The permanent cable and bulky sides both scream 2016, but a revision could easily fix both of these things. With the Alpha S on the market, I’m not sure if HyperX will ever bother. Photo taken by the author.

I do radio voice work by day, and write by day and night. I studied film and production. I love audio, design, and music. Also video games.
