Now if it wasn’t clear already, Kingston is looking to separate its brand of Hyper X products into it’s own category; with providing higher end hardware for those extreme enthusiasts. With the announcement of their Hyper X Fury Line of mid range hardware at Pax East, Kingston also showed off its first full in house production gaming headset, the Hyper X Cloud.

 “HyperX worked with Swedish manufacturer QPAD to create a headset that delivers comfort and superb sound for long game play. This is a winning combination as QPAD is known for high-quality gaming peripherals throughout Europe,” said Lawrence Yang, business manager, HyperX.

QPAD is a very well known PC Hardware company, and for them to be working side by side on the headset is a huge plus. We got to check out the headset in action at their booth and they are super comfortable, and that’s due to their memory foam for a really good fit. The Cloud also includes interchangeable velour ear cushions which definitely helps to hear your surroundings.  To help with all the in game action are high-fidelity large 53mm drivers underneath large ear cups which are branded with Hyper X – No Kingston logo is present anywhere. HyperX Cloud also features a detachable microphone and is made of aluminum for durability. The headset is a PC headset but is also compatible with PS4, and other gaming consoles with the help of a converter.
