CES 2022 | HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless Gaming Headset launched with 50 mm drivers and up to 300 hours of battery life
HyperX has announced the Cloud Alpha Wireless Gaming Headset at CES 2022. According to the company, the Cloud Alpha Wireless should last up to 300 hours between charges, making it one of the longest-lasting headphones on the market. Unsurprisingly, the headset takes a long time to recharge once it is spent. Specifically, the Cloud Alpha Wireless will take upwards of 4:30 hours to recharge fully.
At the heart of the Cloud Alpha Wireless are 50 mm drivers with neodymium magnets. HyperX claims that these drivers provide 15 Hz – 21 kHz frequency response and an impedance of 62 Ohms. The closed-back headset also supports DTS Headphone:X and has memory foam ear cushions wrapped in 'premium leatherette'. Incidentally, the headset weighs 322 g itself and 335 g with its microphone attached.
HyperX adds that it has included a 6 mm Electret condenser microphone that supports noise-cancelling and is bi-directional. The microphone should offer a 50 Hz – 7.2 kHz frequency response too, along with -15 dBFS/Pa at 1 kHz sensitivity. Additionally, the Cloud Alpha Wireless has a wireless range of up to 20 metres over a 2.4 GHz wireless connection.
HyperX expects to begin selling the Cloud Alpha Wireless Gaming Headset in February. The headset will retail for US$199.99 and will only be available in one colour.
