ROCCAT has just announced the incorporation of the new Kone XP gaming mouse, the culmination of 15 years that dares to stand up to all its predecessors in every way, with ergonomics improved in a way meticulous and innovative 3D RGB lighting, along with a 19,000 DPI optical sensor, new and faster switches, and a huge number of assignable buttons make it one of the most customizable and configurable PC gaming mice on the market.
Differing from other products in its family such as the Kone Pro Air, the Kone XP’s multi-button design is combined with polished ergonomics, reduced weight and all the comfort of the characteristic silhouette of the Kone of ROCCAT. This brand once again redefines RGB lighting with up to 22 Kone XP LED lights, its transparent case and the revolutionary 4D Krystal Wheel that diffuses RGB lighting through a transparent design smoked to create a 3D lighting effect. The 4D Krystal Wheel also adds left and right side inputs for the standard vertical click and scroll function, all accompanied by ROCCAT’s signature tactile feel.
The Kone XP has more buttons than any other mouse in its price class. It has 15 buttons and, thanks to the Easy-Shift technology, there are 29 possible button functions, something ideal for strategy games and MMOs such as the recently released Lost Ark or the recently released Elden Ring. On the other hand, it also highlights its ROCCAT Titan optical switch, faster than any mechanical switch and lasts twice as long, with an actuation speed of an impressive 0.2 milliseconds that offers an adjustable bounce time .
At the heart of the Kone XP PC gamers will find the 19,000 DPI Owl-Eye optical sensor (based on PixArt’s PAW3370). The Owl-Eye sensor monitors all mouse movements with the utmost accuracy for extreme precision during gaming sessions and is customizable through ROCCAT’s Swarn software suite.
The Kone XP’s translucent casing is the best setting to display ROCCAT’s AIMO lighting engine and its ecosystem; it can be synchronized with other ROCCAT AIMO compatible products such as the Magma membrane keyboard or the award-winning Vulcans. AIMO produces vibrantly lit displays in 16.8 million colors right out of the box, without the need for complicated setup.
The Kone XP also includes ROCCAT’s PhantomFlex cable and its heat-treated PTFE pads to convey the same feeling of freedom of movement as a wireless mouse, with a flexible, malleable and lightweight cable and no snagging or tangling, and a base that glides smoothly across any mat or desk.
