Amazon is now offering the HyperX Cloud Orbit S Gaming Headset for $199.99 shipped. Typically going for $330, this solid $130 price drop marks a new all-time low price we’ve tracked. HyperX utilizes Audeze planar magnetic 100mm drivers due to the super-fast frequency response times which “minimizes distortion and takes audio immersion and clarity to another level.” There is even onboard audio processing to create immersive 3D audio with additional head tracking to further increase your immersion. Compatible across multiple platforms thanks to its USB and 3.5mm aux connections, you will be able to game anywhere and also talk with teammates thanks to the detachable noise cancellation mic. Be sure to check out our launch coverage to learn more and keep reading below.
You can save some cash by instead going with the Razer Kraken Gaming Headset for $40. Similarly to the HyperX above, this headset is also wired so you can use it across multiple platforms. The microphone here isn’t detachable but it does retract back into the earcup when not in use and while traveling. Audio controls are also in-line with the audio cable for on-the-fly volume adjustment and microphone mute toggling. There is even virtual 7.1 surround sound when used with a Windows PC so you can better hear where enemies are coming from. Made from bauxite aluminum, the Razer Kraken headset is designed to be lightweight and portable for on-the-go use.
