About the Product
HyperX Cloud II features a redesigned USB sound card audio control box that amplifies audio and voice for an optimal Hi-Fi gaming experience, so you can hear what you’ve been missing.

The preferred headset for professional gamers throughout the world. German-engineered speaker technology and a top-notch noise-cancelling microphone deliver outstanding hi-fi performance that let you focus on the game, not your headset.

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.
Sennheiser Game One Gaming Headset - Black
  • Quality construction, very comfortable and sturdy. Excellent sound quality from headphones
  • The headphones themselves work great, amazing sound quality and clarity, no distortions or static detected so far.
  • With the Game One headphones I can clearly make out what direction sound is coming from, which is especially nice in a fps. These work great with the Xbox One, and my friends say the chat is super clear.
  • Music sounds very good, but not the best.
  • The sound is great, but it is uncomfortable to wear. I have a medium sized woman's head. The head phones are very tight at the bottom of my jaw where the headphones place pressure.

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
Sennheiser Game One Gaming Headset - Black
  • Microphone is crisp, clear, and has built-in noise cancelling
  • Can mute microphone by pivoting it upwards
  • Mic conveniently turns off/on when you flip it up/down.
  • These have the best mic. Period. The mic’s sound isolation, voice quality, build quality, and convenience are fantastic.
  • People I talk to online say that the mic is very loud and "bad". I turned down mic input volume just so it would be tolerable for them.
  • The sound quality is mediocre and when gaming the mic leaks sound in voice channels. Avoid gaming mics they aren't worth it.
  • There is a problem however with the microphone itself. Using any form of communication via the microphone (discord, skype, etc..) I have had people telling me the sound is somewhat soft.

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
Sennheiser Game One Gaming Headset - Black
  • XL earcups add to comfort immensely
  • Braided cord can withstand quite a bit of use and abuse.
  • Removable headphone wire. This isn't HUGE but it is incredibly nice. In the box is a standard split headphone/mic cord that's quite long, and a much shorter cord that is a combo headphone/mic cord for smart phones or similar devices.
  • Slightly bulky. Does not fold up for storage/travel.
