Rated 4 out of 5 by beautibyvee from It’s cool So far so good! It goes in and out a few times, but nothing too serious that’s why I gave it 4 stars. I wish it was wireless, but other than that , it’s pretty cool. I love that it came with a warranty. It makes my gaming experience more enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jenno713 from My husband stole them..... So once this arrived my husband stole them and immediately went to his game. He loves them. Quality is great, sound is amazing and mic is clear. I now have to get another pair for my other 2 boys as they are jealous. Lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wilkaa from the noise cancelling mic The hyperx cloud stinger 2 core headphones are a really good budget friendly pair of headphones. The latency is perfect for gaming (almost unnoticeable) and you will always be one step ahead of everyone. It's also one of the most comfortable pairs of headsets I've ever used, with absolutely no pain or feelings of discomfort from getting used to how they clasp around my head. The audio wheel is easily accessible and quick to use when needed. The microphone is shockingly good quality for a headset and can be a considerable replacement to most USB Mics in that same price range, especially with the pop filter it comes with that does not fall off at all. Even if you aren't a gamer, these headphones will do anything you want better than most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Awesome!! These are awesome!! They completely cancel out all sound before you even start playing games. They are pretty loud and seem of good quality. If you are thinking about getting these they are definitely a must try.
