"The Teufel CAGE is a sure bet"

Design - 9/10
Comfort - 9/10
Workmanship - 9/10
Sound quality - 9/10
Conclusion:

"The Teufel CAGE is a sure bet. Lets look at the essentials: a very good construction, high-quality materials that are breathable but sturdy, an above-average wearing comfort and a quality of off-road sound that produces an effective sound spatiality in video games. Teufel scores points with the CAGE on all levels and will convince gamers, despite the brand's lack of reknown, which we do not quite understand in view of all the qualities of this headset."

"Yes, the CAGE is a welcome surprise. There is nothing wrong with this headset. Teufel is not a widely-known brand in the gaming world (and for good reason, it's a Hi-Fi manufacturer first and foremost) that deserves a spotlight to be shone on this headset. It is just as good as the main competitors, and could even easily dethrone many big names in ths sector."

Master of Sound

Not only did our acousticians include the latest must-have features in our new gaming headset, CAGE comes equipped with incredible Teufel sound. No other gaming headset in this price class offers all of the following:

  • Enormous 40 mm linear HD drivers for balanced, highly natural playback
  • Extremely broad frequency spectrum for fulminating bass and a fine-resolution treble
  • Light and nimble driver design for excellent impulse fidelity
  • Large, over-ear immersion capsules for excellent noise isolation

Precision engineering

We wouldn’t be Teufel if we didn’t obsess over every detail. This includes perfectly balanced volume levels in each ear cup for a perfect stereo panorama, integrated air vents for comfort during longer gaming sessions and buttons with a unique haptic so that the headphones can be sightlessly controlled.

"We started by taking a close look at what gamers need and how we could best meet these needs. In the end, we’re especially proud of CAGE’s acoustic performance. The sound is just amazing!”

Robert Schwarz, product developer at Teufel

HD sound from any source

CAGE connects directly to PCs and notebooks via USB cable. The headset’s integrated USB sound card is superior to the onboard chip in many PCs and notebooks so that lossless, noise-free playback is guaranteed. In addition, CAGE’s software offers sound settings for enhancing the bass or altering the user’s vocals. CAGE can also be connected to source devices via mini jack.

Lefty or righty?

The tip of the microphone arm is equipped with a microphone. A second is located just outside the ear capsule. This allows the system to analyze time interval differences between the uptake of speech from two different locations. This information is then used to process crystal clear transmission without background noise, echo or feedback. In addition, the use of special foam eliminates breathing sounds. Those who prefer having the microphone on the other side can simply reposition it.

Mixed Audio Play feature and headset function

CAGE makes it possible to play a game on your PlayStation or Xbox console while simultaneously listening to your smartphone. Both signals are blended into the playback through the system’s internal mixer. Meanwhile, freely skip or pause tracks as you normally would.

This function also works with calls so you won’t have to interrupt your game to stay in touch with friends and family.

Smart touch controls

All buttons and controls on the CAGE were designed to be easily navigated by touch:

Immerse yourself in the action

Authentic surround sound gaming soundtracks (e.g. "Overwatch" with Dolby Atmos for headphones) are losslessly transmitted to your CAGE for the optimal localization of opponents. In addition, it’s possible to enhance the immersion effect of PC games with Teufel’s 7.1 surround sound algorithm.

Teufel Gaming PC Kopfhörer Headset CAGE

High-end workmanship

The CAGE does justice to its name with sturdy ear cups supported by a metal aluminium frame. An adjustable headband fashioned from lightweight spring steel is both comfortable and durable. Generous padding on the ear cups and headband are perfect for longer gaming sessions.

A 1.3 meter mini jack cable as well as a 3 meter long USB cable are included with delivery.

Test the CAGE for up to 8 weeks.

    "A good gaming headset can decide whether you win or lose in a nerve-wracking shooter game. Our test winner, the Teufel Cage, offered balanced sound reproduction and a microphone that transmits speech clearly. Best of all, it works with PCs, PS4, Xbox One and smartphones - and also has an additional button on the headset that can be used to answer calls."

    The Cage took first place in a comparative test with a total of 49 test devices.

    "Sound-wise, the Teufel Cage is a real all-rounder"
    gamersglobal.de 26.12.2017
    "[…] In the test no strong pressure on the ears could be felt even after long wearing. This promises good wearing comfort even on long gaming nights."

    "[…] Thanks to the high fidelity of the 40 mm driver [...] the Teufel Cage is sound-wise a real all-rounder instead of just a gaming headset."

    "The separate microphone also offers equally good fidelity [....]. You can attach it to the right or left of your headset, or leave it out altogether."

    "Teufel can above all show off a good and high-quality workmanship with their first gaming headset. The modification options are versatile and the jack connection allows for a wide variety of applications with smartphone and console players. […] All in all, Teufel has demonstrated a high level of quality with the "Cage", which [...] can certainly keep up with the competition."

    Testbericht - ocinside.de - CAGE - Kauftipp 09/2017
    "This headset processes audio at a consistently high level. [...] The wearing comfort is excellent, there are no painful pressure points, even after longer gaming or music sessions. The soft, memory-foam-cushioned pads fit the ears perfectly. The material used feels good and is easy to care for. The huge, anodised aluminum brackets look chic and are designed to last forever. [...] Volume control, a microphone switch and a button to answer phonecalls are all accessible on one of the ear pieces [...] The microphone can be worn on the right or left, or can be removed altogether for pure listening."

    "The Cage's sound is certainly impressive! The headphones really create a true sound experience with well balanced high-, mid- and bass-tones.The bass is powerful but not exaggerated and builds a symphony together with the high- and mid-tones, which reflect every detail in a crystal-clear way. A real feast for the ears! [...] The volume that the headset can produce is enormous [...]. But even at full volume, there is no distortion [...] The 7.1 features help to locate your opponents more precisely during gaming, and create a real impression of space. Of course, this is also reflected during film playback.


    Furthermore, the headset offers an additional connection option with a smartphone. Therefore, even whilst the headset is being used with your PC, a phone call can be accepted, or music imported from the smartphone. [...] The microphone reproduces the voice well and the noise reduction works as well. A further microphone capsule in the earpiece ensures that background noise is filtered out."

    "With the Cage, Teufel has succeeded in providing an excellent gaming headset! The audio-processing is impeccable, the wearing comfort excellent and sound highly impressive. This attests to the company's many years of experience in the audio field. [...] All settings can be personalised and customized. [...] After such a strong result, we would highly recommend the Teufel Cage and have awarded the headset the OCinside.de Purchase Tip Award 09/2017."

    "In terms of design, the CAGE stands out from the crowd. [...] The soft earpieces are particularly special, since they not only ensure a high level of wearing comfort, but have also been designed explicitly for glasses-wearers."
    "[...] you can connect the Teufel CAGE to two devices at the same time. Therefore, if you want to stay in touch whilst you play, you can connect your smartphone and use the micro-switch to enable phonecalls whilst still wearing your headset."
    "[...] even the smallest noises, which lie at the limits for most studio headphones, are clearly reproduced and make precise and detailed listening possible. [...] Overall, the sound is impressive [...] The headphones are equipped with an integrated USB sound card. [...] In comparison to mid-range headsets and other high-end competitors, the clarity of speech transmission with CAGE is particularly noticeable. "

The flexible and detachable microphone can be connected to the left or right of the headphone (the left and right audio channels automatically change the position)."
    "The closed design cancels external noise very well. A separate sound card is not required for the operation of the headset, since a USB version with surround sound function is already integrated."
    "[The] CAGE scored well in our test with clear high- and smooth medium audio playback. The bass is at once powerful and dynamic. The CAGE is therefore also suitable for listening to music. But the most important question for gamers is: Can the headphones reproduce a realistic virtual 7.1 sound? The answer: Yes! [...] "Xear Dynamic Bass" allows users to optimise the bass audio and "Xear Surround Sound" activates virtual all-round sound."

    "The workmanship and looks evince a sturdiness that is typical of Teufel. The ear capsules are massive and attached to a softly padded headband via metal anodized braces. Even the biggest ears can be accommodated without problem by the thick ear cushioning. In addition to high-end looks, the manufacturer took clever features into consideration that set CAGE apart from many competitors.”

    "With console games, it’s possible to connect CAGE to a PlayStation/Xbox and a smartphone at the same time, making it possible to listen to music or take calls while gaming. The full range of functions, however, can only be realized per USB connection to a PC with the installed software. This makes it possible to combine a many surround, equalizer and microphone modes with personal sound preferences. CAGE generally delivers a very dynamic sound. The bass is punchy and doesn’t drone excessively from the ear capsules. Fine details are cleanly reproduced; a broad soundstage is even present in the classic stereo mode.”

    "Teufel’s CAGE is the first gaming headset from the manufacturer and represents a three-point landing! This doesn’t come as much of a surprise since headphones and sound systems belong to the company’s DNA: The workmanship and materials are first class, the same goes for the wearing comfort and noise isolation. The headset can be flexibly adjusted and works with game consoles and smartphones, the latter can even be connected parallel to other audio sources (USB and mini jack), making it possible to place calls via CAGE. The control elements were designed for intuitive use, especially the volume cylinder. And thanks to a symmetrical construction, righties as well as lefties should be happy with it.”

    "The sound is very balanced and brings across good detail, such as the location of opponents. But music and movies also sound good, if perhaps the bass could have been brought more to the forefront in our opinion. [...] On the whole, the € 150 (suggested retail price) is justified, since the quality, feel and sound correspond with a higher price class."

    "With a PC, Teufel delivers an absolutely masterful performance here. When it comes to sound, you’ll be hard-pressed to find something better in this price class. Thanks to an integrated sound card, the treble as well as the bass are very well reproduced. EDM and Drum ‘n’ Bass fans will be pleased. With a variety of games such as "Counterstrike: Global Offensive", you can expect a fantastic spatial depth that leaves nothing to be desired.

    The headset’s ability to expertly block background noise really got our attention: During an event, dozens of chattering journalists were unable to disrupt my gaming flow. The integrated but removeable microphone that can be attached to either side is also a strong feature. The sound arrived crisp and clear on the other end, noise and background sounds are blended out. Whoever is looking for a new pair of headphones plus mic setup will be happy with the CAGE. This is how it’s done!”

    "Teufel’s CAGE unites many good ideas with high quality and an average suitability for daily use. Whoever’s looking for headphones that are precisely designed to deliver a perfected gaming experience will be happy with CAGE and will pay a decent sum of money for a very good gaming headset.”

Starting today, you can pre-order the CAGE for the promotional price of € 149.99 and receive something for comparatively little money that will certainly not be found again in this price class. The sound and the workmanship are at a Teufel level, which is to say top. The technology employed and the ideas expressed in the design -- like the interchangeable microphone, the multifunctional button and the many use possibilities -- are super. The included fabric-covered USB cable is a full three meters long for crossing even larger distances between PCs/PlaySations and ears. In a word, CAGE impressed us across the board. This is a gaming headset where you can’t go wrong and with which you’ll have a lot of fun after the purchase.”

For this price is the Cage 2019, is for a gaming headset with virtual 7.1 surround sound and integrated sound card. Very good sound, no matter if you are playing games or music, you can get even more out of the clever features. Even if there are a few features, the setting is from Teufel Audio Center (TAC). Besides the volume setting also: Equalizer that switches on all the various presets and can be adjusted visually. Xear Surround Sound for virtual 7.1 to activate, but unfortunately two modifications settings "music and film" where you have to choose between three settings of room sizes, which influence the sound hard has which is better. Xear Dynamic Bass is a perfect setting only for certain games or music streaming sites, is rare The problem is that no matter how you adjust the settings, you can hardly hear any bass. But as I said before, this is rarely the case. But on the other hand, there are a few things that make these headphones the perfect choice. Hopefully with cage 2020 you can fine-tune every single feature, because for those who also use it for music production like I use it for the fl 12 I would like to have some more fine tuning for... I hope it will be possible in 2020, because then you will have the best headphones you can get for the price, whether for gamers, music lovers or movies like to watch over 7.1, only system can not afford... You don't have to say much about design, because Teufel stands not only for sound quality but also for design. You don't have to say much more, otherwise I'll write a lot of things I would have liked if you could have set the logo not only in red but maybe some rgb individually...

Good headphones
i'm really excited about my new headphones, the sound is really great and the noise-canceling properties of the headphones are absolutely outstanding. i had to struggle a bit with my system during setup and software installation, but that was done within ten minutes. as the only small suggestion for improvement in the future, i would recommend a different upper material for the ear pads. unfortunately i have had bad experiences with earpads with imitation leather cover in the past. After a while the coating simply peels off and you have these small snippets sticking all over your skin. If you would replace the material of the pads with suede, this would not prevent the wearing comfort and the fuzz, but would also lead to less sweating under the ear pads. In the future I will simply replace the ear pads myself, otherwise full recommendation from me for the headphones.
