The new HyperX Cloud Mix is a Bluetooth headset built for gamers
Hi-Res at home, Bluetooth on the go.
The new HyperX Cloud Mix gaming headset combines wired and wireless listening for gaming at home and Bluetooth 4.2 streaming on-the-go. For the most part, HyperX only makes items for those of us who love playing video games, so Bluetooth has never really been a focus. The Cloud Flight are wireless headphones, but they don't have Bluetooth. With the new Cloud Mix, HyperX wants headphones that do it all by giving you the accurate, powerful sound you need while gaming and the portability and convenience of Bluetooth.
These headphones have similar technology to other Cloud headphones like the Alpha, including 40mm drivers and dual chamber technology. While in wired listening mode, the headset meets the informal requirements for Hi-Res Audio, which means 40 kHz sound. While in Bluetooth mode, the headset's battery lasts up to 20 hours.
It includes two microphones as well. The flexible, detachable, gaming mic is certified to work with Discord and other chat programs. It has noise-cancelling to help keep ambient noise like video games from interfering with your chat. The second built-in mic is designed for use while in Bluetooth mode, can take phone calls, and allows for hands-free communication.
The Cloud Mix will be sold only at Best Buy for $199.99 and comes with a two-year warranty.
