Price and Availability
The Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset is now available and comes with a retail price of around $99.99 in the US, at the time I published this review. There are some retailers selling it for a much higher price, around $150 to $190, but it should be just around $99 UDS. For now it comes in two different colors, the Gun Metal (KHX-HSCP-GM) and the Red variant (KHX-HSCP-RD). There is another Pink Limited edition (KHX-HSCP-PK) coming in the near future. The company is also offering a two-year warranty and free technical support.
In UK, the Cloud II currently retails for £74.99, and you can order one here.
HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset Review: Conclusion
Like the first HyperX Cloud, I’m still pretty much impressed with the HyperX Cloud II. It’s definitely more comfortable to wear and the addition of the USB DAC with 7.1 surround effect is very much welcomed. It looks like Kingston HyperX is dedicated in perfecting and pushing their products further. Sound quality is definitely superb for a $99 pair of cans and it’s pretty much the same with the first Cloud. There’s really nothing to like about the Cloud II.
If you already have the first Cloud, don’t expect noticeable improvements in the sound quality because it’s basically the same driver. But, expect that it is very much comfortable to wear compared to the first one, and it has a virtual 7.1 surround sound effect that should give you a different perspective when gaming.
The company has nailed it again with their HyperX Cloud II and I find no reason why I should not recommend this to you. For the price, the Cloud II will do a great job and will definitely satisfy your gaming experience. I still think that this is one of the best gaming headsets currently on the market and this should really make your list short if you are considering other options. Finally, another great product like the Cloud II deserves The PC Enthusiast’s Editor’s Choice.
