NASA! Are you playing a game? E-sports culture has become common, and demand for gaming accessories is increasing every day. In particular, gaming headset can be used not only for gameplay but also for communication, so I want to choose it. In this article, we will use Hyper’s new gaming headset Hyper Cloud Stinger 2 to verify the feeling of use while considering the situations that can be found in APEX LEGENDS!
Hyper Cloud Stinger 2 is a wired gaming headset, and the terminal has a 3.5 mm microphone and headphones terminals (a pin that can be handled simply by inserting it into a game machine/controller).
There is an extension cord that separates microphone/headphones for PCs, and the suggested retail price is 7,480 yen, which is a very affordable price range. This is a gaming headset of so-called entry class . It’s a product for people who say, I’m not particularly familiar and my budget is not so much, but I want to try gaming products for the time being.
When I took it in my hand, it was a very weight . Actually, it was 284 grams, and it seemed to be about 20 grams lighter than the headset I usually use, but it was easier to handle than to see it in numbers when it was attached.
That doesn’t mean that the hardware is cheap. Although it is not the finest texture, it can be relieved with a solid touch.
Also, compared to the gaming headset I used, I felt that the side pressure when installed was weaker . Even if you play the game while wearing, there is not much obstruction, and the lightness is comfortable to wear. It’s pretty pleased for players with a large head like themselves.
For players who are not, you will be able to challenge long game play with a stress-free feeling. If you concentrate and play for a long time, this weakness of side pressure will surely be a key point.
The headset side has a numerical scale, and you can remember how much tightness is right for you. It is a convenient function for those who have changed settings, such as when they are not used or rented them to someone.
By giving the microphone part on top, it can be made in mute mode. When there is a sudden visit or a parent hula, it is attractive in some environments to be able to mute without switching the screen. In addition, the microphone has a noise-canceling function.
In addition, the headset also has a dial that can adjust the volume at hand. I think there is a Discord user, but if you start the game while talking, the sound of the game will sound with an explosion, and there are few experienced players who have suddenly destroyed their ears. Isn’t it…? For those who have such an experience, I am grateful that the function that can operate the volume quickly in an emergency evacuation.
Of course, this volume dial is a convenient point for normal use. In PCs, there are many cases where the volume adjustment in the multi-display environment or those who are working at home want to adjust the volume immediately. Along with the scale and microphone mute, it is a model that can embody reach itchy places despite the entry model.
In addition, if you use the software called DTS Sound Unbound on your PC, you can use a virtual surround function called DTS HEADPHONE: X. This service is originally charged, but Hyper Cloud Stinger 2 has two years of use coupon.
I used these functions in other headsets, but it would depend on the player’s preference. If you try using it as an entry model, and if you feel that it is not necessary, it is ant to continue using only Hyper Cloud Stinger 2 as it is.
To summarize this far, it is an impression that it is low price but high-performance and good texture . My personal preference was that I was happier if the cable and microphone could be removed, but it would be a satisfying quality considering that it was an entry model. From here, I will actually play the game and check various things.
This time, I will play the PC version Apex Legends. Battles FPS is a game genre that gaming headsets are particularly recommended because they often listen to footsteps and gunshots. I think the target of this product will be a player who says, I’m going to try a shooter game in the future.
When I actually used it, the FPS-like footsteps were quite easy to hear. Regarding virtual surround, it is easier to understand where the sound is ringing, even if it is not enough to realize the significant effect.
The easier it is to hear the sound, the easier it is to identify the position and weapons of the other party. If you can identify them, of course, tactics will remain (if the game is good ). If the sound that sound speaks eloquent information can be done, it will surely be able to control the game (if the game is good ). The photo is a pose of Swirling knowledge because the amount of information of the sound is so amazing.
This time, I tried to verify how to hear gunshots and footsteps using a casual match and a practice area, but contrary to the lightness and comfort of the comfort, it was a very heavy sound. The low range to the midrange was impressive, and I was able to hear beautifully from footsteps to gunshots. As the sense of presence simply increases, the tension may increase accordingly.
When playing an interpersonal game by writing a trial report like this article I will do it until I win , or It was a long time play, There are many things, but… Defeat the living human opponent without difficulty and become a wonderful champion. There is a theory that the score was delicate, so there was a theory that allies carried them, but it may be a headset that attracts luck .
Next is verification of microphone function. I haven’t experienced that for a while, but I will assume that when parents suddenly enter the room and make noise and voices that are likely to be noise. I pretend to be surprised, move my body, sound a desk, hit my hands.
According to the editorial department who connected the call for verification, I will make noise as it is, but it is fine. It doesn’t cut all noise, but if you use a noise cancellation function in a call app such as Discord, it seems to be more powerful.
Also, the quality of the call was sufficient in terms of ease of hearing in conversation. It may be subtle to record and use it for videos, but if you are a microphone installed in the headset, you will not seek more quality.
So, the actual feeling of use was quite good . If you want to play with your friends with Apex Legends and want to buy something from the headphones you usually use to gaming, I think this is a product that will take into account it. There is no doubt if you keep it.
In addition, in the production of this article, Hyper Cloud Stinger 2 was installed for about several hours, including verification, but most stress wearing with lightness of mounting and weak side pressure. I didn’t feel it. The appearance is a calm black tone, so it can withstand long-term operation such as remote work.
Hyper Cloud Stinger 2 has been released on October 3, and the suggested retail price is 7,480 yen (tax included). Specifications that can be used perfectly as first one, and price with a sense of security… I guess it’s a perfect gaming headset for those who want to play shooter games in the future!
