This is very durable. You can accurately grasp the position of the enemy with a good sound.The mic isn't as loud as a condenser mic, but it's tuned for competition so it's for esports.The dual chamber driver creates a sound with a sense of separation, making it easy to distinguish various sounds.It also comes with a sound card, so if you buy this one, it's perfect.

Pros

  • Bass adjustment sliders
  • Very good durability
  • Very good sound
  • 2 year warranty
  • Abundant accessories
  • Very good cost performance
  • It's cool
  • Very good sound separation
  • Detachable cable
  • Detachable mic

    Los audífonos son cómodos la verdad, el control de graves se nota y el sonido es muy bueno, pero no veo necesario el extensor USB para el 7.1, ya que yo no note un buen 7.1 en los juegos, los compre para reemplazar los Corsair HS50,si, fueron buenos pero si fueras jugador casual recomendaría los Cloud II, porque yo no use para nada el control de graves. Ya si eres un jugador que utiliza discord junto con tus juegos tal vez lo recomendaría para dar mas sonido al chat de voz que al juego, en ese caso tal vez los recomendaria

    Pros

    • Comodos
    • Incluye almohadillas de tela extras

    Cons

    • Cable jack 3.5 corto
    • Si no utilizas discord no veo necesario comprar este modelo
    • Algo tediosos de configurar

    Design

    1.has a detachable cable
    HyperX Cloud Alpha S
    HyperX Cloud II
    With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
    2.weight

    321g

    350g

    We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
    3.has an over-the-ear form
    HyperX Cloud Alpha S
    HyperX Cloud II
    Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
    A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
    5.has RGB lighting
    HyperX Cloud Alpha S
    HyperX Cloud II
    RGB lighting allows you to choose between millions of colors and customize the look of your PC components.
    6.can be folded
    HyperX Cloud Alpha S
    HyperX Cloud II
    Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
    7.has an earbud form
    HyperX Cloud Alpha S
    HyperX Cloud II
    The earbud form is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. For some people it is more comfortable than in-ear form.
    8.has an in-ear form
    HyperX Cloud Alpha S
    HyperX Cloud II
    The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
    9.has an on-ear form
    HyperX Cloud Alpha S
    HyperX Cloud II
    This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.

    Sound quality

    The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
    2.highest frequency

    27000Hz

    25000Hz

    The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
    3.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
    HyperX Cloud Alpha S
    HyperX Cloud II
    This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
    The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
    Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
    6.impedance

    65 Ohms

    60 Ohms

    HyperX Cloud II
    Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
    8.has passive noise reduction
    HyperX Cloud Alpha S
    HyperX Cloud II
    The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
    9.drivers count
