HyperX released their Cloud II headset last year and improved on their original headset. Those models were originally intended for PC Gamers but was usable on console via the chat adapter. HyperX has officially become a licensed partner of Xbox and have announced their first headset for the Xbox One. The HyperX CloudX Pro will feature the same design and sound as the Cloud II, and will include an in-line volume control as well as a hard shell case for transporting.
“We are proud to work with Microsoft on its Xbox One gaming platform and bring our headset expertise to the console world,” said Anders Willumsen, general manager, HyperX Division. “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 HyperX CloudX Pro will be available in late Q2 of this year with no word on pricing. Stay tuned to Official RTV for more on HyperX from CES.
