Dou­ble cham­bered good­ness

PCPOWERPLAY - - Upgrade -

HyperX’s new Cloud Alpha gam­ing head­phones have been in de­vel­op­ment for two years - which, we guess, means one year spent per cham­ber, as the Cloud Alpha’s main fea­ture is a dual-cham­ber de­sign to de­liver im­proved au­dio qual­ity.

“The new HyperX Cloud Alpha is the first gam­ing head­set to in­clude our dual cham­ber tech­nol­ogy to de­liver un­ri­valled sound qual­ity,” said Tyler Nee­dles, global au­dio busi­ness man­ager, HyperX, in a press re­lease. “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.”

The head­phones also boast 50mm driv­ers, and the two cham­bers sep­a­rate bass notes from the mid­dle and high ranges. Me­mory foam earcups make for com­fort­able, long, gam­ing ses­sions, and a wider head­band also helps in the com­fort de­part­ment. There’s a de­tach­able cable with in-line con­trols, and the Mic is Team­s­peak and Dis­cord cer­ti­fied.

The Cloud Alpha will be avail­able on Septem­ber 25, and re­tail for $US99.99.
