Headsets And Memory And Keyboards Oh My

HyperX is showing off a few new products at Gamescon, including a new Cloud Alpha S Gaming Headset which adds a bass slide and virtual 7.1 surround sound to the popular Cloud Alpha headset.  The bass slider offers three positions to let you tune your audio to your preferred level, so that you aren’t tweaking sliders when switching from a gaming session to a VoIP call.   The headset sports the same style of detachable noise cancelling microphone as well as memory foam ear cushions.
