HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset with Dual Chamber Technology

Everyone of us has a gamer inside, somewhere hidden, waiting for the time to let lose itself. While some people tend to move away from this particular personality of them, as they grow older, still there are some of us who fight hard to keep the gamer in us, alive. To be honest, gaming in this age of time has become an expensive habit, and not all of us are able to afford those fancy consoles & computer hardware or accessories required to keep with the current gaming trend and true-to-life games. Thanks to brands like HyperX and their team, who are constantly trying to bring the latest in technology & gaming to the users, in a more pocket friendly way. While to some people, even this pocket-friendly budget will seem like a lot, but friends, we're talking about reasonableness of it. 


Recently I was invited by HyperX, to a demonstration event which they organized in association with Cezor in Mumbai. The whole idea was to showcase their newly launched product HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming headset, to the gaming community. Along with that, the gamers (present at the event) were given the opportunity to experience the headset in action, while playing trendy games like Counter Strike Global Offense and PUBG, on powerful gaming setups. Today we'll be discussing about the HyperX Cloud Alpha gaming headset in detail.

Dual Chamber Technology

HyperX Cloud Alpha are said to be the World's first gaming headset to come with Dual Chamber Technology. According to HyperX, this technology delivers a noticeable premium-ness and an unmatched gaming experience. The headset features Dual chambers, which separate the Bass & treble part, delivering pure and unmatched sound. This technology comes in handy while playing First Person Shooter (FPS) games, whereas the player will be able to easily distinguish the sound of footsteps & other vital signs (treble) even if there is a lot of bullet fires & explosions around (bass). The Dual chamber technology gives you an immersive experience in terms of audio. 


Dual Chamber Technology offers enhanced audio experience, by separating the driver chambers, the user is able to hear pure sound with less distortion. HyperX Cloud Alpha comes with 50 mm drivers, and the dual chamber design allows the headset to tune the bass frequencies separate from the mids and highs, creating a dynamic sound that makes gaming, music and movies more realistic and immersive.
Mr. Vishal Parekh, Marketing Director, India, Kingston Technology said, "We try to help the Indian gaming community grow, with quality products,with quality gaming platforms and with best service. Ever since the launch of our Alpha headset, we received numerous requests from partners and gamers who were keen to experience these. And we could see that from the number of gamers who flocked for the event with our partner. We would continue to provide such a platform to our partners in the ecosystem to connect with the community at large.”
Design & Comfort

Talking about the design, construction and comfort, I personally found Cloud Alpha headset very comfortable and ideal for long gaming sessions. The ear cup padding is made of HyperX signature memory foam, which sits comfortably over your ears, shaping them the way your ears are naturally. 


The ear cups have pliable leather covers on top of the memory foam, which gives the headset, a premium look and also prevents chipping-off of the ear padding, these leather padding is much more durable than what we see on other gaming headsets in this budget. The headband is durable, twist-able and lightweight, you don't feel them when wearing. The headband is made up of an aluminum frame which keeps it light and strong. 

Microphone, Cable & Compatibility

The cable on HyperX Cloud Alpha gaming headset is detachable and comes with inline controls like volume switch, mute microphone switch etc. You also get a detachable microphone with the headset. 


The HyperX Cloud Alpha headset is compatible across multiple platforms like PC, PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One S 1, Mac, Mobile, Nintendo Switch and other VR systems with 3.5 mm connection.
