[The Source] Kingston HyperX Cloud II $45 off

The actual sale price is only $20 off. However if you sign up to their newsletter with a toss away email you can get an additional $25 off which stacks. So far I haven't seen them much cheaper. The price may vary with environment fees. Here in NB they added $1.50.

The headset is also $119 on Amazon but their regular price is quite inflated. Just picked up a pair tonight as I wasn't happy with my crappy pair of Sade's from Amazon and these work great!

These work on PS4, PC and Xbox One.

great headset but they can feel pretty damn tight

not the type of headphones you can casually leave around your neck between games or something

I have quite a large head and don't find them very tight but they are tighter than some headsets like Logitech. However wearing them on my neck in between matches is a little uncomfortable. They are not as relaxed as some other headsets. However I do like the fact that most parts are replacable such as the mic. Also the headband is aluminium so won't break like turtle beaches do.

Picked up the cloud core version on the weekend for $45. How do these compare?
Some people meditate, I smoke cigars.

i think the only difference is the more expensive version comes with pass through box that adda 7.1 surround sound, which most people dont even want afaik. i think the core version on sale is the way to go. these sound very good for the price.

This post here sums up the differences: https://www.reddit.com/r/Gaming_Headset ... d_cloud_2/
Good post and read the first few comments. The audio cut out on both of my Cloud headsets within 1-3 months as well as those people. While the rest of the headset is built well and sounds great, the cord is a cheap piece of garbage and the connector stops transmitting signals. No direct volume control for console gamers either. I'm much happier with the Sony Golds which had a reputation of not being durable but have held up WAY better than these ones (and are wireless). It's a shame too since they sounded great. They should have made the cord replaceable on the headsets but they aren't.

Did you RMA both? Was it an easy process?

I did. Kingston actually had good support there and after the replacement broke they sent me a refund.

Bought one of these 18 months ago and they still work great for me. As bbmello pointed out, I also find them a bit tight. Headset is very sturdy and I like the fact that they used corded cables. I also appreciate having the choice of 2 different sets of ear cups, as I much prefer the velour cups to the default leatherette ones.
