Product on Review: ROCCAT Khan AIMO
Street Price: £119.99 / $119.99 / AUS $149
The Khan AIMO looks to be making a splash in the market by taking all the best parts from last years Khan Pro and adding in some high-end audio features as well as integrating some tasteful RGB illumination.
The Khan AIMO builds upon the Pro by modernising the aesthetics, improving the build quality, upgrading the audio feature set and adding the AIMO intelligent lighting system. The Khan AIMO does borrow the Hi-Res audio capabilities from the older sibling but now includes 7.1 audio. As well as this, ROCCAT has enhanced the audio with a built-in 24-bit 96kHz DAC sound card. A vast frequency range is on offer too as the Khan AIMO can delve all the way down to 10Hz and extend all the way up to 40,000Hz.
This is an impressive feature set to say the least, but how do they perform in the real world?
ROCCAT on the Khan AIMO:
The Khan AIMO represents a gaming first with its exclusive Hi-Res audio compatible surround sound. Adding a top-end virtual 7.1 headset to the AIMO series, it boasts a premium hardware spec with its powerful driver units and built-in high fidelity sound card. As impressive structurally as it is in terms of performance, the Khan AIMO’s stainless steel sliders provide incredible robustness yet with remarkably low weight at only 275 grams. Together with its memory foam earpads, this makes it a headset suitable for use over extended periods of time. The Khan AIMO is comfort. Surrounded.
