Kingston HyperX Cloud II Headset

 

The Kingston HyperX Cloud II is a gaming headset that doubles as an unassuming pair of good-sounding, over-ear headphones.

Attractive, understated design. Solid build quality. Works with PCs and mobile devices as well as most modern game systems.

Virtual 7.1-channel surround isn't effective. Besides the USB sound card, cable isn't detachable.

The Kingston HyperX Cloud II is a well-built, comfortable, excellent-sounding gaming headset that comes with its own optional USB sound card. It's generous with accessories, and will work with all computers and mobile devices, and most game systems out...

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Headset review

 

Kingston is a leader in the memory and storage market, but the company has recently expanded its product portfolio to more completely cover the gamer's needs.

Summing up, it seems that Kingston is offering a headset that sounds as good as other headsets that cost much more. Although the device is not intended to replace your Hi-fi headphones, it offers a balanced headset solution for gaming and also for your...

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Review (Page 1 of 4)

 

Ask me what my favorite color is, and I would probably say something like blue. I am not entirely sure why, but the color blue is calming and ferocious at the same time. In my wardrobe, my clothing reflects a similar trend, as most of my clothing is...

One day I was talking to a friend when she said something embarrassing, to which I sarcastically responded, "respect++". Unfortunately, she was not exactly knowledgeable with programming syntax, so I had to explain the increment operator to her. This...

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Review: King of Comfort

 

If you want a good-sounding gaming headset for less than $100, the HyperX Cloud II ($99) is one of the most comfortable, stylish options you can buy. The headset's virtual 7.1 surround-sound capabilities do an admirable job of highlighting your games'...

Best-in-class comfort ; Stylish, lightweight design ; Includes both pleather and plush ear covers

Lackluster bass ; No software for customizing sound

The Kingston HyperX Cloud II is one of the most stylish, coziest sub-$100 headsets available, though its low end is lacking.

Kingston HyperX Cloud II: The Best Gamer Headphones for $100…Still [Review]

 

I'm a gamer, not quite hardcore but just a notch above casual. Here's the problem, gaming is expensive or at least it can be. If you're a notch above a casual gamer like me then a set of gaming headphones is essential….absolutely essential. Even if you...

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset Review

 

Last year we took a look at Kingston's original HyperX Cloud Gaming headset and there really was not much to not like about it. Now on its second iteration we

– Built with quality materials ; – Great sound and 7.1 virtual surround sound ; – Removable microphone ; – Comes with carrying case ; – Can be used in stereo or USB mode ; – 2 different sets of earcups included

– No control software for the sound card ; – Need an adapter if you want to use it in stereo mode with a PC and be able to use the microphone

I have been using the HyperX Cloud II headset for a couple of weeks now and it has become my main headset and it does not look like I will be going back to my previous headset anytime soon. As I said before the original Cloud headset was extremely...
