HyperX has a broad range of gaming peripherals that suit anyone’s needs and budget, and they are on top of their game when keeping their products up-to-date. Recently, HyperX has added to their gaming headsets, the Cloud Orbit and the Cloud Orbit S., and they’ve ditched the wires. Both of these gaming headsets feature 100mm Audeze planar magnetic drivers that offer Waves Nx 3D audio. The Cloud Orbit S includes head tracking technology to simulate a 3D audio experience by tracking head movements. Both headsets have integrated audio controls and can easily toggle the HyperX custom-tuned 7.1 surround sound.
The HyperX Cloud Orbit S, with its head tracking technology, can be used to map head gestures to equivalent keypresses on the keyboard. Imagine, switching weapons in Fortnite with a twitch of your head, or firing off a healing spell in World of Warcraft with a nod. That could potentially free up other keys for other tasks. Though there could be a downside too, hopefully, if you sneeze, your character won’t do something you don’t want it to do.
The HyperX Cloud Orbit and Cloud Orbit S both feature the detachable noise-cancelling, build-in pop-filter, microphone with a flexible boom. They are also compatible with your favourite gaming console of choice too!
