Roccat Syva High Performance In-Ear Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
The Roccat Syva headset will set you back £29.99 from More Computers, although most retailers are currently listing it at £32. This seems like a pretty good deal to me given their overall performance and build quality; they’re actually cheaper to pick up than the now several years old Roccat Vire in-ear headset which the Syva are effectively replacing.
I often like to game in privacy by wearing a headset, and wearing a big over-ear headset with a portable device can often feel like overkill, especially when you’re sitting on the train, not to mention that carrying a big headset in your bag with a portable gaming device can be impractical, defeating the “mobile” aspect by adding clutter to your bag. The Syva are a perfect solution to this, as they’re small enough to fit in your pocket along with your smart phone and certainly easy to throw into your backpack when not in use.
I’ve always got a set of headphones on me while I’m out and about anyway, perfect for plugging into my Vita, mobile or similar device, but the Roccat Syva beat out so many of the sets I’ve been using by a large margin. Their performance is spectacular and as a music lover I can’t get enough of their bass reproduction and clarity. The fact that I can use this headset for in-game chat, skype calls, answering my phone and controlling my music from my mobile just sweetens the deal. I often take a set of headphones, as well as a larger headset with me when I’m travelling, but from now on I think I’ll just be taking the Syva as they are great all-rounders.
“Roccat have created an affordable, versatile and great performing product with the Syva, it may not be enough to have you throwing your 5.1 headset in the bin just yet, but if you’re looking for a great set of headphones, or a very portable chat headset, then look no further.”
