HyperX Now Shipping the Cloud Orbit and Cloud Orbit S Gaming Headsets

HyperX, a gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., today announced the release of HyperX Cloud Orbit and Cloud Orbit S gaming headsets. Both headsets feature 100 mm Audeze planar magnetic drivers and offer Waves Nx 3D audio. The premium Cloud Orbit S headset includes Waves Nx head tracking technology to create a 3D audio experience while tracking head movements 1000 times a second. Gamers looking for affordable audiophile quality sound will find Cloud Orbit headsets deliver high resolution audio while gaming or listening to music. For audiophiles comparing similar headsets with planar drivers that typically cost thousands of dollars, Cloud Orbit is a premium headset that delivers audio quality audio at an attractive price under $300.

Both the Cloud Orbit and Cloud Orbit S headsets utilize 100 mm planar magnetic drivers and 3D audio technology to provide clear, realistic audio while creating an enhanced sound localization in a three-dimensional sound space. These Cloud Orbit headsets offer integrated audio controls located on the earcup to easily toggle features including HyperX custom-tuned 7.1 surround sound with a touch of a button. They also offer advanced audio customization to easily calibrate 3D audio settings to individual user measurements, customizable room ambiance, and built-in preset EQ profiles.
"Our goal was to produce a headset that meets the standards of gamers and audiophiles alike," said Marcus Hermann, senior business manager, HyperX. "The HyperX Cloud Orbit headsets focus on what gamers want - comfort, audio performance, build quality, and the ability to use them on multiple platforms."

With 3D head tracking technology, the Cloud Orbit S tracks head position and movements 1000 times a second to pinpoint sound localization and accuracy. The headset also provides a gesture control feature that can be paired with the HyperX Orbit S software to map head gestures to equivalent key presses on a keyboard. This functionality could be used as an alternative input method for gamers with limited mobility or used as an advantage by having additional head gesture inputs available.

The Cloud Orbit and Cloud Orbit S headsets feature a detachable noise cancelling mic with flexible boom and built-in pop filter, three detachable cable options for multi-device compatibility, onboard audio and mic control for quick access to 3D audio settings, EQ profiles, and volume and mic control with audible indicators to check headset settings.
