HyperX has announced a follow-up of its popular Cloud Alpha gaming headsets. The new version is called Cloud Alpha S and adds 7.1 virtual surround sound through a cable audio control box that is similar to some of the other HyperX headsets. The box also includes individual volume controls for chat and game audio.
The headphones have essentially the same comfortable design and use the same audio hardware as the previous model, including dual camera drivers, but HyperX says they have tuned a bit for better sound. There is also a new bass slider on the back that allows you to adjust the low end on the fly.
Here's the bass slider:

HyperX will put the Cloud Alpha S on sale in September for $ 129.99.
