The best Roccat Gaming Mice
Roccat, a hardware manufacturer founded by René Korte in 2007, produces gaming hardware such as gaming mice, keyboards and headsets. The founder is a passionate gamer himself and therefore the company’s principle is “From gamers to gamers”. And you can feel it. Although the company is still very young, it was nominated for the German Founders’ Prize in the category “Achievers” due to its success in 2016. We would like to pay tribute to this success and that’s why we are going to present you the best and most popular gaming mice by Roccat.
The Roccat Gaming Mouse Comparison The best gaming mice by Roccat
ROCCAT Kone AIMO The gaming mouse with configurable lighting zones
If you look at this gaming mouse by Roccat, you can immediately see that it is the work of passionate gamers. It has an Optical Sensor called “Owl-Eye” with up to 12,000 DPI and a durability of 50 million clicks per key. In this way, the gaming mouse can even compete with industry giants such as Razer’s DeathAdder Elite.
The specific gaming features are also absolutely unique: With the Easy-Shift technology, Roccat has developed a system that lets you assign two different functions to each mouse button. A toggle key is used to switch back and forth between the two key assignments.
Other extra features include RGBA lighting with several individually configurable zones and the synchronisation of lighting across several devices. That makes every gamer’s heart beat faster.
ROCCAT Kone EMP The Gaming Mouse with the 4D scroll wheel
The Kone EMP has similarly good values as the Kone AIMO described above: Up to 12,000 DPI and a durability of 50 million clicks per key. The lighting system of the Kone EMP has four LEDs which are configurable in 16.8 million different colours and many different effects.
Now let’s move on to the differences between the Kone EMP and the Kone AIMO: With the Pro-Grip surface, Roccat has made sure that you always have the best grip in hot fights. In our opinion, the strongest feature is the 4D “Titan” mouse wheel: The robustly built scroll wheel is equipped with a technology that allows movements in four different directions. We’ve never seen that in a gaming mouse before.
In our opinion, the Roccat Kone EMP has the better price-performance ratio. Definitely a top gaming mouse by Roccat!
Roccat Kova The perfect gaming mouse for MOBA gamers
With its 12 programmable buttons (doubling of key assignments possible with Easy-Shift), the Roccat Kova gaming mouse is especially suitable for MMO and MOBA gamers. With 7,000 DPI, it has the lowest resolution of the gaming mice presented here, which is another indication that it is less suitable for FPS players (which does not mean that it would be unsuitable in general).
With a price of about 50,00 € it is also the cheapest Roccat device that we will present in this article. The ambidextrous design of the Roccat Kova is suitable for both lefties and righties which makes it even more flexible.
With the Roccat Kova you get more for your money than with other mice in the same price range.
Roccat Tyon The Button Monster by Roccat
The last mouse on our list is the Roccat Tyon. It has 14 buttons and is a true feature monster. As with all Roccat mice, the number of buttons can be doubled with Easy-Shift, which makes 24 functions and macros in total.
The 8,200 DPI laser sensor ensures a high degree of accuracy, even though the number of DPI isn’t the highest. With four additional buttons on top and the X-Celerator analog thumb paddle this gaming mouse is ideal for complex games such as flight simulators, but MMOs and MOBAs are also no problem at all.
Roccat Tyon is also Test Winner in the category Gaming Mice and has won the Platinum Award. For us, this completes our very good overall impression. With 90 € this gaming mouse offers more than other gaming mice for the same price.
