The HyperX Cloud Alpha was our best choice for the best gaming headphones for a long time, and while it has been dethroned by newer alternatives, the Cloud Alpha is still a great headset for PC gaming. Last month it sold briefly for $ 60 at Best Buy and is now back on sale, this time on Amazon.
This is a wired gaming headset, which may not be everyone's favorite design; if not, check out our summary of the best wireless gaming headphones. Still, the simple cable connection makes Cloud Alpha work perfectly with PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, Nintendo Switch and anything else with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Each headset has a 50mm audio controller and red memory foam for convenience.
HyperX Cloud Alpha | $ 70 (save $ 30)
HyperX Cloud Alpha is an old-fashioned headset, but it offers great quality and comfort. Now, the headphones have a $ 30 discount off their original price, which isn’t as good as last month’s $ 40 discount, but it’s still a bargain.See offer
The microphone on these headphones is certified by TeamSpeak and Discord for clear sound, and if you already have a dedicated microphone (or just want to use Cloud Alpha as a normal headset), you can easily remove it.
We reviewed Cloud Alpha in 2018, and the headphones got a score of 90/100 for their excellent comfort and sound quality. It was good value for its original $ 100 price tag, and for the new $ 69.99 retail price, the Cloud Alpha is worth picking up if you’re looking for headphones on the market.
