Introduction:

Today we will be looking at the reinvention of the ROCCAT Kave XTD gaming headset and if its quality as anything like the previous version, then I have no doubt this one will be well worth the money. This headset is a complete redesign from the bottom up while keeping certain aspects of the previous model the same. Some of those features that stayed are the detachable mic, the thick sturdy cord, the inline control unit, status LEDs and real 5.1 surround sound. What’s different? Just about everything else, including the design of the control unit inside and out.

Here are some photos of the un-boxing and the product in more detail.
