  • Solid soun, Reasonable pric, Wide compatibility
  • Imperfect fi, Hard-to-reach butto, No hardware volume controls

  • While the Cloud II couldn't claim the overall top score, it is still one of our absolute favorites when it comes to these products. It did well across the board, delivering a great performance at an even better price. While some other products have slight...

  • The Cloud II's are rated at less than 2% Total Harmonic Distortion . In simplistic terms, this is how accurate the equipment is in reproducing audio and how much the sound can be distorted from the source material. In the realms of audiophile equipment...
