5 out of 5 eggs Roccat Kave 5.1 10/23/2011

This review is from: ROCCAT KAVE 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset

Pros:

Quality---This headset comes close to matching the audio quality of audiophile headphones that are 4-5 times the price of these. They really do have Real! 5.1 Sound, and they sound simply superb. I have even higher expectations when I install my G1.Sniper motherboard and hear them through the Creative sound.
---Mic is also nice, a bit on the less sensitive side but not really a con because mic boost can easily fix that. I'm also a bit quiet. On Ventrillo and Murmur, people tell me I sound great (my voice too haha).
---Engineering. They're huge, but that's not much of an issue for me. I consider it a pro because it defines hardcore.

Cons:

---Slight discomfort in the top middle area of headpiece, it's a slight pressure on the top of the head. You either forget about it because you're blown away by the amazing sound or reposition the resting spot for better comfort.
---Currently using with Realtek 7.1 sound on a Gigabyte Ud3r(Rev2.0) board and getting some whining feedback. Unnoticeable when playing sounds and no effect on sound quality (I think), but it's slightly distracting when there's nothing running.

Other Thoughts:

Amazing. German engineering is the best; most products that have lasted generations in my household are German manufactured.
I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile, but my hearing is extremely good. This headset is extremely accurate in pinpointing sound location and distance in games. I sometimes turn my head in response the sound is reproduced so well.
