I have had these Cloud Alpha headsets now for about 3 weeks and have nothing but great things to say…. well maybe one minor gripe; the ear cups. However, a quick upgrade to the Brainwavz (red velour) ear cups have made a 200% difference in comfort! You barely even feel the headsets and they are still tight enough to feel solid on your head.
I have been using Astro A40s since 2013 and have often used some of my audiophile headphones when I wish to not use a microphone. Thus, I’ve never been truly happy with the A40 sound. They are muffled and lack fidelity and presence.
I tried these new Cloud Alphas and wow. Immmediately impressed with them all around. Great construction, feel, and sound. The mic sounds amazing… they absolutely kill the A40’s mic; makes them sound like cheap $3 microphones. The A40s sound anemic compared to these headsets. I will never go back to Astro, accept for using their TR Mix Amp Pro; which when combined with these headphones I believe make the perfect mid-range <$250 headset combo. I have a background in audio recording so my ears now good sound. Get these headsets; you won’t be disappointed. Spend the extra $20 and upgrade the earcups and you’ll be hooked on the sound.
HyperX Cloud Alpha’s groundbreaking Dual Chamber Drivers design gives audio more distinction and clarity by reducing distortion. The dual chambers separate the bass for cleaner, smoother sound. Cloud Alpha has premium red memory foam, an expanded headband and softer, more pliable leatherette, an aluminum frame, detachable braided cable and noise-cancellation microphone. Multi-platform compatible with in-line audio controls on PC, PS4, Xbox One and other platforms with 3.5mm ports. Frequency response of Microphone is 50Hz-18,000Hz. Issues due to headset detachable main cord partially inserted in the earcup jack resulting in no microphone audio or quiet/static sounds. Customer should follow Cloud Alpha User Manual or HyperX Gaming support website headset cable attachment guidelines to properly connect the cord, activate microphone audio on the Alpha inline volume control box, and ensure Cloud Alpha configured as primary audio playback and recording device on the host system.
