We've tested 5 HyperX headphones. They make mid-to high-range gaming headsets, with great microphones and decent audio reproduction but they somewhat lack active features.
Overall, HyperX makes durable and sturdy gaming headsets at an affordable price with excellent noise filtering microphones. This makes them a suitable option for gaming but their lack of features compared to other popular headsets like the Astro A50 or the Logitech G533 makes them less customizable. They also do not have the convenience of wireless designs but since they're mostly wired, they have practically no latency.
The HyperX brand does not have a big lineup of headphones since they only make gaming headsets. The 5 headphones available on their website are:
The best HyperX headset that we've reviewed so far are the Could Revolver. They have a retro design with a self-adjusting headband strap and soft pads that provide a good comfort level for most listeners. They have a detachable mic and a closed design that make them practical enough to use outdoors. They're also the best sounding of the HyperX lineup we've tested, making them a decent option for more critical listeners. Unfortunately, their wired design is not as convenient as some of the other wireless gaming headsets at the same price, but on the upside, they have no latency and you can easily use them with your mobile devices thanks to the regular 1/8' TRRS audio jack.
HyperX makes mostly wired gaming headset with excellent microphones and a sturdy build quality. They're decently affordable, they sound moderately well-balanced and their wired designs have practically no latency which is good for gaming. Unfortunately, they won't be as convenient as some of the other wireless headsets offered by other brands like Logitech or SteelSeries. They also lack in customization options, with no dedicated software, or enhanced active features, which is common for gaming headphones.
