On the 6 February, ROCCAT released their new Khan AIMO 7.1 gaming headset, a high-end product featuring RGB lighting, a comfortable design and a built-in sound card. With the AIMO illumination series, the premium headset is supposed to be a huge step up from the critically acclaimed analogue Khan Pro. It has been a while since the last release of a digital surround-sound gaming headset from ROCCAT.
The Kave XTD 5.1 that was released in 2014 actually had multiple speakers, two on each ear and four in total but multi-channel headsets don’t usually contain multiple speakers. Headsets like that receive multichannel analogue input which is downmixed internally, however, the Khan AIMO re-processes the multichannel sound with an internal sound card.
The Khan AIMO includes an integrated sound card capable of providing clear sound up to 24-bit at 96KHz. When paired with the high-end driver units, it offers amazing virtual 7.1 surround sound, giving you the edge to winning games. If wanted, the virtual surround sound can be disabled by users since the Khan AIMO functions as an excellent stereo headset as well. Tough materials like the stainless-steel sliders ensure durability and a long lifespan yet it is also exceptionally light at only 275 grams. Earcups out of memory foam with soft headband padding, it is perfectly comfortable for extended gaming sessions with your teammates.
