HyperX Cloud Earbuds with Microphone coming for Nintendo Switch and mobile gamers

HyperX, the maker of gaming accessories, has announced the HyperX Cloud Earbuds for Nintendo Switch and mobile gamers.

Now when you think of gaming headphones, earbuds are the furthest thing from your mind. Big, bulky and definitely not something you want to use on the go.

This is what makes the HyperX Cloud Earbuds compelling addition to your gaming arsenal.

HyperX Cloud Earbuds

HyperX headsets are well known for their comfort and the HyperX Cloud Earbuds strive for the same excellence. Made of soft silicone ear tips, these buds aim to be comfortable and great sound sealing for immersive listening on the go.

Powerful 14mm neodymium magnets produce rich sound with enhanced bass for gaming, music and video.

The earbuds include a rubberised, tangle-free cable connection that features a 90-degree angled plug optimised for the handheld mode.

The Cloud Earbuds support direct voice-chat connectivity for the Nintendo Switch with a slim, in-line mic. Of course, you can use this mic for mobile calls as well.

With the introduction of Fortnite Android Beta in September, the demand for high-quality earbuds with in-line microphone continues to grow,” said Andrew Ewing, senior business manager, HyperX.

The HyperX Cloud Earbuds are available from all HyperX channels for $79AUD MSRP. The headphones are backed by HyperX two-year warranty.
