We met with Kingston over the weekend at PAX East to try out their new HyperX Cloud Headset. Unfortunately, due to the loud nature of the PAX show floor, I couldn’t run it through it’s paces, but here’s what I thought after my short time with them.
The things are damn comfortable. They’ve loaded these things with enough ear padding to put a baby to sleep, it’s definitely worthy of the “cloud” name. My usual issue with comfort didn’t seem apparent in the short time I spent with these on. Being someone who wears glasses, it’s usually hard for me to wear headsets for more than ten minutes without starting to feel some discomfort.
In addition to the comfort, they’ve focused on build quality. You’ll find a solid aluminum build on these guys that makes it seems like they’d be able to easily handle even the roughest of users. They felt very solid both in my hand, and while on my head.
As far as sound goes, it was hard to tell. Speakers from the booths on the floor were blasting all around me, so I feel like it’s unfair to comment on sound quality. I’m sure they’ve got some great “boom” as they’re packing 53mm drivers, but I won’t comment until I get some quality one on one time with them.
Marvel and Disney tease something that will make some fans of either company’s characters excited for this year’s iteration to the Disney Infinity franchise. With E3 around the corner, the possibilities to what this video implies are infinite.
After a (very expensive) easter egg made itself apparent in the first game, Disney’s acquisitions of both Lucasfilm and Marvel is at least not being completely squandered.
Early next year, The Idolm@ster: Cinderella Girls is getting a TV anime adaptation by A-1 Pictures, the same studio that animated 2011’s Idolm@ster series. Over the next few months, new PVs for each of the three idol types will be previewed.
The social game is promoting this announcement with 10 free Gacha rolls to all producers.
