It reminds us of the importance of getting involved with, and giving back to, our communities. Gaming, and the amazing community surrounding it, has been a huge positive force and massive source of happiness for many. This holiday season, we’ve chosen to support a number of gaming-related charities that bring joy into people’s lives and help to make this season even more magical for them.”

We’ll be using the headphones over the next few months to raise vital funds for our work levelling the playing field for disabled gamers of all ages, but in the first instance they’ll be an amazing surprise Christmas present for many of the people we help.”
