   Since we couldn't attend this year's Computex (check our news section for coverage - many interesting products have been unveiled so far) we focused our efforts in testing as many things as we possibly can and it's no surprise really that many of those are gaming peripherals. We're quite lucky actually since in May we received quite a few PC game titles with which to test those gaming peripherals including the new Prey (which is nothing like the 2006 one unfortunately), Endless Space 2 (mods may actually make it one of the best 4X space strategy games to date - custom spaceship frame design is our wish along with some performance optimizations), Vanquish (offers many hours of straight up fun) and Everspace (not a bad space sim but not exactly what we had hoped it would be). One of those gaming peripherals is the newly released CLOUD Revolver S Pro Gaming Headset by our good friends over at HyperX.

   The CLOUD Revolver S is not only the latest addition in the CLOUD family of gaming headsets by HyperX right after the highly acclaimed Revolver gaming headset (due to a server database error that review was never published so do expect it soon) but it's also the very first to feature 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound. Just like the majority of surround headsets in the market today however the CLOUD Revolver S doesn't offer "real" 7.1 surround sound via several small drivers placed inside each earcup but virtual (simulated) thanks to its two 50mm dynamic neodymium drivers (These drivers feature a frequency response of 12Hz-28KHz with 30Ohm impedance and 104dB of sound pressure) and an external USB sound card which can connect to it via a 3.5mm plug. A uni-directional noise-cancelling detachable microphone with a frequency response of 50Hz-18KHz and -40dB sensitivity completes the features of the CLOUD Revolver S by HyperX.
