Roccat Kave XTD 5.1 Digital Headset Has Soundcard Built-in

Kave XTD 5.1 Analog

The Kave XTD 5.1 Analog is the successor to original Kave 5.1. Made for gamers with a 5.1 soundcard already built into their PCs, the Kave XTD 5.1 Analog features classic 5.1 audio jacks plus a USB connector to power up the in-cable remote and the LED lighting. The headset features unique Zero Noise technology thanks to the interference isolator built into its dual-mode in-cable remote. The remote can be used either as a desktop or clip-on remote. The overall comfort should be improved as well, with the weight impressively reduced by 25 percent.

Kave XTD Stereo

 

The Kave XTD Stereo offers the same build and design but with two powerful driver units. The detachable noise-cancelling microphone includes features like the mute LED found in the original Kave 5.1.

Kave XTD 5.1 Digital

The flagship of the entire line will be the Kave XTD 5.1 Digital, which features a built-in premium 5.1 soundcard, a "world's first" headset-to-smartphone Bluetooth pairing and full audio controls with the comprehensive desktop remote.

 

Stay tuned for more from Roccat at CES.

  • I received today a Roccat Kave 5.1 and they look pretty much like these. It comes with just the controller, so feeds off my computer's soundcard (which is what I want) and have very good sound quality, considering it's a 5.1 headset. For gaming, however, it's really awesome and I recommend, specially considering the price.

    What I'm not happy about is the head padding, you know, the band over the head. It's too hard, and these XTD don't seem to be any better. The top of my head hurts after a while... I'll have to add to that padding with a bit of memory foam...

  • Gaming headsets just aren't good things. Get legitimate headphones and a separate mic.
