New QPAD QH-85 & QH-90 headsets bring Hi-Fi to the game
The sound of success
-New QPAD QH-85 & QH-90 headsets bring Hi-Fi to the game
With the launch of two new headsets, the QH-85 and the QH-90, premium gaming gear provider QPAD aims to broaden the experience for all gamers by bringing Hi-Fi to the gaming scene! There is nothing quite like the fantastic feeling of immersing yourself deep in to the world of your favorite game. Gaming is an audio-visual experience, and many gamers will even argue that sound actually plays a more important role than the graphics, in creating the magical feeling and ambience of a game. We at QPAD believe this too, and that is why we created two hi-fi capable gaming headsets with premium audio performance and excellent ergonomics.
Many gamers focus so much on the visual part of gaming, they forget all about the sound. It is not uncommon to see people spending thousands of Euro on top-notch computers with all the latest graphics cards, monitors, keyboards, mice and what not, then plugging in a no-name headset, thinking no more of it. In doing so, they are depriving themselves from a huge part of the magic created by game studios and producers. The audial dimension of gaming matters,and we at QPAD truly believe that a good portion of all audio-depraved gamers out there will be blown away by the gaming experience when using a good pair of headphones, such as the QPAD QH-85 or QH-90.
Even so, sound is not only a question of experiencing a game to it´s full potential. The ability to hear and interact with game audio actually gives you a competitive edge. In many popular titles, skilled players will actively use sound as ameans of telling where their enemies are. Sound is often a crucial piece of information when deciding how to act and react in many situations.
Of course, you will need a headset capable of reproducing all nuances and frequencies. The Hi-Fi capability of the new QPAD QH-85 & QH-90 will not only open a world of magical sounds for you, it can also give you an advantage in many games. The QH-85/90 are not just headsets, they are Hi-Fi capable headphones equipped with a premium microphone. The QH-85:s are designed with open cups and will produce a natural sound with clear bass, mids and highs. The open design allows for some sound leakage from the surrounding environment. The QH-90:s are designed with closed cups, and thus background sound elimination. They produce a somewhat more pronounced bass, and crispy, clear highs, but with slightly softer mids.
Key features of the QH-85 & QH-90 are:
• Hi-Fi capable 53mm drivers for supreme audio quality
• 15-25.000 Hz frequency response
• Detachable microphone (quick and easy to plug/unplug for music-only purposes)
• Solid aluminum construction for durability and stability
• Super-soft padded leather headband and velour padding on cups for maximum comfort
• Closed cup design on QH-90 for enhanced bass-reproduction and background sound elimination
• Open cup design on QH-85 for natural Hi-Fi audio with a minimum of sound leakage.
RELEASEDATE: 20th of August 2012
RECOMMENDED RETAIL PRICE: 99 EUR

With the launch of a new high-performance gaming mouse, world renowned eSports gear provider QPAD once again breaks new ground. The QPAD 5K LE laser gaming mouse offers unmatched speed, accuracy and control. An easy pick for a tough gaming crowd.
The heart of the QPAD 5K LE is a brand new next generation gaming-grade laser sensor from Avago - the A9800. This sensor offers previously unmatched accuracy and tracking abilities, with a minimum of ripple, that often plague other mice on high DPI-settings. The 9800 is capable of delivering a resolution ranging from 200 to a stunning 8200 CPI/DPI, with a sample rate of 12 000 fps. This has previously only been possible though firmware extrapolation, or lens magnification, with catastrophic results in terms of accuracy and precision. The QPAD 5K LE offers true 8200 CPI, and will deliver absolute performance and precision, every time, all the time!

QPAD MK-85 & QPAD MK-50
In touch with your best performance
World renowned eSports and gaming gear company QPAD widens their product range with two brand new keyboards: the QPAD MK-85 and MK-50. Although sharing some common features, the boards still differ greatly. One offers world's first groundbreaking technology with no expenses spared, and the other attempts a break at the so sought after “Best bang for the buck” award.
QPAD has made quite a name for themselves over the years, as provider of top of the line gaming gear, targeted at pro gamers and demanding enthusiasts. Their new premium keyboard, the QPAD MK-85 is designed to be the gamers dream. Featuring all the qualities customers expect from any QPAD product, such as superior build quality, unsurpassed durability and a well thought out design and layout, the MK-85 offers one truly unique feature, making it one of a kind in the world of keyboards.
Full N-key roll over with USB!
The QPAD MK-85 is the world's first mechanical keyboard offering full N-key roll over via USB. Since the PS/2 connector is being phased out and several manufacturers of computers and motherboards do not offer this option, many gamers are left with no way of utilizing the benefit of the full roll over feature, because their gaming rig does not support that type of connection. With the MK-85, this will not be a problem. No more need for dual cables or a PS/2 to USB adapter. The groundbreaking technology of the MK-85 allows all the functionality of the board, such as USB hub, the red back light and the full N-key roll over, through the use of just one single USB cable.
Cherry MX Red mechanical switches
QPAD has decided to use the Cherry MX Red switches for both the MK-85 and the MK-50. The Cherry MX Red switch is basically a lighter version of the MX Black switch. It operates with an actuation point of 2mm and requires a pressure of 45g for the key to register a stroke. Furthermore, the actuation point and release point of the switch are identical, which will facilitate precision and control in games that require multi tapping. Unlike the Cherry MX Blue switches of the MK-80, the Cherry MX Red switches are not tactile and do not offer any audible feedback. Some gamers prefer audible and tactile feedback, and some prefer none. The important thing here is that QPAD now offers a keyboard for both groups.
The red back light of the MK-85 is produced through individual LED:s for every key. The MK-85 also comes with programmable keys, audio connectors, and exclusive software for setting up gaming profiles. In short: Anything a serious gamer would ever want, is to be found in the MK-85.
The other board of the family might not, like its bigger brother, sport world's first, cutting edge technology, but breaks new ground in its own right. Never before has quality, feel and precision been so affordable. The MK-50 is essentially a stripped down MK-85. Without the back light, programmable keys or extra audio and USB connectors, the board still offers the same outstanding performance and feel of a top of the line mechanical keyboard, but with an affordable price tag!
Although old news for existing QPAD customers, some common features of all the QPAD keyboards still deserve to be mentioned, such as key switches built to last 50 million strokes, full N-key roll over, gold plated connectors for ultra low latency, and media keys for easy control of playback, pause, skip track etc.
Following the block busting success with the award winning MK-80, competition in the upper segments of gaming gear increases with the birth of these new members of the QPAD keyboard family. Not only do they offer versatility and choice regarding the gamers' personal preferences of switches, but also broadens the assortment offered by QPAD. For the picky gamer that wants extra everything, the MK-85 is the natural choice. The MK-50 on the other hand, offers supreme build quality and durability, along with unmatched control and feel at a very competitive price.
As an extra treat for the holidays, QPAD also offers a unique opportunity for customers to order a limited supply of any of the company's three boards (MK-50, MK-80 & MK-85) with the Cherry MX switches of their choice, be it blue, black, brown or red. That means you could get your hands on a MK-85 with Cherry MX Blue, or Black switches, if that is your desire.
Check out www.qpad.com for more information!
QPAD will present the MK-85 and the MK-50 to fans, gamers, the industry, and the world, for the very first time at the world’s biggest gaming festival: Dreamhack, held in Jönköping, Sweden 24-27 November.
