The HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II Wireless are comfortable gaming headphones that are compatible with PCs, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch consoles. Thanks to their wireless dongle, they have very low latency. They also have over 30 hours of continuous playback time, so you don't have to worry about charging them very often. While some users may prefer their slightly bass-heavy sound profile, they don't have an EQ to help customize their sound. Their companion software also is fairly basic and doesn't offer many customization features. That said, they're well-built and have a detachable boom mic that does an impressive job of recording your voice, even in noisy environments.

Our Verdict

7.5 Neutral Sound

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless are good for neutral sound. They have a slightly bass-heavy sound profile with a neutral and even mid-range that helps accurately reproduce vocals and lead instruments. However, their treble-range is a bit uneven, resulting in dull vocals and lead instruments as well as sharp sibilants like S and T sounds. They also don't have a comprehensive EQ to help customize their sound, and their passive soundstage can be perceived as small.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
Cons
  • Sub-par passive soundstage.
5.7 Commute/Travel

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless are mediocre for commute and travel. While they're comfortable enough for long flights and have over 30 hours of continuous battery life, they don't block out any bass-range noise like bus or plane engines. They're also fairly bulky and can't fold up to be made more portable. They don't have a carrying case and need their wireless USB dongle in order to transmit audio, which isn't convenient if you want to listen to audio from your phone.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
  • Over 30 hours of continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Middling noise isolation performance.
  • Don't support Bluetooth.
  • No music or call management controls.
6.0 Sports/Fitness

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless are alright for sports and fitness. While they're stable enough for gaming, they aren't really designed for use during physical activity and can fall off your head while you're moving. They also don't have an IP rating for water resistance and need their wireless USB dongle to transmit audio. Their lack of an audio cable reduces the chances of something snagging and pulling them off your head, though.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
Cons
  • Don't support Bluetooth.
6.9 Office

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless are okay for office use. They're comfortable and their battery life should last through a few shifts at the office before they need a recharge. However, they struggle to cut down ambient chatter around you and only support non-Bluetooth wireless via their USB dongle, so you won't be able to wirelessly stream audio from your smartphone. They also don't support multi-device pairing.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
  • Over 30 hours of continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Middling noise isolation performance.
  • Don't support Bluetooth.
7.5 Wireless Gaming

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless are good for wireless gaming. They're well-built, comfortable enough for long gaming sessions, and have low audio latency via their non-Bluetooth wireless dongle. Their continuous battery life lasts over 30 hours, and their mic can record your voice clearly, even in noisy environments. However, their companion software also only offers limited features and it doesn't have an EQ to help tweak their sound.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
  • Over 30 hours of continuous battery life.
  • Excellent performing boom mic.
Cons
  • No channel mixing.
5.8 Wired Gaming

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless are wireless gaming headphones and can only be used with non-Bluetooth wireless.

6.9 Phone Calls

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless are fair for phone calls. Their detachable boom mic does a great job of recording your voice, even in very noisy environments. However, the headphones don't really block out bass-range noise like bus engines and only slightly reduces ambient chatter, so you may want to take calls in quieter environments to clearly hear the person on the other end of the line.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
  • Excellent performing boom mic.
Cons
  • Middling noise isolation performance.
  • 7.5 Neutral Sound
  • 5.7 Commute/Travel
  • 6.0 Sports/Fitness

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless look identical to the HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II. They have a black frame with red accents on the hinges, headband stitching, and brand logo on each earcup. They also have a detachable boom mic, which can help them look more casual.

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless have sub-par controls. They're gaming headphones and lack basic call or music-related controls such as a dedicated play/pause button. That said, unlike the wired HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II, they have controls on both ear cups. On the left ear cup, there's a power button, as well as a mic mute button which has an LED light that turns red when you're muted. You can also press and hold the mic button to turn 7.1 surround sound on and off. On the right earcup is an infinite volume wheel. It has a different audio chime to let you know when you've reached the minimum or maximum volume. The headphones also beep to indicate their auto-off timer. Unfortunately, they lack channel mixing.

Build Quality

The HyperX Cloud II Wireless have a great build quality. Their hinges and yokes are made of aluminum, which makes them feel durable. The ear cups also feel dense and should survive a couple of accidental drops without taking too much damage. They have leather padding on the headband and ear cups, too. However, the audio cable linking the ear cups to the headband is a potential weak point.

6.5
Design
Stability

These headphones have a fairly stable fit. They're stable enough for playing video games, but they're not ideal for sports. They can fall or slip off your head during moderate exercise. On the upside, they have a wireless design, so you don't need to worry about an audio cable hooked on something, which may pull them off your head.

The HyperX Cloud II Wireless have a slightly bass-heavy sound profile that's well-suited for emphasizing sound effects in video games. The mids are also balanced, so dialogue in cutscenes is accurately reproduced. Unfortunately, they lack companion software to help you customize their sound profile.

These headphones have a sub-par frequency response consistency. Bass and treble delivery can vary due to fit, positioning, and seal. You may experience a drop in bass if you wear glasses or have thick hair, as this can break the headphones' seal.

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless have fair treble accuracy. The low-treble is uneven, so some vocals and lead instruments sound slightly harsh or veiled. The mid-treble is overemphasized, which makes sibilants like cymbals sound a bit piercing.

Dips

These headphones have decent peaks and dips performance. There's a small peak in the high-bass which adds boom. It's followed by a slight dip in the low to mid-mid range, nudging back vocals and lead instruments to the back of the mix. There's a peak and dip in the low-treble range, so the upper harmonics of vocals and lead instruments are bright but become very veiled as the frequency increases. The mid-treble has a couple of peaks as well, resulting in piercing sibilants.

Update 06/04/2021: We fixed the imaging issue with these headphones, which resulted in the score changing from '5.3' to '8.7'. The biggest change was that the 'Weighted Frequency Mismatch' went from 186.94 to 1.73. There's also a bump in the 'Phase Response Mismatch' at 300Hz, but it's not really audible with regular content. However, the sound feels a little off-centered and shifted to the left. This could be specific to the sweep in our software, but we don't currently know for sure. As a result, the scoring of this box has changed.

These headphones have an excellent imaging performance. Although there are a few peaks in the group delay's bass range, it's incredibly minor. The group delay falls within good levels, resulting in tight bass and transparent treble reproduction. The L/R drivers are also well-matched in phase, amplitude, and frequency response, which is important for the accurate placement and localization of objects and instruments in the stereo image. While there's a small bump at 300Hz in the phase response, this warping sound can be very hard to hear with real-life content. Note that these results are only valid for our unit and yours may perform differently.

The HyperX Cloud 2 Wireless have a disappointing passive soundstage. The soundstage is perceived as natural, but small and located mostly inside your head rather than out in front of you. Due to their closed-back design, they won't sound as open or spacious as open-back headphones like the Drop + Sennheiser PC38X.

The weighted harmonic distortion performance of these headphones is satisfactory. At a normal listening volume, there's a small peak in the low-treble. However, it can be hard to hear with real-life content. That said, the range falls within good limits, resulting in mostly clean and pure audio reproduction.

Note: A user has reported that there is an 'Auto-Optimizer' feature available when using the 7.1 surround sound feature when using the HyperX Cloud Alpha S. This feature is advertised to apply a customized audio preset to select games. However, we didn't test this feature and it isn't listed on the NGENUITY (BETA) website.
