HyperX, the gaming peripherals division of HP Inc, has introduced the HyperX Cloud MIX Buds, a new True Wireless in-ear gaming headset. Designed specifically for gaming and esports, it offers dual wireless connectivity via 2.4 GHz and Bluetooth 5.2, as well as rich sound via DTS Headphone:X.
HyperX Cloud MIX Buds: All the info on the new headset
The HyperX Cloud MIX Buds mark the first true-wireless in-ear gaming headset from the peripheral manufacturer and sound extremely exciting, at least on paper. Dynamic drivers with a considerable size of 12 mm are used for the sound, which also support DTS Headphone:X for a 7.1 surround sound with a precise spatiality. There does not seem to be any active noise cancellation, as in the case of the Asus ROG Cetra True Wireless.
The drivers cover a frequency response of 10 Hz to 20,400 Hz at 32 ohms and come up with an impressive sound pressure level of 106.5±3 dBSPL/mW at 1 kHz. The omnidirectional MEMS microphone covers a frequency response of 50 Hz – 6.7 kHz, which should indicate good dynamic range. A sensitivity of -16 dBV (1V/Pa at 1 kHz, 94 dB) should also bring across even quiet voice recordings well.
TWS in-ears with dual connectivity
HyperX NGENUITY software also lets you personalize your preferred sound profile, including EQs, and reassign touch controls. With the 2.4 GHz USB-C wireless adapter, the Cloud MIX Buds offer a fast wireless connection suitable for gaming. Bluetooth 5.2 is also included for the daily connection with smartphones and the like.
The included USB-C to USB-C desktop adapter simplifies setup and offers the option to switch between 2.4 GHz and Bluetooth connectivity. Also included are silicone ear tips in three different sizes, which should deliver the best possible wearing comfort. The charging case, including a silicone protector for the 2.4 GHz USB-C adapter, protects the Earbuds from damage.
The battery life is also impressive. The manufacturer talks about a total of up to 33 hours combined with the Earbuds and charging case. The headphones themselves are supposed to offer up to 10 hours of battery life. They are charged within two hours. Together with the case, the charging time via USB Type-C is four hours.
Price and Availability
The HyperX Cloud MIX Buds are expected to make their way to retailers by the end of June 2022. The manufacturer’s MSRP is 159.99 euros. For more information, head directly to the product website.
