CES 2023: HyperX brings custom keycaps and a new mouse

Since the split from Kingston, HyperX is now part of the HP family, and this was our first CES encounter with them under their new banner. While we didn’t bring much new gear to the show, we did want to highlight two of their upcoming offerings: 3D Personalization and the Pulsefire Haste 2.

3D Personalization

If you’ve paid any attention to the world of PC peripherals, you know how popular custom keyboards are. With the ability to tune your keyboard to your liking, it’s no surprise that HyperX has brought their own version of customization to the table.

With their fully colored 3D printed keycaps and peripheral accessories, you can add a little HyperX flare to your keyboard and desk setup. Part of the Cozy Cat collection, Coco the cat will launch on January 26, 2023 and is available in limited edition for just $19.99 on the HyperX website. This and other HyperX custom keycaps support the HyperX stem design, and HyperX even showed off custom headset and mic stands/holders for their headsets and mics.

Pulsefire Haste 2

Following in the footsteps of the Pulsefire Haste, the Haste 2 changes things up a bit while still offering a lightweight design. Gone is the open honeycomb design of the mouse’s top shell, eliminating the chance of dust and other debris getting into the mouse’s body. Equipped with HyperX switches and a custom 26k DPI sensor, the Haste 2 is built for speed and durability. The wired Haste 2 also features 8K polling. Both mice are very lightweight; the wireless version is 61g, while the wired version is 53g.

Available in black and white color schemes, as well as wired and wireless versions, the Pulsefire Haste 2 is a mouse we can’t wait to get our hands on to get through the steps, as the Haste was an instant favorite of ours.

Both versions of the Pulsefire Haste 2 will be available in April, with the wired Pulsefire Haste 2 priced at $59 and the wireless version priced at $79
