Outside of the absurd battery life, the headset also features DTS Headphone:X, which DTS describes as “an incredible technology that simulates the 3D environment of the audio’s original mixing stage.” That means you’ll get a more accurate simulated surround sound experience from this headset, which is exactly what you want to get immersed in a game.

The company promises that the sound will remain as good as the wired version. In a press release, HyperX said, “HyperX 50mm Drivers that feature a slimmer, lighter design while maintaining the sound and performance of the original wired version.”

For communication, there’s a removable noise-canceling microphone. If you aren’t playing a multiplayer game, the ability to remove the mic and take in the sound is a nice feature to have.

Comfort is another crucial aspect of a gaming headset, and HyperX promises soft, pliable leatherette materials and custom plush memory foam for your head and ears.

HyperX included an aluminum frame, which should make the headphones durable enough to survive the trials and tribulations hardcore gamers will put them through.
