HyperX has a new gaming headset that promises up to 300 hours of battery life on a single charge. The HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless gaming headset features DTS Headphone: X Spatial Audio and HyperX Dual Chamber drivers to separate low audio from highs and mids. The new headset is available now for $200 through HyperX's website.
Like many of the best gaming headsets, the HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless can create a virtual 3-D soundscape to immerse players into games.
The headset features a detachable microphone that's certified for Discord and TeamSpeak, which of course also works with other programs as well as games. An LED indicator on the mic shows if it is muted or enabled. The microphone is also noise-canceling to reduce background noise.
The main selling point of the Cloud Alpha Wireless gaming headset is its battery life. HyperX promises that the headphones will get up to 300 hours of battery life, which it claims is a first for a wireless gaming headset. Real-world battery life will vary based on usage, but the headset should last for a long time.
The Cloud Alpha Wireless has an aluminum frame and memory foam earcups covered in a leatherette material.
