Roccat Kave XTD

Sorry Console gamers this on is only for the hardcore PC addicts.

Introducing the Roccat Kave XTD

Sound cards in gaming PCs, save for serious audiophiles and have largely been rendered irrelevant by motherboards with more than passable sound chips. Ailing bassheads could just try and cram a sound card into their gaming rigs, but German peripheral peddler Roccat has another idea. This is the Kave XTD gaming headset, with 5.1 digital surround sound and its very own sound card enabling a swath of fun features.

For those who follow Roccat, the Kave XTD is the successor to the company’s $129 Kave 5.1. The difference here is a.) The price: $169 (about £101, AU$188), b.) Its sedentary design and c.) Its feature set.

[Apologies for American prices but retail prices should be about R2000]

Where the original Kave 5.1 was focused on a fusion of portability and features, the XTD is all about offering as many relevant features as possible in a similar package, committing to a desktop-first design. However, that comes with some compromises that might not fly for more mobile-minded gamers.
