CES has seen some exceptionally cool announcements so far, from Samsung's tricksy curved gaming monitor, or this PC case which opens and closes its vents depending on temperature. Some CES innovations are somewhat more practical, similar to this new wireless headset that boasts 300 hours of battery life in a single charge.
HyperX headsets are already known for generally being excellent. Their wireless models especially take the cake, so chances are the new HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless gaming headset will be one to watch. Despite that tremendous battery life, HyperX claims it's not a lot heavier than the previous version but rather I'd still want to give one a shot prior to committing my head.
Otherwise it seems like a solid headset. It features DTS Headphone X spatial audio, which should provide players with a real sense of being in a 3D space with sound realistically coming from all directions. Then, at that point, there's the new dual chamber drives which claim to be slimmer and lighter than those from the wired version, while still matching the sound quality. To top everything off there's a noise cancelling removable mic that comes with one of the always accommodating LED indicators for when you're on quiet. It should be available in February at $199.99 USD.
The two other HyperX headsets included in the line up are the new HyperX Cloud II gaming headset and the HyperX Cloud Core gaming headset. We discovered a smidgen more about the wireless HyperX Cloud Core late last year, as it also has DTS Headphone X spatial audio capability. We should see it hit shelves in January at $69.99. The HyperX Cloud II, then again, is expected out in March for $99.99 USD. It's outfitted with an advanced audio control box for 7.1 for virtual surround sound, and presently comes in pink and white.
HyperX also showed off the company's Clutch Wireless gaming regulator which works with cell phones or PCs, however has a special, detachable clasp for the previous. It's battery life isn't exactly the 300 hours of the new headset however, yet it does come packing rechargeables which convey 19 hours from a single charge. The Clutch is set to turn out in March at $49.99.
The company's new Pulsefire Haste wireless gaming mouse, and Alloy Origins 65 mechanical gaming keyboard are also looking like pleasant additions to the HyperX line up. They're also both due out in February for $79.99, and $99.99 respectively.
