The ROCCAT Kave XTD 5.1 Digital Surround Sound gaming headset is the latest headset offering from the innovative people at ROCCAT. The Kave XTD 5.1 promises to make huge advancements over its predecessor, the ROCCAT Kave 5.1 analog. The Kave XTD 5.1 Digital brings a USB interface, a speaker pass-through function, cellular Bluetooth connectivity, and a revamped in-line remote. In this article, Benchmark Reviews investigates.
The main attraction, for me at least, is the cellular Bluetooth functionality. This feature allows you to pair your Bluetooth phone with the headset and answer phone calls while gaming with the push of a button on the in-line remote. I’ll be testing the usefulness of this feature, as well as the ease of use and its real world pros and cons.
