Roccat Khan Pro
The Roccat Khan Pro is by far the lightest model in the test. The oval earcups have very pleasant ear cushions, and go completely over the ears, but only just. It reminds us a little bit of the famous Bose headphones, popular among frequent travelers. That is not a bad first impression. The low weight does mean a relatively high plastic content, however, and the headband shouldn't be completely turned over - then components will break. However, the cable connections are high quality and the Khan is more than sturdy enough. This is to be expected, because it costs just short of 122 dollars, and that is without a separate USB sound card.
Because of the low weight and good fit, there is nothing wrong with comfort, the Khan Pro can be easily worn for a long time. What is annoying, however, is that movements of the (2.5 m long) braided cord resonate in the left ear cup, which is a downside. There is a volume control in the ear cup, and folding up the boom microphone works like mute, with an audible click.
When listening, the high volume initially stands out, caused by the relatively low impedance. The reproduction is remarkably bright despite the closed design of the headphones. The bass is clearly present, but also beautifully sleek and certainly not exaggerated. The highs fall away a little bit, so that effects in high frequencies are under-exposed in games. Looking at our measurements, we can see a confirmation of what we already suspected when listening: the Khan has virtually no harmonic distortion and that means that all frequencies really sound like they should sound, without any buzz. The microphone does not detect any noise at all, but voices are relatively dull.
