The Bottom Line

Roccat has done it again, Kave 5.1 has it all. People are very pleased with the fitting and the sound it generates. Kave has a typical headset look with the round ear cones and the big pads. The volume controller can really do its work but some reviewers think Roccat could have worked a bit more with it.
