Kingston might be so popular among the PC users because of their memory and storage line up series, but for gaming headset it’s different. They only started few years ago and they already have some products that are interested to see. They have released the HyperX Cloud a year ago and now it comes with newer version with the same design, but comes with many enhancements on it. The audio rig aims to offer many things that average gamer will expect from a headset. The product is not only designed for specific PC, but also compatible with gaming console including PS4 and others. You don’t need to buy specific product because you got it all here. To make it easier for you to decide, here the full review about this furniture. So we hope you enjoy it.
What It Is
Basically HyperX Cloud II is a gaming headset who is specifically designed for playing games. Its different from what we found on normal audio rig because the quality is so much better especially when you are playing games with many sounds effect such as FPS games. I didn’t have the older version of it, but I see that it has the same design and now it includes the ability to get 7.1 surround sounds by using USB sound card. This feature actually adds better experience on using it because you would get better audio support if you have supported sounds card. You would never find any much different if you already have the previous version, but I think it’s much better now because of some enhancements that made by the company.
The 7.1 surround sound is not the only new thing that they put here. I also found that now it has some major tweaks on how the microphone handling the noise when we speak. Many people make any critics about its microphone because it has so many noises when we are using it. I have tested it for using it for few weeks and I didn’t find any strange noise or annoying noise from it. My partner can clearly see what say and I also could see their voice clearly. They don’t only reduce the noise, but they completely get rid of it. The sound performance is top notch in my opinion at least for average gamer. Don’t expect any surprising for the sounds, but it is good enough for playing games in many hours. If you are the one who cancel to buy this product last year, then you have no worry to try it now.
I have received the product few weeks ago and it comes with complete things on the inside. When you open the box you would find some different things enclosure within a cardboard. The design for the box is good, but that is not the thing that I will talk here. on the inside I found a pair of ear cups that comes with two different design. You can choose between the cloth and faux leather. Then it is included a USB controller cord with so many great functions such as volume adjustment and microphone button to activate its 7.1 sounds feature. The other additional things including 3.5 jack adapter, extra microphone, and carrying bag are also good and I have to say that they put it completely in comparable with the price tag.

How did it Sounds?
Originally I only used it just to play many games that I have on my computer. well, I actually not too getting used to play games on console. But I have to try it and then plug it into my PS4. The result is similar to what I feel on using it on PC. it provides plenty of punch and the bass is looks powerful. The only thing that I missed here is the adjustment. There is not much anything to touch if you use it on console, but the default setting is already good and you don’t have to adjust anything.
Although the price is really cheap for this kind of product, I need to give big compliment for the sounds quality. You could find so many details on the sounds producing and it doesn’t have too many noises when I am putting it at the highest volume. If you want to use its 7.1 virtual sounds, I need to stress that the feature is using multi source channel so it is not only usable for gaming, but also watching movies or just listen to any music.

The product is what gamer want for a perfect audio support. The company packed the feature nicely with tons of loads and great additional things on it. Kingston kept their promise to upgrade their products to be better by giving many enchantments on the sounds quality. Don’t waste your time of looking on other one because everything is perfect here.
