FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/3Daudio?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#3Daudiolt;/agt;–HyperX,
the gaming division of Kingston
Technology Company, Inc., today revealed Cloud Orbit and Cloud Orbit
S gaming headsets in cooperation with AudezeTM and Waves®
Technology. The headsets are the first HyperX gaming headsets powered by
Audeze’s patented 100mm Planar Magnetic Drivers for accurate sound.
Waves Nx® 3D audio technology brings an immersive cinematic
audio experience to gaming. The Cloud Orbit S includes Waves Nx®
head tracking technology to deliver a stable hyper-realistic 360-degree
audio environment where the user’s head movements bring the room to life
1,000 times a second. HyperX gaming headsets paired with Audeze and
Waves technology bring audio quality to the next level with audio
technology previously found only in audiophile headsets.
“HyperX is pleased to expand our gaming headset lineup by partnering
with Audeze to develop our first wired headset using Planar Magnetic
technology,” said Mark Leathem, general manager, HyperX. “Working with
Audeze and Wave NX technology, we continue to provide new and innovative
audio products for the gamer community to use and enjoy.”
Cloud Orbit headsets are based on the ground-breaking Audeze Mobius
Platform that features 100mm planar magnetic driver technology for clear
and realistic spatial audio. Audeze planar magnetic designs utilize
extremely thin-film speakers and powerful custom magnets, allowing you
to accurately hear where your opponent is located. Feel completely
immersed in the field of play with high resolution audio clarity and
wide sound stage.
“There is really no medium that can benefit more from our product than
gaming, so we’re partnering with HyperX to bring our award-winning sound
to the wider audience of gamers. We want to change the way people
experience games and give them an edge in head-to-head play,” said
Sankar Thiagasamudram, founder and CEO of Audeze.
Waves Nx Technology precisely tracks your slightest head
movements and intelligently creates an acoustic environment that you can
move through, with pinpoint accuracy and perception. Users feel they are
immersed into virtual reality audio environments of games, movies, and
music. Similar to how you slightly shift your head to recognize where
sounds come from, in games you make the same tiny movements to locate
positions of opponents, threats, or teammates on small or large screens.
The Cloud Orbit and Orbit S features include advanced audio
customization and personalized 3D audio settings including 3D audio
calibration to individual user measurements, customizable room ambience1
and pre-set EQ profiles. A detachable noise cancellation mic with pop
filter is included for chat and voice applications and can easily be
unplugged for music-only purposes. Three detachable cable options are
included to use with PC, Console, and Mobile devices.
