HyperX renews headset partnership with NBA 2K League

US gaming accessories brand HyperX has renewed its partnership with the NBA 2K League.

Under the deal, HyperX will continue as the Official Headset Partner of the NBA 2K League for a second season.

The league will use HyperX headsets throughout the competition, including the regular season in New York – which is played in-studio rather than before a live audience – the playoffs and the NBA 2K League Finals.

Mark Leathem, general manager at HyperX, said: “Esports and sports are now synonymous, and the NBA 2K League is helping lead this new world of converging entertainment. Hearing every detail and communicating effectively during competitions is critically important to players and we are happy to provide the best gear to the players.”
