Earlier today the folks over at Kingston announced the HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset is available for your listening pleasure. This beast includes many of the cool features from the original HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset, plus a newly designed USB sound card audio control box with 7.1 virtual surround sound. According to the press release “the LED backlit audio control box delivers hardware-based (no drivers needed) 7.1 virtual surround sound with independent audio and microphone volume control.” Simply push a button to toggle the 7.1 virtual surround sound and prepare for a face-melting gaming session.

HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset

The HyperX Cloud II is available in red, gun metal, and coming soon a limited edition pink. The Kingston Shop lists the headset for $150 and will ship on March 9, while Amazon lists them for $99 and is offering a 16 GB USB drive with your pre-order. Sounds like a steal to us!

We reviewed the HyperX Cloud White Gaming Headset last year and couldn’t believe the ridiculous comfort these bad boys provided. Even after intense gaming sessions lasting several hours my ears never felt achy or the need for a break. You can’t go wrong when you combine the price, comfort, and quality found in the HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset. Yes sir, the bar was raised pretty high, but I’m confident the HyperX Cloud II will raise it even higher.

      The first generation is so good I don’t really feel the need to upgrade…
