Kingston is known for its high-class storage devices and people love them. All we’re really surprised after it released a great headset for gaming. The most recent device Hyperx Cloud 2 is a great looking device and we can say that the design is inspired by the previous model of Hyperx Cloud 2 drivers. This comfortable to wear and stylish looking design comes with 7.1 surround sound hardware so you can have better virtual sound experience. We can totally say that this headset sounds great and the comfort level that comes with it is unbelievable.
If you are a hardcore audiophile, you may not like the fact that the headsets can’t be customized and have a weak low end. Otherwise, the device has some great features at this price point and you will not regret buying it because it has all you need.
If we compare it to any other headset in this price range or even above it, we can say that it is one of the most comfortable ones to wear. We usually hear a problem that wearing a headset for long causes headache and discomfort but this one is lightweight and that makes it so easy to wear. Especially if you are a gamer and you spend a lot of time with your headphones, you need to get this one. You can easily wear these frequently for two days and not have a problem due to the 100-ounce weight. The CloudX 2 just snuggles your ear in a way that just feels right.
The performance of the Hyperx cloud 2 drivers is outstanding. We think it is an optimum companion for games like Titanfall 2 and Paris adventure in Assassin’s Creed Unity. All of the attacks from the enemies were really clear and the backfire from our side was impressive.
Music and Multimedia
The experience of listening to music on this headset is pretty amazing and totally enjoyable. All the vocals were crisp, no matter if it was a heavy guitar or soft pop tunes. We can say the bass was lacking in these headsets but the reason can be that they are not particularly for enjoying the music but to play games and that’s what they have concentrated on the most.
Hyperx cloud 2 Design
If we talk about the design, we can totally say that the HyperX Cloud 2 is a stylish gaming headset device and it has the best looks among all other options under $100. The headband of the headset is covered in leatherette and gives it a textured look that not just looks nice, but also makes it durable and protected. The metal forks on the sides that connect the earcups to the band look shiny and give it an expensive touch.
You can even adjust the metal forks to keep the ear cups in a comfortable position, they can even swivel so you get to use the headset just the way you want it. The sport slick of the cups and shiny exterior gives it a very attractive body.
Hyperx Cloud 2 vs Alpha
If we compare the HyperX Cloud 2 with Alpha, we can say that Hyperx is a great product in the market but it came to cover the lack that was set by the previous model called Cloud Revolver S. The Cloud Mav is actually a prototype of this device. HyperX Cloud 2 vs alpha doesn’t have a clear answer because both of the devices are pretty great in the work that they have to perform. We think it depends on your preference so just go for the one that you like better.
