HyperX Cloud Mix Buds review

The HyperX Cloud Mix Buds are a great idea with an imperfect execution. The Cloud Mix Buds represent HyperX’s first foray into wireless gaming earbuds, and the inclusion of a USB-C dongle makes it clear that the company has innovation on its side. With two wireless connectivity modes, good sound quality and long battery life, the Cloud Mix Buds theoretically have everything to make a spectacular splash on the gaming audio scene.

When I started the review process, I was ready to love the $150 Cloud Mix Buds. But the longer I used them, the more I came up against potentially deal-breaking issues. The touch controls do not work properly at all; the connectivity is mercurial and hard to troubleshoot; the fit is not that good, even with three separate size options.
