HyperX Cloud 2 Headset

Final Thoughts

GoldFrom top to bottom the HyperX Cloud II drips quality, sound reproduction was true at the 2.0 level when listening to music. The Dolby 7.1 was appreciated during game play, the memory foam ear cups were comfortable for extended periods and never cooked my ears.  The addition of a spare (red) set of ear cup pads is a welcome surprise and the overall quality of the headset makes you wonder how HyperX makes any money off the sale of a Cloud II Headset.

The 53mm neodymium driver push sound out with incredibly accurate reproduction and fullness.  Having seen my share of concerts and sunk enough money into Vinyl, cassette, CD and yes even 8 track the sound the HyperX Cloud II provides is reminiscent of full sized stereo consoles. audiophiles that still love full sized consoles understand the joy of the rich full sound they provide, HyperX has reproduced that level of full bodied sound.

Both music and gaming sound reproduction was excellent as long as you leave Dolby 7.1 to games and Dolby 2.0 to music, the bang for buck price the HyperX Cloud boasts is virtually unbeatable. The HyperX Cloud II should be welcome addition to any gaming arsenal and won’t break the bank.
