What customers say about "Key Specs"
HyperX Cloud (KHX-H3CL/WR) Cloud Gaming Headset for PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile, Black
  • The headset is very comfortable. I wear my headset nearly all day and it never hurts.
  • The headset evenly distributes pressure on the head band so it's not focused just on the top of my head. The headphones do not touch my ears in any meaningful way.
  • It is the most comfortable headset that I've ever owned. The ear cups do a good job of canceling noise out as well.
  • Comfort is good, you get both leather and fabric earpads so you can have your choice and they aren't too tight on your head either, they feel very comfortable.
  • The headphones are very solidly build, the headband is made of a lovely soft touch material that you can use for hours at a time without realising it's still there.
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"
HyperX Cloud (KHX-H3CL/WR) Cloud Gaming Headset for PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile, Black
  • The sound quality of this headset is great and it's comfortable!
  • The sound for headphones is pretty amazing. It delivers reasonably well across a wide dynamic range and base has a nice kick to it.
  • Sound quality through the headset is good with great balance, mids are clear and the bass is present but not overpowering or muddy. Highs are a little quiet.
  • They sounded amazing, I heard things in the game I hadn't heard so clear on other headsets the road noise and engine noise was outstanding.
  • My only gripe is with the speaker head comforters that while can go on easily, often fall off.
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"
HyperX Cloud (KHX-H3CL/WR) Cloud Gaming Headset for PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile, Black
  • The mic is a tad quiet, though it is significantly better than all headsets I've tried so far.
  • The microphone is pretty standard for a gaming headset.
  • The mic is amazingly clear & not in the way.
  • The mic is detachable, and it comes with it's own built in volume control. It`s nice.
  • Everyone I have spoken to says they can hear me nice and clearly, and I never have trouble distinguishing game and chat audio.
  • The microphone is horrible. I'm not sure for the reason, but it picks up even moderate volume sound from the headphones.
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"
HyperX Cloud (KHX-H3CL/WR) Cloud Gaming Headset for PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile, Black
  • Current manufacturer pricing is amazing for the quality of build. Best build quality I've had in a headset, ever.
  • The headphones are fine in regards to sound and comfort. It should be noted that these are designed for PC/Mac first, console second.
  • Overall it's a very good headset and feels like it'll stand up to years of use, the aluminium construction feels solid and of high quality.
  • Unbelievable quality for the price. Beautifully solid with a high quality weighty feel, with superior materials used throughout, really nice leather stitched band across the top.
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
