FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.--()--HyperX®, a division of Kingston® Technology Company, Inc., and sponsor of top gaming organizations worldwide, today announced a global sponsorship with eSports professional and Street Fighter legend Daigo "The Beast" Umehara. Daigo will wear HyperX gaming headsets exclusively to ensure the comfort and superior audio quality required to take on the fiercest international competition. Daigo will use HyperX Cloud Stinger – the best gaming headset under $50 – as well as HyperX Cloud, Cloud 2, and Cloud Revolver to ensure he’s operating at peak level during his rigorous tournament schedule.

“Whether training for my next event or on-stage at a major tournament, I need the best quality sound so I can perform at the highest level,” said Daigo Umehara. “HyperX gaming headsets are the most comfortable I've ever worn, while also providing world-class audio at a reasonable price. I'm excited to be a part of HyperX and look forward to working closely with them.”

Daigo is widely considered to be the most successful player in the history of the Street Fighter franchise, with dozens of major wins globally including six Evolution titles. He currently holds the world record as “the most successful player in major tournaments of Street Fighter.” Daigo is competing this week at the CAPCOM Cup 2016 Street Fighter V World Championship in Anaheim, California.

Daigo will be wearing HyperX gaming headsets exclusively, which will provide him with both the comfort and audio quality he will need to take on the fiercest competition in the international tournament circuit. He will have access to the complete line up of HyperX headsets as he battles challengers around the world.

HyperX is an avid supporter of eSports and the gaming community, developing products designed specifically for FPS genres – including the HyperX Cloud Revolver headset, which delivers a studio-grade sound stage that enables gamers to directionally target the enemy, enhanced comfort and superior quality.
