✔️= winner ❌ = loser
Good budget headsets are hard to come by and with the Logitech G Pro X vs HyperX Cloud Alpha, we have some strong contenders.
We recommend the Logitech G Pro headset.
The Logitech G Pro headset has better design and audio performance. Build quality is also quite decent for this considering it’s under $200.
In this we are going to assess design, build, adjustability, comfortability, sound quality (both mic and speakers) and look at which one is going to give you the best bang for your buck.
We have talked about the importance of audio in streaming before – however this time we’ll be looking at audio from your (the streamer’s side of things)
Logitech G Pro X Headset
The logitech definitely comes out ahead with design. As it has a total black finish to the whole headset, it is going to match more setups/outfits.
It also isn’t too bulky – I know how much of an issue bulky headsets can be with my Razer Kraken Ultimate. This is not an issue here with a small designer.
This also means that you could use these as regular headphones in public. Branding is rather minimal and doesn’t have any fluro colors that’s going to draw attention.
The build for these headphones are bad – it’s just that the HyperX Clouds have such a huge reputation for being built like Nokia mobile phones.
After 3 months of solid use I haven’t had any more wear and tear then I would have from other headphones.
It’s built like a Logitech product which from my experience is always fantastic.
It uses a combination of hard plastic and stainless steel for the body.
The adjustability on both of these headsets is pretty good with a self adjusting headband so that the headset can sit snug on your ears.
The ear cups also rotate so that these can sit flat against your chest and make them easy to wear around your neck for short breaks.
Personally I found that the Logitech fit me slightly better when it came to squeezing/cupping the ears.
The clamping force feels better for these ones and is a little stronger than the HyperX.
With a lightweight polymer ear cup and fork these are still very comfortable headphones – it’s just that the HyperX do have the advantage.
Sound Quality ✔️
After a side-by-side comparison with the two headsets, the Logitech objectively has a better, crisper sound when it comes to the output. It did feel like the HyperX Cloud Alphas did sound a little muffled sometimes.
I used these for both gaming and listening to music and
The tech and specs
- 3.5mm audio jack that allows you to connect these to PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch or any other device with an audio jack.
- The headset uses a prograder condenser microphone so it has a wider frequency response and higher sensitivity.
- These use the Pro-G audio drivers which will give better audio for gaming – especially for first person shooters where you are wanting to hear foot steps.
HyperX Cloud Alpha
With bright red and orange accents I’m not a fan of the design of this headset.
It would have been better for more variety for color selection – bright orange just isn’t for me and would much prefer a stealth all black version.
These guys are know for their excellent quality and this is no exception. After a month of use I can tell that this thing is able to take a beating if it needed to.
It is built with an aluminum body which means that you won’t need to worry as much about damaging it when throwing it around.
Unlike the Logitech G Pro, these do not have rotating ear cups which means that if you want to take short breaks from these you will need to take them off completely.
You can adjust the sizing of these like any other headset – nothing tt
With premium leather ear pads these are comfortable headphones. There is plenty of cushion and space between the headphones and your ear.
The only downside I had with these headphones is that after a long period of time of wearing these they did squeeze a little too hard for my liking.
After 4-5 hours straight of wearing these they began to give me a headache unlike the
Sound Quality ❌
These do have pretty average output which is why the Logitech are going to claim this one.
The noise cancellation is a 6/10 for me when comparing them to something like the Bose QS35’s – these are the best in noise cancellation.
The microphone does detach unlike the Logitechs which is good if you’re wanting to just wear these around and not use them just for gaming.
The tech and specs
- These are compatible with any device with a 3.5mm audio jack – PC, Xbox One, Mac, phones, PlayStation 4.
- They are pretty lightweight coming at 340g – however the weight difference between the two headsets is quite small so you won’t notice much difference here.
- Packaging is similar for the HyperX Cloud Alphas with a carrying case along with a Y cable for splitting and a audio cable to connect the headset to devices.
