The G-Lab Korp Radium gaming headset and K-Stand Radon stand

A new brand, Korp Radium, one of The G-Lab’s headsets, recently came to visit me. The French-based company only travels in gamer peripherals, mostly in the budget category. They offer mice, keyboards, countless headphones, but they also have chairs and controllers. The majority of their products can be found in the price category between HUF 7 and 20 thousand (chairs are, by definition, an exception to this).

Our test subject is roughly in the middle of the range in terms of price and knowledge. The fancy-named Korp Radium headphones came to us in black, but can also be purchased in white. The attractive packaging reveals all important information about the product, such as the detachable microphone, the X-tra Bass System or the 50 mm drivers.

These are over-the-ear headphones, in Hungarian the cushions completely surround the ear. The advantage of this is that it does not start to press on the ears even after prolonged use. I can confirm this: it wasn’t uncomfortable even after an hour of playing, I didn’t have to adjust the headphones. Instead, the stuff is quite Bumford, but it is not heavy at all, it weighs only 275 grams. Obviously, it is not made of premium materials, but of simple plastic, but in this case this is more of an advantage than a disadvantage, because thanks to the low weight, the Korp Radium is comfortable to wear – it does not squeeze, but does not wobble on the head either.

A rather long, fabric-covered cable is connected to the headset, the other end of which ends in a 3.5 jack plug and a USB connector. The USB is responsible for powering the RGB lighting, so if you don’t plug it in, you won’t get a light show. For settings, you can also use the control panel on the cable, where you can turn on the lights, mute the microphone and change the volume.

Compared to its category, the Korp Radium sounds good enough, the extra bass is clearly noticeable, the volume can be adjusted on a wide scale, and no distortion is noticeable. Thanks to the over-the-ear design, ambient sounds are muffled quite well during wear, which is a plus point. At the same time, no software is included with the headset, so fine-tuning the sound is only possible within the framework of the possibilities provided by the operating system, in Hungarian there is absolutely nothing.

The headset’s removable and flexible microphone, on the other hand, gave a different picture. I couldn’t use it when connected to my computer, because there is a combo jack at the end of the cable, i.e. it only works with devices that have everything on a 3.5 connector. Thus, it works without problems when connected to a modern notebook, a mobile device with a jack connection or, for example, a PlayStation 4 controller, otherwise we have to buy a jack distributor for it. The quality of the microphone is average, the sound is a bit muffled, but it is quite adequate for the price level.

There is also an ear holder for the headphones, so The G-Lab sent a headphone stand called K-Stand Radon along with the headset. I had never used this before, and I didn’t really understand the raison d’être of such a product, but I had to realize that it could indeed be useful, even though it is a simple plastic block. Still, for a headset as big as the Korp Radium, it offers a much more space-saving storage solution, as it takes up significantly less space on our desk when placed on the stand. In addition, I have a relatively small table, so it immediately became apparent how much more practical and orderly I can store my devices.

The stand stands on rubberized, non-slip feet and can also be used as a USB hub thanks to the two 3.0 ports. We also receive a long cable covered with fabric for connection to our machine. As soon as it is plugged in, the lighting of the stand turns on immediately, in seven different, pulsating, alternating colors. Unfortunately, we have no control over this. It is not possible to turn it off, adjust the brightness, or set your own color, so if you want to use the USB hub function, you can only do so with continuous lighting.

It’s a shame that the mouse bungee is not included with the stand, even though we’ve seen it before with products of a similar caliber. In addition, it is a penny accessory, practically a rubber arm, into which we can fit the cable of our wired mouse, preventing it from getting caught in something.

Overall, using both The G-Lab products was a pleasant experience. The Korp Radium headset is quite convincing at the entry level, and due to its friendly price tag of 34.99 euros, it can also be a good companion for gamers with tighter budgets. The K-Stand Radon stand, which costs EUR 24.99, is a must, but due to the non-controllable lighting and the lack of a mouse bungee, I cannot recommend it.
