'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
The HyperX Cloud Alpha headset is a headset designed for PC gamers that can last up to 300 hours on a single charge. The headset uses an aluminum frame and faux leather earpads to deliver ultimate comfort during gaming. This is in part from a signature memory foam that is both as lightweight and comfortable as the frame itself.
The headset also uses special Dual Chamber Drivers to fine tune mids and highs in your audio to bring clear audio. You can expect DTS spatial audio to alert you on from which direction where your enemies are approaching during gameplay. And again, you'll get 300 hours of battery life on a single charge for even the heaviest gamers.
In the ZDNET review, tech expert Taylor Clemons stated that they really enjoyed its wireless capabilities, stating that this feature gave them "more freedom of movement." In addition, they said the headset "has lighter clamping pressure than the Cloud Alpha S, which makes it more comfortable to wear with blue light filtering or prescription glasses or if you have a larger head."
