About the HyperX Cloud II Wireless
High-quality wireless gaming sound
High-quality wireless gaming sound
Going wireless gives you added flexibility, freeing your movement and letting you sit farther from your rig. The HyperX Cloud II Wireless headset provides the convenience of wireless with rich, detailed sound that helps your games come alive. The headset's closed-back, over-the-ear design keeps out distracting noise, helping you focus and immerse yourself in the action onscreen. These headphones look as sharp as they sound too, with striking red and black that really catch the eye.
If you're going to play for long sessions, the Cloud II 'phones are a great pick. They're lightweight and comfortable, with a soft memory foam headband and earpads that fit snugly and securely without weighing down your head or clamping down like a vice. The aluminum frame is flexible and durable, designed to withstand consistent use.
If you're planning on playing for a solid chunk of time, few things can spoil that like a dead battery. Fortunately, the Cloud II has an extensive battery life, hitting up to 30 hours. That's a lot of play time.
Keep your competitive edge
When I'm running around the Dark Zone in the The Division 2, the last thing I want is to be caught unawares while searching for sweet loot. The rat-a-tat of bullets around the corner can tip me off to the location of another team, letting me bypass them entirely or lie in wait myself.
The Cloud II headset delivers accurate sound directionality that pulls you into the game and improves your situational awareness. That makes it easy to place audio cues in the game world, keeping you on your toes (or fingers, I suppose). With the press of a button, you can also activate virtual 7.1 surround sound, giving you added depth and directionality. Those cues then become even easier to place, so you can pinpoint those footsteps faster.
The headset's detachable mic has built-in noise cancellation to help keep your voice chat clear. It also supports mic monitoring so you have an idea how you're feed is coming across to your teammates. When you hit the mute button, a LED indicator lights up on the mic, making it easy to remember when your team can (or can't) hear you. No more biting into that sandwich and drowning your teammates in the sounds of chewing by accident. It's a small comfort, but worth the extra consideration.
Strong wireless connection
A spotty connection to your headphones can be frustrating or put you at a disadvantage. The Cloud II comes with a convenient USB transmitter that plugs right into your video game console or computer. The transmitter provides a stable 2.4 GHz connection that keeps your sound lag-free within a range of 65 feet. That's more than enough wiggle room to stay connected with your teammates if you need to step aside between matches.
