ROCCAT, a global leader in the ever-changing and exciting realm of PC gaming peripherals, has released some new swag for your gaming gear.

Our mission: to take the most successful surround sound gaming headset ever created and rebuild it from the ground up, adding game-changing innovations and performance-improving refinements. Mission accomplished. The next generation Kave XTD 5.1 Digital is a legend in the making, with remastered real 5.1 surround sound, enhanced comfort and an upgraded, robust design. What sets the Kave XTD 5.1 Digital miles apart and leaves its rivals in the dust is its feature-packed desktop remote, which works as an audio command center. Containing ROCCAT-pioneered smartphone to headset Bluetooth pairing, a premium-quality, multi-channel integrated sound card, comprehensive audio controls and heaps more, the desktop remote complements the headset perfectly to provide a gaming audio solution of unprecedented quality and innovation  – leaving NO SOUND UNHEARD.

REAL 5.1 SURROUND SOUND
Nobody does it like ROCCAT. With two 40mm driver units and one 30mm vibration unit per ear cup, a fully immersive, genuine surround sound experience with pitch-perfect crisp and clear audio is ensured. The Kave XTD 5.1 Digital’s three high-end driver units are aligned precisely at a 12° angle, matching the natural form of your ear. This alignment provides a real – not virtual – 5.1 surround environment in which you can pinpoint enemy locations easily, giving you the edge over your opponents.

FULLY-EQUIPPED REMOTE
With an inbuilt multi-channel sound card, the Kave XTD 5.1 Digital remote gives you total control at your fingertips. It allows you to pair your smartphone to your headset via Bluetooth, so you can call your friends without leaving the action. Whether you’re playing a game or watching a flick, the game/movie mode toggle provides enhanced audio. Complete with 5.1 speaker ports, you can switch between speaker and headset outputs seamlessly. Complemented by mute and master volume controls, the LED illumination gives an overview of your sound levels.

ROCCAT™ SMART LINK®
You’re in-game and your phone starts ringing right at that crucial moment. You can’t pause an online game so you either stop playing or ignore the call, right? Wrong! The Kave XTD 5.1 Digital features Smart Link®, a ROCCAT™ innovation that lets you pair your smartphone to the remote so you can make and receive calls through the headset – without leaving the action. The Bluetooth-facilitated technology means you can keep on fragging and let the other person on the other end of the phone line know all about it.

INBUILT MULTI-CHANNEL SOUND CARD
Complete with a multi-channel sound card built in to the desktop remote, interference and distraction-free surround sound audio is delivered. The benefit of having the multi-channel sound card built in to the remote is that it avoids the problem common to setups with on-board audio, whereby signal noise or interference can be heard through the headset. With its feature-rich driver and premium inbuilt sound card, the Kave XTD 5.1 Digital ensures you hear only what you’re supposed to hear – your game sounds – so the pitter patter of footsteps you’re listening out for isn’t drowned out by untimely noise.

COMFORTABLE AND ROBUST DESIGN
Robust, ultra light, and with comfortable headband and ear cup padding, this is a headset that is built to last and suitable for hardcore gaming sessions.  Weighing in at 335g, the Kave XTD 5.1 Digital is extremely low in weight. This, coupled with a soft, ergonomic headband cushion and high-comfort leatherette ear cushions, provides a headset that can be worn for extended periods without causing discomfort. In spite of its low weight, the Kave XTD 5.1 Digital is also remarkably robust and durable, meaning its battle-proof design is ideal for hardcore gamers.
