HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless Review


Powerful, crisp sound ; Excellent mic ; DTS Headphone:X simulated surround works well

Primarily for PC, with no wired connections ; Scooped sound signature requires using EQ presets to get the best performance

The HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless is an excellent wireless gaming headset. It excels where it counts, in audio quality, but don't try to use it with anything besides a PC.

HyperX Cloud Alpha review: One of the best gaming headsets for the money


HyperX has released a half-dozen headsets since 2014's original and acclaimed Cloud design, but the Alpha is the first to match—and even surpass—its predecessor.

Fully removable cabling and smarter inline control placement ; Comfortable ; Excellent audio quality, for the price

More expensive than the original Cloud, with fewer accessories ; Upper audio range can be a bit muddled

All that said, the Cloud Alpha is one of the best headsets for the money and a proper successor to the original Cloud. It’s just as comfortable, just as durable, with ever-so-slightly-better audio fidelity and significantly better cabling. My...

HyperX Cloud Alpha Review


The HyperX Cloud Alpha are good wired gaming headphones. They have a fairly well-balanced sound profile, though they're quite susceptible to fit, seal, and posit...

Decently well-balanced sound profile. Good microphone with great noise handling. Detachable boom mic. Very well-built and comfortable design.

Slightly bulky. Limited control scheme. Not the most stable; only suitable for light jogs or runs. Poor noise isolation. Bass delivery varies significantly across users. Sensitive to glasses.

The HyperX Cloud Alpha are decent headphones for neutral sound listening. Their sound profile is fairly well-balanced, though their recessed low/mid-treble ranges cause some sounds to be dull, lispy, and lacking in detail. Like with most bulky over-ear...
