This is the first time the world sees these headphones from Qpad! The mousepad maker has now gotten themselves into the headphone/headset business. With a pricetag of 400$ USD this might not suit just anyone, will it be worth it and can it really perform well enough to be worth 400$ both headset and heatphone wise.

The headphones come packed in a very nice and cool bag that protects them and keep your accessories together. I know Steelseries have done the same thing on a couple of their headphones. Inside you will find a warranty slip and some other papers with information. You also get a small USB adapter/soundcard that will run through your USB port. This means you won’t need your own soundcard or if you are for some reason lacking one this will cover it.

Qpad he developed these headphones with the famous headphone manufacturer Beyerdynamic. The headphone plugs in to your USB port and it will allow you to plug in your headphones and also the mic. On the side you have a volume controller and on the top there is a mute button. These all make it easier for you to game with and I personally like to have access to these buttons without having to play around in windows.
