Hearing high quality audio is never the same once you experience it with a good headset. It’s one of those things that you don’t understand how much of a difference it makes until you try it and think “How have I managed without this until now?”. It was with the Roccat Khan Pro headset that I experienced one of these moments and knew I could never go back.
The Roccat Khan Pro headset is designed for ‘epic moments’ and aimed at the esports market with the tagline of ‘Raise Your Level’. The notion of wearing them should make you feel in the zone and ready for whatever challenge you might face next and though I didn’t see my win rate go up, my enjoyment skyrocketed. From the moment I unboxed them to many hours later I still find myself amazed at how good the headset holds up while its audio output and noise cancellation continues to astound.
The first thing you will notice with the Roccat Khan Pro headset is just how solid and light the headset feels. Coming in at only 230g in weight you might think it is lacking in build quality but thankfully the headset is solid and flexible, complete with hardened hinges and feels as though it can handle a beating or two. I can also confirm that it will survive a number of drops without taking even a dent or scratch which ensures it will withstand even the most heated of rage quits.
This is accompanied by leatherette memory foam earpads ensuring you not only have a solid and light headset but also one that is super comfortable even after hours of use. One benefit to this - though only to those with glasses - is that the design and lightweight nature of the Roccat Khan Pro means you don’t feel much pressure on your glasses. Other headsets can put pressure on the wearer’s glasses resulting in a need for regular breaks. The Roccat Khan Pro does not suffer from this issue and even after a long period of use is still comfortable to wear and enjoy.
Even right out of the box the sound quality is impressive and a noticeable difference over other headsets and in-ear headphones, include Apple’s own earbuds. After testing them with a number of games, films and different genres of music, across multiple devices, it is easy to acknowledge how good the sound quality of this headset is. With dynamic, high resolution audio that allows you to hear even the most subtle of noises, there is a rich range of sounds to enjoy. When playing a game such as Destiny 2 for example, you are able to notice the sounds of the ground under your feet, the tap of metal when reloading and even the rain pattering against the ground and your helmet.
Once more the headset comes complete with an adjustable microphone that features an auto mute function when raised to an upright position. This small but reliable microphone means that you are able to communicate with your team with crystal clear audio that ensures a natural sound is delivered. Even when used outside of gaming the microphone is a robust stand-in when recording audio for other uses such as podcasts. Not only that but it is compatible with consoles, computers and mobile and is equipped with two 3.5mm jacks (Input and output) with an included adapter to allow for both input and output through one connector.
Whether you are sitting down to play a few hours of your favorite game or listen to some 80’s jams as you work, the Roccat Khan Pro is a headset that is suitable for the job and will deliver above your expectations. With a robust build quality and rich, high resolution audio like you have never heard before, this is a headset definitely worth checking out. The only real downside is that the microphone is not detachable which means it won’t replace many out-and-about headphones. Regardless, that is a tiny negative in an otherwise flawless and impressive product. The Roccat Khan Pro is a highly recommend headset.
