HyperX CloudX pro-gaming headsets were launched today in Bangalore. These pro-gaming headsets are official licensed headsets for the Microsoft Xbox console, hence the X in front of the cloud. HyperX, a division of Kingston technologies that focusses on high end gaming equipments and on DDR3, DDR4 RAM, flash drives and SSD’s.

The latest model of the cloud series comes with detachable noise-cancelling earphones, which can be used to communicate with team members on a multiplayer game. I got a chance to try on the headsets while playing FIFA 16 on the Xbox and let me tell you that these headsets are very soft on the ears and light on the head, these qualities make this headphone ideal for long playing hours. The headphones come in a clamshell case, which has the headset, the optional green ear cups, the detachable mic and the included wiring.
