HyperX is is adding two new headsets for May 2023 in the form of Cloud III, a wired gaming headset for PCs and consoles and the Cirro Buds Pro, true wireless earbuds that connect via Bluetooth (for gaming on smartphones.)

The Cloud III has gone through a re-design, both inside and out. The new curvy design is much more sexy around the earcups (less clinical than the Cloud II) and the headband also looks well built without any visible stitching. Comfort is improved all around for longer gaming sessions with more foam under the headband and earcups.
