MCV takes a look at the best accessories heading to UK retail. This week, we listen to Roccat’s new Analog headset and stash our Amiibo with Hori
Roccat Kave 5.1 Analog Headset
Hot on the heels of Roccat’s XTD 5.1 Digital headset comes its latest peripheral – the XTD 5.1 Analog.
The headset offers 5.1 surround sound at a hardware level, meaning that audio is clearer and more natural than software-driven surround sound.
‘Zero Noise’ technology is also featured, which utilises a dedicated interference isolator to eliminate unwanted audio.
The device boasts two 40mm driver units, plus one 30mm vibration unit, in each ear cup.
The three drivers are aligned at a precise 12-degree angle, which Roccat claims is the optimum position to match the form of the human ear.
A dual-mode remote is also included, which functions both as a wearable and desktop-mounted control.
It can beclipped onto clothes or mounted using the solid remote stand to provide users with a comfortable way to adjust their volume controls.
The tip of the headset’s microphone additionally illuminates when chat muting is enabled.
