Roccat Set to Showcase a Slew of Gaming Peripherals at CES 2014
Roccat will be exhibiting an entire range of new gaming peripherals, including headsets, mice, and keyboards, at the CES 2014.
Two new Kave XTD gaming headsets will be introduced, to complete the German company's complete lineup of Kave XTD audio products. The Kave XTD 5.1 Analog (successor of the original Kave 5.1) is made for gamers with a 5.1 soundcard already built in their PCs. It features 5.1 audio jacks, a USB connector to power up the in-cable remote and LED lighting, and Zero Noise technology thanks to the interference isolator built into its dual-mode in-cable remote, which can be used either as a desktop or clip-on remote. Overall comfort and built quality has been enhanced, with the headset's weight reduced by 25%.
The Kave XTD Stereo sports the same build and design, and integrates two powerful driver units to deliver rich gaming sounds. Its detachable noise-canceling microphone also comes with a "mute" LED that the original Kave 5.1 offered.
The present Kone Series gaming mice boast multicolor lighting, sensor technology, and innovations such as the tracking and distance control unit (TDCU). Armed with a new 6,400dpi optical sensor, the Kone XTD Optical comes equipped with an adjustable distance control unit to customize lift-off distance, and the usual Omron switches, 4D Titan Wheel, Easy-Aim, and Roccat Talk.
For the smaller variant of the Kone Series, Roccat is presenting three new designs at CES 2014. Adopting a 5,000dpi optical sensor, the Kone Pure Military will be available in Desert Strike, Naval Storm, and Camo Charge. On top of that, Roccat will also launch the new Kave XTD 5.1 Analog and a mousepad available in the same design.
Roccat is also expanding its Ryos mechanical gaming keyboard series with two compact ten keyless versions - one with per-key illumination (Ryos TKL Pro), and one without backlighting (Ryos TKL). Both models will employ the Cherry MX Black keyswitches, and 32-bit ARM Cortex MCU processor which supports "breathing" illumination effects.
