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.
The entire body of the cloud stinger is made of plastic but still have a very solid and premium feel to them, the plastic doesn’t creek when they flex like other headsets can. Most of the finish is a matte plastic with a few accents in gloss. There is leatherette padding inside of the headband which has a good amount of cushion. The headband has a nice and firm adjustable steel slider that clicks at each notch. Each earcup can rotate and pivot. The swivel has a very good feel to it and allows them to fit perfectly over my ear. The earcups have a memory foam cushions which are very soft and provide enough padding to keep my ear from touching the driver. My ears usually touch the driver on a lot of other gaming headsets, but I was very happy with how comfortably these fit over my ears. The headset does feel big and bulky, and the cushions can get warm. They don’t breath as much as I’d like, the earcups clamp down slightly but are very comfortable to wear for hours. They make a very snug fit over your ears. They didn’t cause my ears to sweat, but I can see that happening if you're a heavy sweater.
On the bottom of the right earcup there is a volume control, this won’t control the volume of your device, only the volume of the headset, so I would turn the volume up to about 90 percent and then control the volume on the headset. The slider feels good overall but it doesn't slide smoothly the entire way, it gets a little bit harder to slide when you turn the volume down all the way. But it's a nice feature and allows you to quickly turn the volume down if you needed to.
The mic is not removable like it is on the more expensive cloud headsets but you can turn the microphone up to mute when you are not using it. There is actually a switch in the mic that turns on and off when you swivel it. It's also flexible, so you can bend the mic to find just the right position.
The Cloud stinger features 50 mm drivers which do an amazing job. I was really surprised how great these sounded, especially for a 50 dollar headset, but they sound as good as headphones twice the price. This headset is tuned for action, they aren’t as flat as a good pair of headphones but they do an amazing job of really emphasizing action. The bass hits hard and there is more weight to explosions. When using these to watch a movie, I felt that they were a bit boomy in the lower mid range, especially when there were scenes with deep bass and dialog. But these sounded great for music, the bass was deep, the vocals were clear, and there was a lot of detail in the highs. These have a nice wide soundstage as well. They feel open and I felt I had a better sense of my surroundings in first person shooters. This headset performs great at loud levels as well, and don’t distort.
Overall, I’m very satisfied with this headset, although the went with an all plastic design to cut costs, they didn’t skimp when it comes to sound. They are very comfortable to use for long gaming sessions and they have a very durable and well made feel to them.
At $50, you can't do much better than this in terms of quality gaming headsets. Is it the best? No - and if you want to spend big bucks to get a top-of-the-line headset, then you do you! But if you're a gamer on a budget or would rather spend your money on other things (like upgrading your video card), the HyperX Cloud Stinger is a great pick!
Easy to break audio jack (not inline so no swapping the jack out for a new one)
A small bit bulky and has a weird design
Great audio quality
The headset is made out of plastic but is very durable
If you are saving up for a headset and can manage waiting for another 20 bucks I would recommend getting higher quality HyperX headsets as they almost match an Astro (keep in mind the astro does not have a mix amp on use in this example....)
