HyperX Gaming Headsets First to Achieve Discord Certification

HyperX, a division of Kingstonآ® Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced its award-winning Cloud II and forthcoming Cloud Revolver headsets are the first audio devices to gain Discord certification. Discord, the fastest rising voice and text chat app for gamers, offers free, secure and low-latency service for multi-player desktop and mobile gaming. They have 5 million users with over 1 million new people trying it out each month and recently raised $20 million (USD) in venture capital through an investment led by Greylock Partners.

Discord works with top audio manufacturers to ensure that gamers have an excellent experience when communicating among friends, teammates and fellow players. HyperX Cloud II and Cloud Revolver headsets are certified by Discord to have clear and crisp voice quality along with excellent sound. No audible echoes, background noises or vocal distortion were detected. To achieve certification, the microphone on the Cloud Revolver and Cloud II headsets were subjected to various tests including an acoustical comparison vs. a reference sound signature from Discord, rigorous game play among the top five games and constructive audio feedback from the user community.
