HyperX Reveals Next Generation Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset

Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset is an Industry First with Dual Chamber

HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, just unveiled its next generation gaming headset – HyperX Cloud Alpha. It’s the first gaming headset to feature revolutionary dual chamber technology.  Cloud Alpha delivers incredible audio quality designed to enhance the PC, console and mobile gaming experience. Cloud Alpha replaces the popular HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset, delivering improved fit and comfort for extended gaming sessions, as well as rich, textured sound for extraordinary spatial sounds.

Showcasing for the first time at Gamescom 2017, Cloud Alpha features HyperX dual chamber technology to  deliver an accurate game sound with incredible range and tone. With 50mm drivers, the dual chambers allow HyperX to create a dynamic sound that makes gaming, music and movies more immersive.

Just like all HyperX Cloud headsets, Cloud Alpha is designed to deliver the ultimate comfort for hours of extended gameplay with premium HyperX signature memory foam, an expanded headband featuring softer, more pliable leatherette, and a durable, lightweight aluminum frame design.

The headset features a detachable cable with in-line audio control allowing console gamers to adjust volume and mute microphone right on the cable with multi-platform compatibility with systems with 3.5mm ports.  The Cloud Alpha is TeamSpeak and Discord Certified.

Gamescom is the world’s largest gaming developer event, and HyperX is proud to sponsor its first major PUBG eSports Tournament. HyperX offers a complete portfolio of gear used by pro gamers across the globe for competitive gameplay and its full lineup – including the new Cloud Alpha – will be used on 80 gaming platforms during the PUBG Invitational where gamers will compete for a $350,000 prize pool.

Cloud Alpha will be showcased at Gamescom from Aug. 22 – 24 in Cologne, Germany. HyperX will be located in the Game Industry Business Lounge, part of the Gamescom Business Area. Leading up to the official start of Gamescom, Paul Leaman, vice president, EMEA, HyperX, will be speaking on August 21 at 12pm CET on the Digital Sponsorship panel at the first SPOBIS Gaming & Media Conference on the growing eSports landscape and role of endemic sponsors.
