1. The detachable mic feature. I thought this would be a WONDERFUL feature, since i hate the mic being there when I'm not using it! The 1st time I detached it and re-attached it, I noticed it was already looser!!! <-- this is terrible! I've seen seen many complaints that they fall off and get looser over time!.
2. With a CHEAPER headset (by LG)... about half the price, I never had problems with the volume that I couldn't fix but with this one, there seems to be no SETTINGS to change it - there aren't even Windows mic settings for volume when it's the default mic item! This is AWFUL for recording video of gaming! <I had to do a work-around where i reduce all game sounds and reduce volume of GAME 'recording' while maxing out the volume of MIc recording at the recording sfotware end (NVidia/Geforce Experience aka Shadowplay)....VERY frustrating
3. The STUPID, POINTLESS dongle along the cord for headset Volume control (why do I need this??), gets snagged then rips apart, has a pointless 7.1Surround button, which i often find OFF (again, WHY have this option there) and a Mic volume which when i start a new game and ask other players, find that it's increasing my volume....I.e. My mic volume wasn't at Max for some reason...?...
^ This is all the opposite of what you want in a gaming headset and certainly not what I expected in a headset TWICE as expensive as the LG one I was using that DIDN'T HAVE THESE PROBLEMS!
Sound is great, good surround sound. Comfortable to wear during long periods (my ears fit perfectly inside). Not too heavy. Workmates say the sound is clear, although I look and sound like I'm about to report a crash on the Tulla from the helicopter.
All in all - great price for this quality. Arrived almost a week earlier than expected (Melb west suburbs). Good accessories. Highly recommended for any use.
To be exceedingly fair, this set may be OK for someone with a small head and ears, like children. Straight out of the packet, the design has the earpads clamped together by the arc of spring steel. This means the wider they are forced apart, the greater the force clamping down on your skull. So, the bigger your head, the more pressure. Short of taking the risk of bending parts of the frame out of shape to relieve the pressure (voiding warranty, I am sure), you are stuck with it.
To add insult to injury, the next problem is that much of this pressure bears down on your ears, not your head. Unfortunately, as elegant as an oval looks in design terms, the ear is NOT oval shaped! (unless you are a Vulcan...) So, again, unless you have very small ears, the cups will be squeezing your ears into your brain (or so it feels after a long session).
To try to alleviate the discomfort, I swapped the faux leather pads for the supplied cloth alternates. What a design joke. It took half an hour of pulling and squeezing to get it done. The genius designer did not just specify a stretch rubber-type retainer that slips over the frame, but, critically, a very narrow channel, about the thickness of a finger nail, that it must slip into. This made the job of simultaneously stretching and controlling the retainer, while trying to get it to slip into its narrow resting place a real nightmare.
These headphones were three times the price of my last ones (from a different maker) that I could wear with no issues for hours (sometimes forgetting I had them on). These new ones are immediately mildly uncomfortable, rising to extremely uncomfortable after an hour or so. My old ones lasted me the better part of a decade. I cannot imagine that I will tolerate these for long. Sometimes, even a friend's recommendation is not a reliable review. (I am too polite to tell him what I think, but as I have said nothing about them, I suspect he knows.....)
Music is amazing, lots of bass, i normally have to turn the headphones to max volume to enjoy my Metallica, but I found I actually had to have it on 7 - they are really really loud, which is perfect.
Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to these, you wont regret it.

J'ai été vraiment surpris par la qualité du son. Il est clair, propre et immersif. J'arrive enfin à surprendre un ennemi dans un FPS grâce aux informations données par l'environnement sonore ! J'avais trois casques différents pour la télé, le portable et le pc. Je ne me sers maintenant plus que du Cloud II pour vous dire. Je ne me sers cependant pas du 7.1 Virtuel que je trouve inutile et de mauvaise qualité.
Que le micro soit amovible c'est vraiment le top, et il est parfaitement ajustable lorsqu'il est branché. Le design est sobre et élégant et les finitions sont remarquables. Coussinets en velours ou cuir au choix et pochette de rangement en plus, sympathique.
Si je devais lui reprocher quelque chose ce serait qu'il n'y a pas d'interfaces de commandes (muet, volume) sur les écouteurs mais que le hub est sur le casque. C'est un choix du constructeur, j'étais habitué à l'inverse. Au final ce n'est pas plus mal d'un point de vue design de manière à ce que l'on peut le porter plus facilement pour écouter simplement de la musique sans qu'il ne crie "gaming".
Je finirais par quelques mots sur le confort. C'est le seul casque que j'ai trouvé jusqu'à maintenant avec lequel après plusieurs heures de sessions de gaming ou de film je le trouve encore vraiment confortable (portant des lunettes pendant ces sessions).
J'en ai fais déjà acheté deux à des amis qui sont tout autant satisfait que moi. Pour moi, il n'y a vraiment pas mieux.
J'espère vous avoir convaincu ;)
The issue for this product arose that i'd feel my head being squished by the headset, which led to initial discomfort. I'd often swap back to just using my speakers because my head was aching from wearing it for so long. However, as continued use got on, either it turned my head into an meat accordion to make itself fit, or i just stretched it out with my immensely obtuse cranium use. Either way, the discomfort went away after about a week or two.
Sound quality is absolutely stellar. I've almost overdosed on heavy bass at least 5 times since I got it.
Outgoing verbal quality is also amazing, so my friends have said- although, there was a brief period where my outgoing audio was not good. I figure it was just a loose connection, so i took apart and reconnected everything and i've not had a single issue since- (In retrospect, my friends discovered it's entirely possible audio was going through my webcam mic instead).
I ordered this headset about two months ago, and the quality that it has so far bestowed me with is probably the best i've ever experienced, then again, i've never shelled out this much for a headset/mic in the past, so it was to be expected.
Unsure? thinking of checking many a forum to find the right answer? Just buy this. I've extensively asked many different people/communities what they think the best for the money is, and they're all pointing to this. It's probably definitely worth the money.
Partiamo col fatto della completa modularità: Le cuffie possono essere usate tranquillamente da pc, smartphone, console e anche tostapani (se volete sentire meglio il "tiiin") mediante il plug/unplug di varie periferiche. Possiamo tranquillamente andare a fare un giro all'aperto staccando il microfono e la scheda audio usb, e ci rimarrà il jack 3.5, Per gaming su pc basta riattaccare il tutto, su console basta staccare solo la scheda audio e così via.
Ora parliamo di Confort e Design. Le cuffie sono tra le più leggere che abbia mai provato e anche tra le più leggere cuffie gaming in assoluto. Il loro design è sobrio e senza troppi sfarzi, rendendole adatte sia ad una postazione tamarra che ad una minimal.
Ora il microfono è un piccolo neo, ma nemmeno troppo grosso. Il volume è leggermente basso, ma basterà avvicinarlo a un paio di centimetri dalla bocca ed il suono catturato sarà davvero cristallino. Simpatico l'antipop anche se non svolge egregiamente il suo lavoro. Se non vogliamo o non ci serve il microfono in un preciso momento, taac si stacca.
Il packaging è davvero qualcosa di fenomenale, non mi sarei mai e poi mai aspettato di ricevere così tanto: cuffie, microfono, scheda audio 7.1 usb, adattatore per aereo, custodia da viaggio, padiglioni di ricambio e tantissimi sali di silicia.
Ora passiamo al succo dell'headset: l'audio. Si presenta davvero in maniera cristallina su tutte le tonalità, è molto bilanciato e mai intrusivo, non fa sembrare di avere la testa dentro un acquario come il 70% delle normali cuffie gaming. Il 7.1 poi è qualcosa di favolosamente preciso e maestoso.
Uno tra i migliori headset in commercio per qualità prezzo, i materiali, il design e tutti i fattori di queste cuffie mi suggeriscono affidabilità e qualità.
VOTO GENERALE 9.5/10 (il microfono potrebbe avere un volume un po' più alto).
Se vi è stata utile questa recensione, segnalatelo con l'apposito bottone! ;)
1st was Plantronics Rig Flex, 2nd was Logitech G430 - nothing wrong with either but I have a small girly head and 1 other specific problem, I have a behind ear hearing aid. Now trying to find a comfortable solution to gaming that doesn't suffer feedback has been a trial and a half!
First mention is for the quality packaging, these bad boys arrive in a lovely box with plenty of secure foam packing and a carry bag. Oo la la!
The HyperX Clouds are quite literally as light as a cloud. These headphones are plenty big enough for guy heads but also small and light enough for girl heads, they don't swamp you. The wide flat padded headband doesn't make your head go numb when wearing them (Yes I have mine on for 8 -10 hours a day! and it's a big problem if they hurt) Now, I use the velour covered ear cups and they just sit happy as a bunny on my ears without causing my hearing aid to whine with feedback - RESULT finally!!! Apparently the Pleather covered cups cut out more background noise but as I can't use them I can't comment.
The sound quality is fab, they're simply a USB plug n play. The dongle gives you control over sound and mic volumes and when to activate the 7.1 surround for game play. The mic is detachable, so you can use just the stereo headphones plugged into your phone or MP3 player if you want or if you live stream with a static mic and don't want to use the boom mic.
The construction is plenty sturdy enough. My reply to those who say they break easily is take more care with your stuff! No rage quitting and throwing them down in disgust might go a long way ;-p
I don't think I'll ever need a different brand now I've found these :-D
Ich habe es gekauft für die Nutzung an der PS4, was am Controller mit der Klinke im Stereoton auch funktioniert.
Allerdings ist an diesem kurzen Kabel kein Regler für Lautstärke und auch kein Schalter für die Mikrofonstummschaltung.
Diese Funktionen sind am separaten USB Kabel, welches auch die Soundkarte für 7.1 Surround Sound enthält. Wenn man diese jedoch anschließt, passiert erst mal gar nix , dazu muß man sich die neuste Firmware auf die Soundkarte des Kopfhörers spielen. Wieder anschließen und siehe da, ein Ton und das Mikrofon geht auch....nun wieder ein ABER.
Das Mikrofon lässt sich immer noch nicht Stummschalten und was hört man auf dem Kopfhörer?....... ein Knistern und Pratzeln, was echt nervig ist auf die Dauer. Leider ist das noch nicht alles, im Chat wurde dann auch noch festgestellt, daß die Mikrofonqualität wesentlich schlechter ist als am Controller-Anschluss.
Wenn man die Regelung und das 7.1 über den USB Anschluss nicht braucht, ist das Headset okay, jedoch nicht für diesen Preis. Ich hab mir dummerweise gleich 2 bestellt, eins geht auf jeden Fall wieder zurück, auch werde ich heute mal die Hotline des Technischen-Supports testen, mal sehen was die dazu sagen.
