HyperX Cloud Stereo Gaming Headset for PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: No audiophile but I think they sound good. Analog connectors so I can use it with my resident discreet sound card. Aluminum in the headband, not plastic. Not bad for the price.

Cons: DO NOT USE THE INLINE CONTROL BOX!!! It is faulty or something. It makes the phones very quiet. I spent a few hours troubleshooting thinking my soundcard was busted (even edited my ALSA config files). I switched to the plain extension and they are more than loud enough now.

Other Thoughts: The inline control box might work better if you add a headphone amp. Using these for CS:GO.

Astro Gaming A30 Circumaural Wired Headset + MixAmp Pro - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Works with Ubuntu 12.10 02/19/2013

This review is from: Astro Gaming A30 Circumaural Wired Headset + MixAmp Pro - Black

Pros: Good sounding, I guess. I got these to work on Ubuntu 12.10.

Cons: A little pricey. The manual doesn't say anything about PC setup, it only mentions xbox and playstation.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have all the necessary Pulseaudio addons installed. I had to install some to find the config and set up the mic. I almost RMA'ed these because I thought I wouldn't be able get these to function fully.

I use these to game on Linux( Steam Linux beta).

Astro Gaming A30 Circumaural Wired Headset + MixAmp Pro - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Sound good, I'm no audiophile though. Can get pretty loud. The amp looks cool on my desk, people keep asking what it is.

Cons: I can't seem to get the microphone to work. The set uses a duplex cable with a splitter for the signal and mic. The mic loops back into the phones and I can hear myself but my computer is not getting any mic signal or the mic is just really quiet.

Oh and these are NOT circumaural, unless you have the ears of an infant, these are supra. See other thoughts on this.

Other Thoughts: The manufacturer website/manual claims these will work with linux. It is recognized on usb for output only. No mic.

They fit comfortably over my glasses. Better than other circumaural sets I've owned.
