The new HyperX CloudX gaming headset for the Xbox One is available now.
Developed in a partnership with Microsoft, HyperX's new CloudX gaming headset is an officially licensed Xbox headset designed for use with Elite wireless controllers or any Xbox One controllers with a 3.5mm stereo headset jack. It's also Windows compatible and includes a 2M PC extension cable with stereo and microphone plugs.
The CloudX boasts in-line audio control to adjust volume and mute the mic on the fly, a hard-shell carrying case for travel, 100% memory foam ear cushions, and HiFi capable 53mm drivers enclosed in a closed up design. Two sets of interchangeable ear cups (velour cushions) help with sound isolation and optimal on-ear comfort. In other words, these headphones not only sound good and are comfortable, but they isolate you from environmental noise.
“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.”
The CloudX also features a detachable noise-canceling microphone so this headset can function for gaming as well as music and movies.
