HyperX unveils its new wireless headset—a first for the gaming company
HyperX has announced its first-ever wireless headset in the lead-up to CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
Kingston Technology's gaming arm has a wide variety of headset options for gamers, but had previously not expanded into wireless headsets. The device—called the HyperX Cloud Flight Headset—was unveiled on Jan. 8 and is a first-of-its-kind for HyperX.
HyperX claims the headset offers up to 30 hours of batter life, which would make it one of the top battery lives in a wireless headset on the market. "Sporting closed cup design with 90 degree rotating ear cups, Cloud Flight provides an immersive in-game audio experience with 50mm drivers, broadcasting at 2.4 GHz," HyperX said in a press release.
The noise-cancelling microphone is detachable, and the device works on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Controls are built-in to adjust LED effects, mic mute, power, and volume. The Cloud Flight headset will go on sale in January 2018 for $160.
HyperX's CES 2018 lineup also includes the HyperX Alloy Elite RGB mechanical keyboard and the HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB mouse.
