IFA 2022 is Teufel’s home game. So it’s hardly surprising that the Berlin-based sound company is presenting new products at the same time as the technology trade fair taking place in the German capital. Among other things, the Teufel Cage One will be part of the show. Here, according to the manufacturer, it wants to offer a “gaming headset without frills and bells and whistles, but with a fat sound at a fair price”.
Teufel Cage One as a presumed price-performance hit
With the Teufel Cage (2020), we were already able to put Teufel’s gaming headset under the microscope two years ago as part of an extensive test. At the time, it proved to be a worthy winner of our Platinum Award thanks to its high-quality workmanship and great sound. However, it also cost a lot of money with an RRP of 170.00 Euros at release. The Teufel Cage One is considerably cheaper, but by no means less high-quality. This is a wired headset in over-ear design. It is not only aimed at gamers, but can also be used in the home office.
The 40-mm drivers of the full-range linear HD type are supposed to ensure a good sound. Thanks to these, the sound image should not only be balanced, but also offer good bass on top of that. Teufel has also thought about user comfort. For example, the microphone can be freely swiveled and also completely removed to leave enough room for meal or drink breaks during gaming. A practical control unit on the audio cable itself serves to regulate the volume and also has a mute button ready.
Price and availability
Closer details about the Teufel Cage One are still missing. However, the hi-fi experts from Berlin have already made statements about the release and price. With an RRP of just under 80 euros, the new edition is significantly cheaper than its predecessor. It remains to be seen which possible compromises have to be made in view of the price savings. We will know how good the gaming headset is in the fourth quarter of 2022 at the latest, when it is supposed to go on sale. If you do not want to wait that long, you can visit Teufel’s website. The very good Cage (2020) is currently available there for just 99.99 Euros.
