Kingston Hyper X Awarded Discord Certification

Fountain Valley, CA – March 21, 2016 – HyperX™, a division of Kingston® 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. With more than 5 million users and over 1 million new people trying it out each month, the company 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 gameplay among the top five games and constructive audio feedback from the user community.



        “We are excited to work with the best hardware vendors in gaming to certify that their headsets play nicely with Discord,” explained Eros Resmini, CMO, Discord. “HyperX Cloud Revolver and Cloud II went through the gauntlet and passed with sonic bliss”



        “It is an honor to be the first gaming headset manufacturer to achieve Discord certification,” said Annie L. Gerard, global strategic marketing manager, HyperX. “Discord is quickly becoming a major player in the voice and chat gaming market. To get their certification is further validation of our headsets and our commitment to gamers to provide the best quality sound experience.”
