HyperX is now shipping the Cloud II Wireless Gaming Headset. The headset has HyperX custom-tuned virtual 7.1 surround sound and 53mm drivers. It broadcasts at 2.4GHz and, depending on usage, has up to 30 hours of battery life. Its range is 20 meters. 

The HyperX Cloud II Wireless headset sports an aluminum frame with an adjustable headband, pliable leatherette, and plush memory foam. It also has earcup controls for volume, muting the mic, activating mic monitoring, and 7.1 surround sound to improve positional audio. 

The headset is compatible with PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. It comes with a noise-canceling detachable microphone designed to reduce background noise and the effects of plosive sounds. The flexible microphone includes built-in mic monitoring, an LED mic mute indicator, and an optional foam pop filter. 

The Cloud II Wireless is certified by TeamSpeak and Discord for chat compatibility, and it works with HyperX’s NGENUITY software. It’s available on the HyperX shop for $149.99 MSRP in the United States and $219.99 MSRP in Canada.
