HyperX says the Cloud Alpha new headset “maintains the DNA” of its previous models – which had a focus on avoiding that top-of-the-head headache an hour into your session with super comfy memory foam – but this is the company’s first gaming headset with dual chamber technology, so the audio quality should be a whole lot better.
Basically, the dual chambers mean the headset can separate the bass from the mids and highs, so what you get is far more dynamic audio, with reduced distortion.
The headset has an aluminum frame, wider headband and a detachable cable with in-line audio control to adjust volume and mute the microphone.
Compatible for with PC, PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One S, Mac, Mobile, Nintendo Switch, and other virtual reality systems with 3.5mm ports, the Cloud Alpha is TeamSpeakT and Discord Certified as well.
You can pick one up on pre-order for $169 from JB Hi Fi until September 25 (if you pre-order you get a case with it, too – that’s ‘while stocks last’ deal, though.) It’ll be available on October 2.
