HyperX announces new Gears of War gaming headset

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, September 14, 2016 – Gears of War 4, one of the most anticipated games of the year, is about to come back with brand new saga. HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced its second official Xbox® licensed gaming headset, CloudX™ Revolver Gears of War.

Co-designed with Microsoft® and The Coalition®, the studio developing Gears of War 4, the headset features a gritty, battle-weathered design to complement the recentlyannounced Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Limited Edition 2TB Bundle and Xbox One Gears of War 4 Crimson Omen Limited Edition Wireless Controller*. With an RRP of $199, the CloudX Revolver Gears of War is available exclusively through JB Hi-Fi.

The headset has been tested and approved by Microsoft, with additional compatibility for Windows. It has a 3.5mm (4 Pole) plug** and 2M PC extension cable and features studio-grade sound stage that lets you hear your opponent more accurately from further away, making it ideal for FPS and open environment gameplay. In-line audio control makes it easy to adjust the volume and mute the microphone right from the cable.

For the ultimate in comfort, HyperX CloudX Revolver Gears of War features a genuine leather headband and high-quality, award-winning HyperX memory foam that lets you play for hours. Its solid steel frame is built for long-lasting durability, and the detachable noise-cancellation microphone results in clearer voice quality and reduced background noise for a better in-game chat experience. It’s certified by TeamSpeak™ and Discord, and compatible with SkypeTM, Ventrilo, Mumble and RaidCall.

 “HyperX is excited to be working with Microsoft to offer gamers a headset that enhances their Gears of War gaming experience,” said Ann Bai, Sales Director, APAC Region, HyperX. “Working with them and The Coalition, we are able to bring our signature HyperX comfort and sound quality along with bold Gears styling to Xbox One gamers and Gears fans alike.”
