While the debate over mechanical switches and the like seems to endlessly churn over, and while folks have been refining the weight and tracking of gaming mice for some time, the clicks though? I don't seem to remember much scuttlebutt about the click on gaming mice. Well it appears Roccat is here to get folks talking again. Coinciding with E3 2019, comes the announcement for the Kain series of gaming mice. I'll let the press release tell the story:
"Born from the vision of creating a PC gaming mouse with the best "click" and aimed to deliver maximum precision performance, the Kain series mice introduce the Titan Click– a new click-mechanism engineered to unlock accurate and responsive controls. Titan Click is a unison of innovative hardware design supported by software that combine to create a better, faster, more responsive, and great-feeling "click." This faster and more precise click comes from an exclusive variant of Omron switches and software that registers the click signal up to 16 milliseconds faster than any other mice, giving the Kain a speed advantage and letting players stay one click ahead of the competition."
The Kain line comes in three flavors: the Kain 100 AIMO comes in the most budget friendly at $49.99, the 120 is $69.99, and the wireless Kain 200 AIMO is $99.99. The first two in the lineup are set to release in September with the wireless variety some time in the fall.
In addition to the new mice Turtle Beach is also debuting their latest headset, the Recon Spark. The Reason Spark is a bit of a budget headset, coming in at a MSRP of just $49.99 and available to be paired with an Xbox One, PS4, Switch, or Mobile device with the 3.5mm jack or PC with the splitter.
