HyperX, the sports and gaming equipment brand at HP, announced that it has sold over 20 million gaming headsets.
That’s a pretty good result when HyperX launched its first HyperX Cloud gaming headset in April 2014. HyperX is an 18-year-old brand that HP bought for $ 425 million in March in an agreement with Kingston Technologies.
HyperX has developed a range of headsets that focus on high quality sound and performance for gaming, listening to music, watching videos and chatting. These headsets are designed to work with PCs, consoles and mobile devices.
“Since the launch of the first HyperX gaming headset in 2014, we have steadily developed our design and product range to become an industry leader in quality, comfort and sound,” said Kevin Hague, General Manager of HyperX, in a statement . As competitive and casual gaming continues to gain popularity across PCs, consoles and mobile platforms, we strive to take our headsets to new levels and look forward to delivering the next 20 million high quality headphones to discerning customers worldwide . “
