With the Cloud Mix, the manufacturer HyperX has launched a gaming headset on the market that can be connected via Bluetooth as well as via a 3.5 mm jack. The headset should therefore be compatible with all consoles, PCs and smartphones. All necessary cables are included in the scope of delivery. We found out in this test whether the Cloud Mix can also convince through sound and functionality.
Design and Workmanship
The design of the HyperX is not particularly striking. Compared to other gaming headsets, the Cloud Mix is not that clumsy and, despite the ear-cup-enclosing design, very narrow. There is no RGB lighting, only the HyperX logo on both sides. The cable between the auricles and the head cushion, which runs freely for a short time, is also conspicuous. This means that the cable is much less stressed. The headphones themselves have significantly more buttons than other gaming headsets, but they are also necessary for use as a Bluetooth headset.
The left earpiece has an integrated microphone, a detachable microphone port, a 3.5 mm jack for Bluetooth-free use, and a multifunction button for wireless use. On the right side are the Micro-USB connector for charging, the power button, a status LED and a volume rocker for adjusting the volume in wireless operation.
All in all, the headset is also very high-quality from the workmanship. The temples are made of metal and very stable, the upholstery is covered with artificial leather. The microphone is very stable and stays in the position where you align it. The HyperX Cloud Mix also comes with everything you need when it comes to the scope of delivery. In addition to a pocket to store the headset, there is a 3.5 mm jack cable with volume control and microphone mute button. Furthermore there is an adapter of Y-splitter cable for the use at the PC as well as a Micro-USB charging cable included.
