Not one, not two, but three of HyperX's PC peripherals were recently announced to have won 2018 Red Dot Awards for product design. For around fifteen years, the company has been developing and refining products for PC users, but in the past couple of years it's really distinguished itself.
First up on the winner's list is the HyperX Alloy Elite RGB gaming keyboard. Using its NGenuity software, the user can customize and save up to three lighting profiles to the keyboard's on-board memory, but of course it has far more color options than just those three. Its unique quick access buttons (such as lighting customization and audio) and sturdy build made it quite a contender for the start, and it's no surprise that it took the Dot.
Then we've got the HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB gaming mouse, which I talked about a little while ago—and frankly, I'm not surprised it won the Red Dot Award. It has a similar lighting system to the keyboard, with its three on-board save slots, not to mention that it was designed with pure comfort in mind, and is apparently a pleasure to use. Not too bad to look at, either. There are a couple other specs on the last post that any interested buyers might want to check out. (Let's just leave it at 16,000 DPI to set the tone.)
And of course, the picture wouldn't be complete without audio—everything but the kitchen sink, you might say. Launched earlier this year, the HyperX Cloud Flight wireless gaming headset won the Red Dot Award in part for its comfort—rotating memory foam ear cups—and in part for its battery power—up to 30 hours, which is at the top of its class.
HyperX seems to be the model of consistency as of late, with quality design in both performance and comfort. I thought my new keyboard may have cemented me with Razer, but it looks like I may be taking some trips over to the HyperX camp in the near future—and honestly, I'm pretty excited about it.
