Processing and comfort

The workmanship shines with high-quality materials, and overall the gaming headset feels very valuable. It's soundproof, and the edging is leather-like, probably faux leather. Overall it's very soft and doesn't pinch your ears.

sound quality

During our pre-test in Fortnite, the audio was very clear and rich. The footsteps of the opponents in Fortnite were clearly audible, which of course characterizes this headset. Thanks to the shielding, you can fully concentrate on the game noise. The headset also features DTS Headphone:X technology.

First conclusion

Our first conclusion is quite positive, especially for someone with a standing desk. The wireless functionality is a blessing as you can quickly run somewhere without having to take off the headset. In our test, we were able to cover a range of 10 meters with several walls. The headset also offers the great sound of the HyperX Cloud III at a good price-performance ratio.
