Roccat Vire Gaming Headset

Introduction

The gaming peripheral market has been dominated by Razer and Logitech for a very long time, however due to rapid growth recently new companies have been emerging wanting to get a bite of the cherry. This leads us nicely into ROCCAT who have developed a complete range of gaming peripherals to compete with those offered by Razer and other manufacturers but we have yet to see how they compare.

Today we are going to look at the ROCCAT Vire gaming headset which is optimized for mobile gaming, although still compatible with any PC, and similar to the Razer Moray+ headset we recently reviewed.

Packaging and Bundle

The Vire is supplied in a large, high-quality cardboard box which is similar in design to the rest of ROCCAT’s range. The front door is secured by a magnet and opens up to reveal a plastic window through which the earphones themselves can be viewed alongside various facts and figures about the product. The large size of the packaging means there is also ample protection for the headset and all of the bundled accessories.

Inside the box, ROCCAT have thoughtfully included two adapters so that the headset can easily be used with both laptops and desktops and also a small bag to store the headset in when it’s not being used. The storage bag provides adequate protection for the earphones during transportation however is very basic in design and is made from seemingly low quality fabric which feels a little cheap.

The quick-installation guide outlines all the basic details of the unit whilst also displaying diagrams showing which devices it is compatible with and which adapters, if any, are required for each device.

Worth noting is that unlike the Razer Moray+, the inbuilt microphone cannot be used with a Sony PSP or a Nintendo DS, although the earphones themselves can.
