The feel: This headset is large and comfortable, and it feels sturdy and well-built.
Comfort in the long-run: Four hours of gaming saw little to no discomfort on my larger head with smaller ears. Smaller headed people will have a better experience than me for sure.
Feature packed: It's jam packed worth of features like LED's, speakers, settings, stands, cable and more.
Too many options: 5.1 sounds great when you're going to purchase a product, but what does analog 5.1 give you realistically when in-game that a virtual like solution provided in the HyperX Cloud II will not? Sure, you might notice some subtle differences, but it's something that I think it better in theory than in practice and ends up adding some extra dollars to your purchase price.
So many connections: USB + all the 3.5mm jacks make for an annoying set-up experience.
No carry pouch: What can I say, having one is really handy and you should expect one for $100+ retail pricing.
It costs a massive $250 in Australia, so if you're in USA or Canada, you might be jumping for joy at the lower price point, even though it costs more than some others we have tested. As stated many times, this headset sounds good and it'll be great for those looking for a bunch of features, but if you're a fan of simplicity, you should steer clear.
