ROCCAT(TM) Kulo - Virtual 7.1 USB Gaming Headset

Hamburg, (PresseBox) - ROCCAT(TM) , the Hamburg-based manufacturer of gaming peripherals, presents the Kulo1 Virtual 7.1 USB Gaming Headset, the second version of the Kulo Stereo Gaming Headset, featuring a 7.1 USB sound card. The ultra-lightweight Kulo headset features super-soft on-ear padding and the Automatic Mic-Mute function, and delivers thrilling surround sound with separately adjustable levels when used in conjunction with the 7.1 USB sound card. You hear footsteps behind you to the left, a rustle, shouts - you'll hear the enemy before you see him. The 7.1 USB sound card comes in really handy even with notebooks that only offer mediocre sound quality. In addition, when a speaker system is connected in parallel there's no need to go through the hassle of plugging and unplugging cables - plus the headset delivers the same premium sound quality regardless of which computer the headset is plugged in to.


The super-soft on-ear padding combined with the padded headband offer maximum comfort even after hours of gaming. The Kulo also delivers effective noise cancellation, allowing gamers to focus fully on the game. In addition, the special design boosts sound without any loss, producing gutsy audio and a very wide sound spectrum even for an ultra lightweight, compact headset like this.


High quality 40mm drivers with neodymium magnets and Mylar® membranes are the last word in headset technology, delivering premium sound quality. Specifically designed to meet the needs of ambitious gamers, the sound has been optimized for gaming, music and voice chat. Connect the ROCCAT(TM) Kulo to the 7.1 USB sound card, install the driver, and the stereo audio transforms into fully-fledged virtual surround sound. Use the equalizer to adjust each sound channel separately, and the preconfigured profiles to conveniently adjust the sound effect.


With its Automatic Mic-Mute function, ROCCAT(TM) presents an easy way to mute the mic. Fold the microphone arm up and the mic is muted - fold it down and you're good to chat. It doesn't get any easier than that - and it's precisely this simplicity that'll really come in handy while gaming. The noise-filtering microphone itself offers noise-free communications when gaming or voice chatting.


The ROCCAT(TM) Kulo is ultra lightweight, weighing in at just 178g, plus it's flexible and extremely robust thanks to its metal-reinforced headband which offers eight levels of height adjustment for the perfect fit. What's more, the microphone is flexible for easy positioning. Even the volume level can be controlled using the ultra-lightweight in-line Slim Remote Control - with no added weight tugging on the cable, longer gaming sessions remain free from annoyance.

The ROCCAT(TM) Kulo Virtual 7.1 USB Gaming Headset will be available from the start of May 2011 for the MSRP of €79.99.
