Last Saturday I wrote that the HyperX Cloud Alphas, are in my opinion, a headset so reasonably priced for what you get already that they’re even worth a buy without a discount. Normally $99, they’re an even greater value proposition now they’re $79 at Amazon (£59).
I think they’re so good, in fact, I’m using them to provide the soundtrack to another day of tasty deals this Cyber Monday, without any annoying bleed disturbing my partner working nearby. Yes, we share a home office—this is 2020, after all. I’ve had them a few years now, so I can personally vouch for their cushy comfort, 50mm dual-chamber drivers, and great detachable microphone.
Building on the original idea of the HyperX Cloud headsets—a focus on quality audio at a great price point—the Cloud Alpha uses smart new drivers, recently copied by Razer, and sound incredible. And $79 for them is an absolute steal. They’re currently second in our list of the best gaming headsets to the Razer Blackshark V2s, which are similarly priced without a discount and also worth checking out. HyperX has a track record for quality cans though, and the Cloud Alphas are its current aural apex.

You can get an even better deal on these headphones if you’re in the UK. For just a snip at £60, you’ll struggle to find much better value anywhere else this Cyber Monday.View Deal
The mic’s not perfect, but I’ve found little wrong with the HyperX Cloud Alphas in my time with them. I’ve never completely loved how they look, though: The red-and-black color scheme is a bit gamer-y for my liking, but for this value I was willing to take that particular aesthetic bullet.
One reason the original price is decent already is that they’re wired, so they may not be for you if you’re not a fan of trailing cables. If that’s you, you should take a look at the best wireless gaming headsets to help you cut the cord. And it’s also worth taking a look at our latest Cyber Monday gaming headset deals, if you’d rather take advantage of a deeper discount. Otherwise, this is easy to recommend.
