The HyperX Cloud Alpha™ S builds upon the groundbreaking Cloud Alpha and features HyperX virtual 7.1[1] surround sound. With the included audio control mixer, you can activate the surround sound and adjust the game audio and chat balance without having to go into any menus. Bass adjustment sliders have been added to the ear cups so you can personalize your audio. The Cloud Alpha S still features the dual-chamber driver system which reduces distortion and provides clearer sound, as well as signature HyperX comfort afforded by the memory foam ear cushions, which have been upgraded with extra breathable leatherette.

HyperX 7.1. surround sound[1]

Tuned by HyperX and tested by gamers to ensure that players get enhanced in-game audio. NGENUITY auto-detects supported games and selects the optimized surround sound profile to improve your experience on PC.

Bass adjustment sliders to personalize your sound

Select from 3 levels of bass with these convenient sliders on the ear cups. Fully open them for maximum bass or close them to reduce the bass levels.

HyperX Dual Chamber Drivers

Separation of bass frequencies from the mids and highs allows them to be tuned separately to provide more distinction between sounds and minimizes distortion.

Game and chat audio balance

Conveniently adjust the mix of game and chat audio levels so you prioritize what you want to hear without having to dig into the in-game or system menus.

Signature HyperX comfort

Choose comfort your way. Game in comfort for longer with leatherette ear cushions that are 8 times more breathable than Cloud Alpha’s, or swap in the fabric ear cushions if you prefer more airflow.

Durable aluminum frame

The tough aluminum frame construction is designed to endure the rigors of daily gaming.

Advanced audio control mixer

Keep the most important functions within reach on PC and PS4™[2]. Activate 7.1 surround sound[1], adjust the game and chat audio balance, mute the mic, and adjust volume without having to leave your game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WreckItRalphFN from Hyper X Cloud Alpha S The sound quality is great after a few setting changes on my pc. Very comfortable even after 2 hrs of streaming. The closed back design does a great job of minimizing ambient noise. I did not use the usb audio control mixer since I use an audio amplifier to control my volume level.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Audio Nerd from HyperX Cloud Alpha S review Sound card does not work properly. There are sounds that you can hear through the headphones without a proper audio setup. Try something else, and make sure you have the correct sound interface to put it through.
