            The SteelSeries Arctis 5 2019 Edition are slightly better-wired gaming headphones than the HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II. They have a very nice gaming software that allows lots of customization and control over the headset. Also, their sound quality is better than the HyperX's, especially in the treble range.
