      Super Comfortable Headset

      I am a big fan of the HyperX Cloud lineup. I have tried out many versions (the Cloud, Cloud II, CloudX, Cloud Pro, and the Core). They all have their own little advantages, but one thing is consistent - comfort. These are hands down the most comfortable headsets you can get in this price range. I have played for 4+ hours without any fatigue or ear discomfort. They are clearly well built. It's an aluminum frame, so I need not worry about broken plastic. The cord has a woven sleeve, the mic boom is sturdy while still remaining bendable, and the ear cups are plush. I picked up the Cloud Core on sale for $60, and it is an amazing value (even at its normal $70). The headset comes with a detachable mic, a single 3.5mm connector, and PC Y splitter cable. I can plug the headset straight into my XBOX One Controller (I have the updated controller with the 3.5mm jack), or I can plug the Y splitter cable into my computer. There are no other frills to this headset, but to be honest, I don't think you need anything more. I have had a really good experience with the sound and mic quality of the headset. I use it to play XBOX late at night, so I won't wake up my wife and kids. I normally play with my 7.1 setup, so I was unsure about stepping down to a stereo headset. I was very impressed with the sound quality of the drivers. Nothing seems overblown, the speakers aren't tinny, the bass is just right, and everything is nice and clear. My teammates have no complaints for the mic. They don't hear any background noise, and my voice comes through perfectly clear. This headset is the base model for the lineup. It doesn't come with any volume control (like the Cloud I volume box, the Cloud II USB sound card, or the CloudX in-line volume knob), carrying case, or extra ear cups (you can order replacements for $10 from HyperX). However, my headset will never leave the house (no case needed), I have a a high end MOBO w/ Creative Soundblaster Cinema3 onboard (no USB sound card needed), my keyboard has a volume control (no volume control box needed), and I can quickly adjust the volume/balance through the XBOX menu (no inline control needed). The headset supports mic monitoring through the XBOX controller 3.5mm plug (can't use the stereo adapter if you want this feature - you need the full chat pad or the Turtle Beach adapter for mic monitoring). The Core fit all of my needs. If you absolutely need the other things I listed above, then by all means. But if you find yourself in a similar situation as myself, then the Cloud Core is perfect.

      I have gone through many headsets looking for the perfect PS4 set. I went from PS Gold to Steelseries Arctis 7 to TB Stealth 600 and now to these. I admit that the Steelseries were probably the nicest set of them all, but they lacked depth. Something about them made me feel like I was missing something during the action (even after using the engine to tune them for a few hours). I also could not control the in game chat volume from the headset since I was using them with the PS4. So, I then tried the TB 600's and they were just kind of garbage relative to the Steelseries. Not as comfortable and sounded cheap. I figured I would just give these a try even though I did not want a wired set... well, very glad I did it. These have about the same comfort as the Arctis 7's, but a more robust sound. They seem to just have a deeper, more rich tone that I prefer. I play a LOT of CoD online and I can hear everything and feel everything with these. They just seem to provide the low end oomph that the Steelseries lacked, but not in an overpowering, sloppy kind of way. I also have heard that the mic is great from my friends. There are two things I don't like, one of which is the cord. The other is that there is no mic monitoring, so I cannot hear myself talk. I like to have that because these have some pretty good sound isolation. I am able to overlook this for the price and performance though. Everything else about them screams quality. I would recommend these for an Xbox with the adapter over the PS4 just plugged into the controller, but know that they will be pretty darn amazing regardless.

      Amazing headset

      Honestly i don’t know how i would only wear my default mic with my PS4. They do an amazing job canceling out sounds so if you have a child or other priorities in your home I’d recommend keeping one ear open. They are extremely comfortable as well. I wear glasses and usually deal with discomfort when anything presses my ear against the frames, not with these though. Mic quality is well also. Comes with a sleeve to go over and the mic is detachable and adjustable: so if you have a natural loud voice you can turn it away from your mouth if needed . Sound quality is on point as well. I play Overwatch and when i have enemies on my left or right, it gets sent to the side they are on. If you’re thinking of purchasing i would definitely pull the trigger on these . I wouldn’t recommend the wireless just because of battery issues and delay as well.

      I purchased for my 15-yr old son, and he stated that this headset is extremely comfortable and has good feedback with the detachable mic. He uses with PS4 but the optional cable does provide PC connectivity. The headset is "wired" however, it's wired to the PS4 controller which is wireless. So far, there hasn't been a huge degradation in battery life to the controller. Even then, the controller can still be hooked up to a charging cable while playing. We had no issues in setting up audio preferences in the PS4 settings menu. They're extremely good with noise-cancelling too as they cover the entire ear and provide immersive sound. They are no audiophile headphones, but they serve their purpose well. Lastly, the black/red design "looks cool". That's important too. right?

      Not worth the money

      Posted
      Echo6

      I bought this headset less then a week ago to replace my Turtle Beach PX24's and I'm extremely unhappy. First off there is NO mic monitoring. You feel like you have to talk loud/yell to hear yourself or have anyone else hear you. This is even after doing the mic adjustments through the settings menu. This is probably my biggest issue. Second, the only way to mute yourself is to pull out the mic; which is hard to due when you're mid-match. A mute button would have been nice. Third, they are not as comfortable as you are lead to believe. Sure, at first they feel good, but anything beyond a 2-3 hour session you can begin to feel the squeeze and weight of the headset. The only plus of this headset is the aluminum frame. I do give a thumbs up in that regard. All in all, for short time use and only basic functionality needs this will get the job done, but if you lean towards the serious side look elsewhere.

      Best Headset I've EVER Used

      Posted
      mrssupernerd

      I've been through several headsets in the last couple years, and this definitely is the best one to date. It is so comfortable, and has amazing sound quality. I love that the mic is removable so I don't have to worry about my daughter or son messing it up if they ever need to use my computer and headset for something. It is perfectly cushioned around the ears and doesn't rest a ton of weight on the top of my head like other headsets have in the past (Turtle Beach, Sennheiser, Triton, and Logitech all have this issue for me). I feel like I can be fully immersed in whatever game I am playing, without worrying about the pain caused by my headset over time or not being able to hear what is going on around me well. I will definitely be buying Hyper X headsets for all my future gaming needs.

      Good value for a gaming headset

      Other headsets are very expensive and have some functions that can be annoying for the serious gamer. Cordless technology is now good for sound quality, but charging can be necessary at inopportune times. Other game headsets are trying to compete with the 'bling' factor; this on a headset seems only necessary if your going to be video capturing yourself while playing or at a game competition - e.g., don't need to compete with glowing keyboards and mice - if you like that thing on your desk great, but when its on your own head you can't see it :) Great sounding compared to similar sets, the build quality is solid. So far the durability appears that these should last me at least a year of heavy use.
