The box of the HyperX Cloud Flight will be familiar to anyone who's bought a HyperX gaming headset before, or at least saw one on store shelves. It's based on a recognizable red and black color scheme and contains a couple of pretty pictures of the headset and a breakdown of its key features, as well as a list of sponsored gaming organizations (IEM, Dreamhack, Team Liquid, Echo Fox, and so on). One bullet point caught my attention: "90° rotating ear cups with LED lighting effects". Uh-oh, silly and pointless LEDs on a wireless headset spell trouble in terms of battery life. We'll definitely get back to that on the next page of the review.
Inside the box you'll find the Cloud Flight headset, detachable microphone, wireless USB dongle, two rubberized cables (Micro-USB charging and 3-pole TRS audio), a quick start guide, "thank you" note, and some warranty info.
