Fountain Valley, CA – HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, announced today 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 more than 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 more than 10 products, with more anticipated later this year. The HyperX Cloud family of headsets has won many accolades and awards and was twice voted Best Gaming Headset by PC Gamer magazine. It is the preferred gaming headset for many championship eSports teams around the world.
“Since the launch of our first gaming headset in 2014, we’ve continually evolved our design and approach to become an industry standard for quality and sound that gamers now expect,” said Lawrence Yang, business manager, HyperX. “As competitive and casual gaming continues to gain popularity across PCs, console and even mobile platforms, we thrive in the challenge to further advance our headsets to new levels of user comfort and sound engagement.

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.
