abunda_amazon_reviews Holy crap. Best headset I've ever had. History: I'm strictly a PC gamer. Been on the hunt for a new headset after my old Logitech Artemis Spectrum G933 started shorting out. After a lot of research I tried the SteelSeries Arctis 7 (2019 edition), SteelSeries Arctis Pro + GameDAC, and the new Logitech G Pro X. The SteelSeries Arctis 7 had bad sound quality - I couldn't get any decent sound from it even with EQ. Unimpressed. The Arctis Pro was much better, but the GameDAC is crap - anything other than Flat EQ setting caused popping noises after audio stopped, and the surround feature sounds horrible. The headset seems to go into an inactive mode after 10 seconds of no audio, causing a digital popping sound if the EQ isn't set to flat. Also, to get decent sound out of them I had to run Equalizer APO + Peace to get even remotely close to good sound. The GameDAC EQ settings are decent, but again, if you use them you get a wonderful popping sound any time audio ends after 10 seconds. The Logitech G Pro X wasn't bad, but it was hollow and lacked the immersion I like for gaming and music. The mic on that thing is great though. The G Pro X would be my choice for a cheaper headset. ====== Enter the HyperX Cloud Orbit S. This headset sounds phenomenal out of the box, no EQ required. That said, it does come with plenty of EQ presents which I'm playing around with, however I find the "Default" EQ the best sounding for everything from games to music. This also happens to be the EQ it comes set on out of the box. The other EQ options are very well done, with no distortion. The "Warm" setting is a great bass boost for those who like a bit more power to the bass end. The "S" version includes head tracking technology which will virtually simulate a real "room" in which you are listening to audio, changing the sound when you move your head. It's extremely accurate and does exactly what it says it will do. While cool, I don't find a real use for it, as I prefer my audio to be based on my character's actual location in games, not my own head. For music, if you want to pretend you're in a concert hall, it's awesome. The non-S version lacks this feature and is a little cheaper. The 3D audio feature is unparalleled. I have never used the virtual surround feature in any past headset, since it tends to just degrade the sound quality and sound awful. This is the first headset where I actually ENJOY the 3D setting in games AND music. It opens up a wonderful soundstage that sounds like you're sitting in the audience of a live concert. I've spent several hours switching 3D audio on and off listening to music and in games. It will come down to personal preference, but I'm thoroughly impressed. Even without the gimmicky head-tracking tech, the 3D audio is nothing less than astounding. Comfort, not a problem. Reviews say the Arctis series is more comfortable with the ski-goggle strap style, which I actually really did like. This headset is perfectly comfortable though, and I forget I have it on. The memory foam headband and ear cups don't get too hot. Some reviewers complain about the weight. I do not find this headset overly heavy at all, especially after taking a little time to adjust it to sit properly on my head. It has more than enough extension to accommodate larger heads. The microphone is good. Some people mention that it is too quiet, however with proper positioning it is very clear and loud. You just have to make sure it's pointed the right way. The cons I can come up with: - Cannot control mic sidetone. Audeze states if the mic gain is set to less than 44% in the software, the sidetone is disabled, and this is true. I've never been a fan of microphone sidetone anyway, so I wish we could turn this off completely and still set microphone gain to 100%. - There is an EVER so slight "white noise" when no audio is playing. It's less of a sound or hiss than a "feeling." I can tell if the headset is on and nothing is playing - it's not an empty void of sound. This is hardly a con though. As soon as any audio is playing this is completely masked an unnoticeable. This sound floor is to be expected with any active amp headset, as I understand. - It's not wireless. Maybe in the future they will come out with a wireless version, however I do believe the pros of a wired connection (latency/sound quality/battery issues) outweighs wireless since I just sit at my PC desk anyway. - The "voice" prompts when switching EQ settings. This headset comes with preset EQ options, and when switching between them it feels the need to vocally announce which EQ setting you are choosing. This makes it somewhat difficult to compare the EQ presets, since you have to wait for a voice to announce this setting between options. I much prefer an instant switch where I can really tell how the sound is changing. This could easily be fixed in a future software/firmware update. - EQ. There is no option for a custom EQ, and the preset settings don't show what the EQ is actually doing. Again, easily fixed in a future software version I hope. Everything considered, this blows every Logitech and SteelSeries headset I've tried out of the water. I'm extremely satisfied and recommend this headset to anyone who can afford it. It's worth the extra $$$.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 8, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Best headset I've owned, bar none;;David;;;When I first got these they were fine. I was using older firmware, and the older software app. Even though I was running basic fw, with windows generic drivers only, it was clear these phones are wonderful in terms of sound. Clarity, picking up details in games (one DSP setting is called "ballistics" which is best for FPS) There are several others too, plus default and flat. All three modes worked, and the Hi Res, really was hi Res. The 7.1 surround was also well implemented. I was so glad because I knew when I install the latest firmware (which links to Audeze, not Hper x anymore) and the new software panel it could only get better. I had three weeks of good use. Then the trouble began. I updated the fw carefully and the software (all audeze branded). Strangly the red charging light was never to be seen again. It was permanently blue. The firmware "speaker lady" informs us of status, such as "3D on" "Hig res" all good, but I had a blue tooth comment from the speaker lady when not connected to USB, I always use USB by the way, that was when making sure they were charging. They didn't. I followed the instructions slowly and meticulously. It's possible I made some mistake but I seriously doubt it. The phones worked (with blue light only, and no charging) for a few days, but functionality was degraded. In the end they totally stopped working. They are dead. Plug in, nothing. Charge by proper usb adaptor. Press lots of buttons dead. Just before they finally died I checked the software and ALL three fw sections said NO firmware. It was 100% wiped. I thought firmware would remain even if the battery fully discharged. But no matter what I do nothing happens. As they are essentially a dead usb wire to my PC now cannot use any software. They are well and truely wiped (and firmware wiping can cause permanent damage, unlike driver or software mistakes. I have spent hours trying to trouble shoot, but I cannot do anything - I've tried everything imaginable when they went dark. There are serious problems with the update fw process. Awful guides, in that bits, little bits are missing. After successfully updating the fw, with instructions in hand the process said something update successful. To activate power cycle. That last message was not mentioned in the tutorial, and didn't work properly. You have the option to exit the update program "yes," or later. Both do the same - nothing. I think around that point serious damage happened. But they lived on with while battery lasted, but blue tooth messages, and blue light only. It's very sloppy that this firmware is for Audeze which does have blue tooth, but the same is used for these Hyper X Cloud Orbit. It's obvious it's wrong because neither the cloud, or cloud s have blue tooth or any wireless. I checked on the internet and several sites after search for firmware problems etc existed but EVERYONE would not connect or gave an error. They have realized their mistake judging by this and took every such site down, even ones which were neither Audeze or Kingston! So, if you have them for gods sake don't update anything and you will have good sound, but not full potential. If you update, I suspect it will break them. Best to wait a few months until this is sorted out because everything is a mess. Audeze mixed with Kingston etc. I guess Kingston are stumped too because of net sites taken down. That's incredible to me. So, mine are dead. I cannot possibly recommend buying them until this is fully sorted out and announced. Very upset. I live in Japan so RMA is in therory possible, but the hassle, mailing costs etc mean I won't. I just know it would take ages, or never sent new ones causing more stress waiting. The potential is there (not yet). Wait to buy a few months. As for me, well I have expensive phones that are 100% dead. Think before purchase. Finally I'll just say that it's all a mess. Audeze have taken over when going on line to download and update, Kingstone is gone, except older versions, instuctions are not clear and not even correct. This is terrible all round. Sure the hardware would be good when fully functional, but without proper software, and critically firmware that doensn't work, and is for Audeze phones, not these (blue tooth??). Firmware can destroy the internals as in my case. Beware, look else where. (I gave two stars rather than one because I "heard the goodness for a few weeks without even full up to date firmware. So the second star is just for the hardware ONLY. Everything else is a big fail.;;Reviewed in the United States on October 7, 2019;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;New firmware destroys the phones.;;Andy;;;So far this headset is absolutely amazing. Compared to my old headset (HyperX revolver S) i feel like i can actually hear sounds a lot better and LOUDER because the revolvers were so damn quiet imo. Coming from an EX CL player on rainbow six siege i can personally say this headset is worth the money, then again i paid only $220 because of a giftcard. 1.) sound is nice and there are preset settings that seem to be nice ie. ballistics, footsteps etc, and the 8 channel 7.1 sound is what i am using currently in gaming 2.) microphone quality is a huge upgrade from the revolver S. According to my friends on discord they say my mic sounds high quality and clear! (My discord is able to go up to 128kbs in the channel so obviously slightly higher audio quality) 3.) pretty damn comfortable on my head but obviously everyone is different.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 13, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;My experience so far;;david ginsberg;;;This headset is absolutely game changing. I have tried many different headsets from multiple different companies. I have always been a fan of hyperx. I switched over to using audiophile headphones and a driver with a yeti mic about a year and a half ago. I wanted a good headset for gaming on my laptop while I’m on the go as well. This headset blew me away. It sounds like you can actually tell right where things are in games. I’ve also noticed sounds I didn’t notice when using other headsets or headphones. Due to all this, I’ve decided to use this as my daily driver over my professional audiophile headphones. The sound is identical if not better and with the 3D audio enhancement truely making all the difference there’s no reason not to use this headset. This makes me want to look more into other hyperx products as well since this headset is amazing from build quality to sound profile and the software it uses as well. Great job hyperx.;;Reviewed in the United States on October 5, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Best headset I’ve used.;;lane tunstall

They have realized their mistake judging by this and took every such site down, even ones which were neither Audeze or Kingston! So, if you have them for gods sake don't update anything and you will have good sound, but not full potential. If you update, I suspect it will break them. Best to wait a few months until this is sorted out because everything is a mess. Audeze mixed with Kingston etc. I guess Kingston are stumped too because of net sites taken down. That's incredible to me. So, mine are dead. I cannot possibly recommend buying them until this is fully sorted out and announced. Very upset. I live in Japan so RMA is in therory possible, but the hassle, mailing costs etc mean I won't. I just know it would take ages, or never sent new ones causing more stress waiting. The potential is there (not yet). Wait to buy a few months. As for me, well I have expensive phones that are 100% dead. Think before purchase. Finally I'll just say that it's all a mess. Audeze have taken over when going on line to download and update, Kingstone is gone, except older versions, instuctions are not clear and not even correct. This is terrible all round. Sure the hardware would be good when fully functional, but without proper software, and critically firmware that doensn't work, and is for Audeze phones, not these (blue tooth??). Firmware can destroy the internals as in my case. Beware, look else where. (I gave two stars rather than one because I "heard the goodness for a few weeks without even full up to date firmware. So the second star is just for the hardware ONLY. Everything else is a big fail.

My experience so far
So far this headset is absolutely amazing. Compared to my old headset (HyperX revolver S) i feel like i can actually hear sounds a lot better and LOUDER because the revolvers were so damn quiet imo. Coming from an EX CL player on rainbow six siege i can personally say this headset is worth the money, then again i paid only $220 because of a giftcard. 1.) sound is nice and there are preset settings that seem to be nice ie. ballistics, footsteps etc, and the 8 channel 7.1 sound is what i am using currently in gaming 2.) microphone quality is a huge upgrade from the revolver S. According to my friends on discord they say my mic sounds high quality and clear! (My discord is able to go up to 128kbs in the channel so obviously slightly higher audio quality) 3.) pretty damn comfortable on my head but obviously everyone is different.

Best headset I’ve used.
This headset is absolutely game changing. I have tried many different headsets from multiple different companies. I have always been a fan of hyperx. I switched over to using audiophile headphones and a driver with a yeti mic about a year and a half ago. I wanted a good headset for gaming on my laptop while I’m on the go as well. This headset blew me away. It sounds like you can actually tell right where things are in games. I’ve also noticed sounds I didn’t notice when using other headsets or headphones. Due to all this, I’ve decided to use this as my daily driver over my professional audiophile headphones. The sound is identical if not better and with the 3D audio enhancement truely making all the difference there’s no reason not to use this headset. This makes me want to look more into other hyperx products as well since this headset is amazing from build quality to sound profile and the software it uses as well. Great job hyperx.

Best headset I've owned, bar none
Holy crap. Best headset I've ever had. History: I'm strictly a PC gamer. Been on the hunt for a new headset after my old Logitech Artemis Spectrum G933 started shorting out. After a lot of research I tried the SteelSeries Arctis 7 (2019 edition), SteelSeries Arctis Pro + GameDAC, and the new Logitech G Pro X. The SteelSeries Arctis 7 had bad sound quality - I couldn't get any decent sound from it even with EQ. Unimpressed. The Arctis Pro was much better, but the GameDAC is crap - anything other than Flat EQ setting caused popping noises after audio stopped, and the surround feature sounds horrible. The headset seems to go into an inactive mode after 10 seconds of no audio, causing a digital popping sound if the EQ isn't set to flat. Also, to get decent sound out of them I had to run Equalizer APO + Peace to get even remotely close to good sound. The GameDAC EQ settings are decent, but again, if you use them you get a wonderful popping sound any time audio ends after 10 seconds. The Logitech G Pro X wasn't bad, but it was hollow and lacked the immersion I like for gaming and music. The mic on that thing is great though. The G Pro X would be my choice for a cheaper headset. ====== Enter the HyperX Cloud Orbit S. This headset sounds phenomenal out of the box, no EQ required. That said, it does come with plenty of EQ presents which I'm playing around with, however I find the "Default" EQ the best sounding for everything from games to music. This also happens to be the EQ it comes set on out of the box. The other EQ options are very well done, with no distortion. The "Warm" setting is a great bass boost for those who like a bit more power to the bass end. The "S" version includes head tracking technology which will virtually simulate a real "room" in which you are listening to audio, changing the sound when you move your head. It's extremely accurate and does exactly what it says it will do. While cool, I don't find a real use for it, as I prefer my audio to be based on my character's actual location in games, not my own head. For music, if you want to pretend you're in a concert hall, it's awesome. The non-S version lacks this feature and is a little cheaper. The 3D audio feature is unparalleled. I have never used the virtual surround feature in any past headset, since it tends to just degrade the sound quality and sound awful. This is the first headset where I actually ENJOY the 3D setting in games AND music. It opens up a wonderful soundstage that sounds like you're sitting in the audience of a live concert. I've spent several hours switching 3D audio on and off listening to music and in games. It will come down to personal preference, but I'm thoroughly impressed. Even without the gimmicky head-tracking tech, the 3D audio is nothing less than astounding. Comfort, not a problem. Reviews say the Arctis series is more comfortable with the ski-goggle strap style, which I actually really did like. This headset is perfectly comfortable though, and I forget I have it on. The memory foam headband and ear cups don't get too hot. Some reviewers complain about the weight. I do not find this headset overly heavy at all, especially after taking a little time to adjust it to sit properly on my head. It has more than enough extension to accommodate larger heads. The microphone is good. Some people mention that it is too quiet, however with proper positioning it is very clear and loud. You just have to make sure it's pointed the right way. The cons I can come up with: - Cannot control mic sidetone. Audeze states if the mic gain is set to less than 44% in the software, the sidetone is disabled, and this is true. I've never been a fan of microphone sidetone anyway, so I wish we could turn this off completely and still set microphone gain to 100%. - There is an EVER so slight "white noise" when no audio is playing. It's less of a sound or hiss than a "feeling." I can tell if the headset is on and nothing is playing - it's not an empty void of sound. This is hardly a con though. As soon as any audio is playing this is completely masked an unnoticeable. This sound floor is to be expected with any active amp headset, as I understand. - It's not wireless. Maybe in the future they will come out with a wireless version, however I do believe the pros of a wired connection (latency/sound quality/battery issues) outweighs wireless since I just sit at my PC desk anyway. - The "voice" prompts when switching EQ settings. This headset comes with preset EQ options, and when switching between them it feels the need to vocally announce which EQ setting you are choosing. This makes it somewhat difficult to compare the EQ presets, since you have to wait for a voice to announce this setting between options. I much prefer an instant switch where I can really tell how the sound is changing. This could easily be fixed in a future software/firmware update. - EQ. There is no option for a custom EQ, and the preset settings don't show what the EQ is actually doing. Again, easily fixed in a future software version I hope. Everything considered, this blows every Logitech and SteelSeries headset I've tried out of the water. I'm extremely satisfied and recommend this headset to anyone who can afford it. It's worth the extra $$$.

New firmware destroys the phones.
When I first got these they were fine. I was using older firmware, and the older software app. Even though I was running basic fw, with windows generic drivers only, it was clear these phones are wonderful in terms of sound. Clarity, picking up details in games (one DSP setting is called "ballistics" which is best for FPS) There are several others too, plus default and flat. All three modes worked, and the Hi Res, really was hi Res. The 7.1 surround was also well implemented. I was so glad because I knew when I install the latest firmware (which links to Audeze, not Hper x anymore) and the new software panel it could only get better. I had three weeks of good use. Then the trouble began. I updated the fw carefully and the software (all audeze branded). Strangly the red charging light was never to be seen again. It was permanently blue. The firmware "speaker lady" informs us of status, such as "3D on" "Hig res" all good, but I had a blue tooth comment from the speaker lady when not connected to USB, I always use USB by the way, that was when making sure they were charging. They didn't. I followed the instructions slowly and meticulously. It's possible I made some mistake but I seriously doubt it. The phones worked (with blue light only, and no charging) for a few days, but functionality was degraded. In the end they totally stopped working. They are dead. Plug in, nothing. Charge by proper usb adaptor. Press lots of buttons dead. Just before they finally died I checked the software and ALL three fw sections said NO firmware. It was 100% wiped. I thought firmware would remain even if the battery fully discharged. But no matter what I do nothing happens. As they are essentially a dead usb wire to my PC now cannot use any software. They are well and truely wiped (and firmware wiping can cause permanent damage, unlike driver or software mistakes. I have spent hours trying to trouble shoot, but I cannot do anything - I've tried everything imaginable when they went dark. There are serious problems with the update fw process. Awful guides, in that bits, little bits are missing. After successfully updating the fw, with instructions in hand the process said something update successful. To activate power cycle. That last message was not mentioned in the tutorial, and didn't work properly. You have the option to exit the update program "yes," or later. Both do the same - nothing. I think around that point serious damage happened. But they lived on with while battery lasted, but blue tooth messages, and blue light only. It's very sloppy that this firmware is for Audeze which does have blue tooth, but the same is used for these Hyper X Cloud Orbit. It's obvious it's wrong because neither the cloud, or cloud s have blue tooth or any wireless. I checked on the internet and several sites after search for firmware problems etc existed but EVERYONE would not connect or gave an error. They have realized their mistake judging by this and took every such site down, even ones which were neither Audeze or Kingston!
