March 22 2016: A brand better known for storage and memory solutions, Kingston has forayed into audio with the HyperX range of headsets. The latest to reach India is the HyperX Cloud Drone which is a mite cheaper than earlier models in the series, sacrificing somewhat on the driver but offering the same combo of comfort and good audio range. It works with games platforms like XBox One, PS4, WiiU as well as PC and Mac.
The volume control is conveniently placed on the ear cup and you don't have to search for it on the cable. The mike has a useful feature, if you swivel it away from your face, it mutes.
Hard core gamers don't like to risk even momentary signal drops that happen with wireless Bluetooth devices, which is why they prefer the wired headphone option, even at the loss of some mobility.
The Cloud Drone has an MRP of Rs 3999. But search well on the Web and you could knock off at least a thousand rupees.
