What customers say about "Key Specs"
Corsair HS60 Surround Gaming Headset (PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch) - Carbon
  • These are crazy comfortable. I have big ears and they go completely over my ear easily. They are extremely light to where you forget they are on.
  • The padding and adjustability make the headset comfortable enough to wear for extended periods of time.
  • The headset itself is comfy and sticks to my large melon head very well and feels like two clouds nestling onto my ears.
  • I wear them at work during the day for extended periods of time and find them comfortable.
HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile, Red
  • 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"
Corsair HS60 Surround Gaming Headset (PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch) - Carbon
  • Sound level is loud enough to where I can sometimes watch videos and not have to switch back to desktop speakers. Bass is lacking like with any gaming headset.
  • The sound is very good and is very accurate for sensing directional noises in games.
  • It has good amount of loudness and it's true. This headset is louder compared to most of it's counterparts. It's even louder compared to a $200 headset that I tried.
  • Great sound quality for the price and super easy to hear enemies coming from behind you.
  • Stereo mode is great for watching videos/ listening to music. And the surround sound is great for knowing where footsteps and gunfire is coming from while playing games.
HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile, Red
  • 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"
Corsair HS60 Surround Gaming Headset (PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch) - Carbon
  • The microphone quality is also quite good, and the goose-neck mic lets you adjust it for your specific dimensions.
  • The material of the microphone is good, easily adjustable and doesn’t seem like it’ll break anytime.
  • The mic on the headphone is crisp and clear, and so it the sound.
  • Microphone does a good job of picking up sound without having to tell into it. No issues.
  • The mic is soft and quiet but in a good way, makes it less harsh to those listening to me.
  • The biggest downside of it is the mic, it's not that good, at all. HOWEVER. The mic is detachable allowing you to use a separate usb mic.
HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile, Red
  • 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"
Corsair HS60 Surround Gaming Headset (PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch) - Carbon
  • The cord is very long so there will be no issues there and even comes with a velcro tie to shorten it.
  • You can also plug the headset directly into any aux port, including your phone and use it to listen to music or watch videos when you're not at home.
  • The headphones are quality, easy to use, and do not require a lot of setup. You can immediately start using them after you hook up the USB. Great value for the money.
  • The quality of materials and sound from this headset is great, even on the detachable microphone. The usb surround sound adapter is great.
  • The quality of the cord is also amazing its tough and doesnt seem like it'll break easily like most other headset cords.
HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile, Red
  • 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
