5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good Budget Headphones
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 June 2020
Update 2:
For listening to music, they are okay not bad as I thought. Mids are okay, treble is okay bass is good. If you are using Linux, try Pulse Effects (It really makes the sound quality 1000 times better).

Original:
Amazing headphone for casual gamers like me. I tested on a PS4 and PC. Everything works out of the box on both the platforms.

Audio is great overall (9/10)
Great for Single player games, due to the fact this gives more bass and make you feel more immersed into the game. Okay for online FPS games, don't get me wrong treble is okay (not bad), you can hear directional footsteps (tested on Overwatch and Battlefield), but they are not loud as I expected it to be.

Mic is really outstanding at this price (10/10), no complaints (Tested on PS Party and Discord).

Ear cushions are okay, not the best (not leather, see my pic), but they are comfy.
It doesn't look cheap as it has matt plastic finish rather than glossy. It is light too, can wear for prolonged game sessions.
The ear cups aren't rotatable as HyperX Cloud Stinger. From the spec look this seems to the latest version of their "HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Console Gaming Headset".

It doesn't say anywhere, but this headset has Impedance of 16 Ω (lower impedance is good for consoles). My Box had a headset with the 3.5mm cable and PC extension cable. Well packed. This is definitely good for gaming (wouldn't recommend for music listening as this is bass heavy). I bought at full price and would recommend for anyone looking for a budget headphone for PC or PS4.

4.0 out of 5 stars around good headphone for warzone
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 May 2021
I bought this headphone because my friend recommended me it. I have been using it now for the past couple of days since i bought it. I could honestly say it's decent for it price. The mic is flexible so you can put it next to your mouth for those who likes to annoy their friends with their smelly breath right next to there mic, this is for you. The audio quality is very good and sometimes soo loud i had to lower the volume down which is good to have. Now the bad thing about having this headphones is when i put it over my ear, after you play for hours, it starts too feel a bit itchy especially when you start sweating. The material of ear pad is one bad side about this headphone but overall worth buying for a good quality headphone if you wanna hear footsteps on warzone.
