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 $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.
Not bad, but not worth the price
The headset was one of the best selling so-called "gaming" headsets over the last few years. For the price of $120-140 it is definitely not worth it. For that, you could purchase a much better pair of headphones, such as an audio-technica, and purchase a separate microphone (either desktop mic or mod mic) and enjoy a much better audio experience.
-Great noise cancellation (particularly with the leather ear pads)
-Comfortable and can be worn for long stretches at a time without any issues
-Detachable microphone, but personally I pre...
Amazing for gaming.
As a person that games alot, this headset is perfect!
You can just about hear every footstep and know exactly where your enemy is in competitive games such as Counter Strike, Fortnite and Overwatch.
It's the best value for your buck in my opinion, it feels great, comes with loads of additional accessories such as different material for the ear muffs, carry on bag and so forth.
I've owned these for more than a year now and I have never had a problem with it!
The sound as great and crisp as it was when I first purchased this.
Amazing set of headphones
Headphones with great sounding quality. Love the fact that there is a sound driver card via USB with this headphone, especially since my computer does not have one. Build is sturdy with a leather head band. They also offer 2 styles of ear cups which is great to suit all different ear types.
Comfortable but far from perfect
These headphones feel great, look good and have a great rope like cord that doesnt get tangled up but suffers some audio issues.
Unfortunately the sound card is located midway along the cord and is prone to damage from computer chairs and feet as it is usually on the ground. It also unplugs at this point easily leading to audio loss. Even when brand new audio through the usb connection is often poor and the sound driver can get quite hot.
Great headphones but over time can break
These headphones provide a clear, crisp sound with enough bass to enjoy movies, games or anything else. However over time the headphone cord may break as mine has where it needs to be moved around to get sound in both ear muffs. Despite this, they are a quality headphone for the price and are great for PC gaming.
Solid all round headset.
A very well balanced headset for telephony, music and gaming. The bass response is maybe a touch too full, but it compensates well for the cheap sound cards that are present in most modern laptops. Microphone quality is excellent and the detachable mic is handy if you want to use them as headphones.
Best gaming headset I've used
I have played a lot of high level counterstrike. And had previously used audio technica ath-ad700, but the hyperx where so much better for gaming. They allowed me to hear footsteps from a mile away with no custom settings required. They are also very comfy & find the size a lot better than the ath-ad700 as they are closed ear. The leather ear pads are comfy for long gaming sessions.
