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.”
