Hyperx Cloud Alpha

If you look into the gaming industry or the market, itself. You will realise that one headphone manufacturer that is synonymous and consistent with their quality happens to be HyperX.

Over the past couple of years, we have used countless HyperX headphones, and we can tell you that they speak quality through and through.

Granted, you might want to use something different but that is going to be your personal preference. With that out of the way, the headphones we are looking at today are the HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro. They are one of the best headsets we have had the chance to review for some time.

Let’s find out what they are all about.

Design 

When you are talking about design language on a pair of gaming headphones, you might end up expecting some strange angular design that comes from the future. However, that has never been the case with HyperX headphones.

As a matter of fact, when you do look at the HyperX Cloud Alpha gaming headset, the headphones are simple and elegant.

They do have the traditional markings of a gaming headset like the HyperX logo on the earcup, or the red accents, but other than that, there is absolutely no way to tell that these headphones are made for gaming. 

As a matter of fact, if you give these headphones in all black, you might not be able to tell if they are gaming headphones, in the first place.

Aside from the design, another great quality of these headphones is the overall construction as these happen to be one of the most solidly built pair of headphones I have used in a long time. They are definitely on par with some of the more expensive options that you will see in the market.

Comfort

Now the thing about comfort and gaming headphones in general are something that have to be comfortable.

Why? Because gamers tend to spend a lot of time wearing them for the sake of gaming and in such situations, they want something they can wear for longer periods of time without any issue that might become a problem for them.

Thankfully, when you are looking at the overall level of comfort on the HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro, you would be glad to know that the headphones are on par with some of the best available in the market. You will feel a lot better knowing that you can wear them for hours without feeling any unease.

I believe this is definitely one of those things that most people actually look for. 

So, in terms of comfort, the HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro are hard to beat. The comfort is on point and I can easily recommend these headphones to anyone who is planning on something that they can wear for longer hours.

Performance 

In the past, the great thing about the HyperX headphones has been their overall performance; whether you are talking about the microphone or the sound quality in general. That has not changed a bit even today.

The great thing about the HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro is the fact that it is one of the best performers in terms of the overall sound quality. Everything is clean, and there is no digital processing, which means that if you are using it with a good audio setup, you are going to get one of the best audio experiences that you could think of.

Moving onto the microphone, this is where most gaming headphones actually fall flat. Simply because the built-in microphone, more often than not, is not as good as so many gamers would prefer. However, that is not the case here, either.

The microphone on the HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro is actually pretty decent.

Now when I say decent, I don’t mean that you will be able to do voice overs with this microphone, but if you are looking for something that will allow you to chat with your teammates without any distortion or other issues coming in in the way, this is the way to go.

Last but not the least, I would also like to point out the fact that the isolation on these headphones is great. While many people do not pay attention to this factor simply because they think of it as rudimentary, even unnecessary, but in reality, having good isolation is one of the most important factors.

Overall, as far as the overall performance is concerned, really cannot complain about the headphones as they do manage to check out all the boxes.

Conclusion 

In conclusion, I would only say that HyperX has really knocked the ball out of the park with the Cloud Alpha Pro.

This pair of headphones is by far one of the best performers in the market, and the best part is that you really do not have to worry about most of the factors about this, either. Since the performance is such a good thing about this headphones, as well as pretty much every single factor.s
