CES 2021: HyperX presents new gaming accessories

The gaming experts at HyperX have unveiled exciting new gaming products at this year’s CES 2021. In addition to the HyperX Alloy Origin 60 mechanical gaming keyboard, the company also presented matching charging accessories. That’s not all. On top of that, Kingston’s gaming division announced global availability of the Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse, as well as the Cloud II Wireless and Cloud Revolver 7.1 gaming headsets.

Mechanical Gaming Keyboard HyperX Alloy Origins 60

One of the new launches is the HyperX Alloy Origins 60 mechanical gaming keyboard, and what makes this keyboard special is its form factor. Thus, HyperX has developed here its first gaming keyboard in the space-saving layout of just 60 percent. The keyboard’s mechanical switches rely on a bright red color and are said to have a pleasingly short actuation point.

As a result, HyperX wants to achieve the shortest possible release time. Victory-hungry gamers should also be able to enjoy macro settings and a special gaming mode. Three different profiles can be saved in the keyboard itself. The linchpin of the individual settings is supposed to be the in-house HyperX NGENUITY software.

Practical controller charging station for Xbox controllers

Furthermore, HyperX has also presented a practical accessory for all those who prefer to gamble with a controller instead of a mouse and keyboard. The ChargePlay Duo controller charging station was developed quite specifically for the Xbox. Both the controllers of the old console generation and those of the next-gen consoles from Microsoft are compatible.

HyperX relies on a convenient quick-docking design for the charging station, as well as LED indicators that inform you about the battery level of your controller. You don’t have to buy additional battery packs with the charging station. Fortunately, HyperX includes two 1400 mAh batteries.

Pulsefire Haste now with expanded availability

The Pulsefire Haste is a gaming mouse that relies on an ultra-light honeycomb design. This is said to result in not only a very light weight, but also very good ventilation. HyperX uses TTC Golden Micro Dustproof switches that can withstand a total of 60 million clicks. On top of that, the mouse has six buttons that can be freely assigned.

In order for the featherweight mouse to run over the mouse pad at a correspondingly fast speed, the manufacturer installs PTFE pads that are supposed to be very low-friction. With the help of the matching NGENUITY, customized adjustments can be made here as well. Even professional gamers can really let off steam here. Not only settings like illumination and key assignment, but also individual properties for DPI can be specified here.

Cloud II Wireless and Cloud Revolver now available worldwide

Fans of good gaming sound will be pleased to hear that HyperX has announced that it is now launching two popular headsets globally. On the one hand, this is the Cloud II Wireless. At first glance, it looks like its wired predecessor. However, the big advantage is hidden in the name. It should not only have the design and performance of its predecessor, but also offer much more comfort thanks to the wireless design. Also on board is a virtual 7.1 surround sound, which is supposed to make locating opponents easier. The 53 mm drivers are supposed to provide a powerful and crystal-clear sound. Loss-free sound is provided via 2.4 GHz transmission. The attractive overall package is rounded off with a maximum battery life of up to 30 hours and a range of up to 20 meters.

The Cloud II Wireless isn’t the only headset HyperX is now unleashing on the global market. On top of that, the Cloud Revolver + 7.1 is a gaming headset for uncompromising gaming sound. HyperX still relies on a cable connection, but this has its reasons. The high-quality headset is supposed to offer studio-quality sound thanks to its high frequency range. The reason for the great sound is supposed to be the 50 mm directional drivers that the manufacturer provides for its potent headset. As the name suggests, the Cloud Revolver + 7.1 also offers a spatial 7.1 sound. This is supposed to provide accurate precision, which is a decisive advantage not least in shooters.

Prices and availability

We don’t have to wait much longer for the new announcements to reach our market. For example, the HyperX Alloy Origins gaming keyboard is scheduled to hit our stores on March 22. The ChargePlay Duo Controller charging station will hit store shelves as early as February. The MSRP in the US is 39.99 US dollars. On the other hand, we don’t have to wait any longer for the PulseFire Haste and the two gaming headsets. The three products are now available in HyperX’s online shop.
