M ost peripheral makers have a very nasty habit. They have a tendency to slap the word ‘gaming’ on everything, multiply the price by two and then sell it at a premium. Often, this premium has little or no tangible value to the product. So when, Hyper X, a subsidiary of Kingston sent their Cloud Earbuds over for testing, we were a little sceptical over the whole, ‘meant for gaming, therefore, is a good product’ idea.
The Cloud Earbuds on the surface look like an ordinary in-ear earphone. However, they are unlike any other earphone you will ever come across. There is no other way of putting this - they sound phenomenal. For someone who is used to over-the-ear headphones, I could not point out any major difference in the quality of the sound.
