Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Being a reviewer, it gets complex when you have to write negatively about a company that you know are very good at what they do. But that’s the call of duty that we must adhere to, and it is only sad that Roccat, one of the finest gaming hardware manufacturers, is...
Conclusion: A few questions appeared: First, how much of a difference does a soundcard make? Does the onboard sound-card always provide a lower sound quality or not? The last but not least, which combination of sound-card and headphones can produce better sound quality?
Conclusion: Final ThoughtsI like this device because it is small and has a very impressive sound quality, which is a brilliant combination for a headset. The quality of everything on this headset is very high and it feels very well built while certainly not being bulky.
Pros: Very good clarity at all frequencies, Gutsy bass, Very comfortable and light
Cons: Bass doesn’t have the warmth and depth, Liable to stick to your ears sligthly

To me the learge ear cups of the HS1A, especially combined with the soft fabric finish makes for a much more comfortable...
Pros: Microphone auto mute, Light and small design
Cons: Ear pad material, Volume controller, Muddy sound quality
Summary: The latest Stereo Gaming Headset from ROCCAT is named Kulo, is very light (suitable for LAN Parties), and comes with an unique feature: the Automatic Mic-Mute; also, the in-line volume control is very handy. Even if it is an on-ear model, it's confortable even after many hours of use.
Conclusion: This is a solid little headset that will sit nicely underneath the Kave in Roccat’s lineup, in terms of performance and price. It’s got plenty of features to get people interested and its nice angular lines and strong construction give it a professional feel as well as a bit of a gamer edge.
Pros: Solid sound output, Good stereo mix, Mic is clear and auto mute is nice, Looks great, Good price point
Cons: Could do with its own volume boosting ability, Gets a bit muddied when lots going on
