"Best 'Gaming' Headset I've ever used."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The sound is amazing and the set up is incredibly easy. Not the motion the price. I would say these are better than most 300–400$ sets that I've used. GET THEM NOW!

This is the best headset I have owned. Playing for extended periods doesn't get uncomfortable, the build quality is great. Would recommend them to anyone looking for gaming headset at this price range.

I'd highly recommend this for the price, far better than any other headsets in this price range and even more expensive ones

"Excellent build quality"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This headset comes packed like royalty, it feels like you just paid $400 + for it, and it's built like it too. Super solid build quality, really sturdy aluminium and is super comfortable. But the sound is rather flat for a gaming headset, not that much bass to it. Sound is clear, however. Microphone is also extremely clear and doesn't get distorted when you speak loudly like other microphones.

Actually a really really nice headset. 10/10 would bang again. Was considering spending a couple hundy but this had a lot of nice reviews which I decided to trust. I'd recommend you buy these too – they're v v good.

"Terrible for PS4"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Headset is advertised to be for PS4, however it is not optimized for PS4 at all. The USB controller doesn't work on PS4, you are able to use the controller for 15 seconds max when plugging it then it stops working. So if you decide you want mute your mic or change any settings such as the 7.1 surround or your game volume you have to unplug the headset from the PS4 then plug it back to be able to change it, then 15 seconds later it locks again so you will have to plug and unplug to change. Poor optimization would not recommend for PS4.

"Comfortable Cloud 2"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

These just feel light and durable, the cords are a great length and they sound awesome. I am a bit worried about the sound card getting warm after couple hours of intensive gaming.

"Awesome sound and very comfortable"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Sound is awesome, and is super light and comfortable, the leather cups are a nice touch and I can wear them for hours without fatigue. Only downside is mic quality, can sound a little tinny and crackly at times, still acceptable quality though. A brilliant overall package and good value for money.

Really pleased with this headset especially for the price. Great 7.1 sound via the external USB sound card, plus mic quality is really good for Skype etc.

"Really Good"

Amazing sound and extremely comfortable. Only problem is I have to put the mic very close to my mouth in order for it to pick up my voice clearly.

Excellent headset, great sound quality and very comfortable to wear. It doesn't get 5 stars because microphone volume levels are nonadjustable.

"Awful bass"

Super comfortable, but everything sounds ‘tinny’, don't know if I just have a faulty pair, i'm waiting on tech support from kingston to reply, but either way, big disappointment and waste of $140

"Fantastic headphones for its price"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The sound quality is very impressive for the price. It works with pretty much any device i own as well which is a plus. The only thing i don't like with it is the cable seems to want to twist on its own which makes me worried that it will eventually lose sound in one ear.

"Reliable"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Without a doubt one of the most comfortable feeling headsets ive owned. Sturdy build and overall a good headset for both sound and mic.

"Top notch gaming headset."
4 stars"

Bought this headset from PB Tech for a steal of a price. It is very good, almost as good as my Astro A40s.

"Outshined by its predecessor"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I already have two of the HyperX Cloud headsets, and unfortunately that model was no longer available when I wanted a third. No matter – it's the same thing, right- Well, it looks the same, but comes with a USB sound card that initially gave me some trouble. Personally, I'd have preferred the older style that comes with an extension cable/splitter cable that I can plug directly into my motherboard. Now it works consistently, but the USB device doesn't remember its 7.1 setting, which is a minor annoyance. The biggest issue is sound quality – every time I jump into a game with my older headset, people comment on how clear my microphone is. I have yet to perform a full audio quality test of this, but it's a pretty disconcerting to get feedback like that. I suspect that the audio chip on this thing is just crap.

"Excellent Quality and Sound"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have owned and used many higher priced headsets and I must say I have been blown away with just how good this headset is. Since getting these I have not even considered trying something new which is very rare for me!

"Great build quality"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Really nice unboxing. Feels premium. The cans are solid with brushed aluminium that doesn't scratch easy. Comes with nice carrying bag. The sound quality is perfect for games. Plenty of detail and bass. They fit nice and snug on your head and will remain comfortable for several hours. They do cancel a lot of noise since they fit snug around your ears so if thats your thing, great! If not id suggest getting open back headphones instead. Only complaint is the mic isn't that great but I wasn't expecting it to be great. If you're looking for a headset with good mic quality there are other options out there that are better then the mic on the cloud 2's

"What's not to love-"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The headset is extremely comfortable, the headband doesn't give you any fatigue and the ear-cups are soft and big enough so they aren't squashing your ears. Sound and microphone quality is awesome and I find it one of the better quality sounding headsets on the market.

Not an overly huge headset either so you won't look strange or like you're wearing a helmet when rocking these.

"Awesome"

Done the firmware update on my Windows 10 pc and now it is fully compatible with my PS4 pro, headset is awesome slight bit of audio leakage but all in all I got the perfect pair at the right price

I was very impressed woke up and my dad handed it to me only ordered 20 hours before and saved like 7.90 on delivery through prime ape good quality packaging and audio

"The best a man can get"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have four children, and every time I played a game they would come in and cloud my gaming area. I wanted headphones and some of the cheaper sets found elsewhere were quite ordinary. I then decided to bite the bullet and buy the HyperX Cloud II Pro Gaming Headset from MightyApe.

The sound quality in these are fantastic, games like Fortnite you can hear clearly which side your enemy is coming from, have also used it for music by removing the microphone and can't complain. Would highly recommend these 10/10

"Best Headphones I've ever owned"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It hasn't even been a day and I'm already in love with this headset! The sound direction is insanely accurate. I used to have a Turtle Beach Stealth Force 700P which cost $300 when I got it, but the Cloud II is leagues above it. Definitely worth the purchase

"Great for price!"

"Love it"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Partner loves it he was surprised about how well the packaging was, he loves it and easy to use and store away best headset he has seen and used by far. Highly recommend the hyper x headsets, no need for the USB part you can easily plug the headset into your controller and your all set to use it love the look and style on it

"Great Headset for the money!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I've been using this for a few days now, and so far it has worked very well. The sound is good for a headset and I'm told my voice via the microphone is excellent and clear. Build quality seems reasonable; it came with a bag and a second set of ear cushions (one felt like the other more leather-like). Comfort levels are satisfactory, and I can wear them for hours without issue. I like the fact that these are a four-pole 2.5mm as they work with my android phone as well and even the house DECT phones. No real issues; just plug in and go!

"Awesome in general!"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Light weight and good quality headphones although my only concern is the microphone isn't the best quality. Other than that awesome.

"High quality headset at an affordable price."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you want an affordable, high quality gaming headset that works across a wide range of devices, the Kingston HyperX Cloud II absolutely fit the bill. The stereo sound is powerful and detailed, with the 53mm drivers providing plenty of punch in the low-end, while also being sprightly at the high-end. The headset is most suited to video games, but it’s impressive in movies and music too.

"Super Comfy, Sounds great"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Extremely comfortable and sounds really good for the price point. Top notch

"Amazing sound quality. Terrible mic quality."
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I'll start this by saying that the microphone is on par with a $5 Chinese microphones I bought on Aliexpress. I'm audible, but barely. It picks up even the slightest of breaths from a mile away, yet I constantly get told that I'm too quiet, even with the mic boosted to max.

The audio quality of these is a strong 7/10. Not the greatest, but still pretty good. The audio controller is good, but could be better. If it had media controls like most headphones do these days, I'd be incredibly happy.

Overall, I'd rate this whole thing as a 5/10. I've had a lot of issues with it, and ultimately don't know if I'll ever recommend this. The build quality is fantastic, and it's very sturdy, but I feel I can get better for a similar price.

Also, the mic has had a LOT of problems where it sounded like it wasn't properly connected, which has happened a few times for no reason. (It's rare, though. But still doesn't make me confident in the quality)

"Very nice"
5 stars"

Had a pair from Mighty Ape for over a year, great headphones would recommend to anyone.

"quite decent"

i have been using these for around 3 months. before these i was using sennheiser hd202, these are not only comfortable but quite good quality in the sound performance. the build quality is also good. i recommend them for the $150-ish price range.

"Great All-Round Headset"
5 stars"

Apart from the amazing comfort of this headset – which is so good its almost rude – what I like most is the long boom-arm which puts the mic right by my mouth so people can always hear me nice & clearly – maybe I have a big head but mic-at-mouth is rare so really I appreciate it – its great for games on the PS4 but I also use it for longer calls on the cell phone

"Such awesome value!"
5 stars"

Have used these for the past 18 months and I haven't been disappointed. Not once. Extremely comfortable for hours on end, excellent sound quality for games and bass for music/movies, mic is clear, no fraying of anything on the set whatsoever even with daily use, very well built. Highly recommended if you're looking for a value for money offering.

Son loves these, very comfy to wear.

"Mine Broke"

I’ve had mine for about 7 months and I cannot hear out of the left ear, pretty frustrating.

"Outstanding Value, sound great, and super comfortable!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I brought these mainly for music at work, and boy do they deliver! Great sound, tons of bass, and all without sounding ‘muddy’. The virtual 7.1 surround works great in games (and for listening to Flac quality Nine Inch Nails!) and the headset is comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time. Have only used the mic a little on Xbox live, but it does perfectly fine and the other parties never misheard me. You would be hard pressed to find a better headset in this price range – if you don't believe me, check out some of the YouTube reviews before purchase! PS – Made my workmates jealous too, so that is a bonus!

I am just blown away by the sound quality, but after wearing it for an hour, it is starting to hurt my head and my ears. Despite that, I am still going to recommend this headset to my friends.
