PAX West 2016: HyperX Showcases New Gaming Headset and Keyboard
HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston, was out in force on the floor of PAX West 2016. Fans got the chance to try out HyperX goodies already out in the market as well as some new soon-to-be-released ones. On the soon-to-be-released front, HyperX showcased the HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset. Here’s what we have on each…
HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
The HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard features Cherry MX Blue switches and is built on a steel frame. That frame utilizes a minimalist design, confining the keyboard’s real-estate with very a thin boarder around the outer keys. There’s very little surface area on the keyboard that not allocated to actual keys. The keys themselves are back-lit in “HyperX red” and sport a selection of dynamic lighting effects. The HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard also comes with a dust bag for transport, a set of red textured WASD keys and a key cap puller for easy replacement of those keys.
The HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is coming soon and will go for $99.99.
HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset
The HyperX Cloud Stinger is the latest addition to HyperX’s growing gaming headset line. The HyperX Cloud Stinger sports memory foam-covered ear cups that rotate 90 degrees. The headset’s mic flips up with a snap to mute outbound chat. Also, a master volume control dial sits at the bottom of the right ear cup for on-the-fly volume control.
The HyperX Cloud Stinger is not only the latest but also the most affordable headset in the HyperX gaming headset family, coming in at only $49.99.
