What a year ROCCAT have had. We have seen a countless exchange of innovation from a variety of products - Kone+, Pyra, Kova and that only includes mice, we have also seen a new keyboard and many gaming surfaces. They certainly haven't been idle in 2010.

Earlier on in the yea saw the launch of 2 new audio solutions by ROCCAT, the Vire Gaming Headset which were classified as the 'lightest headset in the world'. A few months before the launch of the Vire though, ROCCAT launched a fully closed solution named the Kave. As of yet we haven't looked at the Kave, it has been on the list though. So today sees the day when we finally take a long awaited look at the ROCCAT Kave.



ROCCAT's Take:
A Desert Eagle isn't worth its fancy name, if you don't know where to aim. Imagine your advantage within the heat of the battle when you exactly hear where your opponents are before you can actually see them. Knowing the position of your enemy is half the frag. Realistic 3D surround sound makes you locate your opponents easily by the noise they generate. The desktop control enables you to adjust to situations quickly with sound and microphone mute buttons and volume control for different channels.
