HyperX Cloud II features a redesigned USB sound card audio control box that amplifies audio and voice for an optimal Hi-Fi gaming experience, so you can hear what you've been missing. Open up a world of detail other gamers will never know — the rustle of a camper's boot, the scuttle in a distant vent. Its independent audio and microphone volume control lets you adjust not only sound volume but also mic volume and easily toggle Surround Sound 7.1 or the mic sound on and off. This next-generation headset generates virtual 7.1 surround sound with distance and depth to enhance your gaming, movie or music experience. Pinpoint your opponents' location in the game and strike before he sees you coming. It's hardware-driven and plug and play, with no driver needed. HyperX Cloud II has a digitally enhanced, noise-canceling microphone with automatic gain control functionality and echo cancellation enabled through the USB sound card. The result is clearer voice quality and reduced background noise, with voice volume automatically increasing as in-game sound gets louder, to optimize team communication and in-game chat in intense battles. HyperX Cloud II is certified by TeamSpeak and optimized for Skype and other leading chat programs. HyperX Cloud II is Hi-Fi capable, with 53mm drivers for superior audio performance and rich sound quality with crystal-clear low, mid and high tones and enhanced bass via the sound card. Pro-gaming optimized, HyperX Cloud II is USB-powered for PCs and Macs and 3.5mm stereo-compatible for PS4 and Xbox One1. Its closed cup design helps with noise cancellation in gaming tournaments and other loud environments so players can obliterate the enemy in peace.
