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.
has an over-the-ear form
βœ”HyperX Cloud Core
βœ”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.

has an earbud form
βœ–HyperX Cloud Core
βœ–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.
has an in-ear form
βœ–HyperX Cloud Core
βœ–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.
has an on-ear form
βœ–HyperX Cloud Core
βœ–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.

highest frequency

25000Hz

25000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
has active noise cancellation (noise control)
βœ–HyperX Cloud Core
βœ–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.
sound pressure level

98dB/mW

98dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
impedance

60 Ohms

60 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
has a neodymium magnet
βœ”HyperX Cloud Core
βœ”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.
has passive noise reduction
βœ”HyperX Cloud Core
βœ”HyperX Cloud II
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
