That’s a great question!

I tested it out, and yes, the cable from the original Alphas does work in the Alpha S, complete with volume and mic mute controls.

That means any cable from that lineup, including the Cloud Mix cable and in-line mic cable that HyperX sells on this page, should also work with it, as it shares the same standard pin configuration.

I think the Cloud Alpha S’s only real “issue” is that short basic cable, and in the future I’m hoping there will be new revisions/options with different connectivity choices.

I’m glad that HyperX sells other cables for reasonably cheap prices in the meantime, at least.

Thanks for reading.
