Gears of War 4 officially releases tomorrow, but Ultimate Edition owners have already been blasting away at DeeBees and Swarm with a wide range of entertaining firepower. There’s a lot of audio to pay attention to in Gears of War 4, whether it’s listening for an approaching enemy or enjoying the sound of the lancer chainsaw or explosions from the dropshot gun. It’s important to hear these sounds with quality headphones, and it’s even better when the quality is combined with style.
Kingston recently released a special edition Gears of War themed HyperX CloudX Revolver. I was already a big fan of the headset prior to getting my hands on the new version as I called it a brilliant combination of great audio and comfort in my review. I even said the HyperX Cloud Revolver had a stylish look, and my goodness does a Gears of War theme look great on it.
Kingston worked with Microsoft on the creation of this headset to ensure it captured the Gears of War style while designing it to complement the look of the Gears of War edition Xbox One S and controller. It also comes with a Gear Pack for downloading in-game cards for online customization.
I really love the design of the HyperX CloudX Revolver Gears of War Edition, especially with the brown leather headband that looks fantastic with the Gears of War text on it. The headset also features the Gears color red that covers the outer portions of it; mostly on the ears and a small section on the headband. Some of the red color is intentionally marked up with black splashes of paint to completely fit the Gears theme. Additionally, the black Gears logo is found on the outside of both ears. It really does look great!
The HyperX CloudX Revolver Gears of War Edition is a perfect fit for any Gears of War fan. They are incredibly stylish and put out a wonderful sound that’s awesome to hear while fighting against wave after wave of enemies. It has a detachable mic that can be used to speak with teammates in co-op or multiplayer, or to be taken off while enjoying the single player action. And it works great for both Xbox One and PC gamers.
Since the HyperX CloudX Revolver Gears of War Edition is made specifically for Xbox One gamers first, it features an audio control and mute option on the audio cord unlike the PC version that uses a secondary cord to control those options. That’s the only thing different between the two.
Make sure to check out our full review of the HyperX Cloud Revolver. A Gears of War theme couldn’t have been placed on a better headset than the HyperX Cloud Revolver as it features great comfort thanks to its memory foam ear pads and lightweight feeling, and awesome sound that rivals all the best gaming headsets. And now it looks cool too!
