HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset: Gaming in stereo has never sounded so good
- Extra comfy
- Dual chamber design
- Very similar design if you've already own a HyperX headset
- Only 2.1-channel stereo sound
HyperX's Cloud Alpha gaming headset feels like it might be their best effort yet. Even if it is also their most expensive.
Price$ 169.00 (AUD)
As mentioned above, I’ve pretty much relied on the original HyperX Cloud headphone for my own gaming experiences for the better part of the last year - and the difference in sound quality between them and the new Cloud Alpha headphones was genuinely really impressive.
Not only did audio sound much crisper. The dual-chamber audio of the Alpha whittling distortion down to a surprisingly strong degree. While the Cloud Alpha doesn’t support the 7.1 surround setups you’ll find in some of the other top-of-the-line gaming headphones out there, it honestly doesn’t feel like you’re missing out. Even if it is just classic 2-channel stereo sound, it sounds great enough that you won’t begrudge it.
In addition, the Cloud Alpha headphones felt like they actively hugged my ears in a way which worked to better isolate me from outside sound. It’s by no means anything on the level of proper, full blown noise-cancellation setup. However, it does feel like it does a surprisingly good job of keeping you “in the game” by filtering outside any exterior distractions and ambient noise.
The Bottom Line
Like a lot of their previous products, I have little but praise for the HyperX’s new Cloud Alpha gaming headphones. Generally speaking, they’re the best gaming headset the brand have added to their roster yet.
If you think the hype around the dual-chambered design sounds good, let me tell you, the real thing sounds even better.
HyperX Cloud Alpha is available in Australia at an RRP of AUD $169.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
