Chauncey Gardner-Johnson (CJ) was drafted in the 2019 NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints. He quickly became a defensive leader known for his bold personality and his defensive prowess. Originally from Cocoa, Florida, CJ chose to play college football for the Florida Gators where he was a standout student athlete, earning MVP honors on multiple occasions in bowl games. As his on-field talents solidified he also became an avid gamer, streaming popular games like Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Madden, and Fortnite with his 2X Global gaming team.
Gardner-Johnson’s arsenal of PC gaming accessories begins with ROCCAT’s Kone Pro Air wireless PC gaming mouse. The Kone Pro Air combines the brand’s iconic and refined ergonomic shape with its latest tech, including ridiculously fast Titan Optical Switches, Stellar Wireless for optimized signal strength and battery life, the Owl-Eye 19K DPI Optical Sensor, Heat-Treated Pure PTFE Glides, and a lightweight 75g Bionic Shell that showcases ROCCAT’s standout AIMO RGB lighting. For his keyboard, CJ uses the Vulcan TKL Pro, which popular gaming and lifestyle site T3 rated 5 out of 5 stars plus a T3 Platinum Award. The Vulcan TKL Pro is the smaller format, tenkeyless version of ROCCAT’s multiple award-winning Vulcan series of PC gaming keyboards. The Vulcan TKL Pro also delivers the speed of ROCCAT’s Titan Optical Switches, plus a sleek design with unique and alluring AIMO RGB lighting.
For gaming audio, Chauncey Gardner-Johnson uses his two favorite headsets from ROCCAT and Turtle Beach. ROCCAT’s Syn Pro Air wireless PC gaming headset features the sleek design the brand is known for and blends it with Turtle Beach’s gaming audio expertise. The Syn Pro Air features ROCCAT’s Stellar Wireless tech to optimize signal strength and battery life, and the same transparent Bionic Shell design that showcases the headset’s impressive AIMO RGB lighting. For game audio and microphone performance, the Syn Pro Air delivers immersive 3D audio that lets gamers hear from all directions, including above and below. Signature Turtle Beach features include large and powerful 50mm Nanoclear™ drivers, Superhuman Hearing® for a competitive advantage, ProSpecs™ Glasses-Friendly Memory Foam Cushions, and the detachable Flip-to-Mute TruSpeak™ Microphone for crystal-clear communication.
When he’s not using the Syn Pro Air, Gardner-Johnson can be seen using Turtle Beach’s Stealth 600 Gen 2 headset.
