HyperX Cloud II Review

HyperX gaming headset review. Updated 2020 Amazon pricing, audio specs, and review - using scores built around ratings such as volume control, material quality, sound quality, battery life and noise cancellation. Are these HyperX headphones right for a PC gamer?

Should you buy the HyperX Cloud II?

PCGameBenchmark has reviewed pretty much every PC gaming headset available on Amazon. We've ignored some of the smaller and generic brands. We've filtered to only show the best gaming headsets wireless and wired available to buy right now - this HyperX gaming headset made our 2020 list.

Now's a great time to buy a new PC gaming headset. So many games are enhanced with great audio, there are always HyperX deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2020) and there's a massive range to chose from. High quality sound is super important when you’re playing and the speakers built into gaming monitors are pretty rubbish. If you’re looking to hear someone creep up on you in Fortnite or love the bass on Apex Legends, you need a proper immersive audio experience and the privacy that brings.

This red headset weighs 0.7 lb (0.32 kg).

PCGameBenchmark ratings are built up from the scores the Amazon community give the most important aspects of a PC gaming headset. We merge those scores to create a percentage rating.

On volume control this headset scores 3.7 stars out of five, while sound quality itself is rated at 4.5 stars. Specifically on whether the sound is good for gaming these HyperX headphones rate at 4.2.

Noise cancellation rates at 4.1 stars.

Build quality is important - you will want your headphones to last - these score a 4.6. Put all that together and we have our final percentage score.

Can you get this gaming headset for less than the RRP? Hell, yes! Look around for the best prices and any HyperX Cloud II Black Friday 2020 deals on Amazon.
