Cons

    0 users found this helpful

    Design

    1.has a detachable cable
    βœ”HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ”HyperX Cloud II
    With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
    2.weight

    336g

    350g

    We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
    3.has an over-the-ear form
    βœ”HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ”HyperX Cloud II
    Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
    A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
    5.has RGB lighting
    βœ–HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ–HyperX Cloud II
    RGB lighting allows you to choose between millions of colors and customize the look of your PC components.
    6.can be folded
    βœ–HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ–HyperX Cloud II
    Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
    7.has an earbud form
    βœ–HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ–HyperX Cloud II
    The earbud form is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. For some people it is more comfortable than in-ear form.
    8.has an in-ear form
    βœ–HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ–HyperX Cloud II
    The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
    9.has an on-ear form
    βœ–HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ–HyperX Cloud II
    This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.

    Sound quality

    The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
    2.highest frequency

    27000Hz

    25000Hz

    The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
    3.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
    βœ–HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ–HyperX Cloud II
    This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
    The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
    Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
    6.impedance

    65 Ohms

    60 Ohms

    Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
    7.has a neodymium magnet
    βœ”HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ”HyperX Cloud II
    Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
    8.has passive noise reduction
    βœ”HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ”HyperX Cloud II
    The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
    9.drivers count

    Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (HyperX Cloud Alpha)

    Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (HyperX Cloud II)

    A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.

    Microphone

    1.has a noise-canceling microphone
    βœ”HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ”HyperX Cloud II
    These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
    The lowest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording bass.
    The highest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording treble.
    4.has a removable microphone
    βœ”HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ”HyperX Cloud II
    The microphone can be attached or detached if necessary.
    5.has a mute function
    βœ”HyperX Cloud Alpha
    βœ”HyperX Cloud II
    The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
    6.mic sensitivity

    -43dBV/Pa

    -39dBV/Pa

    It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can pick up.
    More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
