QPAD QH-1339 Pro Gaming Headset Review

Up Close

The combination of a closed back design and large, softly padded ear pieces ensure little audio leakage to the outside world but, much more importantly, it ensures the outside world doesn't intrude into ours.

The ear cups are removable should you need to clean them, and give us an look at the level of detail in the design. The holes not only allow for easy drying but also allow some sound to come through, rather than risk blocking it and muffling it.

Connectivity is amply catered for. As well as the regular two 3.5mm connections for soundcards and portable devices, the QH-1339 come complete with a 1/4 adaptor for home stereo equipment, once again showing the beyerdynamic design input.

As well as the analogue jacks, the QH-1339 comes with a USB adaptor for those without a suitable sound card in their system. Despite being plastic it's extremely well built, with the mute and volume buttons giving a reassuring click when used.

Oh wow, someone finally did it. Didn't think it'd be QPad in all honesty, but that's pretty awesome.

Personally I'd say the price isn't bad if these actually sound half decent.Quote

I wonder how they compare against the beyerdynamic 880s though, price wise they are around the same but you do get the mic with the QH-1339.Quote

I have the MMX 300 which is effectively the same product. I got it from a sale quite a while ago.

What I can say is that currently the microphone connection has started wearing out a bit. Also, once when I opened it, the plastic side broke into two halves. I could manage to get it back there, it's in two pieces alright but they fit together when the screws are there.

The plastic used in the MMX 300 at least isn't exactly the best. I've seen the same kind of plastic on cheaper lightning accessories; by the time you're going to change the bulb, the plastic has hardened so much that you can't really get it out without breaking it. The clips on the side are plastic, and very_frail. If you need to temporarily remove the headband and the cups, be careful with the screws.

The sound quality decent, the microphone quality isn't amazing but it is far better than some Zalman clip-on or other such alternatives.

When it's all said and done, I'd probably go for some Sennheiser alternative or get DT770 / DT990 from Beyerdynamics themselves and combine it with an Antlion Modmic. The headphones which the MMX300 and QH-1339 effective are, are a pair of DT770 32Ohm limited edition headphones. They're very easy to drive.Quote

Might as well get the DT880s if these are only the DT770s. You can get the DT880s and a mod mic for the same price as these. Or get the DT770s and a mod mic for £150, same thing but £80 cheaper :\Quote
