The Pro Air is the first wireless mouse of ROCCAT's Kone line. It combines this series' Bionic Shell design and Titan optical switches with cable-free use, thanks to a battery that can fast-charge via USB type C. For those that prefer to stick with wires, however, it has a new Pro sibling with PhantomFlex technology and otherwise identical gaming-focused specs.

Turtle Beach's premium gaming brand ROCCAT has just launched the Kone Pro, a new gaming mouse that is touted to "perfect" the form-factor for which its series is named. Its maker has outfitted it with its "Owl-Eye" optical sensor rated for a 19K DPI sensitivity.

It is delivered via a PhantomFlex cable, through which impulses from its "Titan" optical switches and Wheel Pro, the latter of which is crafted from aluminium for enhanced precision and immersion. The Kone Pro is also equipped with PTFE glides that are heat-treated and "pre-tuned for a smoother motion".

The Kone Pro also benefits from ROCCAT's AIMO RGB system, which shines through the mouse's honeycomb-patterned, protective Bionic Shell. All of these specs also apply to this mouse's completely new Air variant, the first mouse of its "iconic" design to go wireless.

It does so thanks to the brand's Stellar Wireless standard, which means it combines "reliable" 2.4GHz Wi-Fi with its more expected Bluetooth connectivity. Its Bionic Shell ensures it weighs only 75 grams (g, whereas the Pro is 66g), even though its battery is rated to deliver 100 hours or more of use between charges.

The Kone Pro Air does this via a USB type C cable that is also PhantomFlex. ROCCAT was not clear on whether the two can confer a wired mode on the peripheral or not, although it does indicate that the user can charge and game at the same time. This should not take too long either, as the brand asserts that the new mouse gains 5 hours worth of use within 10 minutes of plugging it in.

ROCCAT is confident that the Kone Pro and Pro Air are thus suited to gamers who favor either claw, fingertip or palm grip-types. Both new models are available from the OEM's webstore from now, and cost US$80 and $130 respectively.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
