What customers say about "Key Specs"
HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset
  • Noise cancelling for noisy work and study areas (not to mention airplanes), great for gaming, and great for music. sound quality is outstanding.
  • Given the nature of the full-sized cups and conforming pads, surrounding passive noise cancellation is exactly what you'd expect: very good.
  • The noise cancelling is superb, can't hear a damn thing outside once I turn on the headphones.
  • Anti-noise - it has the best passive noise canceling of any headset I've used
  • The quality, the fit, the feel it has when it rests on my head is by far the most comforting and relaxing ever...the noise canceling blocks out sound that I don't want to hear while I'm listening to music, watching amazon video, netflix, hulu gaming on the xbox or computer.

What customers say about "Headset"
HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset
  • The foam pad on the head of the mic is removable, I guess for replacement or simply for those so inclined to do so. When the mic is detached, the headset is great for music without the boom in the way.
  • All the sounds are clear and you can hear everything. The high frequencies on these Are simply beautiful. All in all these are legit the best and would highly recommend to everyone
  • These were a huge upgrade to my old headset in terms of sound quality - especially with the 7.1 option. They do a great job capturing all frequencies of sound and playing them back.
  • If you need in game sensitivity these are the ones
  • I find these head phones have a fairly flat frequency response with dips in the higher frequencies. The bass and mid sound levels are fairly even in terms of loudness which some may dislike if they are looking for bass heavy headphones
  • Sometimes the sensitivity on the mic is way too high bit the volume adjuster also has a mic sensitivity adjuster so just fix it yourself.
HyperX Cloud Revolver S Gaming Headset with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound
  • Pretty good sound quality. 7.1 Audio works with PS4
  • Really comfortable, I can barely feel the headband on my head and the ear pads are really soft
  • Amazing frequency response. I am hearing sounds that were just not possible with the Logitech G35 it replaced. It really needs a good sound card or headphone amp to knock your socks off.
  • Surround sound does little to help with positioning. It spreads out the sound, losing some detail, and makes it sound almost echo-y at times, but otherwise doesn't help too much.
  • Ears can get hot after a while. You'll likely need to remove the headset every now and then to vent your ears.
  • Tight on larger heads like mine, and with no adjustment, gets very tiring after a few hours

What customers say about "Microphone"
HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset
  • The detachable mic is nifty. It plugs in securely on the left side with a 3.5mm jack and features an infinitely bendable but stable stalk to position it exactly where you want it.
  • The sound is good enough and the mic boom sounds fine for my casual gaming sessions. For competitive matches in CS GO or Overwatch, I do switch over to the G4ME Ones just for the convenience of the mechanical mic mute function for discord.
  • Mic Quality: Superb! I use a LOT of VOIP. Skype, Hangouts, all of it sounds a million times better with this than that old desk mic I was using. I've never had a complaint.
  • I do like the option for the detachable mic, but again, it lacks the ability to adjust voice quality, and sounds like you are talking on an old phone. I have yet to try other drivers for this.
  • My mic has also suddenly stopped functioning effectively. It's now recording my output sound. In other words, whatever I hear on my PC, is what my mic is picking up. I do not have Stereo Mix enabled or anything of that sort. I've gone ahead and reinstalled my audio drivers as well, to no avail
HyperX Cloud Revolver S Gaming Headset with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound
  • Removable microphone is a great feature.
  • Fantastic mic quality, best I have ever had
  • For having a flex-adjustment, the mic still stays exactly where I want it, awesome!
  • My friends immediately noted upon first hearing me that the new microphone sounded worse, and that it was a huge downgrade from my previous, $80 headset
  • Noise cancellation on the mic is mediocre at best. Sounds near me could still be heard, albeit barely quieter. Doesn't really block out sounds that aren't already very quiet.

What customers say about "Features"
HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset
  • Sound quality is excellent, the mic is flexible and detachable, the cable is nice and long, it comes with velvet ear pads or leather ear pads and a carrying case.
  • The "remote" built into the cord is easy to use and just adds to allure of the headset itself.
  • Listening to a Blu-ray movie on my PC it was great to hear every background sound using the 7.1 feature. Thought it was a gimmick until I tried it and I now believe.
  • Comfort 10/10 This is by far the best feature of this headset. The comfort is like no other headset I've had before. Very comfortable even after all day use. Sometimes I even forget I'm wearing them lol
  • Short cord if using just audio jack
HyperX Cloud Revolver S Gaming Headset with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound
  • Can use the headset without the USB Dongle as a regular headset
  • Very sturdily made. The steel frame extends and attaches securely to the earphones.
  • Audio is amazing, although I think 7.1 is too quiet, but it's not made for 7.1.
  • You can adjust the mic more in the windows settings, where the Cloud II you cannot (if using the USB port)
  • Slightly awkward cord length to the mute switch
  • Cups die with no recovery after a time, thus needing replacement. No idea why
  • Some music genres like rock and pop sound empty, for lack of a better term. Vocals don't sound very powerful at all
