HyperX – a division of Kingston – in partnership with Microsoft, has launched CloudX Pro gaming headset especially for Xbox One. The device is going to be sold on both retail and online platforms for a price of Rs. 9,999.
Back in January, the company had partnered with Microsoft to develop a licensed headset for Xbox One. HyperX produces high-performance products for Kingston Technology.
CloudX has a silver aluminum frame and matte black finish to complement the Xbox Wireless Controller for a matching and stylish setup, accompanied by an exclusive hard shell carrying case for protection and convenient portability. The 100-percent memory foam ear cushions and headband take care of the comfort level of gamers. The large 53mm drivers ensure crystal clear sound so players can keep them engaged for hours of gaming on Xbox One and other consoles. HyperX CloudX has an in-line audio control that allows users to adjust volume and mute the detachable noise-cancelling microphone.
Following are the specs of HyperX CloudX:
3.5mm stereo headset jack with 2M-PC extension cable with stereo and mic plugs
100% memory foam ear cushions
53-mm dynamic drivers, HiFi capable
15-Hz to 25,000Hz frequency response

CloudX is an official Xbox-licensed headset and is bound to give optimal sound and mic frequency and response. It seems like the ultimate gear for gamers, and the Microsoft licensing also is a major factor. While it does sound promising, how well it does in comparison to the likes of Logitech G230 and Sennheiser Game One, can only be told in time.
