    Great Headset, but VERY IMPORTANT NOTE
    First of all, this headset is the best I’ve ever owned, by far. The sound is high quality, the microphone works perfectly and comes with a free windscreen, and it has very comfortable ear pads with an extra set of velvet ones included. BUT, the microphone WILL BE DEFECTIVE upon arrival, and you need to do something to solve the problem and restore the headset to functionality. By default, the headset comes with firmware version 0030, which contains a microphone-breaking glitch. To use the microphone on this headset, you will need to go to the official HyperX download page for the Cloud II headset and get the latest version, 0010. I’m not sure why the number is lower, or why they don’t ship them with this preinstalled, but this was an IMMEDIATE solution for me, so make sure to keep that in mind before buying these.

    HyperX just earned a new life customer
    I bought these as a replacement for my old Logitech G430s. They were getting old and they were hurting my head to wear for longer than 2 hours at a time. These Cloud IIs have been amazing so far. They are super comfortable and the sound quality is great for what I use it for (gaming, discord chat with friends).Pros:- Comfortable foam sits well on my head- Can wear for extended periods without headache- Sound is clear and perfect for hearing 360 degrees- Mic is very well made and crystal clear (from what my friends tell me) and it WILL NOT pick up stray sounds in the room. If I try to talk through it from further than foot or 2 away, it will not pick up.- Maybe a con, but I cannot hear much else with these on. They immerse me fully in whatever I’m doing, sometimes to the frustration of my SO.Cons:- Cable sometimes gets in my way when I’m trying to move my desk chair around- Nothing else really that I’ve had happen so far.I will be buying another set of these if/when these ever give out on me. Best headset I’ve ever had.

    TL;DR version: Great product, spectacular customer service makes the price an absolute value.
    This review has broken my long standing “I never write reviews” stance. I purchased this headset in June of 2016. The performance has been great, sound, microphone, my personal favorite is the stitched covering..a nice touch. Nevertheless, this review is about the customer service I received when the USB connector broke. First, I tried the online customer service option. The representative (who’s name I did not get) was quick to confirm that this product has a 2 year warranty and my issue was in fact covered. Sweet! I typically get screwed over in these situations, so I was not expecting that. They had to transfer my online chat to tech support to create a case for me, OK no problem…But, that wasn’t a positive experience as I kept getting kicked lower in the queue. So, I decided to just call customer service…on Friday…after 5..the week before Thanksgiving. (They are only Monday-Friday until 6pm) I get Eric and I tell him the whole story. First thing this guy says? “Don’t worry, we’ll take care of you.” Eric asks for some personal info and says that I’ll receive another email in the next couple of business days. I had a couple of questions and he was really cool about answering them. The following Monday I have a couple of thoroughly explained e-mails from Stephanie. One is a pre-paid return label and the replacement was being sent out separately. I returned the damaged part on Wednesday, my replacement arrived on Black Friday. The ABSOLUTE best customer service I have received for any product! So, if the price tag is an issue for you, consider the warranty and the great replacement process.

    Great and comfortable headset for extended use
    I’m a computer professional by trade (programmer) who plays video games and I wear a headset all day every day – I listen to music to cancel out the noise of the outside world. This headset is extremely comfortable for extended use. I am not necessarily an audiophile – I love good sound, but I don’t believe I have an ultra-discriminating ear – so I can say the sound quality itself is great, but that doesn’t necessarily mean as much as someone who invests the time in full-on comparisons.One (and only) con so far is that the wire easily gets twisted, as others have said in their reviews, but this is minor.Update 08/18 – so after some time I’ve found a VERY annoying quirk of this headset (enough to drop it by two stars). Because of that twisting (or perhaps it’s unrelated, not sure) the cord has become somewhat frayed. It doesn’t look that bad but now when I shift in my chair the wrong way, the headset crackles and cuts out and I need to find the right placement of the cord to get it to come back on. It happens more and more frequently and has become such a source of frustration that I am considering getting a different headset or using an older one even though I still love the sound and noise cancellation of these headphones.UPDATE 2: So I was scrolling past old reviews and realized I hadn’t updated this one. Well, the issue was the (non-detachable) cord – so unfortunately, contrary to some of the comments, I can’t just replace it without re-splicing. However, HyperX DID honor their warranty without any hassle whatsoever. It’s been awhile since this happened, but I believe I had to pay for return shipping, then they basically shipped me a completely new headset. As of 11/11/2019 it’s still going strong (this one with no fraying, though it does twist up still) and I’m giving it back a star for their stellar returns and customer service!
