CES 2018: HyperX announces Wireless Cloud Flight Headset and RGB range

Kingston-backed gaming brand HyperX has kicked off their CES 2018 product showcase by announcing their first fully-wireless gaming headset.

“The showcase at CES underscores the HyperX commitment to bringing high-performing gaming products to gamers of all levels - whether playing your favorite FPS console game, in a head-to-head PC gaming matchup, or in an esports tournament with players from across the globe,” the company said.

Headlining the company’s CES presence, the new HyperX Cloud Flight promises up to 30 hours of battery life, with the company promising easy setup via plug and play connectivity.  The new headphones will also boast 90-degree rotating ear cups with customizable LED lighting effects and 50mm drivers. It’s also TeamSpeak and Discord certified.

Audiophiles will also be able to tinker with the the audio output on the Cloud Flight headphones via an intuitive interface. In addition, it’ll be possible to use the new headphones in a traditional wired mode.

When it arrives to Australia in February, the HyperX Cloud Flight Wireless Headset will be available for a local RRP of $229.

HyperX also announced that they would be shifting gears to offer new variants of their Pulsefire FPS mouse and Alloy FPS keyboard that supported customizable RGB lighting.

The HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB mouse features dynamic 360° RGB lighting effects and is designed with the Pixart 3389 sensor for accuracy and speed, with settings up to 16,000 DPI.

It comes accompanied by the company's latest keyboard: the HyperX Alloy Elite RGB. Like the original, the Alloy Elite RGB is built with a sturdy solid steel frame, dedicated media buttons, a pass-through USB 2.0 port, quick access lighting control, and is available in red, brown or blue CHERRY® MX key switches. However, this time around, the accessory supports up to three custom lighting profiles that can be saved directly to the keyboard’s on-board memory for on-the-go lighting.

Both products are be customized using HyperX's new NGenuity software.

Pricing and local availability for these products is currently to-be-confirmed. However, they are expected to arrive on Australian shores at some point in 2018.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
