Good news Gaming headset: one of the biggest references in the industry, the HyperX Cloud II, is at a knockdown price
Some gaming accessories may seem dispensable when they are not. This is the case with a good gaming headset. A headset allows you to communicate clearly with your friends / partners thanks to the integrated microphone (for teleworking, it’s also great), but also, and above all, to enjoy precise and spatialized sound, super useful when playing on an FPS for example. Right now, one of the biggest references in the industry, the HyperX Clou II is at a knockdown on Amazon.
We will go into details of the features of HyperX Cloud II below. Over the years and its reissues, this model has really established itself as a great classic in both amateur and professional circles. Compatible everywhere (PC, Mac, Switch, PS5, Xbox …), the Cloud II has succeeded in combining comfort, quality and price.
Launched fairly precisely at around 100 €, the Cloud II has just seen its price drop by 38% on Amazon. It therefore goes to € 61.99, a very high price for such a headset. It deserves an article.
HyperX Cloud II gaming headset features: a benchmark worthy of the name
This model is the one that made the company HyperX go from a small little-known brand to a juggernaut feared by all the competition. And there’s a reason for that: the Cloud II is a headset that looks like a premium model … except the price. The mouth-to-mouth has done its job, the gamers are not mistaken, the success has arrived.
Even without putting it on your ears, it is enough to have a Cloud II in your hands to realize the quality of the product. All the finishes are on point, the materials are rather upscale, the weight is surprisingly light. There are products like that, where the quality is visible even before it is tested.
But it is clear that the most important is not the design, you have to test the beast. Once on the ears, you can imagine, it is difficult to be disappointed. With its Virtual Surrond 7.1 sound, this headset has 53 mm drivers which provide Hi-Fi sound, ample and precise on all levels, especially the medium (which is essential for hearing voices properly). The idea is to perfectly localize sounds like the footsteps of your enemies but also to immerse yourself in your music or your favorite series.
The removable microphone is also remarkable. The sound is crisp and clear for everyone. It removes noise and echo, a feature that many users note and appreciate. Along the headphone cord, there is even a remote control that allows you to super easily adjust the volume but also the sensitivity of the microphone. The microphone does not allow active noise reduction: the passive reduction allowed by these closed headphones already does the job very well.
In terms of comfort, you can count on the aluminum structure to reconcile lightness and robustness. The hoop is obviously adjustable and surrounded by foam. Speaking of foam, the cushions are high quality memory foam reinforced with faux leather thick enough not to tear in a matter of months. Another pair of cushions, even softer, is available in the box.
To have such a product for this price is a feat.
