HyperX has announced a follow-up to its popular Cloud Alpha gaming headset. The new version is called the Cloud Alpha S and adds 7.1 virtual surround sound via a wired audio control box that is comparable to some other HyperX headsets. The box also comes with individual volume controls for chat and game audio.
Essentially, the headphones have the same comfortable design and use the same audio hardware as the previous model, including the two-room drivers, but HyperX says they are slightly adjusted for better sound. There is also a sturdy new bass glider at the rear that lets you adjust the low range while flying.

HyperX will release the Cloud Alpha S in September for $ 129.99.
