Stamford, CT – August 12, 2020 – Following the news that JBL has been named the official global gaming headset partner of leading esports brand 100 Thieves, the audio brand continues to grow its presence in the space with the addition of three professional esports streamers to its roster: Tyler Polchow aka “TeePee,” Ali Hassan aka “SypherPK” and Jay Won aka “Sinatraa.”
Recognizing the competitive advantage provided by the precisely engineered JBL Quantum gaming headsets, TeePee, SypherPK and Sinatraa have partnered with the brand to use its cutting-edge software for upcoming streams and competitions.

“Sound is an incredibly important part of gaming and JBL knows professional audio best,” said TeePee. “To perform my best, I always equip myself with the best high-performance gear, and JBL’s noise cancelling and JBL QuantumSURROUND sound technology take it to the next level. I am so excited to share these features with my gamer community.”
