Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset - Gun Metal
53mm Drivers, Microphone, USB & 3.5mm Connections
Recommended usage What the product should be used for, and how it should be used (e.g. ambient temperature).
Headset type A headset is headphones combined with a microphone, or one headphone with a microphone. Headsets provide the equivalent functionality of a telephone handset but with hands-free operation. Types of headsets include single earpiece (monaural) and double earpiece.
Control unit type
External control unit
Plug and Play Indicates whether this product supports is "plug and play". Plug and play is hardware or software that, after being installed ("plugged in"), can immediately be used ("played with"), as opposed to hardware or software which requires configuration.
Ports & interfaces
Connectivity technology The technology that enables connectivity of the device, e.g. wired or wireless.

Ear coupling Ear coupling describes the way in which headphones or earphones stay attached to, or inside, the ear. There are three common types of ear coupling: circumaural, supra-aural and intra-aural. Circumaural headphones enclose your ears with large pads that suppress external noise. Supra-aural headphones are typically more lightweight and sit on top of the ears with small pads. Intra-aural headphones come in two basic designs and neither style sits on the head itself. The first are ear buds, which sit just outside of the ear canal, on top of your ear lobes. The second type is actually inserted directly into the ear canal and offers some external noise suppression.

Impedance The effective resistance of an electric circuit or component to alternating current, arising from the combined effects of ohmic resistance and reactance.
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) Total harmonic distortion is a measure of non-linear harmonic distortion and is given in %. Non-linear harmonic distortions are signals which were not present in the original before the signal was converted by the headphones. These unwanted signals are caused by the diaphragm, whose movements do not precisely move in time with the electric signals that cause it to move. Unfortunately, this is a feature of all electroacoustic transducers. Although it cannot be completely eliminated, suitable steps can be taken to minimise it. However, the user is not interested in why this distortion takes place but in how great the level of distortion must be for it to become perceptible. According to the findings of several research projects, a total harmonic distortion of 1% in the frequency range of 100 to 2000 Hz is imperceptible. Below 100 Hz, the perceptibility threshold lies at 10%.
Microphone frequency The range of frequencies (low to high sounds) that the microphone can pick up (detect).
50 - 18000 Hz

Operating principle This principle refers to the basic design of the headphones i.e. the way the headsets couple to our ears and whether the back of the headphone part of the headset is open to the outside world or sealed against it. It can be in the ear (earbuds), on the ear (superaural) or over the ear (circumaural) and Open, Closed or Semi-open.
