The Haymaker Difference

High Quality Microphone 

For both gamers and the average user, having a quality microphone is key in order to communicate well with your teammates. Unlike the HyperX Cloud Orbit S which has a simple boom microphone, the Haymaker has invested into high quality dual condenser active noise cancelling microphones. Whether you are heading a business meeting or leading the charge in a team battle, you can be sure that your words get clearly transmitted regardless of background noise. 

Water Resistance

A key distinguishing feature for the Haymaker is its superior water and sweat resistance capabilities. Whether you’re someone who has an active lifestyle, or is dedicated to long periods of intense gaming, the Haymaker’s ability to resist damage from sweat and water gives it a cutting edge on durability over the HyperX Cloud Orbit S.

Touchscreen Controls

The Haymaker stands out with its touchscreen controls, offering a modern and intuitive interface. This feature contrasts with the traditional control buttons of the HyperX Cloud Orbit S, making The Haymaker the superior choice for users who prioritize ease of use, customizability, and contemporary design.

An All-Around headphone

The Haymaker excels in versatility with wide compatibility with different platforms, options for customizability and its superior audio capabilities, with custom tuning by DIRAC and a focus on high-definition sound quality. The HyperX Cloud Orbit S, on the other hand, is more limited in functions and does not match up to the custom-tuned sound experience provided by The Haymaker.

Comfortable Fit

For something that you wear on your head, a top priority for headphones is its weight. At 322g, the Haymaker is more than 15% lighter than the HyperX Cloud Orbit S. With the lighter weight, you can be confident for extended use without discomfort, especially during long gaming sessions.

Surround Sound by DIRAC

The Haymaker is the only headphone custom-tuned by DIRAC, a well-known company offering digital sound solutions. Its premium 7.1 surround sound adds to the overall listening and viewing experience.

Active Noise Cancellation Feature Works
Perfectly While Plugged In

One unique advantage of The Haymaker is the ability to use active noise canceling even while the headset is plugged in via an auxiliary cord or a PC controller. Typically, headphones lose this capability when plugged in, requiring users to rely on battery power for the noise-canceling feature. The Haymaker breaks from this trend, offering 30 hours of active noise canceling while plugged in, making it a versatile choice for users who prefer or require a wired connection. This feature sets it apart from competitors, which generally do not support active noise canceling in wired mode.
