Category Leader ThinkWrite Technologies To Provide All-New Victory 250XG Headsets to Event Winners and Select Middle and High School Esports Programs, Nationwide
ATLANTA, GA, October 18, 2022 – The North America Scholastic Esports Federation (NASEF) has selected category leader ThinkWrite Technologies™ as the Official Esports Headset Provider for its slate of offerings that blend play and learning for lifelong student impact.
ThinkWrite Technologies will provide its all-new 250XG Victory Gaming headsets to NASEF members for event and Beyond the Game™ prizing and other esports events, along with educational content and career insights from ThinkWrite audio technology experts.
NASEF has always focused on providing meaningful preparation for college and career opportunities through its engaging interest-driven learning. For NASEF members, “scholastic esports” doesn’t just mean esports in schools, it means connecting scholastic benefits with the esports environment. In Fall 2022, NASEF is offering its nationwide Fall Final tournament featuring the popular Valorant and Rocket League games, coordinating statewide events such as the official CIF Esports Initiative in California, and offering Beyond the Game challenges in video production and software development.
“We’re proud to partner with NASEF as its Official Esports Headset Provider as we share a common goal: helping students learn the necessary skills to both thrive and grow,” said Mike Guerena, founder and CEO of ThinkWrite Technologies. “As esports becomes increasingly more popular, we’re meeting students where they are and extending learning beyond the classroom, helping students to build valuable skills, promote teamwork and explore potential career paths including those in the audio and engineering fields.”
The New 250XG Victory Gaming Headset
Due for release in October 2022, the 250 XG Victory Gaming Headset provides gamers newly enhanced levels of audio quality and an immersive experience when paired with a home gaming console or eSports team - at an unbeatable price point. Full spectrum sound and unmatched voice connectivity, with both teammates and opponents, are housed in a winning, over-ear style headset. Ergonomically-shaped ear cushions, made with moisture-wicking mesh fabric, provide 100%-contact around the ear, minimizing external noise infiltration and improving sonic quality. A unique flip-down “Silicon Flex” adjustable microphone boom, fitted with an omni capsule, can be optimally positioned to exact needs, capturing diverse vocal qualities and unique inflection while minimizing background noise. The model includes an easy-to-access gaming style volume control with mic boom mute, all built into a thick braided cable that protects connectivity and is designed to stand up to years of use and abuse.
“As a 501c3 non-profit, partnerships and sponsorships are vital to our ability to provide valuable experiences to youth. When NASEF develops partnerships, we’re looking for industry experts who will help build a base of knowledge and mentorship for our students,” said Gerald Solomon, founder and executive director of NASEF. “ThinkWrite headsets are awesome; clearly they are experts at audio engineering and technology. We’re thrilled to provide students with ThinkWrite headsets as a reward for their efforts and successes. Even more, we can’t wait to engage students in exploring the exciting field of audio technology with ThinkWrite staff.”
ThinkWrite is also working with educators to develop relevant educational materials, which will be availableto all NASEF members. As with all NASEF curriculum, these materials will be free of charge.
The North America Scholastic Esports Federation (NASEF) is on a mission to provide opportunities for all students to use esports as a platform to acquire STEM/STEAM-based skills and critical communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills needed to thrive in work and in life.
