HyperX Cloud MIX Headset Review

We’ve been fans of HyperX’s Cloud gaming headsets since they were first released a few years back. Since the first headset HyperX has just got it right in terms of sound quality, comfort, and style. HyperX’s latest release, the Cloud MIX, attempts to go into a realm HyperX has not been before, wireless. The Cloud MIX as the name suggests is not just for PC use though, it is designed as a gaming headset that you can use on your PC, console, mobile device, etc. It features not only Bluetooth wireless connectivity, but a wired connection too, so HyperX is hoping this is the all-around headset for anyone. Will this headset replace the Cloud Alpha, which I use daily? Or my wireless travel headphones, the BOHM B66’s? Read on as we find out!

HyperX Predator RGB DDR4-2933 16GB Memory Kit Review

It seems like every memory company is now offering RGB modules and HyperX is now one of them releasing their first ever RGB kit in their Predator DDR4 RGB. This kit comes with an updated heatspreader design, of course RGB lighting, and one very special feature that you won't find on other RGB kits. That special feature comes in the form of IR channels built into each module. These ensure that the RGB lighting effects don't get out of sync, by allowing the modules to "talk to each other". We were actually shown how this works at CES earlier this year. Today we are checking out the HX429C15PB3AK2/16 kit, which is a 16GB (2x 8GB) kit running at 2933 MHz with timings of 15-17-17-39 at 1.35V. Let's see how this kit stacks up against other RGB kits we've reviewed recently.

HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset Review

Back in 2014 HyperX released their original Cloud Headset. It was a headset that offered incredible performance at a great price, at the time it was the undisputed best gaming headset under $100. Then in 2015 the HyperX Cloud II came out, again we were blown away. I have been using that headset as my main headset since reviewing it. So when HyperX told us they have a successor to the Cloud II I knew it had big shoes to fill. On top of great sound performance the Cloud headsets were some of the most comfortable out there. So today we are checking out the new Cloud Alpha, which has a similar design to the Cloud II, but brings with it a new dual chamber driver design. The dual chambers separate the bass from the mids and highs, allowing optimal tuning for cleaner, smoother sound. Let's take a look a see if this headset will become our new gaming headset!
