HyperX’s latest wireless gaming headset has 300 hours of battery life

Gaming accessory manufacturer HyperX showed off its latest suite of products at CES 2022, which includes new mice, keyboards, and controllers. The star of the show is the Cloud Alpha Wireless headset, which features 300 hours of battery life.

HyperX says that the Cloud Alpha is the first wireless gaming headset to offer a single charge up to 300 hours. The newly redesigned headset also features 50mm drivers that are lighter than the wired Cloud Alpha headset. Like other HyperX headsets, it’ll include memory foam ear cups, a detachable microphone, and onboard audio controls.

The Cloud Alpha Wireless is set to start retailing in February with a $200 price point.

The company is launching two more gaming headsets as well at a lower price point. The $70 Cloud Core gaming headset is expected to launch in January and features a Discord-certified microphone. The Cloud II headset should arrive in March at a $100 price point. It’ll allow players to toggle 7.1 virtual surround sound on with the press of a button.

HyperX is launching a new controller aimed at mobile gaming as well. The Clutch Wireless controller features a standard ABXY button layout and will be compatible with Android devices at launch. The package includes a USB-C to USB-A cable and a detachable phone clip that expands from 41 to 86mm. The controller can hold 19 hours on a single charge. It will be released this March at a $50 retail price.

Round out the new offerings, HyperX’s a new wireless gaming mouse called the Pulsefire Haste. The $80 gaming mouse features six programmable buttons, a 100-hour wireless charge, and TTC Golden micro switches. The company will also launch a new mechanical keyboard, the $100 Alloy Origins 65, which has a 65% form factor. Both products are expected to launch this February.

We now know the eye-watering price of Nvidia’s RTX 4090 gaming laptops

Nvidia's upcoming mobile GPU range is on the way, and soon, laptops equipped with an RTX 4090 will be out in the wild. Unfortunately, they won't be cheap.

We've just spotted one such laptop, and the price is downright terrifying. If not for the portability factor of laptops, you might be better off just buying a desktop graphics card instead.

Digital Trends’ Top Tech of CES 2023 Awards
Best of CES 2023 Awards Our Top Tech from the Show Feature

Let there be no doubt: CES isn’t just alive in 2023; it’s thriving. Take one glance at the taxi gridlock outside the Las Vegas Convention Center and it’s evident that two quiet COVID years didn’t kill the world’s desire for an overcrowded in-person tech extravaganza -- they just built up a ravenous demand.

From VR to AI, eVTOLs and QD-OLED, the acronyms were flying and fresh technologies populated every corner of the show floor, and even the parking lot. So naturally, we poked, prodded, and tried on everything we could. They weren’t all revolutionary. But they didn’t have to be. We’ve watched enough waves of “game-changing” technologies that never quite arrive to know that sometimes it’s the little tweaks that really count.

CES 2023: Razer Edge 5G is an impressive (and misguided) gaming handheld
Razer's Edge 5G gaming device sitting on a table.

Razer is tapping into the cloud/mobile/handheld gaming craze with the Edge 5G. It's a unique device, packed with a powerful Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 mobile chipset for native Android gaming, as well as 5G and Wi-Fi 6E support for on-the-go cloud gaming. I had a chance to try it out at CES 2023, and it's the best iteration of this type of device we've seen. But it still loses on principle.

If you're unfamiliar with the Razer Edge, it's basically a phone that you can't call or text with combined with Razer's Kishi V2 Pro controller. The controller isn't the same as the $100 Kishi V2 you can buy now -- it's almost identical, but Razer added haptics for the Edge. You can't buy this updated version, but when I asked Razer if it planned to bring the Pro to market, the company left the door open.
