The feel: It's sturdy and well-built with soft ear cups - what's not to love?
Comfort in the long-run: Similar to the Cloud II, the expensive feel does not come at a high price. Expect to play for hours with more comfort than other headsets in this price range.
Easy to clean: With the same design as the Cloud II, it has a very simple exterior and soft leather ear cups, meaning a quick wipe with a damp cloth will keep your headset smelling nice and looking clean.
Size issues: Once again, due to being the same structure as the Cloud II, if you're a youngster or have a smaller head, the microphone and ear cups are going to look and feel like you're a child wearing mom's high heels.
The microphone: Compared to the Cloud II, it's simply not in the same ballpark and it looks a little weird.
The ear cups: The Cloud II's ear cups are much softer and feel more full when on your head.
It's better than any other headset I've tried at the same price, however, the Cloud II wins out in every field. With the Cloud II's improved sound, comfort and microphone quality, I would strongly suggest spending the extra $20 - $30 or so in investing in the upgraded edition.
Saying that, the Cloud is a great headset if you're stuck at a $70 or thereabout maximum price-range, providing you with an extremely sturdy design, good sound quality, a brilliant carry-case and enough cable extension to ensure you can run around the block before you're out of cord.

The Bottom Line: Almost an exact mirror image of the the HyperX Cloud II, this older brother just loses out in comfort and sound quality. However, this proves that Kingston has what it takes to listen and improve their range.
