About the HyperX Cloud Alpha™ S
High-quality gaming sound
High-quality gaming sound
Going wired is often the best way to ensure uncompromised audio, free of lag or interference. The HyperX Cloud Alpha S provides the reliability of a wired connection with rich, detailed sound that helps your games come alive. The headset's closed-back, over-the-ear design keeps out distracting noise, helping you focus and immerse yourself in the action onscreen. These headphones look as sharp as they sound too, with cool blue and black that really catch the eye.
If you're going to play for long sessions or need headphones for remote work or online courses, the Cloud Alpha S 'phones are a great pick. They're lightweight and comfortable, with a soft memory foam headband and earpads that fit snugly and securely without weighing down your head or clamping down like a vice. The aluminum frame is flexible and durable, designed to withstand consistent use.
Keep your competitive edge
When I'm running around the Dark Zone in the The Division 2, the last thing I want is to be caught unawares while searching for sweet loot. The rat-a-tat of bullets around the corner can tip me off to the location of another team, letting me bypass them entirely or lie in wait myself.
The Cloud Alpha S delivers accurate sound directionality that pulls you into the game and improves your situational awareness. That makes it easy to place audio cues in the game world, keeping you on your toes (or fingers, I suppose).
Works with about everything
The Cloud Alpha S headset uses a simple stereo minijack connection. This lets them hook right into your PC, most mobile devices, and the vast majority of gaming controllers on the market. They'll plug right into current and next-gen PlayStation and Xbox controllers, and most pro-style Nintendo Switch controllers. If you play video games, chances are you'll be able to take advantage of the Cloud Alpha S.
Enhanced sound and control for PC and Mac
An advanced USB control box for PC and Mac helps you intuitively adjust the volume of both your game audio and voice chat. A built-in mixer lets you control these two independently, helping you balance communication with environment sounds on the fly. This way your chat isn't drowning out important audio cues or too low for you to catch warnings from your team. Either one can add a big "L" to your record pretty fast.
With the press of a button, you can also activate virtual 7.1 surround sound, giving you added depth and directionality. Audio cues then become easier to place in the environment, so you can pinpoint the soft shuffle of sneaking footsteps even faster.
