  • I saw the thumbnail and was a bit afraid what you would say about the Hypercloud X 2 I have for... wow, I think 6 or so years. Anyway! Kinda glad to know I chose something that impresses even you, and can confirm basically all you said. Still have my first pair of replacement cups too since these things last quite a while. I recommend using the soft fabric ones for winter, and the leatherly ones for summer. The only thing that would get a mild minus is that the inner side of the top of the headrest eventually started dissolving to the point I could rub it off with my finger. Just the covering though. The soft padding is still under some kind of fabric, and after a mild panic attack, they still kept sitting kindly on my head. They ARE however available in other colors. Mine are Gunmetal Black if I remember correctly, ...or just black and silver it's been a while since I saw the packaging. And if these eventually do give out, I think I'll just stick to Hypercloud X 2. For that price, it's difficult to get the same materials and simple features (screw you razer).

  • I'm pretty sure that the astros are actually open back (but mostyly covered by those side panels). the a40s have removable 'speaker tags' (those panels on each earphone), and taking them off makes them look more open. Then there were close-back conversion kits that had gaskets and whatnot to seal noise better since they were targeted for 'pros'

  • Microphones are all sounding really bad. No one of this are yctually sound really good. Sound is flat, low detailed and has this near speaking effect, because its so near to the mouth. A t.bone SC450 USB Microphone from thomann and the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro/990 Pro is cheaper than the Stealseries and sounds minimun ten times better

  • To anyone reading this comment, I’d recommend a RUN-MUS headset. Not a well known brand but a damn good one. Had em for almost two years now, audio quality is great, bass etc. the mic, yeah it’s good but sometimes can be annoying. But for 30 dollars (The price i got them) it’s worth it. 8.7/10

  • This is a bit late, but could you maybe pick up a Corsair Void PRO RGB wireless headset? The iCUE software isn't as intrusive as Razer Synapse, and can be used to somehow change the audio ranges, so I'm curious to see how those would work. They use a USB-A dongle to work, though, and they're a bit pricey at 100 freedom buckaroos. However, I own a pair and I find they actually seem to have better sound than my old Bose QuietComfort IIs. Just curious to see what you think about them.

  • Not so fun fact: the hyper x cloud is just a rebranded takstar pro 80 from takstar who makes awesome headphones. Their pro 82 is absolutely insane for the price; so good that coolermaster decided to slap their logo on the thing and called it the mh 751, increased the price and yet still a sick headphone for the money.

  • Dankpods, you have to try out the Stealth 600 if you're doing this category. I pocketed them at a low price from Eb games and was pleasantly suprised by just how good they sound for music; especially amongst other gaming headphones. You should certainly give them a try - they are especially fun with the "bass boost and treble boost" mode activated (even if it is idiotic).

  • cloud 2's are honestly the only viable choice in the gaming headphone market. i find everything else to be either too plasticky, too fancy detailed, or just too expensive for what they offer. HyperX really really nailed it with the original cloud 2's. been rocking my second identical pair of them for a year now, after my first pair sadly died after 3.5 years. love them, absolutely love them. the normal cloud 2 model costs about 80 GBP. absolute money. 10/10 recommend
