    FAQS :

    Does it work on a computer?

    Yes, it is correct. It comes with a USB port for simple connection to your PC, laptop, or game controller. My kid uses this headset to stream online, and he likes it so much that I'm ordering one for myself.

    Is it possible to use this with an Xbox?

    Yes, as long as you have a splitter and a controller with a 3.5mm input (or the stereo headset adaptor). There are several videos on YouTube that demonstrate how to set up the Xbox headphone.

    Do they have a fantastic sound?

    Answer: These are great.... fantastic sound. On days when I really want to rock out, I wish they could be a bit louder, but they're loud enough for gaming. It's also comfortable on the head.

    Is this anything that would work on a Mac?

    yes It's still in fantastic shape and functions like new after 6 months of usage. I sometimes use it on my Mac... just remember to clean the ear cups after a month or two of heavy usage.

    Is the cord 3.5 mm?

    External sound USB to 3.5mm jack stereo headset audio adapter

    Is it possible to obtain 7.1 surround sound from a PS4 through USB?

    Answer: Allow me to clarify this for you. Only while using a computer can the USB sound card provide virtual 7.1 surround sound. Using the 3.5mm audio connector inserted into the controller, the Cloud II is officially supported with the PS4. It can be used with a USB sound card, however it will only allow pass through sound since the PS4 lacks the necessary drivers to operate the sound card. The 7.1, volume, and mic control buttons are disabled when used this manner; just the mic mute switch on the side works. If you have any more questions, please call us at 800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT, and a technician would be happy to assist you.

    Do the "Cloud II's" come with the same accessories as the "originals" Clouds?

    Answer: The Cloud II comes with almost all of the same accessories as the Cloud, with a few exceptions. The 1 metre extension cable is for the single 3.5mm connection on the Cloud II, and there is no Y-cable provided for mobile devices since it is not required. The Cloud II, like the original Cloud, has leatherette and velour ear cushions that can be swapped out.

    Is sidetone supported by the USB headset adapter? To put it another way, can you hear your own speech via the mic and headphone speakers?

    Answer: You may activate mic monitoring or pick "listen to" the mic in the audio settings while connected to a computer so that you can hear yourself via the mic on the headphones. This would not be accessible on other devices that do not have sophisticated audio choices, such as game consoles, mobile phones, or tablets.

    A 3,5mm connector is not available on my PC. Is it possible to attach this to a PC just by USB, or do you also need a 3.5mm audio jack?

    Answer: To connect the headset to the PC, all that is required is a USB connection. The headset is connected to the USB dongle through the 3.5mm connector, and the dongle is then connected to the PC via USB. When connected to the PC, you may utilise the built-in sound card and 7.1 surround sound. The 3.5mm jack is used for connecting the headset to a mobile device or the PlayStation 4. I was coming from a Turtle Beach x12 headset, which required both a USB port and an audio/mic connection. The HyperX Could II, on the other hand, merely requires a USB port.
