Kingston’s HyperX Cloud II is one of the best gaming headsets you can get. With strong audio specs, a solid design and excellent support options, this PC gaming headset is a gift that’ll be hard to beat for the gamer in your family this holiday season. Plus, its low price won’t bust your holiday budget.
The set easily reproduces low tones. The headphones are rated for as low as 15Hz, so you’ll enjoy responsive bass, which is a huge plus in most types of gaming. Additionally, these headphones can handle frequencies up to 25kHz, as well as everything in between. The built-in microphone also has a great response range, as it can pick up frequencies from as low as 50Hz up to 18kHz. This impressive range means you can expect a good capture and transmit of your voice.
The HyperX has 53 mm drivers – some of the largest around – allowing it to easily push air around for a larger variance in sound production, which is part of why it’s so easily able to reproduce extreme highs and lows. Its in-line volume control function is impressive: You can adjust the volume with a scroll wheel, mute sound and lock your volume setting with a switch to prevent accidental bumps.
While the HyperX Cloud II headset isn’t designed to be fully noise-cancelling, it still cancels noise passively, as it covers your entire ear. This helps you enjoy game audio clearly while blocking out unwanted noise.
Made of plastic and aluminum, with leather covering the padded headband and ear cups, this is one of the lightest gaming headsets around. It’s designed to reduce the amount of pressure put on your ears, allowing you to game for hours in comfort. When you’re not using it, you can store the headset and its components it the included protective case; however, they don’t collapse or fold into a smaller size for storage or portability.
The Kingston HyperX Cloud II is one of the best gaming headsets you can buy. Its ability to produce quality sound for both highs and lows, as well as the myriad of microphone options, make it a powerful product – especially for the price. Furthermore, its padded design is meant to be comfortable and won’t apply much pressure on yours ears, even when you leave the headset on for hours, making it a great gift for audiophile gamers.
