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.

With the ROCCAT Kave XTD 5.1 Digital headset I’ll be testing how well the surround sound works, how functional the in-line remote is, sound quality, microphone quality, and overall durability of the headset. We’ll also take a look at the software that comes with the ROCCAT Kave XTD and how well it works in real world applications. The testing parameters include: music, video games. and movies.
