Roccat Kulo Stereo Gaming Headset Review

Rating: 7.0.

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.
