HyperX Now Official Licensed Headset for Xbox One 1
HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced an agreement with Microsoft to be an official
licensed headset partner for Xbox
. HyperX CloudX Pro
Gaming Headset will ship in late Q2 2016. When the HyperX Cloud Series launched
in 2014, it was aimed squarely at PC gamers. HyperX CloudX is the company’s
first foray into the gaming console market as it plugs directly into Xbox One
controllers with a 3.5mm port.
Based on the
award-winning HyperX Cloud II
design, HyperX CloudX brings a new level of audio performance to console gamers.
It delivers every gunshot, explosion and dialogue in crystal-clear sound via
large 53mm drivers. HyperX CloudX has convenient in-line volume controls and uses
memory foam ear cushions as well as a soft leather-padded headband with custom
stitching for enhanced comfort and style. The over-the-ear, closed-cup design
helps block out ambient noise for a more immersive game experience. HyperX
CloudX also features a detachable microphone and comes with a hard shell carrying
case to protect the headset when traveling or not in use. Further product details will be
provided when it ships in late Q2.

expertise to the console world,” said Ann Bai, Sales Director, APAC Region,

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.”
