Virtual 7.1 surround sound in HyperX Cloud II is only supported when used on a computer via the USB sound card. The Cloud II is officially compatible with the PS4 via the 3.5mm audio jack that is connected to the controller. It can be used with the USB sound card, but since the PS4 does not have the drivers to run the sound card, only passing sound is supported. The 7.1, volume and microphone buttons in HyperX Cloud II are disabled for this use. Only the microphone mute switch on the side works.
HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset – They are extremely comfortable: they fit well but are not snug. If you wear glasses, you will hardly notice the temple pieces, if at all. The leather cushions are soft and fit well in your ears, including insulation from ambient noise in your home. There is also an additional set of foam pads to replace the leather pads. You can install them if you want something even smoother.
I have a slightly bigger head. I’m wearing a 7-1 / 4 hat size and with a baseball cap I’m usually on the last or two holes. Phones don’t fall off when you tilt your head forward or forward. In general, they feel very light in your head, and after three or four hours of play, your ears are not all sweaty and hot. You breathe well so that no moisture accumulates. I live in Hawaii, so I’m a good test case for that.
The material used is high quality material. Anodized steel, leather ear pads and headband, and a hard plastic shell make up the headphones. The fixing points on the headphones are firm. The only thing the design could use for is wiring to the headphones. Although it is firmly connected, it is possible to accidentally snag one of the cables and possibly damage the connection. Of course, this would be a distant fact. My wife also likes it because the oval shape of the cups offers room for her earrings. For you with big ears or earrings, especially those big suckers, you may not be lucky.
GOOD QUALITY SOUND
They sound great and with isolation you can hear everything the soundtrack has to offer. There is a simple instruction that you must follow to set up a PC. Go to the control panel of your sound application and configure 7.1, which is included in the delivery. When it comes to “virtual sound”, I don’t see any difference between what stereo offers. As I play I can hear things to the left, to the right and in the middle. For music, the stereo placement is good, and music with a good mix places the instruments where they can be on stage. Classical music: the violins are, of course, on the left and the brass on the right.
This company offers a 2 year warranty. This shows that the company is quite convinced of the quality. If there are a lot of problems with this product, you will lose money on a two year warranty.
The packaging is top-notch, beautiful, well-designed, and another indication that you’re getting something pretty good. The box is built like Fort Knox and all Doo-Dads are packed in foam. You get a carry bag and adapters for PC, Mac, and game consoles including controllers.
The cable is covered with cloth and prevents tangles. I used to wear headphones and these things got tangled up and fell out of my ears or came loose. The cable is long enough and the volume control for the microphone and headphones is practical. The online control also has a microphone mute switch.
