Roccat Kave

Roccat Kave Review


Roccat have graced us with some of their fantastic peripherals in the past, with their Kone mouse still holding it’s place as our favourite gaming rodent of all time. Today, we’ve been sent over their latest headset, the Kave. It sports 5.1 surround sound, hand sewn noise cancelling ear cups, and an adjustable vibration unit. The remote is also something quite interesting, so let’s give it a look.
