When I think of Kingston, I immediately think of their flash memory based products like SSDs, system memory, USB drives, and memory cards. High end headphones don't even cross my mind as a product they would offer. But, as part of their HyperX line of enthusiast grade hardware they are now have two generations of their Cloud gaming headsets.
