Roccat Kone EMP Gaming Mouse Review

Roccat Kone EMP

Roccat has long been one of the leading brands in the gaming peripherals market. I’ve been a long time fan of their products, having used the Kone XTD for many years, and more recently the Roccat Tyon gaming mouse for my general day to day work and gaming. I generally favour their gaming mice, as they’re a little larger than most brands and better fit my hand. The Kone EMP is the latest evolution of the Kone gaming mouse. For those familiar with the original, the overall design should look about the same, but the inner workings of the mouse have been upgraded to bring them up to speed with the ever-changing gaming market.

Faster and Lighter

The main improvements in their latest gaming mouse are the new sensor, as well as a reduction in weight. This means the mouse is going to feel more nimble while you’re using it and it’s going to track better, while delivering a much wider DPI range than before. While that may not sound like a huge change from the original mouse, it’s a welcome upgrade for anyone who is familiar with the old product.

Of course, you’re still going to be getting all the features you would expect from a high end Roccat gaming mouse. It comes equipped with Roccat Talk FX, offering customisable RGB LED lighting. A right-hand ergonomic design, easy shift+ technology, Roccat Swarm software suite, an ARM CORTEX-M0 50MHZ processor, distance control unit, 4D titan wheel, onboard memory, and more.

What Roccat Had to Say

“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.” – Roccat

What’s in the Box

In the box, you will find the mouse which comes hard-wired with a braided USB cable. Other than that you’ll find some simple documentation and not really any extras. Of course, you don’t really need much else everything is set up and ready to plug and play. So, let’s get this setup and see what else it has to offer.
