Hello! Thanks for reading and for the question!

I like it a little more than the Cloud Stinger. The HS50 is better built, and has a removable microphone. It’s a touch more clampy and a touch less comfy than the Stinger, but better in all the other ways that count.

However, for me, the A10 is a better overall headset. It has a nicer mic. It has a sound that’s more fun. It has a better, more plush fit. It has a removable cable (and in fact is one of the only lower-cost headsets to have that feature). And it has a similar robust build quality.

The only areas where the A10 looses out to the HS50 are purely aesthetic. The A10 looks a lot more like a “gaming” product, and the mic doesn’t detach. If you can live with those two things, I think it’s a better deal overall.

But honestly you can’t go wrong with any of these in the $50 range. So I’d pick the one that appeals to you personally the most!

Thanks again for stopping by!
