    "These headphones work great and give you great options for use. Corded and bluetooth let me be bale to use them for all my applications. I especially like that there are replacement parts available so if the pads become worn I can just replace them for example. I expect these headphones to become the envy of all my gaming friends and to last me for years to come. "

    "I've used the Razer gaming headset for almost a year now and I'm really happy with it. Very comfortable even after wearing it all day. Some of the other ones are too tight on my head and ache after an hour or so. Not the case with this one. "

    "Normally, when it comes to electronics, the brand Corsair makes me think of cheap hair dryers and curling irons found in major department stores. It may seem strange, but they have put together a reasonably good set of headphones for the gamer here. They are perfect suitable for casual use, but may not be ideal for professional gamers."

    "The Kingston HyperX Cloud II aims to offer everything the average gamer would want from a headset. That’s especially good when you consider how good the overall sound quality is, how well designed the various components are, and how comfortable it is to use for prolonged gaming sessions. Sure, you don’t get wireless connectivity or active noise cancellation, but those features are only usually available on headsets at twice or even three times this price. The Kingston HyperX Cloud II focuses on what’s important and ditched everything else. If you want an affordable, high-quality gaming headset that works across a wide range of devices, the Kingston HyperX Cloud II should absolutely be top of your list. "
