HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II Review

It offers more customization due to the Turtle Beach Audio Hub software and are slightly better sounding than the HyperX.

HyperX Cloud II Wireless review

This wireless gaming headset is made mainly of aluminum, with a flexible headband and ear cups that feature thick memory foam cushions covered in soft leatherette. People with glasses might not find it quite so comfortable, but the softness of the ear pads makes establishing a decent seal pretty easy. For everything else, you’ll need to install HyperX’s Ngenuity app, which lets you adjust mic volume, sidetone, power saver functions, and turn on virtual surround sound. However, the HyperX Cloud II Wireless joins an even smaller group of gaming headsets by cracking the 30 hour mark.

It handled the surround sound demands of Overwatch, as well as the stereo experiences in games like Hades and Dauntless on PC, all while in a Discord call. The dip in the highs isn’t all that worrying, either—it’s a fairly common trait in headphones and meant to avoid natural resonances in the ear. The neutral-leaning frequency response may mean that bass in genres like EDM lack the impact that some expect, but you definitely won’t run into any issues with distorted sound or auditory masking with the Cloud II Wireless. In Strange Timez off the new Gorillaz album, everything from the piercing echoed notes at the beginning of the song to subtler bleeps and bloops running throughout, to Damon Albarn’s affected backing vocals comes through very clearly. Avoiding the typical boosted bass means you shouldn’t even have much trouble picking the sounds of footsteps out from the din of gunfire in games like Fortnite or Valorant. The HyperX Cloud II Wireless offers isolation on par with most gaming headsets, which means it’s attenuation is generally not great.

You won’t run into any issues with the typical sounds of home, but you’re probably als0 not in danger of missing any doorbells anytime soon (depending on how loud you have the volume). It’s not as steep a drop-off as many gaming headsets have, but the bottom line is still the same: people with deep voices may find they sound a little tinny and a little quiet when speaking into this microphone.

The HyperX Cloud II Wireless is a great example of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” logic at work. The addition of wireless capabilities, paired with a decent enough microphone and audio on par with the HyperX Cloud Alpha makes this a pretty sweet deal for under $150 USD. If you’re a ride-or-die console gamer, something like HyperX Cloud Flight S checks all the same boxes, but also includes 7.1 virtual surround sound on PlayStation 4. The recent Razer Barracuda X is also great USB-C wireless option, with its ultralight build and solid audio.

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Review – Kwaliteit voor weinig geld

Men spreekt soms weleens van een ervaring als het gaat om producten of diensten. De HyperX Cloud II kent – net als zijn voorganger – een soortgelijke ervaring.

Deze voelt erg luxe aan door het gebruik van ijzer, gestikte naden en een leerachtige vormgeving. Dit zorgt ervoor dat je niet zo snel last hebt van kabelbreuken.

Minder speling op de kabels zorgt vaak voor een langere levensduur. Als laatste zijn er nog twee soorten oorschelpen in de doos aanwezig.

De (nep)leren variant sluit beter af en drukt iets meer op je oor. De HyperX Cloud II is ook met een traditionele jack-plug te gebruiken, dus je kunt ook gerust met je iPod, smartphone of tablet genieten van een heerlijk mopje muziek.

Helaas is de set voor consolegamers niet ideaal, vanwege het lange draad over je (woonkamer)vloer en de 7.1 USB-geluidskaart die niet met consoles samenwerkt.

Kingston HyperX Cloud II review: Cloud met USB

Destijds waren we daar erg enthousiast over en met ons heel wat kopers van deze headset. We kregen al de nodige verzoeken deze ook te bespreken. Gezien het prijsverschil van zo’n 20 à 30 euro is dat alleen wellicht niet voldoende om de knoop door te hakken.

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Headset Review

However, most gaming headsets embrace brightly colored highlights, sharp lines, glowing lights, and a general science-fiction aesthetic. The headband and pre-installed earpads are made of a leather-like material and memory foam, and sit comfortably on the head without feeling too heavy or tight.

The earcups are connected with solid metal joints that click at specific points as you move them in and out of the headband, but don’t fold or swivel.

Despite clever fades between left and right, I didn’t get a sense of any opponents or monsters really manifesting in front of, behind, or at any angle relative to me; it was all just stereo action.

Since the Cloud II can easily double as a pair of over-ear headphones by removing the boom mic and either plugging the headset into a smartphone or tablet or using it with the USB adapter on your computer, we tested it for how well it can handle music, not just game audio. At maximum volume it handled both the bass synth notes and the kick drum hits without a hint of distortion while presenting an appreciable amount of force in the low end.

The headset’s sculpted sound focuses on the lows and highs, and this really shows in MC Lars’ ode to ska, “This Gigantic Robot Kills.” Kevin Swalby of The Heavy’s higher vocals have a much easier time staying in the spotlight of “How You Like Me Now,” where it punches into the foreground of the mix to stand alongside the prominent bass and drums. The Kingston HyperX Cloud II is a well-built, comfortable, excellent-sounding gaming headset that comes with its own optional USB sound card. You can also go wireless with the excellent Skullcandy PLYR 1 ( at Amazon) headset if you don’t mind losing mobile device compatibility for home convenience. Finally, if you’re just looking for an inexpensive headset you can use with anything, the Tritton Kama ( at Amazon) can be found for a fifth of the Cloud II’s price, though you’ll obviously be compromising significantly on sound quality. Kingston HyperX Cloud II Headset 4.0 Editors’ Choice See It $59.00 at Amazon MSRP $149.99 Pros Attractive, understated design.

The Bottom Line The Kingston HyperX Cloud II is a gaming headset that doubles as an unassuming pair of good-sounding, over-ear headphones.
