HyperX, the gaming peripherals team at HP Inc. and brand leader in gaming and e-sports, today announced it is now shipping the HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless gaming headset - the first wireless gaming headset with up to 300 hours of battery life on a single charge. With signature HyperX comfort, Cloud Alpha Wireless offers an immersive audio experience with DTS Headphone:X 2 Spatial Audio and utilizes HyperX Dual Chamber Drivers for more accurate in-game audio.

Designed to deliver the ultimate in-game audio experience, Cloud Alpha Wireless utilizes new-and-improved, custom-designed Dual Chamber Technology tuned to deliver mid and high frequencies separately from the lows. Its DTS Headphone:X Spatial Audio provides precise localization and virtual 3D sound for spatial audio that enables gamers to truly escape into game worlds while playing with friends or during competitions. The headset uses custom-designed 50 mm drivers that feature a slimmer, lighter design, while maintaining the sound and performance of the original wired version.



Featuring onboard audio controls to adjust volume, mic mute and mic monitoring, the detachable Discord and TeamSpeak certified microphone has an LED indicator that turns red when muted. In addition, Cloud Alpha Wireless utilizes a detachable noise-cancelling mic to reduce background noise and offers clearer voice quality for improved team communication and in-game chat experiences.

"Designed and tested in the HyperX labs, Cloud Alpha Wireless delivers unrivaled performance, comfort, and build quality with up to 300 hours on a single charge," said Nate Almond, audio manager, HyperX. "Cloud Alpha Wireless is an excellent gaming headset for people wanting high-quality audio coupled with the freedom and flexibility to play without cables for extended periods of time."

Cloud Alpha Wireless broadcasts at 2.4G Hz and up to 20 meters of wireless range to provide wireless freedom without sacrificing audio quality. The headset is compatible with NGENUITY software to check battery life, see and adjust equalizer settings and access more customization options. Plus, it is built with quality aluminium frame construction and adjustable headband for long-lasting durability. The headset also offers signature HyperX comfort with soft leatherette and plush memory foam.

Despite all the technological advances, they still can't do anything about the played out, cliché trope, of the red and black "gamer" scheme

My HyperX Stinger which I used for ~3 years is still in alright condition, only minor damage on the outter cover/layer of the foam. 'daily use with glasses too'
I'm not using it anymore tho but I put it back in its box just in case I need a backup headset cause it still works fine.

Wondering if they are using any interesting battery technology or the headset just weights 50 tons
