    Better than Mainstream Gaming Headsets

    Due to the quality of certain (and apparently cannot be named here) mainstream headsets declining, I decided to look for a headset that delivered the real power to match the price. My recently purchased but previous headset was stolen, and I was forced to shop again. I told myself this time I wasn't going to give in to the mainstream gaming market and I was going to look for a good quality, decent headset specifically for gaming. I took the approach of researching names you dont hear as often as razer/astro/logitech. The reason for this is, like for monitors you usually get ASUS or something, right? Well, after research, I found Benq has AMAZING and will be getting one soon. I found the HyperX Cloud I, Cloud II, and Cloud Revolver and started doing more research to find that they are superior, pro gaming adequate headsets. Maybe I just don't read often, but how often do you hear about HyperX? Anyways. It became a toss up of whether I should get the Cloud II or the Cloud Revolver. The main differences other than obvious aesthetics are the fact that the Cloud II has 53mm drivers and surround sound, and then Cloud Revolver has 50mm drivers and no surround sound unless you get the Cloud Revolver S version. The Cloud Revolver are also $20~ more dollars. I read many reviews about both and everyone said that the clarity and depth to the Revolvers were far superior, despite not having surround sound. My final decision was to go with the Revolvers because in all reality.. I don't even really need surround sound unless being pro is in the picture or if I am watching movies. I can say that this was one of the best purchases I have made regarding headsets. The first impression was they are super light. After playing with them on for a few hours, I sometimes actually forgot they were even on my head. The sound quality is by far the best quality I have heard from a gaming headset out of at least 4 different brands I have tried. And it's not that I have bad ears. I play multiple instruments well and have experience with audio and music. The drivers for the headset are 50mm and smaller than the Cloud II, but they're angled differently. The effect it gave me was that I felt like I was listening to crisp, clear sounds from within a room around me. This is what they mean by a professional grade sound stage. Unlike like the Razer/Astros, where I feel like sound is being blasted into my hear from something being pressed against my eardrum even if they were full sized and over the ear headsets. If the headphones are off, you can easily hear what someone is listening to at a low level. But when they're on, you can't hear anything unless you raise it well above a level that would be uncomfortable for most. And, to boot, the mic is noise cancelling. When playing games, despite not being surround sound, the depth and clarity of the sound made up for it and almost sounded surround to me. With the angle of the drivers, you can hear footsteps and shots in games not only from a greater distance away but also can gauge better how far away they are. For normal music listening, all levels of sound are crisp and clear. The only thing I would add to this would be more bass for certain types of beats. The only con I can see is the fact that the metal bar on the top of the headset that is used to help take pressure off your head can carry a lot of vibration to the ears if hit. But.. how often will someone do that? Overall, I would give these headsets a 4.6 out of 5 and would recommend them over Razer, Logitech, Astro, and Turtle Beach.

    Extraordinary comfort and audio quality.

    Pros: Excellent audio quality for the price, extremely comfortable, feels quality, metal headband, braided cord, removable mic, price. Cons: Large, closed back. I purchased these alongside a pair of Razer Kraken's for side by side comparisons after reading many reviews online. These are quite simply the best sounding gaming headphones I've ever heard. Audio is crisp, clear, and enjoyable. The sound stage isn't as wide as open backed headphones but well above average for closed back ones. Highs are clear and non-harsh, mid's are present and smooth, and the lows are punchy without distortion or boom. I was hearing things in my games I hadn't heard before with my Creative Labs G500 desktop speakers. The mic works very well and I've had no complaints from team mates about clarity. The fact that it's removable is a bonus. Comfort wise these are top notch! Easily the most comfortable headphones I've worn in quiet some time. The ear cups are generous and comfortable, allowing them to completely envelop your ears without pinning them to your head. The metal headband keeps them clamped securely but not tightly to your head allowing for hours of fatigue free wearing. After 2 1/2 hours of use I'd almost forgotten I was wearing them. Bottom line, these are likely the best bang for the buck you can find for a pair of gaming headphones. I highly recommend them!

    The Best.

    The first thing you notice, much like an apple product, is the packaging. Kingston made a quality product, the highest ive ever experienced, and they know it. Its so rare to find any metal in the construction of headsets, but all of the potential stress points on this are FULL METAL! This will not wear out and break on me physically like THREE Logitechs have. The other thing that I was wishing for was a LOUD headset. That was one of my biggest complaints of my past headsets. I'd pretty much accepted that gaming headsets just dont get loud. Some of us really feel more immersed if the gunshots and explosions have the most impact they can. I've always had the headsets at 100 with disappointment. Right now I'm listening to music and I cant crank past 90 without being uncomfortable! BTW Im the guy who has a 12" Subwoofer in his car being obnoxious : D The final thing that struck me immediately was the Clarity and Directional Awareness! OMG I was playing Killing Floor 2 and had a clot (one of the monsters) grab me from the rear-left and yell at me like usual. I actually had a jump scare because I was not expecting how realistic it sounded! I felt like it was ACTUALLY behind me! (and to the left slightly!) PS I have also tried Turtle Beach z70s I believe, because they had 50mm drivers (I wanted more volume) and they were louder, but so muddy. Oh and ever been annoyed by the adjustments for head size always not quite being right so u gotta fix it every time? The Cloud Revolver basically "stretches" to accommodate you then goes back when you take them off. Youll see what I mean.

    Hyper X is the best!

    Was debating on these vs the Hyper X Revolver S but I decided to get these. Mainly because they were cheaper and since Christmas is around the corner, I figured I'd let my GF get me the Revolver S lol. Will update the review on the differences once that happens. I will say that I'm very pleased with these headsets. The mic quality is decent. Sound is excellent. Easily track your opponents with these in FPS games. I love how you can pop these on your head without having to adjust the band. The only downfall is that they can be loose, as in the headsets moving up(forward) or down your head. Not designed to have on while laying down. Not many people do this so I don't see this as a problem but thought I'd mention it. If these are a bit above your price range, try the Hyper X Cloud Alphas. Because they are newer than the Cloud 2's, they don't have many reviews on best buy's website. The Alphas are an upgrade to the cloud 2's. If you liked the cloud 2's and wanted something around the $100 range, I'd totally recommend the Alphas. They are great as well! Make sure to get best buys 2 year warranty so that in case anything goes wrong, you will have some awesome headsets for at least 2 years!

    Perfect Audio Quality and Very Comfortable

    Posted
    Milian

    Straight off the bat, the audio driver box included enhances the audio range. The quality of this headset is very evenly spread out bass and vocals; However, it is more vocals when at max which is great for communications. The mic from what I have heard people tell me is very clear and no noise unless background is very loud. The ear cups are sit on the ears fully and are very large which is good for adjusting where you want them to sit. The detachable mic is also very great! Design: 9/10 For the price it would actually would be great to remove the audio cord detachable like other high end headsets. Price: 8/10 Including tax it is a bit pricey, but are great for the price regardless. Final Score: 8.7/10

    I got this headset for Christmas from my husband So I didn't read any reviews or anything. It looks great the style is awesome. But It was too big for my head. It was heavy and not comfortable especially when wearing glasses. (Which 80% of people do). Here is a few things wrong with the headset: Cons: -When ever you hit the top on accident or anything it would make an echo sound of metal and ring. -The mic at top kept coming out a bit. -The cord was long and would come unplugged if bummed and would make it not respond for the microphone even just a little unplugged. It was hard to mute if I needed to mute because I don't like push to talk. -People kept saying there was bad feedback in the background and the mic didn't sound good while in any team communication. -No surround Sound in the headset. The sound wasn't bad but I realized while playing CS:GO that I couldn't hear footsteps as well. In the end I returned it after about 2 weeks. It wasn't a great headset. I know other products were good but this one was not. I have not gotten a different headset yet. I just kept my old one. Pros: -It was stylish for people who care about how it looks. -It had good sound for music. -If someone had a big head, It would fit. ;) I wouldn't Recommend for Gaming headset, but for audio music it would be good.

    A High Quality Headset for a Reasonable Price!

    I always do extensive research before I spend money on electronics, especially in regards to gaming. I wanted to get a high quality headset that would give me premium sound quality. I mainly play online shooters and RPGs where every bit of sound counts. Upon opening the box I was surprised by the build of the headset. It is pure metal cushioned by foam and padding. IT IS THE BEST QUALITY HEADSET I HAVE EVER FELT. What company uses metal, plastic, and foam for the headsets? NOBODY! It was shocking and I love it. It doesn't feel cheap like Turtle Beaches I have had in the past. As far as setup goes, it is simple. The cord from the headset plugs straight into the 3.5mm jack on the controller of your Xbox or PS4. It comes with a PC adapter if you need it. The sound quality is top notch as well for the price. It blows Turtle Beach out of the water in sound quality and build! I will be a HyperX user for a long time! If this headset is in your price range, buy it. You will not regret it. P.S. I had the Turtle Beach 420 wireless before this and they were terrible. The squished my head and they felt cheap. Pure plastic with terrible sound. I hope this helps everyone!

    Great gaming headset for larger head

    I spent countless hours reading reviews on just about every gaming headset on the market. Important things to me were fit, function and durability at a reasonable price. I did not want to go above $100, but went a little over for this headset, since a few reviews indicated it was larger than most. I wear a 7 3/4 hat size and most headsets i tried on were uncomfortably small.. This one fits me great. It is comfortable even after hours of FPS gaming action. The cord is high quality braid, the construction of the frame is metal, and the cord is long...with an in line mute switch that can clip to your clothing within easy reach. The microphone is removable and the boom is flexible for adjustment. The sound quality is excellent and friends tell me my voice comes through very clear when gaming. I have been using this headset regularly for a few weeks now, and I am very pleased with my purchase.
