HyperX announced that they’ve officially shipped over 20 million headsets. This is a massive achievement for any company and one HyperX is understandably proud of.
In addition to the announcement, HyperX General Manager, Kevin Hague, had the following to say:
Since the launch of the first HyperX gaming headset in 2014, we’ve steadily evolved our designs and selection of products to become an industry leader for quality, comfort, and sound.
As competitive and casual gaming continues to gain popularity across PCs, consoles, and mobile platforms, we strive to further advance our headsets to new levels and look forward to delivering the next 20 million high quality headphones to discerning customers worldwide.HyperX Press Release

The success is also well founded. Their Cloud Orbit S, essentially the HyperX version of Audeze impressive Mobius, highlighted the power of WavesNx/3D head tracking sound and their iconic Cloud II has been a staple recommendation by gamers for years. It will be exciting to see what future things come, especially with HP now backing them.
