Roccat Kulo Stereo Gaming Headset Review

Review Score:
1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Regular readers will have already seen our review of the Roccat Kave gaming headset that we published a few weeks back.  Overall the Kave was an impressive headset which had a number of desirable features, such as dedicated 5.1 surround sound.  Unfortunately, this caused it to be quite heavy and expensive; two traits which are likely to put off a number of users.  So Roccat have sent us their latest gaming headset that promises to be lightweight and considerably cheaper than the Kave.

Today we are going to look at the Kulo stereo gaming headset from Roccat which is targeted more towards casual gamers than the high-end crowd attracted by the Kave.  Its feature list is more sparsely populated than that of the Kave so it comes in around £15 – £20 cheaper.  At this price point it is up against some tough competition from the likes of SteelSeries so we’re eager to see how it performs.

    I bought this headset. It is actually pretty good although I have to agree with the sound quality comments. It goes very loud but there is considerable distortion at the upper 30% of the volume. They should have limited the output earlier.

    The drivers are quite budget oriented meaning it can muddle up complex arrangements. classic is terrible on them, but synth pop is ok as long as the bass isn’;t too forceful.

    Gaming they are good, I forget they are on as they are light and comfortable.

    fair review, but I would recommend them to people who aren’t too fussy about the sound quality,.

    My frustration.. clearly has no end! I’ve been through $500 worth of headsets in the last few months.. trying desperately to find a perfect headset.

    During the Corsair HS1 review. Zardon clearly nailed the fact that the bass was more natural instead of the artificial bass we seem to get with most other headsets.

    My god. I love the Corsair HS1. And i want its perspective on sound. But… i miss the artificial bass. I dont want it on all the time but i do love the feeling you get when that bass activates on the lows.

    I believe there is a place for the Corsair clarity. Its essential. I also believe that the artificial bass. The more pronounced bass that we’re accustomed to these days has a place. Although i love my Corasir’s and my ears are getting used to the natural bass it provides. I still miss the better part of the artificial bass that brings the lower end of the spectrum to life… but I think that this effect needs to be confined to a specific range.
