Built as a new component in the premiere Kingston HyperX line, the new HyperX Cloud White Edition gaming headset features a stand-out white and black color scheme to compliment the award-winning comfort of its sister unit, the HyperX Cloud Black Edition.

Touting some of the most comfortable supra-aural ear cups in gaming headsets today, the HyperX Cloud White Edition will not only feel fantastic, but sound just as great. Built on a soft leather-padded headband under memory foam ear cushions, 53mm Hi-Fi drivers load out the HyperX White Edition. With a strong bass tone and a capable treble you can pick out the furthest shots in the distance or closest footsteps in your favorite first-person shooter. Packing in an adjustable and removable boom microphone featured prominently on the HyperX Cloud headset, it’s your choice to chat when you want to and drop the mic when you aren’t interested – but rest assured, you’ll come in with prominent clarity while live streaming with the HyperX Cloud series headset.

HyperX business manager Lawrence Yang notes that The new White Edition will provide the same great quality we know from Kingston headsets already on the market.

“We are proud to add the White Edition now to give gamers and HyperX fans another headset choice with the same great comfort and sound as the original.”

The HyperX Cloud White Edition headset will feature the same compatibility as its Black Edition predecessor, ready for use with PC and PlayStation 4 platforms as well as smartphones and tablets. Kingston provides a complete specs sheet for those hardcore audiophiles below.
