HyperX is celebrating its 20th birthday through October. The gaming peripheral brand has come a long way since it started as an enthusiast brand of Kingston Technology. It mainly sold high-end RAM, but over the years, its offerings have grown and evolved with gamers.
A big change came with the introduction of its headset, the HyperX Cloud, which still is one of my favorite gaming peripherals because of its comfort and solid sound. The brand has expanded its product line and it caters even more to the streaming crowd with microphones, computer mice and gaming keyboards. That's a part of the culture that didn't exist 20 years ago.
Now a part of HP, the HyperX brand has added monitors to its line-up with the Armada series of monitors. Although that's a new frontier, the company still focuses on its bread and butter, which is headsets, and the new Cloud Alpha Wireless has been one of its most impressive products with 300-hour battery life. I'm putting the headset through its paces now.
As part of the celebration, players can expect to see online and offline events, and discounts on some of its products.(c)2022 Silicon Valley, San Jose, Calif. Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC.
