QPAD QH-1339 Pro Gaming Headset Review

QPAD QH-1339 Pro Gaming Headset Review


We’ve reviewed some QPAD headsets before but today is something special. 

Rather than replicate the endless parade of identikit headsets that are designed for gamers, at a certain price point, and all fairly hard to distinguish from one another, QPAD have teamed up with beyerdynamics to produce the most high-end headset we’ve encountered.

beyerdynamic, for those unfamiliar with them, are a company that specialises in audio solutions for a range of professional applications. Their expertise is in fidelity and so the QPAD QH-1339 has the potential to redefine what we can expect in a headset. Indeed it’s probably fairer to say that this is a pair of headphones with a microphone attached rather than a pure headset, but before we get down to the nitty gritty, let’s give the two companies from this partnership a moment to share their views  :

“We at QPAD feel privileged and excited that we have been given the opportunity of teaming up with one of the world’s absolute leading developers of professional headphones as beyerdynamic truly is,” says Thomas Gallus Jensen, Sales Director of QPAD. And he adds: “We are confident that the QH-1339 headset will be at the top of every gamers’ wish list, as it is nothing but first class in every aspect. This is also why we dare to give out a 5-year warranty on it”.

“We at beyerdynamic are looking forward to this long-term strategic partnership with QPAD” says Bastian Ziebart, Product Manager at beyerdynamic, adding: “QPAD possesses a vast knowledge in gaming just as we do in electro acoustics. This combination makes this an ideal partnership, which we are all very happy about, and there no doubt will be more exciting gaming products coming out of our partnership in the future.”

Technical Specifications

Regular readers will be familiar with the 20/20 system that nearly all headsets employ. From the first to the last, nearly every PC Gaming headset has a response of 20Hz to 20kHz. The influence of beyerdynamics is instantly felt in the 5Hz to 30kHz response of the QH-1339. A vastly superior offering that should give plenty of headroom for the audio to ‘breathe’.
