What reviewers liked

The Cloud Mix is equipped with two microphone options: You have the TeamSpeak gaming mic that's detachable and Discord Certified for game chat, as well as the internal built-in mic for Bluetooth mode.
Gamers will appreciate its comfort and sound quality, while their wallets will appreciate its relatively low price.
This set of cans features a remarkably lightweight yet firm frame, and soft memory-foam ear cushions with a delicate grip.
The solid metal construction gives this headset both a nice heft and a durability that’s unmatched in the sub-$100 range, while keeping the form factor slim and attractive.

What reviewers didn't like

It isn’t soundproof, so some louder audio bled out during Skype calls, but even with audio muted, I can barely hear the typically obnoxious clicking of my mechanical keyboard.
Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a studio-quality set of headphones. It’s a mite heavy on the bass (though less than most gaming headsets) and the high-end sounds a little slick.
