Earlier this year we took a look at HyperX’s Cloud Flight S gaming headset. It was a really good headset and one I still use to this day, but during that review I wondered why HyperX did not make a wireless headset based off their very popular original Cloud and Cloud II gaming headsets. They were some of the most comfortable gaming headsets that I had ever used. Well fast forward to today and HyperX is launching the Cloud II wireless, which has the familiar Cloud design we all know and love, 53mm drivers, custom-tuned virtual 7.1 surround sound, and of course 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity. Is this the ultimate wireless gaming headset? Read on as we find out!
