HyperX Announces the Cloud Alpha S Headset

At Gamescom 2019, Hyperx has announced an update to their Cloud Alpha headset, in the form of the Cloud Alpha S. This headset builds upon the company's previous Cloud Alpha, which is often recommended as the best choice in the $100 price-point. The new Cloud Alpha S sports bass sliders, which offer users a three-level adjustment for bass, adjustable on-the-fly to suit the content you're currently experiencing. There's also virtual 7.1 surround sound, and it remains to be seen how well this feature works. Virtualized soundstages aren't usually the créme de la créme of audio quality, but they definitely have their use-cases. The HyperX Cloud Alpha S will be available at $129, a $30 premium over the Cloud Alpha, on Q4 2019.

iirc HyperX modified the pro 80 design in-house for Alpha and this. Could be horribly wrong though.

But Cooler Master MH751 (stereo) and 752 (virtual surround sound) are definitely Pro 82.

Yea, it also has the bass ports of the takstar which coolermaster decided to drop. Seems like its the same with a microphone attacked to it, which is a good sign if it releases at a competitive price.

Wonder how well it would be in terms of comfort because I replaced the newly purchased Cloud Alpha recently with Cloud II due to the fact, my ear (the left one) got hurt badly after half an hour of gaming session or during watching any movie. Turned out Cloud II serving me damn well now. Straight 2 hour of gaming session without any discomfort felt, is way better. I must say, Cloud II is far better than Alpha particularly in comfort segment. Sound clarity and overall performance is more or less same.
