Superhuman Hearing is an EQ setting available in a wide range of Turtle Beach products. It’s hard for me to compare the Cloud Alpha, which is a specific headset, to a sound setting featured across a whole range of Turtle Beach products. Some of those products are good, and some of them are rather cheap. The Alpha is nicer than many of them.

If you’re wondering what Superhuman Hearing actually does, it simply amplifies the “Foosteps range” in the upper midrange, helping you to better position opponents in multiplayer games. It’s not something I’d ever leave turned on while listening to non-gaming audio.

The Cloud Alpha provides crisp, detailed, exciting audio regardless of what you’re listening to, no EQ tricks needed.
