HyperX CloudX Announced For Xbox One

Today HyperX and Microsoft announced an agreement that HyperX would be the official licensed partner for Xbox One. As part of the announcement, HyperX have also already announced the first headset that is planned to be released later this year, the HyperX CloudX.

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. The image above should give you an idea of what it will look like as the Cloud series has a consistent look and feel throughout.

“We are proud to work with Microsoft on their Xbox One gaming platform and bring our headset expertise to the console world,” said Ann Bai, Sales Director, APAC Region, HyperX. “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.”

The unit on track for release in Q2 2016, which means sometime this year, be sure to keep up to date via the official site, or here for more details as they come to light.
