Now a few drawbacks I see about the headset from my perspective. The mic stays attached the entire time, so that may be a negative to some. Also no built in mic monitoring that I can tell in my mic testing I have done so far. On XB1 you can setup mic monitoring within the accesories app with a newer controller model with a 3.5 mm jack and place it to an acceptable range. On PS4 testing it is pretty much no mic monitoring, but for 50 bucks I will say that everything all works with no glaring issues and again it is mixamp friendly which is super attractive. I would definitely take these over my A40 TR's just on the fact of comfort alone, not to mention the price. I hope that Kingston ultimately takes this exact Stinger build and makes it into a Stinger II with some higher level build quality and even wireless, that would be the best gaming headset around.
TLDR; The Stinger is a super comfy, mixamp friendly headset that sounds really close to its big brother the Cloud I and II's. Your going to be hard pressed to spend 50 bucks and find a better headset. I have compared many more expensive headsets to these and sound and comfort wise, these are right there with those headsets.
If my review of the Kingston HyperX Cloud Stinger has helped you make a decision about purchasing please give me a postive rating.
SUMMARY: I bought the Hyperx Cloud Stinger and at this time I’m giving 4 stars, however it is most likely a 5 Star Headset I just want some time to make sure. So far I I can honestly say this headset is well worth it just keep in mind I’ve only had it for about a week! It’s very comfortable, has great sound, a great price, seems to be working great with Xbox One, and is made with quality! I don’t think you find a headset in this price range that’s better than this one and many say this headset is better than very expensive ones from what I’ve read. I may wind up getting another Hyperx Cloud headset with a Audio mixer and mute button since I’m not sure I’ll get used to moving the mic up and down to mute it as you have to do with the Stinger (I’m used to a mute button by the controller which makes it fast and simple to mute) and I would like to control volume settings without going into my Xbox audio settings or hopefully Xbox makes a simplier option to this and muting. (You don’t need the adapter with this headset for Xbox one if you have the controller with a 3.5mm jack)
Long Review (Still updating and pending final product rating):
COMFORT: They are very comfortable to me (I am a female and most aren’t comfortable to me and are too big but without this headset adjusted at all it fits pretty comfortably). When it’s adjusted to be larger it fits my boyfriend as well so this is a great headset for either female or male.
I’m not audio/sound wizard or professional but the sound so far is very good. I’ve mainly played Fortnite br and Destiny 2 with this headset. I’m still messing around with different games to see the difference between different noises and using the volume mixer settings on Xbox One to see what sounds best. On Xbox One I’m able to press the home button, go over to System, and then to Audio to control the headset volume, adjust headset chat mixer, or mic montitoring. This headset does have the slider on the right ear so you are able on XB1 to get all your volume levels setup and then just use the volume slider on the headset ear if it’s to loud or quiet. Now that I have messed around with it a bit more I don’t find the need to go back into the audio settings on Xbox to adjust them, I have left them at a certain level that seems to be working great. However, for me I liked having all those volume control settings next to the controller but again maybe I can get used to it. Last thing is I’m messing around with trying Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos for headphones since I read you can use these features with headphones that don’t have surround sound or do have it and as some say it makes a world of a difference... I’m still testing this out on Xbox One to see if they do make a difference with sound.
MIC/PARTY CHAT: Using Xbox party chat is huge and a must for me. I use it to talk to my boyfriend who I play games with from different rooms as well as friends. The first day I got these, I connected to a party chat and instantly he stated it was making a humming or some sort of low pitched noise. He isn’t into tech issues or troubleshooting so this was very hard for me to fix or understand since only he heard this noise. The next day he said he doesn’t hear it at all but I’m still a bit concerned so I’ll be trying to join other people in a party to see if they hear anything not right. Update: it looks like this issue may have went away and was either related to being new, my boyfriends headset, and/or me being in the Xbox insider alpha program.
MUTE FEATURE: The other thing that may just be something I have to get used to is the mic mute method on this headset, having to pull the mic up or down is something I feel takes more time than just pressing a mute button like I’m used to but like I said maybe I’ll get used to it. My boyfriend likes the mute method that the Stinger has more than me since he has a habit of putting up his mic even with his mic not having this feature. I think this is just a preference and dependent on if you can get used to it.
OVERALL RATING: 9/10 I would recommend this headset to someone. For the price and the quality you get I don’t feel there’s a better headset you’ll find!! I hope my review helps you and if you have any questions leave a comment to this review and I’ll reply ASAP.

10/10 Ultra recomendados.
UPDATE: Han pasado 7 meses desde que compré el producto, lo uso diariamente con mi PS4 y no me lastiman por lo ergonómicos que son, duermo con ellos puestos y me sorprende que el cable jamás se haya dañado (algo que comúnmente pasa cuando haces esto) en fin, Super recomendados, sólo tomen en cuenta que no son Deep Bass pero la música y el sonido del juego se escuchan geniales.
Pasé días buscando reviews sobre headsets de calidad media, hasta que al fin me decidí por estos. Ésta opinión es de alguien que no conoce casi nada sobre este tipo de gadgets y es la primer compra que realizo en Amazon.
Los elegí por el precio (los encontré en $910 mxn) pero con la desventaja de que los mandarías hasta el 7 de Junio ¡no podía esperar! ¡no quería esperar tanto! luego de "dialogar" con IT4, decidieron mandarme el producto antes, tardó 15 días en llegar por DHL, envío gratis, entrega sencilla "usted es x persona" - "sí, yo soy ese" - "tenga, nos vemos" ¡Y ya!
Estos headset usan una clavija de 3.5 mm en la cual va combinado con el micrófono o sea que puedes usar el micro y el headset a la vez con tu PS4, además de que trae un cable extra donde separa ambas funciones para usarse con la PC, cada una con su respectiva función. Los audífonos no los siento tan potentes y profundos en cuanto a Bass en PS4 ni en PC, mejoran un poco usando un Ipod clásico de 8gb usando los EQ del mismo, (también en un New 3DS) podría decir lo mismo para PC usando un EQ, pero no es lo mismo que unos especialmente hechos para un Deep Bass; así que, si buscaban eso, mejor sigan buscando.
Trae control de volumen detrás de un auricular. El sonido está bien, y nada más. De hecho siento que mete algo de "ruido" al subir mucho el volumen y me preocupa tronar las bocinas con volúmenes moderados (y no hablo de subir todo el volumen) aparte, hay algunos sonidos agudos que le meten ruido a las bocinas, no los recomiendo para personas exigentes o de buen oído.
¡No son para uso en exteriores! o sea, no vas a andar con estas monstruosidades en la calle, son enormes, muy cómodos ya que las orejeras no lastiman mis orejas después de 2-3 horas seguidas de uso. El cuero de los mismos me hace sudar un poco. Las orejeras pueden girar y adaptarse a la forma de tu cabeza, además de que la diadema, por dentro tiene metal que los mantienen unidos en vez de un plástico que puede romperse fácilmente, además que tiene una esponja en la diadema y es cómoda, no había notado que lo trae.
El micrófono es de buena calidad, puede mejorar sabiendo usar algún programa en PC, además de que me gusta el gimmick de si subes el micrófono se apaga, si lo bajas se prende.
Para finalizar, mi producto llego en perfectas condiciones, debidamente sellado, empacado y enviado, sin golpes ni raspones. Fue tanta la pulcrosidad, que me sentí sucio e indigno xDDD (aun falta la prueba de uso rudo y la dureza del material, ya que a primera vista se ven bastante resistentes)
Fueron $900 mxn por unos buenos audífonos, todo bien a excepción por la falta del Deep Bass.
9/10 IGN Too much water

When the headset did work the sound was very quiet and I often had to turn my computer volume up to ridiculous levels just to hear things properly.
The only good thing about this device was that it was comfortable to wear, and the mic was easy to turn on and off. These are of course pointless attributes as the entire thing died in a VERY short amount of time.

The sound quality is on par with the price.
The software features are a bit lacking, with only volume controls and ON//OFF switch for the virtual sound. Could be better if there is a frequency mixer in the app.
