HyperX Cloud Alpha Review

7 out of 10

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 from the list, thus, becoming a great choice for gaming headset. As always, the cloud series of headphones have shown brilliant build quality.

The aluminium frame keeps the headset lightweight and flexible, while maintaining a sturday structure. Its sturdiness is extended to the ear-cups and flexible microphone. From the cable to the ear-cup memory foam, there wasn’t any compromise in build quality.

HyperX is highlighting the new dual-chamber design in their ear-cups. It ensures that the bass frequencies are separated from the highs and mids. Essentially, HyperX has turned the drivers to ensure that the bass frequencies escape in to a second chamber. This should make these sound frequencies distinguishable from each other and reduce the muddy nature of the previous cloud headsets.

Conclusively, the cloud Alpha performs great in gaming and music. We were able to distinguish the footsteps from gun shoots 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. The only downside is that its expensive.
