This review is from: HyperX Cloud Stereo Gaming Headset for PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile - Black
Pros: I'm no audiophile so to me they sound excellent, for music and for games. Games like BF3/BF4 with awesome sound design make them worth the price. They're sturdily built, have a great design and aesthetic feel, and are very comfortable overall. The replaceable ear-cups were the difference (see other thoughts). Plenty of cables and adapters for different configurations. Bought them based on an article on PCGamer for best overall quality/price. Definitely worth it.
I'm feeding them through an EarForce Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound module (ironically from a different headset that are now long gone), and they sound excellent. Even without the module the quality is great.
Cons: For my slightly larger than average head and ears, they were a bit tight at first. I couldn't wear them for extended periods of time without adjusting them constantly.
The detachable mic is OK at best. But I bought these for the comfort and quality; the mic is basically a bonus. The slider next to mic input on the little volume control box doesn't seem to do much. I tested a sound recording with the slider in both positions and it didn't make a difference. Same with the button on the bottom. Seems kinda useless but maybe I did something wrong.
Other Thoughts: I was literally on the Newegg RMA page ready to return them, because I was torn between how awesome they sound and how much they hurt my ears after too long of wearing them (1 hour+). I remembered about the velour ear cups that you can replace the default leather ones with, but there were no instructions on how to replace them that came with the package. I was able to find a YouTube video showing how to do it, and it's actually quite simple, just takes a bit of patience. After replacing one of the velour cups and comparing that simultaneously with the leather one that was still on, I knew immediately it was a lot better. Now I'm sitting here writing this review with them on and they're super comfortable. It's not so much about the material, either; the velour ear cups are just slightly larger and fit my ears a lot better.
I previously had bought an ASUS Vulcan headset, and that is still the most comfortable headset I've ever worn, but these are a close second.
Tl;dr the replaceable ear cups are great for those of us with slightly larger heads/ears.
Pros: Awesome card, no issues whatsoever with installing. Surprised it only needed 1 6-pin power connector. Solid upgrade from my GTX 560 Ti
Cons: Can't record BF4 on Ultra settings at 1080p, but that might be a CPU bottleneck issue.
Other Thoughts: Can run BF4 on ULTRA and get 60 FPS with a good CPU. Truthfully I needed an upgrade to support a triple monitor setup, the good framerates in-game are a bonus for me. Have yet to see it get above 48 C while playing BF4, and that's without the fan even getting to full speed. My old GTX 560 Ti would struggle to play BF4 on low settings and get into the 60's C.
I buy EVGA or MSI and have yet to be disappointed.
Pros: Great quality at an unbeatable price. Unless yours is DoA, you can't go wrong. Love the tactile buttons and color mode presets.
Cons: Bezel might be a tad thick but that's nit-picky.
Other Thoughts: Got this to be the center for my new triple monitor setup. Had to get a new GPU that supports 3 monitor outputs. Totally worth it. Highly recommended.READ FULL REVIEW
