What you need to know
- The Cloud II Wireless headphones are now shipping.
- In our review, we called these the best PC gaming headphones for this price point.
- Retail price is $150, but there may be deals for Black Friday.
Back in late October, we reviewed HyperX's latest PC wireless gaming headset – the Cloud II Wireless – a riff on its popular Cloud II gaming headphones.
As the name implies, the Cloud II Wireless goes with a 2.4GHz dongle for a no-cable PC (PS4, and Nintendo Switch) experience while retaining the same excellent build quality, large 53mm drivers, and 7.1 surround sound. They are also some of the most comfortable headphones that you can wear for hours without feeling like there is a clamp on your head.
At the time of our review, the Cloud II Wireless was only listed as "coming soon," but HyperX is starting to ship the headphones today.
At $150, these are in the premium category, but HyperX has a fantastic reputation in the gaming industry and top-notch build quality and customer support. There is also hope that they could get discounted for Black Friday as the non-wireless versions often temporarily drop by $20. The only downside with these headphones is the lack of support for Xbox. But if you are primarily a PC gamer, these should be on your list for this holiday season.
HyperX now offers a wireless version of its popular Cloud II headset with a 2.4GHz dongle. The sound quality is superb; the design is excellent; the setup is no-frills and works as expected. Toss in the high-level comfort, and HyperX has a winner here.
Affordable accessories that'll pair perfectly with your PC
Every one of these awesome PC accessories will enhance your everyday experience — and none cost more than $30.
KLIM Aim RGB gaming mouse ($30 at Amazon)
Whether you're a gamer or not, this is an absurdly good mouse for the price. It's ambidextrous, has a responsive sensor, a braided cable, tank-like build quality, and, yes, it has RGB lighting, though you can turn it off if that's not your thing.
AmazonBasics USB speakers ($16 at Amazon)
These neat little speakers may only pack 2.4W of total power, but don't let that fool you. For something so small you get a well-rounded sound and a stylish design. And they only cost $16.
Razer mouse bungee ($20 at Amazon)
Use a wired mouse? You need a mouse bungee to keep your cable tidy and free of snags. You get no drag on the cable, and this one has subtle styling, a rust-resistant spring and a weighted base, all for $20.
