HyperX Launches New Cloud MIX Gaming Headset with Bluetooth Technology

HyperX™, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company Inc., today announced HyperX Cloud MIX, its first Bluetooth®-enabled gaming headset built for gamers on-the-go. Combining stellar sound with a sleek look and uncompromised comfort, the versatile CloudMIX is designed for gaming, music listening and voice chat, delivering wired and cord-free entertainment.

Designed with Cloud DNA, as seen in other HyperX headsets, the Cloud MIX features dual chamber technology and 40mm drivers for vivid and accurate sound. Integrating high quality hardware and performance, the Cloud MIX is intended for gamers wanting a wired connection for console and PC gaming and a Bluetooth option for on-the-go entertainment. The gaming headset is Hi-Res Audio certified and meets Hi-Res sound requirements up to 40,000 Hz while wired.

“Creating the perfect headset for the growing gaming community was a natural next step for HyperX,” said Julien Millet, audio business manager, HyperX EMEA. “Our goal was to produce a headset that not only meets the standards of a professional gamer, but also offers the versatility for anyone to use anywhere. Simply plug in the Cloud MIX for hours of PC or console gaming or switch to Bluetooth mode to listen to music or chat wherever you are.”

The Cloud MIX is equipped with two microphone options, a flexible detachable gaming mic that is TeamSpeak and Discord Certified for game chat, and an internal built-in mic for Bluetooth mode offering a more travel-friendly headset for phone calls, mobile gaming and other entertainment.

Cloud MIX also offers intuitive onboard controls for quick access to audio and mic controls, including audible indicators displaying headphone status in Bluetooth mode. Cloud Mix features a detachable braided cable and is compatible in wired mode with platforms with 3.5mm ports and compatibility in wireless mode with Bluetooth-ready media devices for up to 20 hours of use.1

HyperX takes the tagline We’re All Gamers to heart. Whether you are an amateur or professional player, our goal is to meet or exceed customer expectations with every wired or Bluetooth gaming headset, keyboard, mouse or mousepad we design.
