Kingston HyperX Cloud II Pro Gaming Headset Review

A Dota 2 analysis


I attended a live-viewing of the Dota 2 Asian Championships event this Monday (local Australian time) and watched Team Evil Geniuses kick it on in the grand final event - funnily enough they were also wearing HyperX headsets, however, their models were the older Cloud I edition.




If it's good enough for these guys, it much be good enough for my Dota 2 pub skill, right? As mentioned previously in reviews, I love to listen to music while I game - so a mix of hard style, house music and heavy metal in the background of my Dota 2 rampage sounded brilliant. This was alongside screaming by my mates over Skype or Mumble and even some in-game slander from random angry Dota 2 patrons.


There was a little bit of sweating to be had - thanks to the synthetic leather ear cups, my natural tenancy to sweat and the 30 degree Celsius Australian summer days kicking on, however, besides this, they felt great.



Let's keep gaming


Moving on to World of Warcraft and cranking the music up a notch saw a similar experience encountered. Sometimes headphones that are marketed for FPS or multi-game environments contain a major lack of bass due to footsteps being important and being made of treble, however, Kingston has not held back, meaning you can plod along in your casual games and grind away, while listening to your favorite tracks and further enjoy your time spent.




Something else is to be said for the stalk of this microphone. Being one of the most bendy and awesome designs I have seen yet, it means that no matter what's going on around you, whether it be a party next door or my loud house mates playing some Smash Brothers on the Wii U, your mates in Skype will play undisturbed.
