Few questions before I buy HyperX Cloud 2's

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok, so I'm probably going to buy the HyperX Cloud 2's.

 

But I have a few questions before I buy them.

 

Are there any other better options for headphones out there? (I probably won't use the mic much, as I have my own)

 

Are they Closed-Back?

 

Opinions?

My Mac: Late 2013 $1300 model

When I was 13, I funded $1060 into my rig, all out of my own wallet. That's hardcore dedication m8's.

Yes they are closed back

The braiding kinks up and you have to cut but otherwise its great


Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

They are closed back but if you dont use the mic get these

I previously had those. I loved them so much, but they were open backed so I couldn't use them in many places, which is why I'm now looking for closed back ones.

 

Also on mine the clip was broken so I returned it.

For closed back those are probably the best for that price range, especially for anything marketed as a gaming headset.  However open back are going to usually sound better.  I would choose the SPH9500 unless you needed closed back for some reason.

I currently use the Superlux HD 66B headphones and I can tell you from using the cloud 2's on a daily basis, these have a much better sound quality and they are half the price.

 

When you get "Headsets" you are sacrificing the audio quality of the speakers and the mic to have both in one package.

Yes, they are closed back. They are Takstar Pro 80 with a mic on the side. Same as QPad QH-90. 

 

Pretty good value actually. 

 

 

I know Sennheiser HD280 are also just under 100. I haven't been able to use them myself but I've heard they are good. I touched a pair once but I couldn't listen to anything with them. Didn't like the pads, they were of the creaking sort. 


New favorite song, sit back and enjoy.

I had a 280pro. I liked them quite a bit, but Dat coiled cable was a nuisance for walking around.

Hey! New SIgnature! 

 

I'm supposedly a person on the Internet, but you'll never know if I'm human or not ;)
