HyperX has a new wireless headset — a first for the company. There's also a new RGB Alloy Elite keyboard and Pulsefire Surge mouse, perfect for gamers looking to upgrade to new hardware. HyperX is a familiar brand when it comes to gaming gear, offering some exceptional value compared to offerings from other vendors. The three new products at CES 2018 allow budding gamers to upgrade their setup and take advantage of advanced features under a single brand.
HyperX Cloud Flight Wireless Headset
The Cloud Flight is the company's first wireless headset, offering up to 30 hours of use without being shackled to a PC — that's a serious number of hours and bests what competitors have available to-date. HyperX not only beats everyone in the battery race but also in terms of comfort which is also the case with the company's other headset families. The new Cloud Flight is super-comfy.
There are also 50mm drivers for solid sound production and is even Discord certified with a detachable noise-canceling microphone to boot. The RGB lighting is a nice touch to keep it in line with other accessories, but activating it will not only kill your battery but also make for a pointless light show you cannot enjoy while they're strapped to your head.
- Driver: Dynamic, 50mm with neodymium magnets
- Frequency response: Wireless: 20Hz–20,000Hz, Analog: 15Hz–23,000Hz
- Impedance: 32 Ω
- Sound pressure level: 106dBSPL/mW at 1kHz
- T.H.D.: < 2%
- Weight: 300g
- Cable length and type: USB charge cable (1m), Detachable 3.5mm headphone cable (1.3m)
- Battery life: 30 hours (LED off), 18 hours (breathing LED), 13 hours (LED on)
The new headset will retail for $159.99 and is available now in various markets.
HyperX Alloy Elite RGB Mechanical Keyboard
HyperX is switching things up and RGB lighting is quickly replacing the familiar red accent we've come to know and respect of the brand. The Alloy Elite RGB keyboard is an upgrade to the Alloy Elite mechanical beast that sports smart RGB lighting effects with the support of NGenuity software. The keyboard even has onboard memory dedicated to storing up to three lighting profiles, perfect for those who cannot game without bright lights.
There are some functional features too like a sturdy steel frame, dedicated media buttons, USB 2.0 pass through, and the choice of red, brown or blue Cherry MX switches. You also get the usual game mode, N-key rollover, and anti-ghosting support. Like the headset, the Alloy Elite RGB is available now and retails for $169.99.
HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB Mouse
Sporting the Pixart 3389 sensor for solid levels of accuracy and speed, the Pulsefire Surge RGB is a worthy companion for PC gaming. Configurable with DPI levels of up to 16,000, it's posible to monitor settings and whatnot with an LED indicator. Included Omron switches come with a 50 million click reliability guarantee and the mouse can be configured with HyperX's NGenuity software.
The Pulsefire Surge RGB mouse will be available in 2018 Q2 for $69.99.
