HyperX Booth @Huashan Creative Park
The HyperX Booth is a custom-built pavilion made up of two container vans and cladded in white and having the HyperX brand showing. A large banner showing the Cloud III besides its entrance. Inside is a wall dedicated to HyperX Cloud’s history along with a Cloud III unit. The rest of the booth has demo units of Cloud III for us to try out.
Across the demo station for Cloud III is a bar with the Cirro Buds Pro True Wireless samples on display.
Here’s a product brief on both Cloud III and Cirro Buds Pro.
HyperX Cloud III Gaming Headset
“HyperX has built its, now legendary, Cloud gaming headset product line on signature HyperX comfort and the attention to detail continues with Cloud III. Equipped with the re-engineered 53mm angled drivers and DTS® Headphone:X®1, it also delivers immersive and accurate 3D audio spatialization. HyperX’s acoustic engineering team custom tuned the headset’s drivers for optimal sound and precision. The Cloud III is also designed for extended gaming sessions, thanks to its plush HyperX memory foam ear cushions and extra padding in the headband. The headset includes an ultra-clear 10mm microphone with noise-cancellation and an internal metal mesh pop filter that reduces disruptive noise. It also has simple onboard audio and mic controls, and is compatible with PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. The headset features 3.5mm, USB-C, and USB-A connectors and comes with a slim US adapter that provides both USB-C and USB-A connectivity.”
Other things to note based on questions raised to HyperX is that materials wise, we should expect the PU leather of the ear cushions to be more resilient than the older models, aside from being more comfortable. Also, the Cloud III gaming headset has multiple attachment options for us to use. We can use the TRSS 3.5mm jack to connect, or connect it to an adapter and connect either using USB Type-C or Type-A. And if my guess is correct, using the adapter enables HyperX’s own noise cancellation tech to work for the new removable microphone. Initial impression while using the demo unit: audio sounds much fuller, bass has gone deeper and fitment is much more comfortable. Can’t test the microphone that time.
HyperX Cirro Buds Pro True Wireless Earbuds
“The Cirro Buds Pro earbuds offer precision noise cancelling with hybrid active noise cancellation technology to ensure clear sound. The Cirro Buds Pro earbuds also provide an ambient sound mode for users to stay connected to their surroundings, as well as low-latency audio connectivity for mobile gaming. With Bluetooth® 5.2 connectivity, these earbuds provide wireless freedom while offering HyperX durability with an IPX4 water-resistant rating, and the protective charging case can fully charge the earbuds in just 40 minutes. The earbuds feature three sets of ear tips for a personalized and secure fit and up to 35 hours of battery life. The Cirro Buds Pro are available in black, blue and tan colorways.”
Unlike the Cloud III, there are no demo units available to test.
That’s it for the HyperX Booth tour for COMPUTEX 2023. Looking to see if I can review the HyperX Cloud III. HyperX Cloud III is now available too.
