ROCCAT® Kone EMP – Max Performance RGB Gaming Mouse
The Kone EMP is the successor to the Kone XTD – the high-powered weapon in your arsenal that’s built on strong foundations. It’s the mouse you can rely on every time and for every game. It takes the basics to perfection, doing everything you’d expect a gaming mouse to do – in an expert way. Engineered using only the highest quality components, its robustness matches its fully-fledged feature set. Boasting leading Owl-Eye optics, vivid illumination, a reduced weight of 116g, superior ergonomics for mid- to large-handed gamers and expanded button functionality, there can be no other. The Kone EMP is truly domination, empowered.
Owl-Eye translates your mouse movements on screen with 1:1 accuracy making it as responsive as it is consistent, for unrelenting pointer precision.
ROCCAT® Owl-Eye optical sensor
Owl-Eye is the exciting new optical sensor from PixArt, modified to the high and exacting standards of ROCCAT®. Taking its inspiration from the natural world, it boasts a real and responsive feeling that’s instantly recognizable. The sensor can be configured in terms of the ROCCAT®-pioneered Distance Control Unit (DCU), with the dpi adjustable in 100-dpi steps from 100 to 12000, although we recommend a 400 – 3000dpi range as optimal.
