HyperX, Kingstonâ€™s gaming hardware division, has been finding success with its selection of Cloud wireless headsets. Itâ€™s also been dipping a toe into the niche of compact gaming keyboards, with multiple variants of the Ducky One Mini Two. At CES, itâ€™s rolling out its first fully home-grown design, plus expanding availability for other gaming hardware.
The HyperX Alloy Origins 60 is the companyâ€™s first self-branded mini mechanical keyboard, since the previous Ducky versions only used its gaming switches. That said, thereâ€™s not too much different here: you still get a semi-standardized 60% layout, HyperXâ€™s Red linear mechanical switches, and RGB lighting. It includes a custom bit of RGB flair on the space bar.
The keyboard also boasts premium PBT keycaps and programming via the HyperX NGENUITY desktop app, which wasnâ€™t available on the Ducky models. Itâ€™ll cost $100 when it launches on February 22nd.Â HyperX is also announcing worldwide availability for the following three products, previously only available in the US:
Pulsefire Haste mouse: an entry in the popular â€œultralightâ€� mouse category with a honeycomb shell design and a braided USB cable. On top of the standard shooter configuration (two thumb buttons, one DPI switch above the wheel), it offers user-applied grips and PTFE skates for smooth movement. Itâ€™s now available globally for $50.
XCloud II Wireless headset: a premium wireless gaming headset with an aluminum frame for light weight and comfort. Paired with the included receiver, you get virtual surround sound from oversized 53mm drivers and a detachable mic boom. Itâ€™s available now for $150, also compatible with the PS4 and Switch.
Cloud Revolver +7.1 headset: a USB wired headset with 50mm drivers, virtual surround sound, a removable boom, and in-line controls for volume, mic volume, and noise cancellation. Itâ€™s out now for $150, also compatible with the PS4.
