HyperX and Smith-Schuster Collab on Custom Headsets to be Auctioned on eBay for JuJu Foundation

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Feb. 18, 2020 – Today, HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., and eBay, one of the world’s most popular destinations for everything gaming, are together auctioning 19 limited edition JuJu Smith-Schuster Cloud MIX gaming headsets with proceeds going to charity. HyperX collaborated with Smith-Schuster to create a special headset design featuring a classic black and vibrant yellow color scheme emblazoned with Smith-Schuster’s signature on the buckles. In honor of the NFL star’s #19 jersey, 19 limited edition headsets are available for auction on eBay with proceeds benefitting the JuJu Foundation. The sleeve of each headset box is personally signed by Smith-Schuster.

NFL football star and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Smith-Schuster has been an influential member of HyperX Heroes ambassador program since 2018, including participating in the We’re All Gamers branding campaign that was seen during the NBA 2018-19 season. As both a gaming and lifestyle representative of HyperX, Smith-Schuster brings his passion both on and off the field with flair.

“I’m so excited to be working with my partners at HyperX on a custom headset,” said JuJu Smith-Schuster. “It’s always been a dream of mine to have my own custom headset that reflects everything I’m passionate about. From the colorway to the packaging to the name on the buckle, this headset is truly inspired by me and the things I love doing.”

“HyperX is excited to offer up these 19 extremely limited-edition JuJu Gaming Headsets to help support the JuJu Foundation,” said Daniel Kelley, director of marketing, HyperX. “JuJu embodies our HyperX Heroes philosophy of celebrating the good in gaming, giving back to the community and we’re very pleased to provide all of the proceeds to this great cause.”

HyperX Cloud MIX is a versatile wired gaming headset that converts to a lightweight, portable Bluetooth headset for music listening anytime and anywhere. When wired it is capable of pumping out Hi-Res Audio,1 and in Bluetooth mode it offers up to 20 hours2 of wire-free listening pleasure. Known for its comfort and sound quality, Cloud MIX utilizes HyperX custom-designed dual-chamber technology and 40mm drivers for separation of bass from mid and high frequencies for distinct and clear audio.
