For a long time, we ranked the HyperX Cloud Alpha at the top of our list of best gaming headsets, and it wasn't until Razer's Blackshark V2 arrived that it was finally dethroned. Still, Cloud Alpha is still an incredibly good headset and we can wholeheartedly recommend buying them for sale for $ 59.99.
This is the top selling price on Best Buy, which is $ 40 below its PVP, and $ 30 less than the cost discounted on Amazon currently. And it's worth every penny, although now there are newer models, like the Cloud Alpha II (on sale for $ 79.99, less than $ 99.99) and Cloud Alpha S (on sale for $ 99.99, below $ 129.99).

It wasn’t long ago when we considered them to be the best gaming headphones, for their balance of comfort, sound quality, durability and price. Although there are newer headphones, the value proposition of this deal is hard to beat. See offer
When we reviewed the Cloud Alpha in 2018, we said that "there are no better gaming headphones around", a strong opinion supported by the excellent range and comfort of the headphones. One thing that stood out in particular was its ability to deliver sharp bass that doesn’t go to the expense of the details above the EQ range, which isn’t something all gaming headsets can boast about.
We also congratulated the feeling of the padded headphones and headband, the latter is slightly wider than the previous model and has a relatively light design. You can wear the Cloud Alpha for hours and hours and you hardly feel worse. The only thing you can notice is that the synthetic leather contact points around the ear lend themselves to being warmer than the more breathable designs.
However, the comfort level is high, as is the durability and, of course, the sound quality. The only downside is the price.
