Roccat Noz Gaming Headset Review
A few months back, we tried out the Khan AIMO headset, which impressed us but now, there is a new headset. Roccat
Look & Feel
The Noz is an over the ear gaming headset for both PC & consoles. It’s black in colour, with a mix of matte & gloss sections, patterned fabric earcups & headband, and very subtle branding. It’s a plastic build but does have a metal headband for added durability. The headset has plenty of flexibility, to the point where I thought I may have snapped it.

The microphone works very well and is very clear. After reviewing some recorded audio from myself and feedback from friends during games, it was positive.
Lastly, the headset is very comfortable to wear. I used it over a number of sessions, for 2 to 3 hours at a time and had no complaints. No pains, no aches, no
The Roccat Noz won’t blow you away but for the price, it’s a decent headset, that’s worth a purchase. Audio quality is good, it’s compatible with PC & consoles and it costs just £59.99. Some concern over its build quality, it’s very
