ROCCAT Kave XTD 5.1 Digital USB Gaming Headset

We have just posted up our review of the ROCCAT Kave XTD 5.1 Digital USB Gaming Headset. This headset builds off the original Kave Headset and ROCCAT has really stepped up their game with the XTD. There are many improvements on this headset and the audio quality is really, really good. If you're looking for something that will give you an edge in your game, make music and movies more enjoyable and even make you more attractive, check out our review. They may deliver on a few of these claims.

As mentioned earlier in this review, the most important part about this new in-line control unit is the fact that it has a built-in 5.1 sound card. The quality of sound that comes from this card is amazing. The first time I used this headset, I was blown away. Not only was I surprised at the sound quality from a USB headset, but I was floored at how far better it was than what I currently had (an analog headset).

Thermaltake @ CES 2013

We had the opportunity to stop by Thermaltake today and check out their new products for 2013. Thermaltake has a full lineup of keyboards, mice, power supplies, headphones, and more that they were showing off.

We took a look at Thermaltake’s Tt esports keyboards which featured their MEKA keyboards which are mechanical keyboards built with gamers in mind.

ROCCAT @ CES 2014

We met up with ROCCAT to take a look at some of their new offerings for this upcoming year here at CES 2014. 


ROCCAT has a new line of headsets, the Kave, which has a couple different versions (an analog version and a digital 5.1 surround version). We didn't get much of a chance to demo these too in-depth but given ROCCAT's track record we are looking forward to getting them onto the BCCHardware test bench for some more testing.

ROCCAT was also showing off their lineup of keyboards which is highlighted by the Ryos mechanical keyboards. The Ryos keyboards aren't new but they have introduced a new smaller version of the Ryos dubbed the Ryos TKL which is the same keyboard minus the number pad to make it fit into tighter desk configurations where a full keyboard might not work.

Gaming High

Have you ever wished that you were able to have the experience the joy of gaming on Mount Everest? Me neither. If you are the lucky winner of a contest put out by the makers of Far Cry4, you will be doing just that. Should you win this competition, you will be going to Everest and playing FC4 there on a special piece of equipment made to withstand the harsh environment. This was all announced at comic con this year. Good luck to all who enter!

During a Far Cry 4 panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con event, the developers announced an interesting contest: one person will get the chance to play Far Cry on Mount Everest. The winner will use a specialized (but unspecified) piece of gaming hardware that both allows for playing on the go while also standing up to the harsh weather conditions of the icy mountains.
