The HyperX Cloud Mix is A Bit Too Expensive

Value leader HyperX makes a gutsy move into the premium wireless headphone market.

HyperX has photoshopped out the wires leading from the cups to the headband, hoping you won’t notice. They’ve done this several times of late.

The exceptional Cloud Alpha is $99, or $129 for the surround model.

Pay 100 dollars more than an Alpha so you can be confident like this lady. Oh hey look, those wires to the cups are back.
Look! Popular young people! Buy our thing! Don’t buy the Arctis 3 Bluetooth shhh it doesn’t exist!
