Packaging & First Look

The Revolver S comes in a more stylised packaging with a grungy gamer background. There is a 'console' like band at the top for quick compatibility identification (like how the Xbox One products have a green band, and the PS4 uses a Blue band). There is some information given about its features listed in various languages so people can see instantly what they are getting.

At the back there is a diagram showing off its key features in various languages, along with reassurance as to its compatibility with various popular gaming VOIP services.

Inside, HyperX have included various accessories, including the USB control box which is attached to a 2.2m long braided cable, as well as a 2m PC extension/splitter, and the removable noise reducing microphone.

The control box features a clip at the back for convenience, as has two large buttons for Dolby Surround, and microphone mute. On the sides there are two dials for Master Volume, and microphone volume. Finally there is also a small button seen on the left side which toggles between music/movies/gaming preset EQ, with three LED indicators to distinguish which is in use. The top part of the dongle is where you plug in the 3.5mm 4pole jack.

On initial inspection it is easy to see that the Revolver S, uses a large steel frame and a suspension headband design. The earcups are very large and can swivel. The Revolver S itself features a hard-lined 1m long braided cable with a gold-plated 3.5mm jack, suitable for use with various mobile devices, games consoles and more.
