"HyperX is always looking for new ways to deliver an amazing user experience. We are proud to present a streaming bundle worthy of the next viral tweet or post from streamers looking for a convenient way to start creating content," said Nate Almond, PC audio business manager, HyperX. "Becoming a streamer has never been easier, and the HyperX SoloCast microphone and Cloud Core gaming headset are a great combination to set up any streamer for success."

The HyperX Streamer Starter Pack includes the SoloCast USB microphone with an easy Plug N Play setup. The microphone utilizes a cardioid polar pattern that is more sensitive to sound sources directly in front of the microphone, making it ideal for in-game voice chat, streaming voice audio and audio recordings for content creation. The microphone offers a tap-to-mute feature that indicates mute status when the red LED is flashing, and a stand that swivels to fit a variety of setups for ease of use.

The Streamer Starter Pack also includes the Cloud Core gaming headset, which features a DTS Headphone:X1 Spatial Audio two-year activation code to provide clear positional audio for a more immersive gaming experience. It also features soft leatherette and plush memory foam for signature HyperX comfort and utilizes aluminum frame construction for long-lasting durability and stability.

HyperX’s Cloud Alpha blackout edition is now also available exclusively at Best Buy. Designed to deliver the ultimate comfort for hours of extended gameplay, Cloud Alpha leverages premium HyperX signature memory foam, an expanded headband with softer, more pliable leatherette and a durable, lightweight aluminum frame design. The headset features a detachable cable with in-line audio control allowing console gamers to adjust volume and mute microphone right on the cable.

The Cloud Core and Cloud Alpha blackout edition headsets offer multi-platform compatibility with PC, PS5™, PS4™, Xbox Series X|S2, Xbox One™2, Xbox One S™2, mobile3, Nintendo Switch™, and other virtual reality systems with 3.5mm ports4.
