Qpad QH-90 Headset Review
The packaging for the Qpad QH-90 is excellent. So often lesser-known brands can go overboard with their design in an attempt to distract you from the behemoths of the genre, but the Qpad offering is tasteful and has all the relevant information neatly displayed.
Opening the very robust outer packaging reveals an internal box of even higher quality. Everything is made from the finest cardboard, with lots of high-density foam keeping the QH-90 protected from even the most inconsiderate postman.
As well as some hard-wired cabling on the headset itself there are a lot of extra cables in the box. We have a 2m extension cable, a 2-to-1 converter enabling the use of the QH-90 on your phone/tablet of choice, an inline remote for volume, play/pause and microphone muting, and finally the detachable microphone itself.
Photographing white on white is always a challenge, and the QH-90 is certainly white. Everything is white. If you're one of the modern brigade who likes everything in their life to resemble a fridge then you're well covered here. Heavily padded leather cups and headband should keep the QH-90 comfortable in even lengthy gaming sessions. The logo is embroidered on the headband and we can't recall another headset we've looked at that took this approach. It looks brilliant, and really enhances the overall sense of quality.
Adding to this solid sense is the aluminium ear-piece sections. In fact there is very little plastic to be found. Beneath a small removable cover is the location for the microphone. Often microphones are either permanently there, or if they are a removable option then it's obvious that something is missing from the headset. This solution enables you to use the QH-90 as just a pair of headphones if you so desire.
