Roccat Kave 5.1 Headset Review
Published: 25th May 2010 | Source: Roccat | Price: £72.72 |
Headsets are a very difficult thing to buy. Unlike many other items of hardware they live in that special place reserved for those things that you really have to try to appreciate. Keyboards, Mice and monitors also really need to be used to get a true feel for them.
Unfortunately try-before-you-buy doesn't really apply to computer hardware. There certainly isn't a test drive option where you can sit in your local hardware emporium and play until you're bored before buying.
That's where Overclock3D comes in. Thanks to our policy of testing everything long and hard and only being honest, we're here to take that brow-furrowing away from you.
Recently we reviewed all four parts of the Roccat SDMS, and found them to be high quality products, well designed and well priced. This was after we'd reviewed their Kone mouse and found it also to be fantastic.
Roccat seem to be on something of a roll lately when it comes to high quality peripherals. Taking a look around their website you can see that they have a very holistic design principle with everything nicely matching. The Kave 5.1 Headset is no exception, following the charcoal grey/electric blue theme we're used to seeing.

Had my pair for about two months now and can't say I've ever been so happy with a headset. These things are much higher quality than my Sennheiser PC-350 headset. The sound quality is miles apart, even more amazing considering they costed about 70% of the PC-350 cost at the time.
The only draw back for me is that I find the ear cups to feel a little warm on the ear on extended use (7+ hour sessions)... but those sessions aren't a frequent thing for me.Quote
