HyperX Unveils Cloud 3 Gaming Headset

HyperX has revealed the next entry in the Cloud gaming headset range, the Cloud III. 

The new headset is a follow-up to the much-loved Cloud II, and features a tweaked design with a host of internal improvements. 

Getting into the specifics, the new headset comes with re-engineered 53mm angled drivers and comes with a lifetime activation of DTS Headphone:X, the latter of which provides accurate 3D audio spatialization.

In terms of pricing, the HyperX Cloud III will cost $99.99/£109.99 and is available to order now in both black and red. 

Alongside the modified 53mm angled drivers and DTS Headphone: X compatibility, the Cloud III comes equipped with HyperX’s signature memory foam ear cushions (that I loved in the Cloud Alpha Wireless), a 10mm mic with noise-cancellation, and onboard audio and mic controls. 

For compatibility, the Cloud III will work on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
