  • Conclusion: I have to start out with saying that this is a nice headset with a steep pricetag. I believe 160$ is a bit to much for a headset even though it has a nice remote and cool features.

ROCCAT Kave 5.1 Review

31 October 2013
  • Summary: This is a set that excels at recreating great ambience, nothing more. But, if that's all you want, this set is perfect. We personally feel that 5.1 sound from a headset is overrated, but for those who really want it, this is the best option by far. This is not a set that pro-gamers will even want or appreciate, they've got the Steelseries V2 for that, but for an enthusiast, this is an excellent choice; it also makes for an excellent gift.
  • Pros: Great Design, Surround sound that actually works, Everything that a gamer might want, Great control pad
  • Cons: Sub-par for music, Bass lacks precision, Build quality

ROCCAT Kave Gaming Headset Review

11 December 2012
  • Summary: Final Thoughts Looking at the Roccat Kave as an overall package, it’s hard not to recommend it. It delivers great sound quality and performance. The construction of the headset is worth noting again. Even though it’s a bit on the heavy side, it has an amazingly solid feel to it which makes it a great choice for LAN’s or tossing it in a bag for on the go use. I also really liked the options provided in the desktop controller.
  • Pros: Great audio quality for gaming and just about anything else, Solid construction and design, Desktop controls are quick and convenient, Removable mic and fold up design makes it a great option for LAN use
  • Cons: The headband causes comfort issues after extended use

  • Excerpt: Aside from visual graphics, audio feedback is one of the most important ways gamers discern information about their gaming world.  Audio cues are incredibly important, in fact, during multiplayer first person shooters when enemies are located behind the player or to the side.  A good set of headphones or speakers can allow a gamer to detect an opponent before he even sees them.

ROCCAT Kave 5.1 headset review

22 April 2012
  • Excerpt: ROCCAT is a new player in the US computer peripheral market, but they’ve been around on the European scene for some time. The company is looking to make a big statement with their initial US product lineup, and their first audio offering is the Kave 5.1 analog surround sound headset . The Kave 5.1 headset is a true 5.1 headset in that it doesn’t rely on virtual surround sound voodoo.

Roccat Kave Headset Review

Hardware Secrets
30 March 2012
  • Summary: The best features of the Kave are its portability, having a good surround performance while gaming, and its microphone. The use of the illuminated tip to indicate whether the microphone is on mute is great. Because of the small rectangular opening on the ear cups, no sound bleeds to the microphone. On the other hand, that shape is somewhat uncomfortable and can be tiring on the ear. The separate unit allows on-the-fly independent volume control.

ROCCAT Kave 5.1 Gaming Headset

23 February 2012
  • Summary: The ROCCAT Kave headset design is good up to a point. The noisy amplifier, general sound quality and the headband construction is a major let down. The mechanical design is ROCCAT at its best, it is durable, light weight and easily adjustable, however, the rest of the design could do with a bit more attention. After a lot of tweaking you can get good surround sound performance, but with it comes a loss of detail that is massive.
  • Pros: True 5.1 surround sound, External USB powered amplifier, Good directional positioning in games compared to price, Good quality microphone, Very good build quality, Microphone mute LED, Light weight
  • Cons: Music and movie playback sound quality, Coherency issues, Noisy amplifier section, Slightly annoying headband

  • Conclusion: It also has a Movie and Game preset switcher, though there is hardly any difference between both. However, I do feel that the Movie preset gives a better surround than the Game preset which appears to ‘normalize’ the sound throughout.
