HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset

I ordered this HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset off Lazada on the first day of MECQ. It’s a bit expensive. Delivery came in Saturday morning, so around a week, not too bad.

I’m actually not super-picky when it comes to audio issues, but lately the 3.5mm audio jack on my Razer keyboard has been giving off static. I couldn’t move my speaker connectors to the back of the desktop tower case because I often switch them out for earphones (when I’m doing voice chat or streaming on Twitch for example), and it’s inconvenient to do so when they’re so far in the back, so I’ve been wanting to buy a headset that can be plugged into a USB slot instead. That way, I can switch output sources via Windows 10’s built-in software controls. (You can switch output devices by clicking the speaker icon on the Windows 10 taskbar and clicking the ^ icon near the output device name).

I decided I might as well get a fancy headset, this will be the most expensive one I’ve ever bought. On the upside, I get a better (in theory) mic for recordings and voice chats (I was previously using the mic off a cheap webcam), and I can use it on the PS4 as well.

Tried it out a bit, it’s pretty nifty. But sometimes the mic attachment seems to fall off too easily. Maybe I’ll make a proper review once I’ve used it for while, although IDK if I’m not enough of an audiophile for any review to be meaningful.
