CES 2017 Cloud Revolver Cloud Revolver S Dolby gaming headset HyperX

It looks as if HyperX is planning to start 2017 with a loud bang. The brand just announced its newest and most advanced gaming headset to date: the Cloud Revolver S.

It has everything that a standard HyperX headset has: that super soft and comfy memory foam, those 50mm drivers, and of course, a noise-cancelling microphone.

The newest feature that this headset boasts is that it has Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound packed in a USB dongle, meaning that you can just simply plug and play for a cinema-quality sound experience.

You can also customize the sound with three pre-set equalizer settings that separate boost, flat and vocals. If you play FPS games like Battlefied 1, this gives you an unique advantage since you can pinpoint opponents' locations from a distance.

HyperX will debut the Cloud Revolver S at the 2017 International CES, which will take place in Las Vegas from Jan. 5 - 8. The headset will then be available in mid-March.
