In this post we’ll be going over my review of the HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset made by Kingston.
This headset has become one of the top of the line gaming headsets on the market and in this article we’ll go over why that is.
The Pros And Cons Of The Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset
- Top Of The Line Audio Specifications With 53mm Drivers Audio Drivers & 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound
- Noise Cancelling Microphone
- Memory Foam Ear Pads
- Can Be Used On Multiple Types Of Gaming Systems
- Some Folks May Not Like That The Mic Is Detachable
There’s not a lot to dislike about this headset and even the stuff I did find was minimal at best.
With that said, no headset that I’ve come across is 100% perfect in my opinion so in the unlikely chance that one of the manufacturer actually reads my review they might take what I list as the downsides when brainstorming their next headset.
On HyperX Cloud 2 I will say that being able to detach the mic is something I wasn’t thrilled about, I want something that is built and can’t be taken apart (you know what I mean).
Other than that the only thing I can say as a downside is that this headset isn’t very aesthetic to the eyes but I don’t really care much about that.
Everything else on this headset I give a huge thumbs up on, in which I’ll be covering in more detail below.
Is The Sound Quality Good?
The HyperX Cloud II features some of the most impressive tech specs for audio that I’ve seen in a headset in this price range.
You’ll find that this headset features 53mm drivers audio drivers & 7.1 virtual surround sound which enough to make any gamer get down right giddy, that’s right I said giddy!
To make the audio even better, the earcups are made to cup over your ears, which helps with trapping in that sound to give it a more immersive type of feel to it.
Basically what I’m getting at here is yeah, the sound quality is really good.
How About The Mic?
The microphone is an above average in terms of overall quality thanks to features such as noise cancelling.
It produces solid quality that most gamers would be very pleased with.
The one thing that I’m not super thrilled about is the fact that the mic is able to be taken off and reapplied to the headset.
This may just be a pet-peeve type of thing with me personally but I don’t want to be able to detach stuff off of my gaming gear.
Other may love this but for me not so much.
How Comfortable Is This Headset?
Comfort is very important when it comes to gaming headsets, yet so many gamers overlook it as they are more focused on other things like the mic quality.
This is easy to do but make sure you look as the headset as a whole.
Imagine buying a sweet looking car, decked with remote key less entry and top of the line audio equipment buy the seats are made of wood.
The seats are insanely important but most of us get caught up looking at the paint job.
Okay that rant is over, back to the HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset!
This headset has memory foam ear pads, along with some padding on the inner half on the top part of the headset which make for a very comfy fit.
Where To Buy Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset
If you’ve decided that this headset is the one you want to go with and are looking around on where to buy it then I can recommend a couple of options for you.
First off check on Amazon which is where I get pretty much all of my gaming gear.
If for some reason I can’t get it from Amazon I look at either bestbuy, newegg and also over at the manufacturers website.
You should be looking having at least one option on where to buy this headset after looking at the ones I mentioned if not multiple options.
