HyperX Unveils The New Cloud Alpha Headset

HyperX is a well-known company when it comes to various PC gaming components. The manufacturer has released everything from headsets, keyboards, memory, to mice. Today, thanks to a press release that was sent over, we’ve found out that the company has unveiled their latest headset, the Cloud Alpha.

The Cloud Alpha will be their fourth latest headset iteration with a new unique take on how they position the drivers. Instead of tossing them in the ear cups together, HyperX has designed a new chamber which will allow the drivers to be separated.

Essentially, the drivers will be split into two chambers, ultimately this will separate the high and mids from the bass.

“The new HyperX Cloud Alpha is the first gaming headset to include our dual chamber technology to deliver unrivaled sound quality,” said Tyler Needles, global audio business manager, HyperX. “Designed and tested in the HyperX labs, Cloud Alpha delivers the best possible audio performance, comfort, and build quality for the ultimate competitive advantage and will be used by top eSports pros globally.”

According to HyperX, this will allow for less distortion and instead will offer an even better clean sound during gameplay. Though, how well it stacks up to their statements remain to be seen as the headset will not be released into the market until September 25, 2017.

Outside of the drivers, you can expect a detachable braided cable, inline audio controls, a detachable noise canceling microphone along with an aluminum frame. Likewise, the headset can connect to a standard 2.5mm port such as a smartphone if you’re interested in converting the headset into standard headphones.
