In creating the successor to a popular budget gaming headset, HyperX had to know that the less they touched the basic design of the HyperX Cloud II, the better. By refusing to fix what isn’t broken, Hyper X has managed to create a wireless gaming headset that still offers stunning comfort and solid audio performance for only $50 more than the previous wired generation.
This proposition becomes even more interesting when you discover the excellent 30-hour battery life, as well as the constant and reliable wireless connection provided by the 2.4 GHz USB receiver. Sure, the virtual surround sound is more of a general directional audio tool than a precision one, but it’s good enough for the everyday gamer who doesn’t need to hone his or her esport-level reaction skills. Additionally, the sparse suite of audio controls available via the Ngenuity software falls a bit short by 2021 standards.
However, it’s easy to forgive some of these flaws that aren’t likely to affect the casual gamer when you recognize the overall excellent quality, lasting comfort, and reliability of this affordable wireless headset.
