ROCCAT™ Studios, German manufacturer of high-quality gaming peripherals, announces the availability of the Kave XTD 5.1 Digital gaming headset, the flagship version of the new Kave XTD series. The Kave XTD 5.1 builds upon the foundations laid by the original Kave headset, improving existing features and adding even more impressive innovations to refine the tried and tested feature set that made the original model a worldwide success among gamers.

Smart improvements for smart gamers

The Kave XTD 5.1 Digital includes a fully-equipped desktop remote with a built-in premium 5.1 sound card. Also included in the feature-packed remote is ROCCAT Smart Link, a patented technology that lets users pair their smartphone to the remote via Bluetooth, allowing them to make and receive calls through the headset 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.  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 Kave XTD 5.1 desktop remote comes with comprehensive headset and system audio controls and boasts 5.1 speaker ports, letting users connect to their existing speaker system, easily toggle between headset and speaker output and eliminating the need to crawl under the table to re-plug audio cables.

Supreme surround sound and comfy build

Like the original Kave, the Kave XTD 5.1 Digital delivers true, rich 5.1 surround sound.  However, the new Kave XTD 5.1 also features three individual drivers per ear cup aligned at a 12-degree angle for incomparably immersive and crisp sound, comes with a completely redesigned head band for superior comfort and weighs 25% less than the original model.

The Kave XTD 5.1 Digital is also engineered and manufactured using new materials to enhance its comfort and durability, making it suitable for extended hours of gaming.  The detachable microphone will also come with a mute LED indicator, but has also been redesigned to improve sound quality and reliability.

The Kave XTD 5.1 Digital was nominated for the “Best Hardware” award at gamescom 2013 and is now available for USD $169.99.
