    HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of the HyperX Cloud gaming headset. HyperX Cloud features extremely comfortable ear cushions and larger audio drivers to give gamers ultimate comfort and superior sound during long game play sessions.

    HyperX Cloud uses memory foam ear cushions and a soft, leather-padded headband with custom stitching for enhanced comfort and style. The over-the-ear, closed-cup design helps block out ambient noise for a more immersive game experience. Interchangeable velour ear cushions allow gamers to hear their surroundings while also delivering dialogue and every explosion and gunfire in clear, high-fidelity audio from the large 53mm drivers. HyperX Cloud also features a detachable microphone and is made of aluminum for durability.

    "HyperX worked with Swedish manufacturer QPAD to create a headset that delivers comfort and superb sound for long game play. This is a winning combination as QPAD is known for high-quality gaming peripherals throughout Europe," said Lawrence Yang, business manager, HyperX. "We think the hours will pass by without notice as gamers wear the HyperX Cloud headset."

    HyperX Cloud is compatible with PC and PS4 as well as smartphones and tablets. It is the official headset of Intel Extreme Masters, Alliance Gaming, CNB e-Sports Club, SK-Gaming and Team Liquid. HyperX Cloud is backed by a two-year warranty and legendary HyperX reliability.

    Was actually looking at the QPAD to replace my razer headset but not very easy to find it in the US. So hopefully this is widely available.

    EDIT: Found on Newegg. Can I expect TPU to do a review?

    ah okay, since they said they did some changes like the 53mm drivers, I thought that was advances over the QH-90, seems like they are identical, just Hyper X branding.

    Still cool way of bring this particular headset to US markets. Gonna pick one up soon when I head back to school for the summer. Need something to game with. Still need to send my Razer headset in for RMA too.

    Qpad QH-85 and QH-90 seems to be the headset version of Takstar Hi-2050 and Pro 80 respectively. It's available around 45-70usd online. The reviews over at head-fi had been good to rave on these headphones.

    Do that! I have both Qpad's QH-90 and QH-85, they are incredibly comfortable. It rivals Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic in terms of comfort.

    I did, am glad I did. Listening to some music on Pandora with them right now. They are awesome! Best headphones I have ever owned (Though I havent heard much from other options, but for gaming headsets these are probably the best). I am using them with my laptop with a mediocre sound chip too. Can't wait to try them on my main rig when I am on it again. These things are so comfortable and I havent even switched to the other ear things.
