Black Friday 2022 officially starts tomorrow, but there’s been a lot of deals all week, and today there are several deals you can get your hands on at Currys on all sorts of tech and gaming hardware.
One such deal is this £90 off HyperX Cloud Alpha gaming headset offer available from Currys.
So why choose this headset?
Well, one of the biggest selling points of the HyperX Cloud Alpha isn’t just its wireless connection – meaning you can move around freely and not be constantly directly connected to your device while wearing this headset – but also its long battery life. up to 300 hours.
This headset’s ability to hold such a long charge – which should last you around 12 and a half days – means you can game for longer and more sessions without worrying about the need to charge often.
As far as the headset’s audio performance goes, you’ll be pleased to know it’s a very reliable choice, with our own Reece Bithrey saying the headsets “offer quite a meaty sound with plenty of volume to boot, making them ideal for gaming”. When it comes to the mic, a similar amount of praise applies here too with his – as Reece puts it – “fairly clear” mic that he says is better than many he’s tried in the past. Thanks to the background noise-canceling microphone, you can stay in the action without having to worry about any noise. And if there’s ever a problem, the mute button is easily accessible.
When it comes to the visuals of this headset, it’s built with a slick black and red aesthetic and while it might not appeal to those with RGB plastered builds, it undeniably looks good and helps the headset stand out in a crowd of standard black or white designs.
This headset also comes with a few useful features, such as built-in volume and audio controls, so you can adjust those on the fly – independent of your system’s volume – and you can also unplug the microphone if you’d rather not use it.
Plus, if you’re wondering where this headset can be used, it’s mostly compatible everywhere – PlayStation, Switch PC, mobile etc – the Cloud Alpha works with all of them, but not Xbox due to Microsoft’s proprietary format for headsets connected via USB.
