One company I always like to visit with at CES is ROCCAT, as Sean and I rolled up on these folks when they were in their infancy and attending their very first CES in 2012. They have grown substantially over the last four years, and this year they brought us a couple of new items to look at.
Roccat brought three Mice with them to the show, the Nyth, Kiro and Kova, which was released last December. Both of these mice have a great look and have all the features that Roccat puts into their mice. We should be taking a closer look at the Kiva here shortly with a full review.
However, the highlight of the products Roccat brought to the show was the unreleased Roccat Renga gaming headset. We were actually privy this last week, but due to embargo were unable to talk about it until the official release came out yesterday. The Renga is very lightweight and extremely comfortable form the time we were able to spend with it at CES. The press release is after the jump, but it features 50mm drivers is compatable with the PS4 and Xbox one and will retail for only $49.99 when it hits stores at the end of February 2016.
Take a look at the Roccat Renga unboxing video below and check out images from the CES:
ROCCAT ANNOUNCES RENGA STEREO GAMING HEADSET
Headset boasts a premium audio experience with comfortable design
Hamburg, 14 January 2016 – Say hi to the Renga, the latest studio grade-stereo headset offering from German peripherals manufacturer ROCCAT. Complete with compatibility for PC, PlayStation®4, mobiles, tablets and more, it promises a premium stereo audio experience with its comfortable over-ear design built on a reinforced structural housing as its framework.
The Renga features high-spec 50mm neodymium driver units in each ear cup. The drivers are optimally aligned, providing an immersive and dynamic audio experience with crisp trebles and deep, powerful bass. The headset is designed on a reinforced skeletal frame which makes it low in weight and yet surprisingly robust. This provides the framework for a trio of comfort-providing extras, such as ventilated ear cups, an ergonomic headband and plush ear cushions. Suitable for countless hours of continued use, the Renga makes it feel like you’re not wearing a headset at all.
The inline remote control provides an easy-access overview for the most-used sound settings. This allows for on-the-fly, no-look control, enabling an intuitive gaming experience. The Renga’s crystal clear rotatable mic complements swapping easily between gaming and music playback. The premium over-ear headset experience is not just limited to the PC, however. Out of the box, the Renga’s outstanding sound is compatible with the PlayStation®4, Xbox One controllers with a 3.5mm headset jack, as well as mobiles and tablets.
“The Renga is the first of our newly-designed headsets built for just one use – the perfect stereo sound experience”, says René Korte, CEO and founder at ROCCAT. “Lightweight, robustly built and compatible with almost any device, the Renga is the everyday gaming headset that comes with an affordable price tag, without making compromises in quality.”
The ROCCAT Renga will be available in late February with a suggested retail price of $49.99 Euro/USD.
