Is Razer or HyperX better?
Our Verdict. The HyperX Cloud Stinger is a better gaming headset than the Razer Kraken X. The Stinger are more comfortable, feel better-built, and have a more balanced sound quality. Their microphones perform similarly, but the Kraken X’s can make speech sound a bit fuller and deeper, which is great.
What is the difference between HyperX Cloud 2 and alpha?
The Cloud Alpha has a detachable cable, and its bag is made from a nicer material. On top of these basics, the Cloud II includes a USB sound card, and an extra set of velour ear pads with slightly stiffer foam. Now, that sound card might be really useful to you. It provides decent simulated 7.1 surround sound.
What’s better than the HyperX Cloud 2?
