Audio in games not only adds to a gamer’s immersion, it also gives an edge in competitive gaming. Be it hearing the footsteps of an opposing terrorist in Counter-Strike, or a “NERF THIS!” from an enemy D.Va in Overwatch, high-quality audio in headsets is invaluable for gamers today.
Aside from in-game benefits, a gaming headset is a must in team games as it enables players to communicate effectively with each other. Because of this, gaming headsets are often found alongside gaming mice and mechanical keyboards in a gamer’s arsenal. HyperX proves this as their gaming headsets are the weapon of choice as they have now surpassed the one million sales mark.
HyperX®, a division of Kingston® Technology Company, Inc., today announced it has surpassed the 1-million sales mark for its award-winning line of Gaming Headsets. HyperX achieved the feat in just two years as the first HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset shipped in April 2014. HyperX Cloud Gaming Headsets are now available in over 10,000 stores and 80 countries across six continents.
In the two years since the original Cloud launched, HyperX has expanded its headset offerings to over 10 products, with more anticipated later this year. The HyperX Cloud range of headsets has won many accolades and awards including numerous ‘editor’s choice’ and ‘best gaming headset’ awards. It is the preferred gaming headset for many championship eSports teams around the world.
In June, the company began shipping HyperX CloudX™, the company’s first official licensed headset for Xbox® One. It was quickly followed up with an announcement for HyperX CloudX Revolver Gears of War, shipping this September, in conjunction with the highly anticipated Gears of War 4 debuting this fall.
