Summary: Real 5.1 ideal for games like COD Battlefield 3 and other shooting games in witch 5.1 sound is essential for better gameplay. You can easily hear enemy walking towards you, and now you know from what angle is he coming. Mic is also really good. One thing i find not so great is that they are really heavy on the head. Not like after 1 hour, but after 2-3 hours your head will be in pain. And i mean head not ears they are especially comfy for ears.
Good microphone and sound. Uncomfortable headband. Heavy. Ear-cups closed.

Summary: This headset have nice microphone and good sound. Bass is good to, thanks to used vibration units. Actually bass is the best from what I hear in my life from headphones. But some people don't like it. They have a dark side too. The heavy headset with uncomfortable headband creating bad impression. Ear-cups have closed design. So headband require manual improvement for convenience.
ROCCAT Kave is a great choise it terms of price-quality-features.

Summary: I am a hardcore gamer and i also like to watch movies, so i was searchig for a sound surround headphones. ROCCAT Kave is a great choise it terms of price-quality-features. Recomend it! I use this headphones about a month and i like it. Headphones a little heavy, but it is ok. Comfortable for ears, not too much for a top of the head, but i use it about 5-6 hours non stop and it is ok, no big discomfort. Build quality is great. Good earpads. Hope it will not break.
Good sound quality for the price but TERRIBLE design. Risky purchase

Summary: Have had it since march 2013 and the hinge above the left cup just snapped while I was putting it on my head, Like I have always done. This essentially made it unusable since it wont hold in place anymore. Hoping for a repair/rma since it is supposed to have 2 year warranty. For the price, the features and sound quality are pretty good I would say but the design and build quality leave a lot to be desired.
Summary: Some people have said this is a really heavy set, personally, I haven't noticed that. It's really comfy at that. Surround sound works really well (once its been set up properly with the in-line controls for each part speaker set), and seems to be different for each game. So it can take a while to set up for each scenario. But once you have... de-cloaking spies beware! The microphone is a whole new set of strange...
Summary: If I were just rating this on sound quality, I'd give it a five. The surround sound system and the subwoofer they've put in these cans is quite exceptional. However the build quality is not the greatest as there is a definite flaw in the outer construction. A rather petite friend of mine briefly leaned on them while they were sitting on a sofa. The result was that the piece of plastic that keeps the cans pressed towards your head when wearing, snapped.
Summary: I've had these just over a month now, and I am quite surprised by how they sound for the price tag. The headset while being quite big is actually really comfortable(in my opinion), and make you feel quite isolated from the rest of the world. I've had no issues with the detachable microphone and usually leave it unplugged until I'm going to use it.
Summary: First of all, I think that the problem I have with this headset could only happen to me. The headset looks so cool. It's sleek and stylish. The audio quality is pretty good, but I'm not an audiophile user. The reason I gave this product a 2 stars is because I am having comfort issues with the headband. The foam of the middle square got compressed and never went back to its original shape, and is no longer soft.
Summary: Had to have the Roccat Kave Solid 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset replaced because the mic developed a fault. Amazon were great and sent new ones asap. I have my doubts about the quality of Roccat products, I had a expensive mouse from them and after 10 months that stopped working as well. I wouldn't buy from Roccat again but I might've been unlucky. Whilst they worked they were good.
