HyperX Cloud Alpha


One of the best gaming headsets available. HyperX Cloud Alpha.

Class leading audio ; Fantastic build quality ; Top notch microphone ; Extremely comfortable

Audio quality is DAC dependant ; No surround sound ; Only one colour choice ; Spare earpads aren't included

The best analogue gaming headset you can buy under £100

HyperX Cloud Alpha review


Solid stereo sound tuned specifically for PC gaming

Improved looks and comfort ; Defined mid-tones ; Booming bass

Muddled lows

HyperX’s new mid-range gaming headset feels perfectly tuned for PC gaming to its benefit – and its detriment.

HyperX's Cloud Alpha is as comfy as gaming headsets get


Dual-chamber audio, an affordable price and comfortable earmuffs? HyperX's Cloud Alpha is a nifty deal.

Kingston HyperX Cloud Alpha Headset Review: Near-Perfect At $100


Kingston HyperX Cloud Alpha is intended to round out the company's portfolio with a higher-end headset offering priced at $100. Similar to Logitech's G Pro, this headset employs something called dual-chamber technology. In short, it places the drivers...

Although we don't expect perfection from a $100 gaming headset, the HyperX Cloud Alpha's sound quality comes close. Moreover, Kingston uses reasonably high-quality materials put together in a solid way. Our award is well-deserved.

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...

Kingston HyperX Cloud Alpha gaming headset review: Calling all gamers


Kingston has a history of building great peripherals and the HyperX Cloud Alpha doesn't disappoint.

Well built with great sound quality


At Rs 8,799 in India, the Kingston HyperX Cloud Alpha is certainly not cheap. It’s not an impulse purchase. However, if you’re a gamer and if you spend any length of time gaming competitively, this is a set that you will appreciate.
