Satisfying audio performance ; Comfortable design ; Clear mic

PC-only

The HyperX Cloud II Wireless gaming headset ditches the original Cloud II's cord, while delivering the same, excellent feel and sound.

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...

HyperX Cloud II Wireless review

 

The HyperX Cloud II Wireless headset retains its popular predecessor's comfort and quality, while cutting the cord.

My HyperX Cloud II Wireless review period is over, but as a work-from-home, remote-schooling gamer dad, I'll continue to use it – even if I do forget I'm wearing it sometimes.

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.

Great sound quality ; Luxurious finish ; Thoughtful extras

The Kingston HyperX Cloud II sounds great, is packed with features and has loads of great extras, making it one of the best gaming headsets available at under £100.
