Con Short 3,5mm cable
The cable of the HyperX II is split up in two parts. The headset itself has a 43 inch (110 cm) cable, which can be a little bit on the short side depending on where your audio-ports are located. If you use the full length of the headset with a USB-port, the full length equals to around 10 feet (305 cm).
Con Feels tight on the head
The ear cups provide a lot of pressure which makes the headset feel tight on your head and can cause discomfort when using the HyperX Cloud II in longer sessions.
