    FAQS :

    Is this a stereo headset?

    Answer: The Cloud Alpha is stereo, however for an outstanding audio experience, I highly recommend combining it with the USB Dolby 7.1 Adapter for USB connection and Virtual Surround Sound.

    Is it better to acquire these or the Cloud 2?

    Answer: Purchase the Alpha S for PC, and get the Alpha S for PS4 because it includes 7.1 surround sound through USB. If you're playing on Xbox One, the Alpha S or Cloud 2 are fantastic (but get a turtle beach first). You won't need to buy an amp for Xbox since the Ear Force audio controller fits on your controller. You can use it with any headset and it will sound excellent.

    Are these headphones both Bluetooth and corded, or merely wired with a modular design?

    Answer: The HyperX Cloud Alpha is a wired stereo headset that comes with a detachable main chord. On PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, tablets, smartphones, and other devices, connect one end of the main wire with grey color jack to left ear cup receptacle and the opposite end to 3.5mm audio jack. If required, use the provided extension cable to connect Cloud Alpha to the desktop PC's independent audio and microphone connectors.

    Why does shipping take so long?

    Answer: This is a brand-new item, therefore we're waiting for further shipments to arrive at the warehouse. Demand and supply!

    Is the connection wireless?

    Answer: It isn't wireless, but the wires are long enough.

    Is everything included, including the optical cable?

    Answer: USB cords are included. Not at all.

    Is the Xbox One version compatible with the Mix Amp on PC? Is it possible to manage the game and conversation volume separately?

    Answer: I have the PS4 version, which works great both on its own and with the PC... It's much better with the PC, in my opinion. They're both designed to operate with consoles and computers. You can regulate the different volume levels independently. Description: Hyperx Cloud Alpha Vs Astro A40
