Among the headsets specifically designed for video games is the Cloud Series, which is designed to meet all gaming enthusiasts’ needs. Known for its sound quality and aesthetics, the Cloud Alpha gaming headset is different from all other competitors on the market. After launching the previous gaming headsets, HyperX introduced a headset to provide gamers with a more pleasant experience during longer gaming sessions.

The sound quality prevails here, it also impresses when compared to other gaming headsets in the same price range such as: Sennheiser GSP 350, Corsair Void Elite Surround 7.1, Turtle Beach Elite 800. The brand’s engineers have made every possible focus to create a solid and durable headset. We also noticed how pleasant the headset is after a few hours of wearing, both in portability and sound.

Will it be able to deliver on its promise?

We got our hands on a SteelSeries Arctis 9 wireless gaming headset, which has been adapted for PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, as well as PCs. The headset isn’t cheap, but its design and sound quality, as well as some unique features, make it worth the price. We will tell you more about it in our review.
The Arctis 9 Wireless gaming headset belongs to Steelseries’ high-end range of gaming headphones that can connect to your PC and PS4. Other wired and wireless models often lose the connection, get stuck, and have to reconnect, which can be quite frustrating. Because such things happen even with some mid-range wireless headsets, Arctis 9 was designed for gamers to enjoy rich gaming sound and play freely without Bluetooth nuisances.
With the BlackShark V2, Razer has launched a wonderful gaming headset that combines a low price with high quality. On the other hand, the BlackShark V2 Pro doesn’t attract too much attention from avid PC gamers as the gaming headset has the same design and features as its predecessor. Nevertheless, Razer has created a worthy successor, and at the same time, a fantastic wireless gaming headset.
Getting rid of the wires that once kept people tangled was a great choice from the American company. Wireless headsets are more comfortable to use; however, they also have a longer transmission delay than wired devices. According to the manufacturer, Razer offers to eliminate high latency with its own HyperSpeed technology, which is supposed to provide a faster connection – “25% faster than any other wireless gaming technology”.
