Cavimanus Virtual 7.1 Headset Detailed Features

The Genius GX-Gaming Cavimanus latest software was included in the packaging, software is compatible with Windows 7 and Vista.

The software after installing is located in the control panel. It comes with a wide variety of options to play with. The software provides a visual representation of where the speakers are virtually around you. The visual interface allows either click and drag speakers around the person if you want certain channels to sound closer or further away or manually type in the desired volume differences. If 7.1 surround sound is too much for you then the software also allows you to select 5.1 or 2.1 sound as well.

This tab has the microphone gain control, very useful to know how to turn yourself up or down depending on how well your team mates can hear you while speaking to them online. The Cavimanus by default is set to about 10% recording volume, for me it needed to be turned up from the start. However when I turned the recording volume to max my online friends could hear sounds on the other end of my house that even I wasnt aware of such as running water in the kitchen or someone coming through the front door.

The software can easily be utilized to customize the audio quality. This tab has an easy interface to understand and has unique environment features such as virtually changing the size of the room. This allows the room to appear either small and boxed in or open and the sound coming from far away.

Easy access volume control on the actual ear piece and vibration control toggle. This makes things far less complicated to turn up the volume. Most headsets typically have a control box built into the cord that can be distracting to locate and operate. One nice thing this volume control features is a smooth analog dial volume control, much easier to use than a digital volume control that requires several repeated button clicks find a desirable volume level.

Gold plated USB connector sporting the Cavimanus scorpion logo and a nifty design to easily identify this cable if necessary. Comes in handy when you have a mess of wires coming out from behind your computer and you need to unplug the right thing.

Looks like Genius did quite a decent job of this headset. I like the idea of the controls on the ear cup but I wish they wouldn't make these things from shiny plastic as it's just a fingerprint & smudge magnet. A nice rubberized coating like ROCCAT use on their Kave's would be the ticket.
