat fine 3) Trust me, I have seen some next level terrible mics but those are fine

You've listed videos without any info of what audio card and/or software presets they use(at least it's not listed in the description and I'm not willing to watch it all) Actually the 3rd video shows that Revolver indeed sucks, however Cloud 2 on the 2nd video clearly wins and delivers crystal-clear sound(it's unclear if Cloud 2 is recorded while using in-built USB card or own). Generally speaking, Realtek ALC1220 is able to deliver crystal-clear sound and awesome noise cancellation(if software is configured correctly) on almost any $100-150 headset, not to speak of high-end audio cards(which make no difference in terms of mic quality for $100 headset, but can make a difference within $300+ price range). As for Revolver, it's indeed a bad model, For example, Sennheiser GSP 300 delivers crystal-clear mic sound paired with ALC1220.

c2 or alpha the best models yet

Cloud I > Cloud II Cloud I - basically it is the Takstar PRO80 with added microphone Cloud II - same like Cloud I but they have worse transducers
