HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless review: Insanely great battery life for gaming, music and more
For about a year now, I’ve been using the HyperX Cloud Alpha S wired headset for everything from Zoom meetings at work and streaming music or YouTube videos while I write to PC gaming, chatting with friends on Discord, and (very rarely) streaming my Gundam model builds on Twitch. And before that, I had used a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M20xBTs until they literally fell apart on my head.
They were both great headsets, and I never thought I’d find one I like better — until the Cloud Alpha Wireless came along. My biggest concern with wireless headsets is that you’re limited by a battery, and I hate having to remember to charge something other than my phone or console controllers. I much prefer the almost unlimited power offered by wired headsets, since I don’t have to worry about losing audio output in the middle of work, a stream, or my weekly chat-and-game sessions with friends. However, the Cloud Alpha Wireless might have converted me.
The Cloud Alpha Wireless headset retails for $199.99, which is $40 more than their Cloud Flight S that features Qi wireless charging and 7.1CH surround sound and $50 more than the Cloud Revolver with studio-quality audio, detachable 7.1CH surround sound module. At the time of writing, there wasn’t any information on international pricing, but accounting for conversions, you can expect the Cloud Alpha Wireless to sell for around £153 in the UK, €184 across Europe, AU$269 in Australia, and CA$252 in Canada. This puts the headset at the higher end of expensive for gaming-specific headphones, but it’s still comparable with other wireless headsets. As for whether the Cloud Alpha Wireless is worth every bit of that $200, my verdict is: almost. While there are some great qualities and features, there are a few things that do hold the headset back from being just about perfect.
Comfort and quality
The Cloud Alpha Wireless has a similar design to the wired version, with red aluminum stabilizer forks and accent stitching on the headband as well as a detachable mic. Both ear cups feature on-board controls, with the left-hand side giving you access to the power button and quick-mute button while the right side has the volume dial. The dial takes some getting used to, since I always want “volume up” to have the wheel turn towards the front part of the ear cup, but it’s a nice way to adjust things on-the-fly. The wheel has a nice tension to it, so you don’t accidentally crank your volume up to 100 and blow out your eardrums or slap it down to absolute zero in the middle of a conversation on Zoom or Discord.
The USB-C charging port is also on the left-hand ear cup between the mute button and the microphone jack. The included charging cable is on the short side at about 18 inches, which isn’t a problem if your monitor or keyboard has USB ports or if you primarily use a laptop. But if your only port options are on a desktop tower or you mostly game on consoles, you’ll have to invest in a much longer cable if you want to use the headset while it’s charging or not have it dangling precariously on the edge of your desk or entertainment center.
The Cloud Alpha Wireless is also pretty comfortable to wear, even during long gaming sessions or workdays. It weighs just 322 grams without the mic (335g with it attached), which is slightly more than the Cloud Alpha S which weighs in at about 308g. But being freed from a USB cable tether makes the headset feel much lighter than it is. With more freedom of movement, as well as the super comfortable memory foam ear cups and headband, you won’t feel weighed down after hours of trying to beat Margit, the Fell Omen in Elden Ring or a full day of Zoom meetings at work. The headset also has lighter clamping pressure than the Cloud Alpha S, which makes it more comfortable to wear with blue light filtering or prescription glasses or if you have a larger head.
The detachable microphone comes with a removable foam windscreen, which is great if you prefer not to use one or if you need to quickly clean the mic or windscreen itself. It also features a flexible boom arm that makes adjusting the mic quick and easy, though it doesn’t stay in place as well as I would like. The flexible arm has a bit of “spring” in it, which means it bounces back a little if you try to push it all the way up, down, or to the side. It’s not a deal breaker, but if you like further mic placements, it can be a hassle to keep pushing the mic out of the way; and if that’s the case, you’d be better off detaching the mic altogether in favor of a separate, dedicated microphone like the HyperX QuadCast S or SoloCast USB microphones.
Audio and HyperX NGENUITY app
The sound quality you get with the Cloud Alpha Wireless headset is top-notch. Each ear cup features a dual chamber driver system that separates mid and high tones from the bass notes for a consistently clean, crisp sound. Even the notification voice is pleasantly clear rather than the tinny, robotic voice you often get with true wireless headsets and earbuds. The notification prompt lets you know when the headset has been powered on or off, has connected or disconnected from your computer or console, and battery percentage so you can take care of any issues that pop up or know exactly how long you can keep playing Elden Ring before you need to recharge your headset.

To get the most out of your Cloud Alpha Wireless, though, you’ll need to download the HyperX Ngenuity desktop app. This is a simple program that allows you to adjust microphone and headset volume more precisely, toggle mic monitoring on and off, enable the DTS Headphone: X audio driver, and even create your own custom equalizer settings. And if you hate the idea of single-purpose applications cluttering your desktop, don’t worry: the HyperX Ngenuity app is designed to work with all of your HyperX peripherals like keyboards, mice, and microphones so you can sync RGB lighting effects and quickly access settings for each device. The Ngenuity app also lets you see exact battery levels since the voice notification rounds to the nearest 10 percent.
With DTS Headphone: X spatial audio enabled, you’ll not only be able to better pinpoint audio cues in games like footsteps, enemy fire, and environmental dangers, but it makes listening to music and videos more enjoyable as well. With it enabled, dialogue sounds clearer and music feels more robust, which helps if you’re like me and hard of hearing. I tend to listen to podcasts and let’s plays while I work, and depending on the tone and timbre of what voice I’m listening to, dialogue can sound muddled and fuzzy, which is frustrating since I’ll often have to scrub back and forth in the audio or video to fully understand a single joke or comment. With DTS Headphone: X, it helps clean up ambient “hiss” and audio in the lower registers to vastly improve your listening experience; which is perfect for when I’m marathoning the It Gets Weird podcast’s cryptid episodes or restarting the Game Grumps’ playthrough of Sonic Boom for the 15th time because it’s my only reliable source of serotonin.
Aside from podcasts and YouTube videos, I also put the Cloud Alpha Wireless through the gamut with my Steam library and favorite PS4 games. On PC, I tested the headset with DayZ and its Livonia DLC and the Halo: Master Chief Collection.
In DayZ, it’s easy to get complacent as you spend a lot of time in empty, open spaces traveling between towns in order to scavenge for food, weapons, and clothing, which leaves you vulnerable to surprise attacks from zombies that randomly spawn in farmhouses and fields. The spatial audio helped better identify and pinpoint the telltale growls and screeches each zombie type makes, allowing me to avoid single enemies as well as small clusters that either weren’t worth the effort of eliminating or weren’t a wise fight to pick. It also helped better identify where player fire was coming from and how far away it was so I could figure out just how much time I had to stuff as many chlorine tablets and bandage rolls from the hospital in my pockets as I could before someone in a house dress and motorcycle helmet beat me to death with a rock in order to steal my Not-Pepsi and canned pork.
In the Halo: Master Chief Collection, the spatial audio wasn’t much of a help during the main story mode, but did help in online multiplayer as I was violently slapped back to high school Friday nights spent trying to rocket jump to a specific, barely-accessible ledge in the Blood Gulch map to set up shop as the world’s worst sniper.
With my PS4, I used the Cloud Alpha Wireless while playing Personal 5 Royal, Yakuza 0, and The Last of Us Part II. Unfortunately, if you use the headset with a console like the PlayStation 4 or Xbox Series X, you lose the ability to enable the DTS Headphone: X spatial audio, so the in-game sound wasn’t quite the same level as what you can get on PC. But it was still a great experience. Not having a cable that connects the headset to the controller felt much more comfortable since I was free to hold the controller in my lap, reducing arm and shoulder tension that often crops up during marathon sessions; especially if you’re all scrunched up in the corner of your couch because it’s Sunday, you don’t have anywhere to be or pressing tasks to complete, and you’ve nested in a mound of blankets and throw pillows because you’re An Adult™ and you’ll spend 13 hours perfecting your Yakuza 0 karaoke scores if you want to.
While the headset itself doesn’t have any sort of active noise canceling features, the memory foam ear cups and 50mm drivers do a great job of isolating game audio from background noise. I live very, very close to a major highway, so traffic noise is always an issue. With the Cloud Alpha Wireless, the traffic noise was still audible, but it wasn’t as much of a distraction as it usually is; which was especially helpful while I was playing Persona 5 Royal, which is a dialogue-heavy game and missing a few lines (even with on-screen text and subtitles) can cause confusion and frustration throughout story missions and mini-games.
The headset connects to your PC, PlayStation 4 or 5, or Xbox One or Series X via a 2.4GHz wireless USB dongle which gains points for easy use. Setting up the headset on my desktop was one of the easiest processes I’ve had to go through: I just plugged in the USB receiver, waited for the drivers to install, and double-checked that my audio output was routed through the headset rather than my monitors. For my PlayStation 4, I plugged the receiver into the console, then double-checked the audio menu to make sure sound would play through the headset and that the microphone was recognized. For both scenarios, setup took just a couple of minutes, which was a relief since some gaming headsets require lengthy driver installs or troubleshooting to address connectivity issues. And as nice as the wireless configuration is, and how easy the setup was, there is one glaring strike against the Cloud Alpha Wireless: it doesn’t have the option for Bluetooth connectivity.
Without Bluetooth, you can’t use the Cloud Alpha Wireless with your smartphone, tablet, or Nintendo Switch. If you’re the kind of gamer that has a dedicated headset for play and different earbuds or headsets for music, you can skip the next part of the paragraph. But if you’re like me and hate the idea of single-function peripherals, it could be a dealbreaker, if not a major cause for hesitation when shopping. I would have loved to see a flexible connectivity option, letting you choose either the USB receiver or Bluetooth. But seeing as none of HyperX’s current wireless headset lineup features any sort of Bluetooth connectivity, it was a bit of a pipe dream. While I can’t know for sure, I suspect that foregoing any sort of Bluetooth option was deliberate in order to get the most out of the integrated, rechargeable battery as well as to help keep the retail price somewhat reasonable; even though the Razer Opus wireless headset retails for the same exact price while not only offering Bluetooth connectivity, but also THX-certified audio and active noise cancellation (though the battery life is paltry in comparison).
Battery life and charging
The biggest selling point for the Cloud Alpha Wireless is the bonkers 300-hour battery life, which blows not only the rest of HyperX’s wireless headset options out of the water, but a lot of competing brands as well. To put it in perspective, HyperX’s Cloud Flight S has a 30-hour max battery life, the Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless headset gives you up to 15 hours of play on a single charge, and the SteelSeries Arctis 9 gives you about 20 hours before you need to plug it in. A 300-hour battery life means you can play 8 hours a day for almost 38 consecutive days before you ever get a “low battery” notification. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the Cloud Alpha Wireless in time to test that metric, but I did spend the better part of two weeks listening to music, gaming, and streaming videos on consoles and PC. At the time of writing, I had just hit the 50 percent battery mark; and that’s with DTS Headphone: X audio almost perpetually enabled.
I’m thoroughly impressed with how robust the battery is in this headset, and I suspect that a lot of design choices help it achieve the 300-hour mark. For example, this headset has almost no LED lighting except what is on the detachable mic to alert you to whether or not it’s muted. Having RGB lighting options may help complete your personal aesthetic, but it does take a toll on battery life; by eliminating it on the Cloud Alpha Wireless, HyperX was able to extend play time quite a bit.
Volume levels can also affect battery life, and thankfully you don’t have to crank it to 11 in order to get great audio. Even without the spatial audio enabled, sound is clean and clear enough at lower volumes that I rarely felt the need to touch the on-board dial or my PC’s audio mixer. I tend to keep my volume around 30 percent since different audio sources have wildly different output levels; anyone who has switched from a Spotify playlist to a Zoom meeting can attest to just how loud things can get at the same volume percentage. And whether or not I had spatial audio enabled, 30 percent volume was just about perfect for everything from YouTube videos, Zoom calls, gaming, and binging season 22 of Escape to the Country because I love a quaint, thatched-roof cottage nestled among rolling fields full of grazing sheep. If you prefer higher volume levels, you won’t get quite as much life out of your headset, but what’s a handful of hours out of several hundred?
Another feature that helps extend battery life is the auto-off when the headset is idle for about 10 minutes. This feature is particularly helpful for when you forget to manually power down the headset after work or a game session, but kind of annoying when you’ve disabled auto-play on YouTube and you need to constantly power it on between videos because you needed to finish something for work before clicking over to a 5-hour video essay about iCarly or a 2. 5-hour video about why RWBY is so disappointing. I’m not entirely sure how much the auto-off feature extends the battery life, but it’s a nice touch either way since I tend to just put the headphones aside when I’m done playing games or working and often forget to turn them off beforehand.
Charging the Cloud Alpha Wireless is simple and straightforward; a USB-to-USB-C cable is included with the headset so you can use a port passthrough in your keyboard, a port on your monitor, or USB input on your laptop, console, or desktop tower. However, the charging cable is about 18 inches long, making it entirely too short to comfortably use your headset while it’s charging. Since it uses a USB-C cable for power, you could easily substitute any charging cable for more maneuverability. But for a whisker under $200, it would have been nice to get at least a 3-foot charging cable for use while charging.
For the price, the HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless headset is a solid option for both PC and console gamers looking for clean audio as well as the ability to create custom EQ settings or take advantage of virtual, spatial sound drivers. However, the lack of Bluetooth connectivity limits your use options to computers and consoles with USB 3.0 ports to accommodate the 2.4GHz wireless receiver; so no rescuing hidden Waddle Dees in Kirby and the Forgotten Land while waiting for your Friday night pizza and no listening to your workout playlist on your phone at the gym. The $200 price tag might be on the higher end of expensive for a gaming headset, but the cost is backed up by the most impressive battery life available along with great spatial audio, custom EQ settings, and solid build. So if you’re looking to invest in a wireless gaming headset that will not only deliver top-notch audio on both PC and console but also last you for years to come, the Cloud Alpha Wireless is a worthy investment.
Alternatives to consider
If you’re still on the fence, here are some tough competitors to the Cloud Alpha Wireless:
Review: Xbox Wireless Headset – Movies Games and Tech
– Advertisement –
By the time I was finally able to secure my own Xbox Series X at the end of April 2021, I already had my eyes on the just announced Xbox Wireless Headset. Hard as it is to imagine, but this is the first “first party” headset made by Xbox for quite some time, in fact for the entire seven-year length of the Xbox One Generation, Xbox never released their own headset but instead relied on partnering with third party headset makers. As someone who has used mid to low budget range Wireless gaming headsets in recent years, I was extremely interested in the many features the Xbox Wireless once would offer and though it also took quite a bit of effort to find a retailer with one in stock, having now used it for the last month, I can quite happily say, Xbox have followed up the Series X/S consoles launch with another hit.
What is in the box:
- 1 X Xbox Wireless Headset
- 1 X USB C Cable for Charging
The presentation of the Wireless Headset is exceptionally clean and precise with no fancy extra stylings as you see the box, open the box and the headset is presented with only the stand warranty and setup guides along with the USB C Charging cable. The first thing that struck me was the how the headset is clearly modelled in the standard black and green colour scheme of Xbox, and I really like it as it goes very nicely with my Xbox Series X but also not so bad if you have the Series S. The other thing you may notice if you have used other wireless headsets is that there is no USB dongle you must plug into your console’s USB port in order to connect your headset, something that has been a previous pet peeve of mine when using a wireless headset on console.
Instead, we are hit by the first lovely feature that this headset will use the same wireless connection technology that allows the Xbox Controller to pair with your console, which for me is a complete game changer because I already have quite enough things connected to the USB ports of my Series X. Now the headset itself is mostly plastic, which some may complain about given the not exactly cheap £90 asking price for the headset but I really do not mind as the headset looks nice and more importantly, it is comfortable to wear because it is quite light compared to other wireless headsets. The reason for this is because there are none of the usual digital button setups that would add quite a bit of weight to the ear cups, instead Xbox have decided to go with a classic dial system to control volume and party chat/game mixing. The refreshing design however means that the dials are on the outside of the ear cups, with the right dial controlling overall headset volume, with the word Xbox etched into the outside whilst the left ear cup dial manages party chat and game audio mixing. The Microphone is also different in that is is shorter, almost half the length of a conventional microphone bar and can be curled up to move it out of the way.
In fact, the only two buttons on this headset is the mute button for the microphone and the power on and pairing activation button also on the left side of the headset. There is a USB C port on the back of the right ear cup for charging and that is it, simplicity in design but incredible in performance which brings me to the microphone first, which is quite honestly the best microphone I have had on any gaming headset I have used. The clarity of the microphone is sharp and crisp which is perfect for those hectic party chatting when the action gets heated in MP games but also made a big difference when I stream from my Xbox Series X with the reaction from viewers believing I was actually using a studio mic plugged into my laptop rather than a console gaming headset, it really is a fantastic microphone and the bar being short was never an issue for me and was actually quite nice not to have a microphone constantly in my eyeline when gaming with an auto mute setting via the Xbox Accessories App so that when you are not speaking, the microphone will mute until you speak again.
The sound quality with the headset straight out of the box can be hit and miss at first due to the high level of bass the headset naturally has. With the Xbox Accessories App on console and PC, there is a basic equalizer that can be adjusted to personalize the sound, but the true power of this headset really is when you set it up to use any one of the three sound options the Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles can use starting with the Windows Sonic tech and then either Dolby Atmos or DTS Headphone: X. Now the Dolby sound schemes require installing of their own apps to your console and they will require purchasing an additional license in order to keep having the option to use them. Now when I purchased mine and connected it to my Xbox Series X for the first time, it automatically installed the Dolby Atmos app and gave me a six-month trial of it without me manually installing the app or signing up to it though friends who picked this headset up after me have said they each received a lesser length trial, so perhaps this was a launch-based perk.
Of the three options I must admit that the Dolby Atmos impressed me the most and will be the main sound scheme I stick with going forward, it just works so well with the games and with streaming services like Disney + and watching videos on YouTube. I always raise the bass levels with my music and sound equalizers but with Dolby Atmos everything from the low end just sounded incredible when playing games like Warzone and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla whilst returning to Ori and the Will of the Wisps, GEARS 5 and the HALO Master Chief Collection all came to life whilst using this headset. I also found it to be amazingly comfortable over long gaming sessions lasting more than six hours in titles such as Sea of Thieves or just general party chatting, there was no heat buildup in the large well cushioned ear cups nor any head strain from wearing it with the very adjustable headband. So, to say that when you do see and feel that the plastic build might be off putting after paying £90, all the tech that is inside this well-designed headset is where you feel that price’s value.
One surprising feature is that this really is more than just a gaming headset due to the Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity that allows it to be paired to your phone, tablet and even to a PC with a wireless adaptor and they can all be connected at the same time so for example, when connected to your Xbox console it can also be paired with your smart phone enabling you to use Discord for chatting or a music app to play music as you drive around in a Forza title or take down teams in CoD Warzone. The versatility of this headset to be used beyond just your Xbox console, especially at a time when a good number of people are still working or communicating with family from home, provides a great additional solution for that.
The spatial or 3D Audio that was hyped up quite a bit before the Series X and S consoles launched works incredibly well with this headset and the game titles that are making use of it, hearing footsteps in a shooter and knowing what direction they came from is an added advantage with this headset. The control dials are so intuitive when wearing the headset that you will quickly be able to adjust game audio to levels you prefer but especially in controller the party chat to game mixing too. Battery life is also particularly good with this headset, though I have never gotten to the fifteen hours Xbox say you can get with a single full charge, I have had exceedingly long gaming sessions over a weekend for example where I have gamed up to twelve hours before instinctively putting the headset on charge. I will say I found the USB C Charging cable that comes with the Xbox Wireless Headset to be rather short, though you can purchase longer cables yourself, I was surprised to see just how short it was meaning that for my gaming setup, I must connect it to the front USB port on my Series X to leave to charge overnight which can take up to three hours to fully charge up. Due to it lacking a 3.5mm jack port, should it run out of power it will just turn off so do make sure to keep it charged for when you want to use it.
Quite honestly the Xbox Wireless Headset is the best gaming headset I have used, nudging past the Razor Kraken headset which I now use for my PS5. I love the design of it which is rather creative yet deceptive design because just looking at it, you would never know the amazing tech that is built into it from just the appearance. Performance wise it has not let me down on any of the games I have played over the last six weeks or so I have been using it as my main Xbox headset though I will say for those hoping to use it on their phone or laptop/PC just for music, it is clear this was designed for a good gaming experience first though I have no real complaints when I have used listened to music or watching a film of TV show via my Xbox but I am aware that this can be quite subjective which is why experimenting with the three main sound schemes to find one that suits your tastes is very important
This is the first time I have broken the nearly £100 price tier for a gaming headset, but the fact is has the versatility to be able to connect to different devices for use as well as the performance I am getting from it, means the £90 price makes this a top tier headset for the high mid-range price point. For the asking price you will not find a more diverse capable headset than the Wireless Xbox Headset and I am already looking at Xbox games still to come such as HALO Infinite, Forza Horizon 5 and Starfield in 2022 to really appreciate just how good this headset really is. If you are in the market to upgrade your audio game to meet the new generation consoles in the Series X/S or if you are still on an Xbox One, this headset is well worth the investment.
The Xbox Wireless Headset is available now from most retailers for the RRP of £89.99, an additional single license purchase will be needed for the Dolby Atmos and DTS Headphone: X sound apps.

Review of the SteelSeries H Wireless
The SteelSeries H Wireless headset for gamers comes in a stylish and colorful black and orange package. The design emphasizes the serious intentions of the brand, and the color scheme is typical and familiar to SteelSeries. Inside you can find the actual headset and base station. The package is impressive: power adapter tips, batteries, USB cable, Xbox Chat cable, accompanying documentation, and a logo sticker.
SteelSeries H Wireless weighs only three hundred grams, but looks massive. For its manufacture, high-quality matte plastic was used, glossy inserts are present only on the cups. The level of performance is very high and does not disappoint. The rim is strong, thick, withstands significant loads. The pads are filled with Memory Foam polyurethane foam, which adapts to individual anatomical features and guarantees wearing comfort. For the ear cushions, the same material was chosen, and a soft leather substitute acts as a coating. Separate details – mesh and stitch – are made in orange. As a result, the developers managed to embody the SteelSeries corporate identity in H Wireless. On the reverse side, the cups are closed with round removable lids. The second battery is hidden on the left, the capacity of which is enough for twenty hours of continuous operation. On the right is a miniUSB port for updating the firmware. Here you can see all the controls: the volume control, the power button, the analog port and the chat connector.
The H Wireless has a retractable microphone that does not interfere with your main movements, and is easy to reach if necessary. The package includes a relay module – through it you can set the signal parameters. There is also a display. Pressing the scroll button means confirming the selection, turning the wheel means activating the desired value in the menu.
When connected to a computer, H Wireless is immediately detected and all drivers are installed. After starting the headset, the rest of the indicators are adjusted. For convenience, a white indication is provided.
The main advantage of H Wireless is the sound. For movies, it’s better to set up Dolby – it’s more pleasant to watch action movies. When listening to music, there is a lack of low frequencies. In games, the slightest rustles are heard. In H Wireless, you will hear the difference of a shot from different-caliber guns, and the salvo itself sounds as detailed as possible. The H Wireless is perfect for toys or family movies. With prolonged use of H Wireless, fatigue or discomfort is not felt. Headphones will give pleasure regardless of external circumstances.
The most unusual thing about the SteelSeries H Wireless is the way you connect to your audio source.

Despite the relatively expensive price, H Wireless is popular among the gaming community and is one of the frequently ordered products on our website. H Wireless is a professional solution without compromise.
Reviews and tests of Denon
wireless headphones The letters GC in the names of Denon headphones indicate belonging to the Global Cruiser series and now is the time to remember this again. The fact is that we got two very similar outwardly similar and equivalent in class models “for the city and traveling” for listening. But they were clearly created for completely different routes.
In our reviews, we often hinted that a true personal audio lover should have several sets of headphones in order to not make any compromises in any listening conditions. But today we can say exactly the opposite, because we were sent a rather cool and truly universal model for testing.
While most music lovers have already developed a positive attitude towards Bluetooth headphones as a way to get both quite acceptable quality and obvious convenience, more demanding music lovers still have prejudices against wireless technology. We will try to dispel them using the example of two advanced in-channel models with a “blue-toothed” module.
Denon engineers have made headphones reliable. All structural elements (headband, hinges and forks for attaching bowls) are made of lightweight aluminum. You can be sure that the headphones will last a very long time, it is almost impossible to break them by accident.
We all try not to miss the opportunity to combine business with pleasure. It is from this angle that we propose to look at the new Denon Bluetooth headphones. With this headset, you can not only go in for sports or travel, but at the same time move into a parallel musical reality. And, as you will see later, this is not such a banal task.
The popularity of wireless headphones is growing day by day: new models appear, current ones are improved, and the development of protocols for better sound quality does not stand still. And today we will analyze the main issues that concern the buyer and listener when buying wireless headphones.
This model belongs to the universal “tourist” phones with active noise reduction. It is capable of operating in three modes: as ordinary wired headphones, as a Bluetooth headset for receiving phone calls, and as high-end wireless stereo phones.
This headset is made for those who travel a lot. However, music lovers will be pleased to know that the AH-W200 already supports the Bluetooth 3.0 specification and provides a CD-quality wireless link from the source. At the same time, the functionality of the telephone headset is preserved – you can answer the call.
Headphones are made in the form of an active wireless Bluetooth headset and are addressed to those who like to listen to music while doing fitness or sports.
This page contains reviews and tests of Denon wireless headphones from experts around the world.
