 With four mini-jacks to provide surround sound and a USB connection to control the lighting, a pair of these would put even an NFL coach to shame.  A control is also attached to the USB cord, which allows separate control of each of the front, rear, centre and bass speakers, pushing this beyond the capabilities of many 5.1 headsets on the market.  Hardware Secrets were impressed by the audio capabilities of the earcups and the microphone as well as the compactness of the headset when folded up.  They did feel that at a price of $120 Roccat could have included a carrying bag; it would also be nice to see them back in stock.

"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."

From Australia here and Ive been using these for the last 3-4 years now, basically since they came out for ~$150AUD and they are great! especially for CS:S where the 5.1 really comes into handy.

Recently my first pair broke after I dropped them (I"M TALL ALRIGHT >:( ), and after some looking around I couldn't find anything- just right. So I ended up buying another set of them (at a much lower $85AUD), and LOVING them thus far. :D

2 thumbs up from me, highly recommended!
