Kingston unveils HyperX Cloud headset
We are used to seeing memory from Kingston Technology, but the latest company product is not such – the acclaimed memory maker has come up with a new headset this time that carries the popular HyperX brand name.
Speaking of it, the full brand name of the headset is HyperX Cloud and it is a really interesting high-end solution. Its central feature is its ear cushions that are made of memory foam and include a custom-stitched leather-padded headband for extreme comfort. A solid aluminum construction finishes the picture but there’s more – the HyperX Cloud comes with a dynamic closed 53 mm driver with a claimed frequency response of 15-25 000 Hz and a sound pressure level of 98 dB. Users also get a condenser microphone too and you can also use the HyperX Cloud as a simple pair of headphones. The headset specs finish with a 1m braided cable and a 2m extension which can be swapped for a bundled 10 cm iPhone connector.
Kingston appears serious when making headsets – the company has made efforts to see the HyperX Cloud become the official headset of Intel Extreme Masters, Alliance Gaming and other such organizations. Unfortunately the memory maker said nothing when it comes to the HyperX Cloud price and its availability.
