The HyperX Cloud II has been a reigning king in the world of sub-$100 gaming headsets. The comfortable build, solid sound quality, and impressive microphone made it a favorite of many and now HyperX aims to improve on its best-selling headset with a wireless version.

    Earcups get hot in extended sessions, Subpar microphone

The HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II headset is good for gaming. They have low latency, a wired USB connection, a fairly well-balanced audio reproduction, and a great noise filtering mic.

  • +

    Negligible latency., Good audio reproduction and microphone., Well-built and comfortable design.

    Poor noise isolation., Slightly bulky., Can sound sharp on some tracks., Bass delivery varies significantly across users. Sensitive to glasses.

The HyperX Cloud II headset has landed and landed chock full of a quality you can’t expect in a sub $100 Pro-gaming headset. From the powder coated brushed aluminum to the memory foam ear cups you’ll be hard pressed to find one thing on the Cloud II not geared toward quality.

Bought them for Xbox series X and they are really good though you can’t use the usb dongle for the 7.1 sound. There’s some ppl saying that they are not loud trust me they are, all you have to do is press the home button go all the way down to the right side and select the volume icon to setup the...

I Have Had Three Of These Headsets Over The Years. They Are Nice, But There Are A Few Problems That Repeatedly Pop Up. The Clip On The USB Connector Always Fails First. The 3.5mm Jack Will Start To Feel Loose Inside The USB Connector After A Few Months.

I got this headset because I wanted one with a breaded cord and a real mic; I don't trust the cordless headphones with the built in mic. I love how the memory foam is so comfortable, I actually forget I'm wearing it. The sound quality is great and it's truly a "noise canceling headset".

  • +

    Comfortable, Great Microphone, Great Sound Quality, Highly Compatible, Lightweight, Stylish

when using this head set I ran into a problem or maybe a few , u cannot use them for a gaming pc / laptop . The audio cuts out mid way while playing or just point blank doesn't work to begin with, me personally I use it to play rainbow six siege , its amazing to play with this head set while playing...

21 February 2021

great for pc gaming. the mic is nice and the sound is fantastic. better than my old razers in audio quality. I personally doubt use the mic, as I have a separate setup for that, so I appreciate that you can unplug the mic easily.

Good quality headset. You have to pretty much turn it full volume on the PS4, but it sounds fine. The sound card adds so much also.

16 April 2018

My first headset, and almost everything's great, but one issue: the microphone setting. The headset tries to make you use their in-built mic settings, not the system ones. However, the maximum volume it goes to is extremely low, which made me have to use a bunch of workarounds to increase it to...

3rd pair I've had in 4 or so years. I use them daily so they are abused. However this last pair is completely different. The audio quality is still great, but the overall build and feel of the headset is different. They're lighter, the side pieces are plastic now, not metal.

22 November 2016

- I recommend it because it is a overall durable quality headset, but I personnally have to use it with another spliter (without the audio card), because sound cuts are annoying.

  • +

    - Great headphone sound quality - Amazing noise cancellation - Good build quality (durable) - Braided cable

  • -

    - Splitter is NOT universal (doesn't fit in my computer) - Audio cuts rather often when using the 7.1 soundcard (from what I know it doesn't affect all headsets) - Microphone quality is a littlebit bellow average

7 December 2022

The HyperX Cloud II is probably the best headset in it's price range. It's booming basses and sharp highs are fantastic, along with it's outstanding build quality. If you're thinking about buying these headphones, I would totally suggest you get them.
