HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset Review

The HyperX Cloud Alpha is the rare gaming headset that blends functionality, design and superb sound into one complete package. The headset is comprised of clean and subdued colors except for the bright splashes of the HyperX logo and rims, making for an elegant contrast.
