HyperX Cloud Flight S gaming headset in test: convincing wearing comfort meets weak audio performance

You’re a gamer through and through, but cables annoy you? Then the HyperX Cloud Flight S might be just the right gaming headset for you. Not only does it connect wirelessly to your PC or Playstation 4, it can also be charged wirelessly. For this purpose, the headset uses the widespread Qi technology, which is also used in many modern smartphones.

The features of the headset sound exciting at times, but what about the rest? Are sound, recording quality and comfort convincing? Is the battery enough for long weekend days? Our HyperX Cloud Flight S test has the answers.

Isn’t there something missing?

After unpacking the white-red packaging, you have the headset, a USB receiver, a detachable microphone and a MicroUSB charging cable in front of you and ask yourself: isn’t there something missing?

No, nothing is missing. Although the HyperX Cloud Flight S supports wireless charging via Qi, no charging station is included. This must be purchased separately. Any standard Qi charging station works, which can be purchased at Amazon for about 10 Euro. Or you can use the HyperX ChargePlay Base, which costs 65 Euro. Even though two devices can be charged here, I would probably choose a cheaper alternative, because even Dual-Qi-charging stations are available from 25 Euro. HyperX has thus priced the accessories clearly too high. Let’s rather concentrate on the headset.
