I’ve been waiting for the HyperX Cloud Orbit to finally hit our shores since it was first announced at CES 2019, and it looks like the wait is finally over. The HyperX Cloud Orbit promises to be one of the best headsets available on the market, but the HyperX Cloud Orbit S is one of the most innovative headsets thanks to the use of Waves Nx head tracking technology.
“Our goal was to produce a headset that meets the standards of gamers and audiophiles alike,” said 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.”
Both the HyperX Cloud Orbit and Cloud Orbit S feature huge 100mm planar magnetic drivers that not only deliver clear and realistic audio, but also feature HyperX custom-tuned 7.1 surround sound and that can be enabled with a touch of a button. The Cloud Orbit brothers feature identical detachable noise cancelling mics with flexible boom along with 3 detachable cables, this means you can hook up your Cloud Orbits to any platform of your choice
The Cloud Orbit S is the perfect addition for all you VR owners, as it can track your head position and movements 1000 up to times. There’s no better way to experience an intense FPS than being immersed in the universe with pin-point sound localization and accuracy. There are a few more tricks up HyperX’s sleeve, the Cloud Orbit S also features gesture control that can map head gestures to equivalent keypresses on a keyboard
The HyperX Cloud Orbit and Cloud Orbit S are available now from the official retailers for AUD$429 and AUD$539, for more information head over the official HyperX store here.
