HyperX's new Cloud Alpha S resembles the original Alpha design, which in itself is basically akin to the excellent HyperX Cloud II model. It's a wired headset that features dual-chamber tech for more realistic sounds across multiple frequencies, but the main selling point is the virtual 7.1 surround sound coupled with some nifty additions like on-the-fly base adjustment sliders.

Like the former model, the Cloud Alpha S sports a built-in mic with noise-cancelling tech and a comfortable design, complete with foam ear cups. It also sports an external sound card box just like the Cloud II, and can detach to plug directly into devices like mobile phones.

"We are excited to expand our line of HyperX peripherals with the Cloud Alpha S gaming headset," said Marcus Hermann, senior business manager, HyperX. "Offering users a 7.1 virtual surround sound headset that has all the comfort and style of the original HyperX Cloud Alpha. The new Alpha S gives gamers precise sound and intuitive control features to enjoy fully immersive soundscapes."

Full specs weren't released, and the HyperX Cloud Alpha S will cost $129.
