After an agreement with Microsoft, company Kingston’s offshoot HyperX will now be an officially licensed headset partner for Xbox One. HyperX is proud to announce that HyperX CloudX Pro Gaming Headset will be shipping starting late Q2 of this year. With 53mm drivers, HyperX CloudX will deliver crystal-clear sound with in-line volume controls and memory foam ear cushions. Right now, there is no exact release date, but starting today through Friday, the headset will be on display at the company’s meetings at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. While this is not open to the public, it is possible we will get more information when the meetings come to an end this weekend.
“We are proud to work with Microsoft on its Xbox One gaming platform and bring our headset expertise to the console world,” said Anders Willumsen, general manager, HyperX Division. “We have always known we would enter the gaming console market since releasing our first headset for PC gamers almost two years ago. There are natural synergies between our two companies as HyperX has a strong PC presence and the Xbox One console provides deeper integration with PC gaming via the Xbox App on Windows 10.”
This headset will also come with features that are expected out of top of the line gaming headphones, including removable microphone and hard shell carrying case. Not much more is known other than the design will be based off of their award winning HyperX Cloud II headset for the PC. HyperX sponsors more than 25 eSports teams and is generally at big conventions such as gamescom, PAX, Brazil Game Show, etc. Hopefully more details will be shown off in the next few months, and possibly even demoed at PAX South or PAX East.
