The HyperX Cloud Alpha wireless headset boasts a 300-hour battery life.
At CES 2022, HyperX announced a number of significant announcements, including the introduction of a number of new gaming accessories.
Console gamers have always been treated as second-class citizens when it comes to gaming peripherals. Of course, keyboards and mouse are primarily used as PC gaming peripherals, and the majority of customization software is designed for desktop computers.
Although this has altered in recent years, most headsets were designed with PC gaming in mind.
However, for most people, a gamepad is the most iconic console gaming peripheral, and there have been few options outside of first-party controllers until lately. High-end attachments from firms like Scuf, Razer, and, most recently, HyperX are now available to gamers.
The new $50 HyperX Clutch gaming controller comes with a USB-C to USB-A connector with a 19-hour battery life for Android and PC. The Clutch controller now supports Android mobile devices through 2.4GHz wireless and Bluetooth.
Despite its resemblance to a Microsoft Xbox controller, the Clutch features an extensible grip that allows gamers to use phones with a width of up to 86mm. Because the controller may also be used as a PC game controller, the grip can be removed when not in use.
If you’re weary of having to buy an Android gaming controller and a phone mount separately, the HyperX Clutch includes a removable clip that securely holds the best Android phones in place, making gaming a breeze.
It has a recognizable button arrangement and Xbox-style design, as well as a turbo button that may be used in certain games. The package includes textured grips and a mobile clip, allowing you to use it with your Android phone for cloud gaming and similar activities.
It differs from its Bluetooth counterparts in that it can also connect to your Android phone through 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, lowering latency.
This is useful if you’re streaming an Xbox Game Pass game over mobile connection and don’t want your controller to lag. For good measure, it also includes Bluetooth 4.2 connection.
HyperX also announced the HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless headset at the same time. This headset is touted as the world’s first to offer a 300-hour battery life on a single charge. The headset comes with 50mm drivers and a 20-meter range.
HyperX wrapped up the announcements with the Pulsefire Haste Wireless gaming mouse, which has a 100-hour battery life. There’s also the HyperX Alloy Origins 65 if you need a new keyboard.
The HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless headset will be available in stores in February 2022 for $199.99, while the HyperX Clutch controller will be available in March for $49.99. The Pulsefire Haste Wireless gaming mouse and the Alloy Origins 65 keyboard, both priced at $79.99 and $99.99, will be available in February.
However, because to the ongoing pandemic, shipping delays may cause the accessories to be released at a later date, depending on availability and your precise location.
