Being a hybrid headset you might assume 'jack of all trades, master of none'. You would be very mistaken to assume that, the audio performance in particular is stellar, and perfectly suited for gaming, movies and music. There is no obvious weakness.
I just need to gush about the Hyper X Cloud Mix because it feels like a long time coming: why didn't I try Hyper X sooner? Onto the specifics, comfort and build is excellent across the board. Extremely lightweight (265g with mic attached) and I can't say I agree with the criticisms over clamping force being excessive. With plush ear cushions, I can't see how even larger heads would have any issues.
Now onto the audio, which is where this headset truly shines. Whether via Bluetooth - which is almost indistinguishable from being hard wired - or connected to your controller the audio is outstanding. The bass performance just puts a smile on your face, it's a really fun sound, with no distortion or background hiss (take note Steelseries!). The audio is very robust and rock solid. And man does it get loud, even via Bluetooth, though PS4 is the exception. This is an issue with all headsets on PS4 and remains an annoyance. On Xbox, fill your boots with the highest volumes and added immersion that entails. Hyper X have 'hyped up' (sorry) the dual chamber feature which separates the lows and highs. It's certainly no gimmick, there is notably far more separation than I'm used to, with no muddy sounds caused by conflicting audio.
I use the Bluetooth through my phone and TV - so I can still play video games and watch movies wirelessly. As I said, there is no notable degradation in sound. I use wired when I want to use Dolby Atmos on Xbox, or if I need to chat. But it functions very well as a wireless headset for the most part. I could go on and on about how great this headset is, but I genuinely must get back to using it. If you haven't tried Hyper X before, prepare to be surprised. If you have, chances are you don't need to read this review!
I also own the Sony WH-1000XM3 which also has Hi Res Audio playback and they work in BT mode. I am not suprised the Hyper X does not play Hi Res Audio in BT mode given the price. The Sony is about twice as much.
Due to the fact this headset if not comforatbale for me I will need to return it. Shame
The only real contention is around music listening with the punch of bass, but gaming on it thus far has been flawless in my honest opinion. If you are looking for a headset at a fantastic price which you can also use to make calls just by plugging it into your phone, or likewise using it with a PC and or gaming console, then this should be the headset for you!
I was initially researching for weeks the best headsets on the market and the brand, 'Astro' kept appearing, but lots of reviewers were claiming that they were plagued with issues, especially the A50s, and that the A40s minimum needed a DAC to make it worthwhile. So in the end, I vouched for these and I have not regretted it since. I would highly recommend!
sound quality is not great at all.. these have been returned today. absolute rip off.
I'm not condoning it but it can be improved by using 3rd party software but with the price tag you would have thought this would already be addressed.
Sound quality is fine, if a little heavy on the bass. And they're comfortable for 5+ hours that I typically have them on. If not for the two fairly large issues mentioned at the start, they'd be a great purchase.
