ROCCAT Kave 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset Review

Rating: 8.0.

KitGuru has had the opportunity to test a number of ROCCAT products in the past and have been impressed with their quality and performance. Today we are going to look at the ROCCAT Kave gaming headset that has an impressive specification and feature set.

This headset was actually released a while back but we haven’t had a chance to look at it until now.  The most exciting feature in our opinion is the 360° surround sound system which ROCCAT have implemented in this headset, comprising of three separate drive units in each earpiece.
