Qpad QH-90 Headset Review
The Swedish company Qpad are probably a new name to most of us here. As their company name would attest they began producing mousepads at first. Now, twenty years later, they have a good range of peripherals all designed for the pro-gaming community.
Today we're going to be taking a look at their premium headset model, the QH-90. Available in both white and black it's actually taking a different slant than the majority of headsets we've come across. Rather than being all about thumping bass, the tagline for the QH-90 is "Brings HiFi to the game". This should give you a nice indication of what we can expect from the Qpad QH-90.
With a very tight marketplace dominated by the SteelSeries Siberia at the mid-range and the Corsair Vengeance Wireless at the higher-end, is the quality of the QH-90 sufficient to challenge the well established brands in the market?
The first thing that strikes you when looking at the specifications for the Qpad QH-90 is the size of the drivers. Most headsets run 40mm drivers, so to see 53mm ones definitely shows the determination to have good audio quality across the whole of the audio spectrum. Utilising 3.5mm jacks means that the QH-90 should be compatible with almost anything you care to plug it into.
