HyperX’s wireless gaming headset Cloud Alpha is known for its light weight and 300-hour battery life, creating a gaming headset that will not cause discomfort for players to wear for a long time.
Cloud Alpha wireless gaming headset maintains the consistent wearing comfort of the series, featuring a lightweight 298g (without microphone), with 2.4GHz wireless transmission technology and 300 hours of battery life, and can be used across multiple platforms.
Looking at the basic specifications of the headset, the Cloud Alpha’s driver unit uses a special 50mm moving coil neodymium magnet, the frequency is about 13Hz-27,000Hz, and the impedance is 65 Ω.
Cloud Alpha packaging accessories include a detachable 3.5mm microphone, a detachable headphone cable, and a 2.4GHz wireless receiver, which are basically all that should be given.
The headset itself has only two buttons and a scroll wheel. The microphone, transmission line holes and physical buttons are all on the left side, and there is only a volume scroll wheel on the right side. The Cloud Alpha button design has only two types of power and mute. As the name suggests, it is used to switch the microphone switch, and can also switch the monitoring function.
In addition, the two buttons are also different in appearance design, with one high and one low button configuration to inform the player of the button function, to prevent the player from accidentally touching or pressing the wrong button.
Inheriting the consistent spirit of the series of headphones, Cloud Alpha’s headwear design is also made of synthetic leather covered with foam material, and the concept of stitching is used to close the joints.
In order to make the headset durable and lightweight at the same time, the Cloud Alpha body frame material uses aluminum alloy, with a relatively light material as the main skeleton structure.
Cloud Alpha delivers detailed sound performance with built-in DTS Headphone:X spatial audio technology, and an advanced dual-chamber driver unit delivers more accurate and stunningly clear sound in games.
The dual-tone cavity technology mentioned above is simply composed of a dedicated sound cavity for bass and another independent sound cavity for mid-range and treble. Changes are more distinct and clear.
The headset adopts a 50mm diameter driver unit. The detachable noise-cancelling microphone has Discord and TeamSpeak certification and can also reduce noise. There is an LED mute indicator on the front of the microphone, which can be used to identify the current state of the microphone.
It is understood that the Cloud Alpha transmission protocol uses 2.4GHz wireless transmission technology with a maximum transmission range of 20 meters, bringing players a free and unfettered gaming experience without sacrificing sound quality.
Based on the 2.4GHz transmission protocol adopted by the Cloud Alpha itself, it means that the headset itself can be applied to platforms such as PC, PS4, and Xbox, and is plug-and-play.
In addition, players can also use HyperX’s own NGENUITY software to confirm the remaining power, adjust the equalizer and other custom functions, such as the headset will automatically shut down if it is not used for a long time.
The actual wearing performance of the Cloud Alpha is due to the lightweight design of the headset body, and there is not much discomfort in the case of continuous use for 4 hours. Considering that the summer is coming to Taiwan, the headset must be used for 4 hours. Some common problems “the earmuff cover is stuffy” phenomenon is almost inevitable.
Others are used with various types of games, or connected to voice software such as Discord. The performance of Cloud Alpha is remarkable, not only the sound is clear, but also the sound quality is quite good.
