Good gaming headsets are the ones that deliver an immersive gaming experience without compromising on build quality and comfort. The Cloud Alpha manages to tick everything off the list becoming a great choice for hardcore gamers looking for a gaming headset. As always, the Cloud series of headphones have shown brilliant build quality that will last you for a long time. The aluminium frame keeps the headset lightweight and flexible while maintaining a sturdy structure. Its sturdiness is extended to the earcups and the flexible microphone. From the cables to the earcup memory foam, there wasn’t any compromise in build quality.
HyperX is highlighting the new dual-chamber design in their earcups. It ensures that the bass frequencies are separated from the highs and mids. Essentially, HyperX has tuned the drivers to ensure that the bass frequencies escape into a second chamber. This should make these sound frequencies distinguishable from each other and reduce the muddy nature of its previous Cloud headsets. The real-world listening experience might be minimal unless you’ve been closely using the previous headsets. Conclusively, the Cloud Alpha performs great in both gaming and music. We were able to distinguish the footsteps from gunshots and explosions in the background. They sounded crisp and hence, they were easy to locate.
Microphone performance was also impressive and it sounded more towards the neutral side. Of course, there’s some enhancement to boost your voice, but it’s only advantageous in voice communication. You can plug the headset into your PC, consoles and mobile devices. Most of the smartphones can drive the headset and the cables are long enough to suit your needs. HyperX’s Cloud series of headsets have always been regarded as high-end solutions for hardcore gamers. The Cloud Alpha does continue its legacy but we think that it’s slightly overpriced at this point.
