Hyperx cloud ii gaming headset


The original HyperX Cloud II reigned supreme as the best gaming headphối for around two-and-a-half years before another set of cans took the crown, making the HyperX Cloud II Wireless something of an inevitability. And sure enough, cutting the cord doesn’t sacrifice the solid build unique and exceptional soundscape its predecessor is known for, but it does create a few sore spots that prsự kiện it from having the same impact.

‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ is the motto lớn here, as you’d be forgiven for confusing the two if they sat side by side. The HyperX Cloud II Wireless features the same aluminium body toàn thân coated in matte blachồng with a red frame & logos on the side, but there are a handful of physical differences if you peer in closer.

Moving past the minor stuff, like the logo now being indented across the top rather than stitched in, the biggest changes are on the ear cups. In lieu of a wired DAC that originally provided inline controls, the right can has a volume wheel và the left lets you power the headset on, plug in your detachable microphone, & mute it. Better yet, there’s a mute LED near the receiver that lights up red to lớn prsự kiện you from accidentally talking into the void. We’ve all done it.

Cumbersome cables are replaced with a 2.4GHz USB Type A dongle, which is about as plug-and-play as you can get. You don’t even need to lớn download HyperX’s Ngenuity software khổng lồ get things working.

In fact, if you’re not tempted by the options khổng lồ enable mic monitoring, adjust the period of inactivity, or flick between 7.1 surround sound và stereo – the latter of which you can bởi in Windows 10 directly – then the application is a digital paperweight while it’s in beta. The install might be justified if you have other HyperX products that can take advantage of it, but until you can fiddle about with equalisers, change the game/chat balance, or fine-tune the microphone, Ngenuity is sorely lacking with such a high-end headset.
