About the Product

No more digging into console menus; Cloud in silver has convenient in-line audio control that puts everything right at your fingertips. The rugged aluminum frame is designed for long-lasting reliability and to withstand the damage of daily gaming. The 100% memory foam ear cushions and leatherette-padded headband provide award-winning comfort to help you battle through intense firefights or grind out those raids.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
HyperX Cloud Pro Gaming Headset
  • Audio quality is clear, and it is the most comfortable headset that I've ever owned. The ear cups do a good job of canceling noise out as well.
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 Pro Gaming Headset
  • The design is sleek and it is WELL made. Most headsets nowadays come with leatherette ear cups and I CAN'T STAND IT. So I was happy to see the HyperX Cloud had replaceable Velour Ear Cushions. (the cloth ones) That was a huge plus for me.
  • If you want to just chill and listen to some music, or game without talking with your friends, you can get the microphone out of your face! The different ear pads included are faux leather and nice breathable soft foam like cushion.
  • 53MM Drivers. This is better then most out there. And it is obvious in the sound. I play World of Warcraft and other MMO's, and let me tell you the sounds I can now hear that I couldn't before. The sound is so much clearer you wonder how the hell you tolerated your previous headset.
  • 53mm drivers deliver amazing bass(Be sure to have a sound card w/ an amp otherwise I hear the lows/highs are muddy)
  • The quality of the audio and comfort of the set doesn't mean much when the sound is constantly clipping and static-y due to the delicate volume adjuster on the cord.
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.

What customers say about "Microphone"
HyperX Cloud Pro Gaming Headset
  • The ability to remove the mic is a great touch, although I'd still never wear these around in public with a phone or tablet. They still look like a 'gaming headset'
  • The mic is detachable which is nice; you can bring them with you on a trip if you just want some noise-blocking headphones (note: not active noise cancelling).
  • The mic quality is great but it's not very sensitive so I have to turn up the mic volume on Skype all the way up to keep my voice audible. The mic itself is flexible and sturdy. It detaches completely and can be replaced with a small rubber cover to keep dust out and such.
  • Mic clarity is very good. Sound quality is borderline equal with my ATH-M50x headphones that broke, and that's really impressive for a headset that's half the price and designed for gaming, not music.
  • The mic is decent, but lacks low end. I imagine this may have been on purpose as it will likely make you easier to hear over the game.
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

What customers say about "Features"
HyperX Cloud Pro Gaming Headset
  • The cord is braided and has held up through almost 2 years of heavy use without any tears or other damage.
  • The cord is very long, so I plugged it into my TV and was able to turn the volume very loud (Volume Problem solved).
  • Multiple cord segments allows you to decide how long you want your cord to be. For me, the extra length is nice, as I run the cord around the back of my monitor.
  • Non-detachable mic cord. The braided cable simply splits into speaker and microphone jacks, which is really annoying for someone who uses a dedicated microphone.
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
