A wired headset, the HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Wired Stereo Gaming Headset maintains its comfort by offering an over-ear design that utilizes memory foam so it feels good around your ears. There’s an adjustable headband, too, so you can easily tweak things so that the headset feels right around your head, no matter what size your skull is. When it comes to sound quality, the HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro uses a dual-chamber driver system that separates the bass from the mids and highs allowing them to be tuned individually for the minimum of distortion.
Elsewhere, there’s an in-line volume adjustment and mic muting button, plus you can detach the microphone any time that you’d prefer to use the HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro for listening to music or playing single-player games. It also comes with a carrying pouch which is useful if you plan on taking them to a friend’s house.
