Kingston Shows Off HyperX Gaming Headphones at MWC


We just saw Kingston in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. At the time, the company was previewing a new product it was prepping for release in the spring, but it wasn't quite ready to talk details. That product was a HyperX-branded gaming headset. Now, a month and a half later, Kingston was happy to dish details on the newest member of its HyperX family.


This headset is part of a collaboration with Swedish company QPad. The HyperX Cloud gaming headset is actually a rejigged QH-90 from QPad, though a Kingston rep at last night's Pepcom event was quick to point out all the ways that Kingston changed these headphones to make them its own. Users can expect memory foam ear cups, a light-weight aluminum frame, a detachable mic, and 53 mm drivers. There's also a padded headband and an inline controller with a volume wheel, a slide button for mic on/off, and a mic mute button.



Kingston isn't talking about price just yet, but the company promised a mid-range price point; we've heard whisperings that it will cost somewhere around $100. Release date is scheduled for early April.

    I'm sure it comes with the girl since it doesn't say anywhere on the package "human girl not included".

    :insert chauvinistic comment about the girl's breasts and oral abilities:

    EDIT: dammit! I mean aural abilities, aural!
