Rated 5 out of 5 by TMFL69 from Great Head Phones These work great. I bought them because I am going deaf but they are great for me. I can actually hear people sneaking up on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arika from No complaints Second pair! My daughter loves these so much that after a couple years we had to replace them with the exact same pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good battery lifer but instant headache. The clamp strength was so strong that I had head aches in 30 minutes. If you wear glasses, forget about getting these headphone. It's a real shame too because the battery life was so good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marshall Q from Incredible audio, could be a little more comfortable Fantastic audio. The soundstage and imaging are incredible. NGenuity is not as bad as everyone says. My only issue has been it's not the most comfortable headset. But it's a small enough trade off for the audio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by debbie3134 from Best headset for me These are my first ever good quality, name brand, top end (gaming) headphones/headset. Love how these are so comfortable on my ears and they have a good weight on them (not too heavy nor light) - the entire headset is made with such good quality that you can feel. Worth the price and has superb sound, esp the base sounds! Good for music as on top of gaming/voice chatting. I like the detachable microphone as well very convenient and yes, it is stable! Make sure to fully connect the detachable headphone or else it’ll fall (I made that mistake my first time but it is overall stable/doesn’t fall). I didn’t know HyperX is also from HP which is amazing (as an HP user too). Love the audio adapter? Extra cord that connects to the computer along with the sound/microphone splitter. Besides that the design is gorgeous - I have purchased the red one. Did my research on which headset to get and I’m super happy and satisfied with my Cloud Alpha. Wasn’t too expensive for me either. Thanks for the good product and sound, everything about this headset!
