HyperX Cloud II Headset for PS4, Xbox & PC Gaming Review
Next, we review the HyperX Cloud II, which is a redesign of the original model, and features a new, inline sound card that produces hi-fidelity music. There is also an independent recording device and speaker volume adjustment, which means that you can adjust incoming voice transmission volumes to match or exceed your in game music, a must for real time chats. In addition to this is a physical mute button for the microphone and a Surround Sound 7.1 toggle button as well.
The main advantage of having a surround system such as Surround Sound 7.1 is the illusion of depth and distance that is created. This creates an immersive environment for gamers and can help to enhance the overall experience of play, be it multiplayer or single player orientated. This unit does not need drivers to operate, which is a nice feature as it allows for hassle free cross platform compatibility.
This product also features a digitally enhanced recording unit with noise cancellation technology, meaning that the irritating feedback and buzzing noise that is associated with most other cheap microphone can be avoided all together. So effective is this system that Teamspeak has given it its stamp of approval, rating it as being Teamspeak certified. Those that are concerned about longevity and build quality need not worry, as this unit is covered by a massive 2-year warranty.
The HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset also features Hi-Fi capable 53mm drivers for fantastic sound recreation and listening pleasure. The standalone sound card also ensures that your lows, mids, highs and bass tones will be recreated as crisply and as clearly as is possible. All of this is powered by a standard USB connector, and sound connectivity is provided by means of a 3.5mm headphone jack. This is available in both red and gun-metal grey, and features a comfortable head-strap with memory foam ear cushioning for extended play time with added comfort for the best experience of 2017.
