The HyperX Cloud Alpha offers a winning mix of affordability, comfort, and outstanding audio quality. The dual-chamber driver design produces superior sound, but I do wish Kingston didn’t do away with the 7.1 surround sound found on the Cloud II. Also on my wishlist is for Kingston to develop a wireless version of the headset. Still, you’d be hard pressed to find a better sounding, more comfortable headset than the Cloud Alpha for the price. Unless, of course, you opt for the HyperX Cloud II and its convincing 7.1 virtual surround sound.
