The HyperX Cloud II Headset delivers exceptional audio quality through it’s simulated 7.1 headset when enabled. Not only does it serve as a gaming headset, the microphone is also pretty sensitive and is able to pick up the audio and mask down the background noise effectively. This is apparent if you use it for Skype calls.
The design is top notch and you can hardly feel the headband pressing on your head. The ear cups are soft and are comfortable but it might get too warm and you perspire a lot. The buttons on the USB control box is a bit hard to press but it can be overcome.
Overall, I think HyperX is a pretty gaming headset as it is able to deliver pretty good bass and audio quality in gaming. It will also suit those movie buffs who can’t afford a true 7.1 system in the room without getting complains from your neighbours. Although the reproduction is good, it lacks a bit of treble. How nice if we are able to have an equaliser to tune it to your preference. We give the HyperX Cloud II Headset our Gold Award. We also look forward to new headsets supporting Dolby Atmos for true object sound.
