HyperX Cloud Alpha

HyperX Cloud Alpha gaming headset

Kingstons gaming brand, HyperX adds a new headset to its portfolio. The headset is called HyperX Cloud Alpha and must be distinguished from its predecessors by the presence of dual chamber 50mm drivers, which, according to the manufacturer, should ensure that the headset is better capable of low, middle and high tones to separate from each other.

HyperX Cloud Alpha

The Cloud Alpha has an aluminum frame and offers a frequency range of 50 to 18,000 Hz. Both the noise cancelling microphone and the connecting cable are removable. The cable has in-line controls and has a braided finish. At the end there is a single 3.5 mm jack, which allows for connection to game consoles and mobile devices. A 3.5 mm splitter and extension cable are included in the box.

The HyperX Cloud Alpha is available from September 25 and offers a retail price of 99.99 USD
