The Cloud Alpha Wireless headset for PC gamers shows just how energy-efficient a consumer device can be. It lasts 300 hours between charges—multiple times the duration of competitors. “The design philosophy was, How do we get the most power out of a battery for the longest period of time?” says Daniel Kelley, head of global marketing at HP-owned HyperX. The headset uses an ultra-low-energy transceiver, audio codec, and chips that sip power sparingly from a 1,500-milliamp battery. It also has super-cushy ear pads, important for extended sessions.
