HyperX Wins ‘iF Design Award’ For New Gaming Keyboard & Headset
HyperX has won a 2018 iF Design Award for its new Alloy Elite RGB Gaming Keyboard, just days after the product’s Australian launch.
The company also picked up a 2018 iF Design award for its ‘Cloud Flight’ wireless gaming headset, released late last year.
The gaming brand has built upon its former success, having nabbed a 2017 iF Design Award for its Cloud Stinger headset.
Featuring up to 30 hours of battery life and an ultra-comfortable design, the Cloud Flight gaming headset has been well received by tech reviewers globally.
Following its unveiling at CES 2018, Hyper X’s Alloy Elite RGB Gaming Keyboard landed in Australia on March 9th.
The device is available to purchase from JB Hi-Fi for A$259.
The keyboard claims to deliver “pro level performance” with enhanced personalisation.
Considered HyperX’s first full-featured RGB mechanical gaming keyboard, the Alloy Elite offers “complete colour customisation” courtesy of NGenuity software.
For easy accessibility, three custom lighting profiles can be saved onto the keyboard’s on-board memory.
The product features a robust steel frame, dedicated media buttons and pass-through USB 2.0 port. The keyboard is complimented by a detachable wrist rest and “textured titanium-coloured keycaps”.
