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