HyperX Naruto collab

The HyperX Naruto collab is here. HyperX has released their latest product collab with a brand new set of Naruto-themed products. The set includes a keyboard, mouse, mouse mat and a HyperX headset. So how do they actually perform?

The new Naruto x HyperX collab features the HyperX Alloy Origins keyboard ($119.99). Each product has two options you can choose from: Naruto and Itachi. The main difference just being the main colors (Orange – Naruto | Red – Itachi).

The Alloy Origins keyboard features an aircraft-grade aluminum body, HyperX mechanical switches and adjustable keyboard feet.

Overall, the keyboard feels solid and it’s got some heft to it due to the aluminum body. It feels great to type on and gaming is a breeze. The switches are the linear HyperX Red switches, so if you’re more into the tactile and “clicky” keyboard feel, then this probably won’t be the board for you. However, I tend to not really care either way — if a keyboard feels good to me then it feels good, “clicky” or not.

I love that the keyboard has a full number pad, however, the other big thing I look for in keyboards is a spot for dedicated media controls. Unfortunately, the Alloy Origins does not have dedicated media keys or a volume rocker, which isn’t a dealbreaker, but it still would have been nice to have.

The board also connects via a detachable USB-C cable — a surprising, yet welcome addition. The keyboard comes with a braided cable in the box as well, which is just really convenient.

The HyperX Naruto collab also features a Naruto/Itachi-themed Pulsefire Haste mouse. In the past, I haven’t exactly been the biggest fan of this mouse, most likely because of the size. However, this time it surprised me and I’m not really sure why.

I don’t believe there’s anything different about this version of the Pulsefire Haste in particular, but it feels a lot better in my hand than in previous reviews. I like the inclusion of the grip tape that HyperX provides, especially because my hands tend to get very sweaty when I use my mouse, so the grip tape is much appreciated.

The mouse is very lightweight weighing only 0.13 lbs.

For $60, this is a really budget-friendly mouse option — especially if you’re a Naruto fan!

For the past year or so, I’ve been using a HyperX mouse pad that I bought for maybe $15 a while back. It’s done me good, but I might as well throw it in the trash now that I have the Itachi-themed Pulsefire Mat.

This mouse mat blows any other mouse pad that I’ve ever owned out of the water and it’s not even close — this thing is stupid cool.

The design is basically straight out of an anime title sequence and it feels incredible to use. I didn’t realize how truly massive the thing was until I took it out of the box either, but this mouse mat is huge, which is great because I tend to put both my keyboard and mouse on my mouse mats.

The HyperX Naruto Pulsefire Mat will run you about $40. Unfortunately, at the time of writing it’s completely out of stock. Maybe HyperX will restock it at some point, but this collab has been marketed as limited edition, so it’s doubtful.

The final piece of the HyperX Naruto collab is the Cloud Alpha headset. Like the Pulsefire Haste, I haven’t been entirely impressed with previous HyperX headsets, primarily the budget versions. However, with the Cloud Alpha, it’s a clear case of “you get what you pay for.”

I have a massive head, so it’s easy for earcups to become incredibly uncomfortable after even just a few minutes of use, due to the weight of the drivers dragging the headset down. But with the Cloud Alpha, I have yet to experience that.

The headset rests comfortably on the head, sounds fantastic and it looks great. It’s got in-line volume and microphone controls in case you’re using the included microphone (I have a separate XLR microphone, so I am not), and the included cable is so long that it makes up for the headset not having any wireless capabilities.

Overall, for $109.99 this headset is a fantastic choice if you’re willing to open your budget up just a little bit more.

HyperX Naruto collab

Ever since I unboxed the products from the HyperX Naruto collab, I was absolutely floored with the quality of everything included. If you’ve got the chance (which might not be much longer!), I can highly recommend picking any of these products up.
