Roccat launching a slew of gaming accessories at CES

German gaming accessory manufacturer Roccat will be unveiling new mice, keyboards, headsets and mouse surfaces at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week.


Roccat is ensuring that no one misses the manufacturer’s stall at CES by launching a blitz of new products. In the headset category, Roccat is launching three new models in the Kave XTD series.


The Kave XTD 5.1 Analog is the successor the Kave 5.1 Analog, and is lighter and more comfortable to wear during extended gaming sessions.  It requires users to have a 5.1 channel soundcard installed on their machines, as it comes with a 5.1 audio connector. In addition to the 5.1 audio jack, the headset comes with a USB connector that is used by the remote and LED lights.The Kave XTD 5.1 Analog features Zero Noise technology that is achieved by use of an interference isolator that is built into the dual-mode in-cable remote.


The Kave XTD Stereo is similar to the design of the Kave XTD 5.1 Analog, but features two driver units.


The Kave XTD 5.1 Digital is the high-end offering of the lot, and comes with a 5.1 soundcard built-in. This headset also features the world’s first headset-to-mobile Bluetooth pairing functionality. The remote included with the headset comes with full audio controls.


Coming over to mice, Roccat is launching the Kone XTD Optical that comes with an adjustable distance control unit. The mouse features a 6,400dpi sensor along with a tracking and distance control unit (TDCU). This TDCU unit is used to customize lift-off distance. The mouse also contains standard Roccat features like Omron switches, a 4D Titan Wheel, Easy-Aim and ROCCAT Talk.


In addition to the Kone XTD Optical, Roccat is launching the Kone Pure Military mouse. It comes with a 5,000dpi and a TDCU unit, and will be available in three color variations: Desert Strike, Naval Storm and Camo Charge. Roccat has announced that it will bring a Kave XTD 5.1 Analog variant as well as a mouse surface featuring the same color variation that can be bought as a bundle.


Two new mechanical ten key less keyboard versions are also on offer. The Ryos TKL Pro features individual key illumination, a cutting-edge MCU, and will come in four different switch colors. The keyboard is said to feature a unique illumination effect called “breathing.” The Ryos TKL has similar features, but does not include the backlighting.
