Dr. Erik J. Dale, ROCCAT Scientist
Real 5.1 Sound
Three driver units per earcup aligned at a 12° angle.
Full 5.1 Surround Sound
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.
Game and Movie Mode
Toggle between game and movie modes.
Bluetooth® Pairing
Lets you make and receive calls without leaving the action.
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? 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.
Bluetooth® Pairing
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.
Desktop Remote
Total control over your audio settings at your fingertips.
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. Teaming up with the remote, the headset mic tip has an Mute-LED that lights up when you hit the mute button, letting you keep your eyes locked on your target rather than fumbling with your settings.
Robust Design
Built to last with a light yet durable design.
Supreme Comfort
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.
