If you're the type of gamer who regularly counts his savings instead of splurging on Steam games, then have I got news for you.

HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology, is now shipping its new "best budget" gaming headset: the HyperX Cloud Stinger. Supposedly designed "to make even the most casual gamer feel like a pro", this $50 headset aims to make quality audio and comfort accessible to a wider range of gamers.

Don't let looks deceive you though; the
Cloud Stinger is actually lightweight - weighing in at only 275 grams. If that isn't enough, it even sports memory foam and 90-degree ear cup features for those long hours of play. The headset's headband also boasts of an adjustable steel slider for durability, meaning that this isn't some flimsy model that breaks after just a few months of use.

The headset's speakers deliver audio precision with 50mm directional drivers that are tilted to position sound directly into the ear, increasing the sound and making the locations of gunshots in your FPS games that much easier to pinpoint. You won't have a problem with chatting either, for the noise-cancelling microphone included with the headset delivers clear, crisp voice quality. For the player's convenience, you can even flip the microphone upwards to mute it.

The HyperX Cloud Stinger is compatible with PC, Xbox One (though it may require a controller adapter), PlayStation 4 and mobile devices.
