First of all the short information that I wear glasses and therefore can judge the wearing comfort of a headset also in the respect. If you put on the Cloud Mix, you quickly notice a very strong pressure through the earcups. It won’t get bad over time, but if you get disturbed by it you should test this headset first. Wearing glasses doesn’t increase the pressure, though. The foam prevents the headset from pressing on the glasses and against the head.
The headset weighs 275 grams and with its thin padding on the headband is no burden on the head. During longer gaming sessions the pressure doesn’t attract much attention, but you quickly notice that it gets very warm under the artificial leather. The area around the ear starts to sweat easily, which is probably also due to the slightly too strong contact pressure. However, why the contact pressure does not occur as a very strong negative point is the function of the headset. While using the Cloud Mix as a Bluetooth headset, you can do almost anything. The headset hardly wobbles, if at all, providing consistent comfort.
The sound of the headset is really something. Even though, like many gaming headsets, it doesn’t offer surround sound, it convinces all along the line. The HyperX dual-chamber drivers ensure that the treble, midrange and bass frequencies are separated from each other and that you experience a balanced sound ratio. Even at very high volume levels, the sound remains clean without overloading.
If you don’t have the 7.1 surround sound, you can buy the Amp USB sound card from HyperX for 30 Euro. This works via plug-and-play on the PS4 and PS4 Pro as well as on the PC. I’m afraid we couldn’t test them.
