Headphone Showdown: HyperX Cloud Stinger VS Hyper X Cloud II/X/Core/Etc.

The Contenders

HyperX Cloud Stinger ($49)

HyperX Cloud X/II/Core ($69-$99, depending on the model)

I have a stupid number of pictures of myself wearing these headphones. I don’t even own this pair anymore, but I’m wearing a newer one on my head right now. Because I’m nuts.

Sound Quality

The aluminum forks on the Hyper X CloudX have a Beyerdynamic vibe to them, and feel quite sturdy.

Build/Design

Comfort

Gaming Stuff (Mic etc.)

This hard case is included for free with the HyperX CloudX. It’s stupidly good. It’s also available separately for 15 bucks from HyperX. I think they’re the only company including a decent hard case in the $99 price range?

Features/Extras
