HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., is now shipping its HyperX CloudX pro gaming headset. HyperX first announced itspartnership with Microsoft in January to create an official licensed headset for Xbox One.
HyperX CloudX has an in-line audio control allowing users to adjust volume and mute the detachable noise-cancelling microphone right on the cable. The headset’s durable silver aluminum frame and matte black finishes complement the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller for a stylish matching setup. CloudX also comes with an hard shell carrying case for protection and convenient portability.
Based on the award-winning HyperX Cloud II design, CloudX offers the same comfort and immersive audio with 100-percent memory foam ear cushions and headband, and sound via large 53mm drivers. Additionally, certification by TeamSpeak and compatibility with Discord, Skype, Ventrilo, Mumble and RaidCall all equal an improved chat experience.
“The HyperX Cloud family has gained notoriety for its comfort, quality and value add,” said Lawrence Yang, HyperX global business manager. “We have designed CloudX with the same award winning features and added console conveniences and premium accessories all while keeping gamer’s budgets in mind to maintain an exceptional price point.”
HyperX CloudX ships with interchangeable velour ear cups, a 2M PC extension cable and a hard shell carrying case, and has an MSRP of $99.99 (USD). In the United States, it is available now at Best Buy and GameStop.
