HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology, unveiled the Cloud Flight – the first wireless headset in company’s portfolio. In terms of design, the Cloud Flight is similar to the award-winning Cloud Stinger, but it is devoid of any cords.
The Cloud Flight headset offers 30-hour battery life in a single charge and comes with 50mm neodymium drivers. It is also Discord and TeamSpeak certified and has a removable noise-canceling microphone.
The headset is made of plastic, save for the adjustable steel sliders, but it looks and feels solid. It weighs only 10.5oz (300 grams) and the headband is covered with a foam pad for optimal comfort.
The earcups feature a red illuminated HyperX logo but the LEDs drain the battery too fast. Users should not expect more than 13 hours battery life provided that the LEDs are always on.
The left earcup houses the power button and the mute switch, while the volume knob is located on the right earcup. However, it is important to mention that users cannot change game and chat volume independently.
The Cloud Flight works wirelessly with PC and PS4. Xbox One players can use the headset by plugging the 3.5mm cable into the Xbox controller.
The HyperX Cloud will be launching with a $159.99 MSRP. It is expected to be available for purchase via HyperX official store and third-party retailers soon.
