In conclusion, the ROCCAT Kave is an impressive gaming headset even now, a few years after it’s initial release. It boasts an impressive feature set to rival the best headsets out there. The dedicated surround sound is perhaps the most exciting feature of all and is what differentiates the Kave from most other gaming headsets on the market.
When it comes to performance, the Kave is very impressive, creating an realistic and immersive gaming experience that reflects the high price of the headset. Our only slight issue with the sound produced is the lack of substance in the lower registers. This can be rectified by adjusting the channel levels accordingly but will reduce the overall maximum volume level of the headset.
As we have found in the past with ROCCAT products, the construction of the Kave is very solid and we’re sure that it will last a good few years, even for those who plan to use it daily. The rubberised paint finish should also prove durable and provides a good compromise between aesthetics and practicality.
For most people, the final decision will depend on the price of the headset. The ROCCAT Kave can be yours for a shade over £65 at Amazon.co.uk which makes it quite good value for money all things considered. It is a little more pricey than our old favourite, the SteelSeries Siberia V2 which is much more flexible as it can be used with a vast array of devices. But for what the Kave offers, we feel this price is justified and we’re sure that if you do decide to buy it, you won’t be disappointed.
