Excellent bang for buck
Ive had a set of Cloud IIs for 3 years. Great quality sound for the price easily comparable with headsets in the $200+ range. Comfortable to wear during long gaming sessions. Easy to use USB plug and play DAC. Can also be used without the DAC on Consoles and Android phones with mini jack ports.
Easily the best I've ever used
I've had 2 pairs of this headset so far and both of them have performed spectacularly. I'm the kind of person that likes to play video games for extended periods and it's comfortable all the way through.
The headphones are gentle and even after 8+ hours of gameplay, I'm still comfortable wearing them. The ear cups fit comfortably around my ears rather than on them.
I've never had any issues with audio quality or with microphone clarity / people not being able to hear me. The maximum volume is louder than you'd ever need it to be for standard us...

Excellent for all uses
I received a pair from a friend who wasn't using them. Really comfortable, have only used it on two occasions to game but from a music standpoint, the depth and level of sound you get truly replicates a full symphony.
Great quality for the price.
Great headphones, I purchased for a reasonable $100, sound is excellent and had a 3.5mm Jack that I was able to use with my phone. Mic gave good back ground sound cancellation.
A masterpiece for audiophiles.
This headset has amazing highs and lows for audiophiles who love listening to music, ASMR or stormy sounds. As far as gaming goes the 7.1 is very accurate and allows you to play at that next level where you can pin point exactly where someone is. The headphones themselves are extremely comfortable, the padding is well implemented and the controls on the headset are intuitive and simple. Halfway down the cable you can enable/disable 7.1, adjust mic sensitivity and your volume. The headset easily unplugs from its attached box for a regular headphone jack if you wanna take your headset on the go. This is by far the best headset i've ever had the pleasure of owning.
wow, just wow..
when i ordered this product i expected a run of the mill headphone with no real outstanding features.. ok so lets start at the headphones and work our way down.. the head rest of the head phones is VERY comfortable, it has a padded foam (which sounds underwhelming but its made really well), the pressure it puts on the side of your head is very little but it wont slip, they've perfected that you can adjust the headphones to sit higher or lower of your face.. the microphone can be detached easily (although it would be nice to have a connector po...int on both sides for the microphone) the microphone is good quality easy to adjust and customize.. now here we get to a cool little feature about half way down the cable there's an adjuster.. you can disconnect the headphones which has a normal audio jack (which is cool if you want to list to music on the run with other devices) where this headphone jack normally is connected (for pc use) you can turn on or off 7.1 surround, which is great to have for some games, you can also adjust the speaker volume or the microphone volume(without having to alt tab, which i love!) and you can also mute your microphone, the back of this little black box has a clip so you can have it attached to your person to convince.. all in all Totally worth the money, i would highly recommend to any serious gamer's out there... i could wear this headset for hours with no problem.. and reasonably priced too !
Highest quality without the price
High quality, low price. Perfect for online gaming and entertainment purposes. Very well produced. Good packaging. Well thought out product. Used for 2 years nearly and is still in perfect working order after being dropped a few times
Purchased for A$120.00.
Purchased in May from JB HiFi
the games rep was extremely knowledgeable and allowed me to try all the different headsets to see which ones would be most comfortable. As a current online student these stay on my head for hours listening to lectures and are still comfortable at the end of the day. When i then want to relax i can pull the attached microphone out and watch some videos. The sound quality is fairly good but i wouldnt rate them against pure audio headsets. For the money they are a reall good fit for my needs.

broke within few months
Used it for a few months before one side of the headphones stopped working completely. The mic also stopped working and is very prone to build up dust. Build quality is good thought and the price is worth, if it doesn't break within few months of using like mine did.

TLDR;Great Audio, Crap Mic
I got this a few months ago as a recommendation from my cousin. It serves as a backup to my Razer Kraken headset which although was still doing fine after a few years, was starting to hurt my ears and the fabric was wearing out.
After placing this bad boy on and damn I felt comfortable, the audio is lit.
But then comes to the mic, when i tested it out on max it decides to pick up every single small sound but other than my voice. My breathing sounds like the winds from monsoons but somehow my voice sounds like I'm talking 100 miles away from the...

This product is one of the worst headsets you can buy
-USB dongle is designed to break so that you can buy new ones
-USB dongle continuously tangles up and has disconnects most of the time
-Don't buy this, it's not worth it
His product is absolute dog crap
These headphones were crap since the day I got them. Out of the box there was mic problems and didn’t work for a week. Finally got it working. 2 weeks later, the crap mic randomly stopped working and has ruined my whole day trying to fix it. I would not suggest getting these headphones, just a bad idea and a waste of 200$

Audio quality is crisp, mic quality is pretty good too. They block out A LOT of background noise, especially voices, fans etc but not so much bass sounds if someone is playing music.
I wear these about 8 hours a day, and I feel no discomfort at all. They're super comfy, perfect for long duration of use. I also have no signs of wear and tear either, after using these for 6+ months,
Only possible downside, is that they're not super heavy on the bass, so if you're into extreme bass levels look elsewhere, but for regular people listening to music or gaming etc they're PERFECT.
Overall, easily 8/10 the best headphones I've ever bought.
Excellent gaming headset but not without a few issues.
All in all, this is probably the best gaming headset you can buy and I definitely recommend it despite a few flaws. Kingston support was very helpful when I contacted them, doing their best to solve my issues with my phone compatibility and the static background noise found when using the USB sound card. For those on a tighter budget I recommend getting the Cloud I as it's basically the same headset just without the USB sound card. Edit: Just updating this review, Kingston actually replaced the sound card and it no longer buzzes at any volume level, thumbs up!
Overall, it's a great headset, reasonably priced, well made and well designed. Its sound quality is very clear. It's great to watch movies, listen to music, or play games. This is a great headset, and it would be perfect if the material could be updated and updated. Because earphones can be a bit uncomfortable if you wear them too long.
Sturdy, excellent sound, and decent mic
I honestly have no complaints about this headset. The sound quality is superb! It is in fact as good as a similarly priced pair of headphones. The detachable mic is very useful, and actually means that I sometimes use this headset as headphones. I have never had any complaints about the mic from listener's on the other end too! I definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a decent headset, that will last them for a long time.
I use these headphones for gaming and they are perfect. These headphones are not designed for using with physical activitys they are designed for mostly gaming purposes and media. The sound is perfect for these headphones specs, especially with the usb dongle you receive with it that has a surround feature.
Great headphones for gaming.
I use these headphones for gaming and occasionally watching shows. No, these headphones are designed mainly for gaming. The sound volume is amazing and especially with the usb dongle it makes the sound good as and even comes with surround sound which makes the sound 3 times better which is good
Kingston HyperX Cloud II 7.1 Channel
These Headphones are very high quality for the price. Bass is excellent with a good top frequency. 15hz to 25k . (most humans only hear 20hz to 18k ) so it surpasses what is hearable, but 15 hz is feelable and 25k the doggies will enjoy lol. These headsets actually do put out what they claim. The metal parts are well chosen as it avoids breaking with large heads and frequent use. They are very comfortable over long periods of use. (can get a bit uncomfortable if you wear glasses) I Do not like the cord as it's prone to wear too quick so need...s careful looking after by avoiding twists which happen frequently. the Mic is not HiFi broadcast quality but designed for in game speech with low feedback, great also on talk channels. Models with the USB are preferred as can use it with or without the inline sound converter which also lets you adjust Mic and Headphone volume, switch in a 7-2 virtual type sound (not real but effective), A mic mute button. The Mic goose neck also tends to go tatty over time. Twists in the cord go hard and cannot be straightened without risk of breakage if left twisted over time.
