Roccat Kave XTD 5.1 Headset Packs 5.1 Soundcard Inside

Looking for a new set of headphones? Roccat may have what you're looking for in the Kave XTD 5.1 Digital gaming headset. This new model builds upon the original Kave, bringing improved features and adding even more "impressive innovations."

This new headset ships with its own desktop remote packing a premium 5.1 sound card inside. The remote also includes the company's Smart Link patented technology that lets users pair their smartphone via Bluetooth so that they don't miss a call while gaming.

"Roccat Smart Link technology eradicates the problem of overlapping conversations during gaming sessions caused by talking on the phone with the headset still on," explains the company's announcement. "The patented technology automatically mutes the chat software when a call is picked up, giving you complete privacy and preventing you from disturbing your teammates."

The desktop remote includes headset and system audio controls, and 5.1 speaker ports. Thus users can connect the device to their existing speaker system and easily toggle between the system and headset. That definitely saves time and a lot of rewiring aggravation.

According to the company, the new headset packs three individual drivers per ear cup, aligned at a 12-degree angle. The headset also weighs 25 percent less than the original modes thanks to a completely redesigned head band. The microphone is redesigned to be detachable, and features improved sound quality and reliability.

The new Kave XTD 5.1 promises to be suitable for extended hours of gaming thanks to new materials that enhance the comfort and durability. Customers can purchase the new headset now for $169.99.
