Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset Review

/ Jan 26th, 2015 No Comments

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Review

Kingston displayed the successor to the HyperX Cloud at CES this year. Just a couple weeks later, we’ve now had our chance to put the HyperX Cloud II to the test. Does Kingston capitalize and build on its previous success?

To the Cloud

The original HyperX Cloud headset was impressively designed, and the Cloud II continues that tradition. The solid aluminum construction from the original headset carries over to the Cloud II. It is impressively sturdy, yet very light weight both off and on the head.
 

Cloud 2

Ear cups are comfortable and cushy, but get warm quickly.

Without a doubt, the HyperX Cloud II is one of the most comfortable headsets currently on the market. Coming in at 11 oz (included the microphone), it isn’t the lightest headsets, but the memory foam over the ear cups and headband make it extremely comfortable. The velour ear cushions are very plush, but they have a tendency to get slightly warm, especially during longer play sessions.

Cloud Nine

While the Cloud II is compatible with PC and consoles, it works best as a PC accessory. The USB audio control box manages to fit in a DSP (Digital Sound Processing) card to create virtual 7.1 surround sound. Surprisingly, the headset gives off the impression of 7.1 sound while playing games and watching movies. The virtual surround sound does not require any software installed on the computer. The sound card has built in volume and gain controls for the mic so there’s no need to fiddle with the settings on the computer. This may detract hardcore gamers who want full control and customization options of the headset.
 

HyperX Cloud II

The HyperX Cloud II produces quality sound at an affordable price.

The headset’s 53 mm drivers produce clean, distortion free sound even in the most bass-thumping moments. It also works fine as a regular headset in stereo on the Xbox One. However, the Xbox One headset adapter (sold separately) is required for use on the console. Many accessory makers are included the adapter with the headset, but that is not the case with the Cloud II.

Overall

The Kingston HyperX Cloud II gaming headset is one of the best headsets available on the market now. Both the audio quality and the comfort of the headset are impressive. The USB DSP works well on PC and PlayStation 4, creating clear chat functions and explosive sound.

At a price of $99.99, the Cloud II is an affordable headset that gives gamers plenty of bang for the buck. The headset is expected to be availabe in early February.
