HyperX is doing their first Bluetooth headset with the Cloud MIX aimed at delivering high end audio to gamers. Working both as a wired and a wireless headset, the Cloud MIX comes in as being a Hi-Res Audio certified product for gaming and multimedia.
40mm drivers deliver sound ranging from 10Hz to 40,000Hz, you can easily go from being plugged in and gaming to listening to music on your mobile device wirelessly, which HyperX says can last up to 20 hours before a recharge is necessary.
Something unique is that the Cloud MIX features two microphones. The first is a detachable boom mic that will deliver clear voice over chat. The other mic is a discrete mic built into one of the ear cups so you can chat on the phone without having to have the long mic attached.
There are a few buttons as well so you can control the headset's volume and power as well as inline controls on one of the wires available.
You can pick up a HyperX Cloud MIX at Best Buy for $199.99.
