WHO:

HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc. and leader in the gaming peripheral market.

 

 

WHAT:

HyperX’s Cloud II Wireless gaming headset is now available. The new wireless Cloud II headset builds on the legendary comfort, sound DNA, performance, and durability of the wired Cloud II, which continues to outsell in the market with over four million headsets sold since its inception.

 

 

 

Cloud II Wireless is equipped with HyperX custom-tuned virtual 7.1 surround sound 1 and 53mm drivers for immersive, rich and clear sound. This new gaming-grade wireless headset broadcasts at 2.4GHz and offers up to 30 hours of battery life 2 and 20 meters of wireless range 3 for the freedom to play, work and school from home without wires.

 

 

 

The Cloud II Wireless headset features a durable aluminum frame with an adjustable headband, pliable leatherette and plush memory foam for signature HyperX long-lasting comfort. The wireless headset also includes intuitive earcup controls to adjust volume, access mic mute and activate mic monitoring and 7.1 surround sound 1 for improved positional audio.

 

 

 

This PC, PS4™ and Nintendo Switch-compatible headset includes a noise-canceling detachable microphone that reduces background noise and the effects of plosive sounds for improved in-game and video conferencing chat. The flexible microphone features an LED mic mute indicator, built-in mic monitoring and an optional foam pop filter. Cloud II Wireless is also certified by TeamSpeak™ and Discord for seamless chat compatibility and works with HyperX’s NGENUITY software.

WHY:

First introduced in 2015, HyperX’s wired Cloud II headset shook up the industry with its iconic design, comfortable fit and best sound for a headset in its price range. Cloud II Wireless carries on the legacy of its wired predecessor, offering users the freedom to wirelessly game, work and school from home. HyperX currently holds a strong market share in U.S. wired PC headsets and the new Cloud II Wireless brings an opportunity for growth in the wireless PC headset category.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, HyperX may experience some product and shipping delays. HyperX is taking every possible measure to work with partners to minimize the impact on its customers and ensure product availability and timely delivery.
