Introduction
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Roccat is releasing the Kave, a large foldable headset with 5.1 surround sound and a separate unit for volume control. The connectors include four minijacks (3.5 mm for the sound channels) and a USB (for the control unit and headset lighting). Let’s describe the Kave and then proceed to its evaluation.

Despite being big, the Kave is light and resistant because it has an aluminum core. The plastic body is rubberized so it doesn’t collect dust or greasy fingerprints. The ear cups completely envelop the ear, but the opening is small and rectangular, which is different from most models with round openings. The edge is very soft and covered by faux-leather. A hinge in each ear cup makes them bendable, which in turn makes the Kave a portable headset.
