London (UK) – 11th April 2022 - HyperX, the gaming peripherals team at HP Inc. and brand leader in gaming and esports, today announced it is now shipping the HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless gaming headset – the first wireless gaming headset with up to 300 hours1 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 utilises HyperX Dual Chamber Drivers for more accurate in-game audio.


Designed to deliver the ultimate in-game audio experience, Cloud Alpha Wireless utilises 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 localisation 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 50mm 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 TeamSpeakTM certified microphone has an LED indicator that turns red when muted. In addition, the Cloud Alpha Wireless detachable noise-cancelling mic reduces 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 unrivalled performance, comfort, and build quality with up to 300 hours on a single charge,” said Bianca Walter, Business Manager, HyperX EMEA. “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 2.4GHz and up to 20 meters3 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 equaliser settings and access more customisation 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.
