HyperX Cloud Stinger 2 review: A no-frills headset
It is good to have a home theater system with surround sound around your computer. But not everyone appreciates the sound of explosions after dinner, a firefight in the afternoon or a weekend visit from an aircraft carrier in the morning. If you want to have at least somewhat correct relations with your neighbors or family and not deny yourself the appropriate acoustic absorption, you cannot do without headphones. But should it be the HyperX Cloud Stinger 2?
Buying headphones is always a compromise. They may sound great, but then it’s hard to take them out. They can be very comfortable, light, but then they are never completely cheap.
HyperX Cloud Stinger 2 they have a well-known name, but the price is among the cheapest models on the market – you can buy them for around 1,600 crowns, which is not exactly cheap, but goes a long way for gourmet audio experiences from them. So don’t expect Active Noise Cancellation, installation of software gadgets or wireless connection. Stinger 2 is a simple headset that just plugs into the audio jack and listens or talks. They can be more and more interesting for such home clickers, but we know.
Parameters: just normal
First, let’s deal with the facts so we can debate them in the rest of the review. HyperX Cloud Stinger 2 are closed headphones, so they surround the earlobe from all sides and the earcups rest directly on the head through leather-covered memory foam.
Thanks to the circumaural construction, the transducers work in an ideal shape for the sound quality, they don’t have to be under so much pressure for a compact size. They have a diameter of 50 mm and use neodymium magnets. The resulting frequency range extends from 10 Hz to 28 kHz, the total harmonic distortion should not reach 2%. The characteristics of the condenser microphone are then described with two-way sensing, noise cancellation and a sensitivity of -40.5 dBV at 1V/Pa.
The headphones support DTS Headphone:X surround sound, however, they are connected via a 3.5mm audio jack and do not support any audio “post-production” itself.
Package contents: in addition, there is only a power strip
I don’t know exactly when black and red became the color combination of games, but HyperX sticks with this choice. Still, you’ll find relatively little black and a surprising amount of white on the box. Prim plays red, at the same time the finishing of the packaging does not evoke gaming experiences in any way, and if you changed the logo on the same box, JBL, Genius and Lamax or Niceboy can use it just as well.
On the other hand, the headphones are not a collector’s item, so after unpacking the Stingers from the plastic mold, there is no reason to store the box anymore. Unless you want to put a foam cap on the microphone (recommended if you snort 🙂 or you wanted to split the combined jack at the end of the cable into a headphone-only and microphone-only line. It’s also in the simplest form .can be – without buttons or other control elements.
There are still some papers with instructions and specifications on the bottom of the package, but even these do not need to be taken out of the box on the way to the blue container.
