Looking at the Roccat Kave as an overall package, it’s hard not to recommend it. It delivers great sound quality and performance. The construction of the headset is worth noting again. Even though it’s a bit on the heavy side, it has an amazingly solid feel to it which makes it a great choice for LAN’s or tossing it in a bag for on the go use. I also really liked the options provided in the desktop controller. Most headsets just feature your standard volume and mute options, but Roccat takes it a step further and eliminates the need to adjust volume settings through a soundcard manager on your PC. My only minor gripe with the Kave is the headband design as I don’t feel like it does an adequate job of weight distribution for extended periods of use. With an MSRP of $119.99, the Kave is a solid buy with all of the other features that Roccat have included when compared to other headsets in this price range. Overall, ThinkComputers gives the Roccat Kave 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset a 9 out of 10 score.
