Overview of our technologies
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.
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.
All buttons and controls on the CAGE were designed to be easily navigated by touch:
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.

"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."

"[…] 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."

"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."

"A powerful 40mm driver hides beneath each of the changeable ear pads. This ensure a pleasantly high-resolution and balanced sound - the Cage is not a bass bomber, but certainly delivers a smooth and punchy bassline"
"Connected to the USB, the integrated C-Media chip and sound card provides useful features, including microphone enhancements, virtual surround, bass boost, and sound equalizer."
"The Cage proves itself with very good sound, high-quality interior and exterior design, ingenious and sophisticated finish, clean processing as well as flexible application possibilities - just great!"

"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.”
Translated from German.
"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."

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.”

"With CAGE, Teufel fulfilled all of our hope and dreams. For this reason, we see no reason to deny the gaming headset our highest test rating. From the design to the sound and range of features, CAGE is unique in its price class. So we’d like to celebrate a first right here and now: CAGE is the first hardware product to receive our highest test rating.”

Downloads & support
Solution: Uninstall the existing driver, then download and install the latest driver, whilst the CAGE is connected and all other background programmes are closed (these can be reactivated later): https://www.teufelaudio.com/software-update-cage.html
