Pitched less evolved in the tech realm (given this series of headsets is already so good), and more from an ergonomic-slash
-comfort level (with the slogan "comfort, evolved"), the HyperX Cloud III
gaming headset was announced at this year's Computex 2023
, alongside a new range of in-ear options from the gaming and PC peripheral giant.
Here's the official info fresh from the showfloor:
HyperX Cloud III Gaming Headset: HyperX has built its now-legendary Cloud gaming headset product line on signature HyperX comfort, and the attention to detail continues with Cloud III. Equipped with the re-engineered 53mm angled drivers and DTS® Headphone:X®, it also delivers immersive and accurate 3D audio spatialisation. HyperX's acoustic engineering team custom tuned the headset's drivers for optimal sound and precision. The Cloud III is also designed for extended gaming sessions, thanks to its plush HyperX memory foam ear cushions and extra padding in the headband. The headset includes an ultra-clear 10mm microphone with noise-cancellation and an internal metal mesh pop filter that reduces disruptive noise. It also has simple onboard audio and mic controls, and is compatible with PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. The headset features 3.5mm, USB-C, and USB-A connectors and comes with a slim US adapter that provides both USB-C and USB-A connectivity.
In addition to the showstopper above, HyperX also introduced the Cirro Buds Pro
which are "true wireless earbuds" offering "precision noise cancelling with hybrid active noise cancellation technology to ensure clear sound".
The Cirro Buds Pro earbuds also provide an ambient sound mode for users to stay connected to their surroundings, as well as low-latency audio connectivity for mobile gaming. With Bluetooth® 5.2 connectivity, these earbuds provide wireless freedom while offering HyperX durability with an IPX4 water-resistant rating, and the protective charging case can fully charge the earbuds in just 40 minutes. The earbuds feature three sets of ear tips for a personalised and secure fit and up to 35 hours of battery life. The Cirro Buds Pro are available in black, blue and tan colourways.
The Cloud III Gaming Headset will be made available in Australia from May 31 for a AUD$159 SRP, while info on the availability of the Cirro Buds Pro will be revealed soon, so stay tuned.
