About the Product
HyperX™ Cloud Alpha’s groundbreaking Dual Chamber Drivers design will give your audio more distinction and clarity by reducing the distortion. The dual chambers separate the bass from the mids and highs, allowing optimal tuning for cleaner, smoother sound. The Cloud Alpha headset builds upon HyperX’s foundation of signature award-winning comfort with premium red memory foam, expanded headband and softer, more pliable leatherette. The durable aluminum frame can take the rigors of daily play, and per player request, Cloud Alpha also features a tough, detachable braided cable. The detachable noise-cancellation microphone is certified by Discord and TeamSpeak™, ensuring you’ll have great team communication. It’s also multi-platform compatible with in-line audio controls, so serious gamers on PC, PS4™, Xbox One™ and other platforms with a 3.5mm port will benefit from the bold sound of the Cloud Alpha evolution.
The HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset is a step up from the previous HyperX Cloud models. Under the fancy shell, HyperX finally introduced a dual chamber design for the drivers. This basically means less distortion and better separation between frequency ranges.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset - White/Purple - Limited Edition for PC, PS4 & Xbox One, Nintendo Switch
  • If I was going to wear it for hours while playing, it better feel like soft clouds are resting on my ears. The cushioning is great on these headphones-- really comfortable and ergonomic.
  • I am a huge fan of this headset. It is very comfortable and doesn't get hot even after hours of gaming.
  • They are also super comfortable! They are padded with nice pleather, and the rubber coating the cords seemed like it would hold up very well to daily wear and tear.
  • The earcups and cushions felt good even after being around my ears (yes, they are over-ear) and didn't make my ears feel sweaty.
  • I cannot wear them for long periods of time without feeling extreme discomfort. After a while the drivers basically rub against your ears causing pain.
HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset, Red
  • The ear cups are very comfy, but like a lot of people my ears press against the drivers inside, making them uncomfortable after a while.
  • The headset has a comfortable memory foam headband and has two different types of ear cups: leather cups and foam cups.
  • The headset size is adjustable to fit all sizes of heads by pulling down the ear cups from the headband.
  • This headset is very light and you almost forget you have them one. There is enough space for my ears and the padding on top is very soft.
  • The pads are also really soft, spent many hours raiding with them on and still comfy.
  • The headset is so lose fitting that its a cause of frequent adjustment in the sizing of the headset and the ear pads are flaking off the glued on fake leather like material.

What customers say about "Headset"
HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset - White/Purple - Limited Edition for PC, PS4 & Xbox One, Nintendo Switch
  • I primarily used these in a racing game and was impressed by the depth and clarity of sound that came through. The sound stage felt omni-directional and the bass was GOOD.
  • Very crisp and clear sound and it is insulating enough that it partially blocks out noise from the outside.
  • The sound quality is great, gun shots and footsteps are crisp and clear, and the bass is strong without being overpowering.
  • The headphones are incredible crisp making it easier to hear things like foot steps, making it easier to know where other players are.
  • I absolutely love these things! They have a great sound quality, seriously, playing a racing game with these on makes you feel like you are actually at a racetrack.
HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset, Red
  • The sound quality from these headphones is great. I love listening to music on them and using them in games.
  • The sound of the headset is very clear and is especially good for competitive gaming. The bass is punchy.
  • The bass is clear and loud, the high ends sound clear and crisp even at 90-100% of max volume.
  • Ontop of great sound quality and great bass depth that wont peak out means for the price its pretty dam fantastic.
  • The voice quality is incredibly crisp and clear, as is the audio quality in the headphones.
  • Sound wise, these do bring out some of the less obvious sounds, but, they do sound considerably more 'dull'.

What customers say about "Microphone"
HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset - White/Purple - Limited Edition for PC, PS4 & Xbox One, Nintendo Switch
  • The microphone is also much clearer, so I don't have to yell into it just to be heard anymore.
  • The microphone works really well, and I really appreciate the feature that allows you to mute and change the volume of the headphones without touching your device.
  • Microphone is good with good noise reduction.
HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset, Red
  • It is still a perfectly adaquete microphone but there are probably better microphone alternatives out there. For me, the microphone is plenty good enough.
  • The mic is detachable, so you can use just the stereo headphones plugged into your phone or MP3 player if you want or if you live stream with a static mic.
  • The microphone is detatchable which is a nice touch, especially if I am only using them to listen to music although the cap that you can cover the auxillery jack with is very easy to lose.
  • The detachable microphone is clean and clear, with a little cap so the input isn't left exposed all the time.
  • The microphone mute feature is very convenient and as I gamer myself I can say it is necessary sometimes.
  • The mic, however, is so sensitive all anyone could hear when I was in party chat was THEMSELVES!

HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset, Red
  • Hyper x has done an extremely good job with this product. The 30 hour battery life is no gimmick and they are true to their word!
  • This product is all about quality,... high quality frame, soft earcups, braided cable, in-line controls, detachable cable and mic, the stitching.
  • The battery only really lasts a day or two with prolonged usage, but they are fast to charge.
  • It conveniently comes with a splitter that allows the headphones to split into two seperate cables for the mic and headphones, which is great for when i'm using it with my PC.
  • They are not noise cancelling but suppress external noises very well.
