I bought the headset two months ago and it is very durable and comfortable with amazing sound quality. There is a small rubber piece that covers the hole for the microphone that can be lost easily tho.

The HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset 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 sound1 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-cancelling 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 One2 . Its closed cup design helps with noise cancellation in gaming tournaments and other loud environments, so players can obliterate the enemy in peace. HyperX Cloud II comes in three new colors — Gun Metal, Pink and Red — and is covered by a two-year warranty and free technical support. Take gaming to a new level with the HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset.

My first headset, and almost everything's great, but one issue: the microphone setting. The headset tries to make you use their in-built mic settings, not the system ones. However, the maximum volume it goes to is extremely low, which made me have to use a bunch of workarounds to increase it to audible levels. Otherwise it's very comfy, although my hair looks a bit messy after taking it off
The audio control board for the Cloud II has been changed from analog to digital. I suppose this is good for people who only want to plug in one USB cable instead of two analog (mic/headset) wires to their computer. The disadvantage is that the HyperX digital audio overrides the audio system in the computer and effectively disables all the equalizers and audio effects that might be generated on a native sound card. The headset audio sounds acceptable in the 7.1 audio mode, but the old analog sound card was vastly superior at reproducing what my computer sound card generates.
