First of all I would like to thank HyperX for sending me their headset for review. After having reviewed a variety of headsets, I was curious to see how the HyperX Cloud II would compare to its competitors, such as the Creative Sound BlasterX H5 Headset and more so the QPAD QH-90, which looks identical to the Cloud II.
The headset can be found on AmazonUK between £60-70 and on AmazonUSA between $85-100. This review will be based on a £65 price tag.
Here’s my video review (recording quality tests will be of interest to you):
Now let’s get into the written review!
Note: Some aspects of this review will be similar to my QH-90 review, as they’re similar in many ways.
