The last drop the EMP was $50, Now its $60. WTF
Right after Cytek Cyborg's mices' usability, loads of buttons, functions and ergonomics, Roccat looks like their rightful heir! I have used R.A.T. 7 for five years until the right click sensor started sticking and it was not an easy choice to find a mouse that will be able to take it's place. The Roccat Tyon i now own is doing it's job excellently, it has more functionalities than a gamer needs, plus it is not overpriced as Razer or other. WP Roccat, you are really making a gamer happy again :-D
I wish this had the AIMO.
The Roccat Tyon, IMO is the greatest mouse ever made. I own two of them for both of my rigs. That being said, I would caution any potential buyers as ROCCAT no longer supports the Tyon. The last update was in Feb 2016. The only solution if anything happens is to RMA.

I only wish it was swarm compatible. I have another roccat mouse that's not swarm compatible and i hate having two different utilities to run for products from the same company.

Thanks. I didn’t know the Tyon was no longer supported. That sucks cause the style interested me. I have a Kone POE and love it, however I wanted few more buttons for MMOs.
I’m using a Naga Trinity now and really like it’s handiness, I use the Hex the most... but the rubber thumb rest really annoys my finger too after a while. It’s so weird that it does but it bothers me lol.
Just a warning to people, some of the shapes of these mice (specially the Kone line of mice) are very "curvy" and not very "safe" so to say. This means that you should try them out at a local Fry's or Best Buy if you can before buying. You will most likely either love or hate the shape. For more extensive info on choosing a good mouse for your hand, I suggest you head over to Rocket Jump Ninja's channel.
-$ 4 for the ROCCAT Kone Pure Owl Eye really massdrop? we can get it for $60 with international shipping either in bhphotovideo.com or maxgaming.com without the 1 month delay
indigouz
Wait for the price to go down when more people join the drop. Believe it or not, Massdrop needs ways to drop the prices on items. They're not made of money.
Why does their photo show all left handed mice?
MeesturDull
Actually none of them are left handed.
Just got my shipping confirmation. Can't wait to give this a try.
Are any of these left handed optional?

Razer has a left handed version of their DeathAdder mouse: https://www.razerzone.com/gaming-mice/razer-deathadder-left-hand-edition
That's the only gaming mouse I know of that's specifically for lefties.

You could try the gskill mx780. I bought it and really like it BUT it doesn't have a tilt wheel which is a necessity for me in gaming. I didn't realize that when I bought it. But you can use it with either hand and it has a variety of adjustments etc. not very expensive either. Good luck.
If anyone is having trouble getting their Roccat mouse to store the profiles that you're programming, try one or more of the following:
1) Make sure you update the firmware for the mouse first. 2) Run the Configurator as Administrator in Windows. 3) Set the program to run in compatibility mode. 4) If you're running windows in a virtual environment such as Parallels, make sure the device is assigned directly to the environment (instead of being shared). 5) Make sure the mouse is plugged in recognized by your computer before launching the configurator program.
I had a brutal time getting my Tyon to store its configuration at first. I did all of the above and I'm not sure which steps were instrumental in getting it to work.
I just got my Roccat Tyon today. I checked the serial number on the Roccat site here: https://www.roccat.org/en-US/Support/Authenticity-Check/
It failed the authenticity check. What's up with that?
UPDATE: They had some database problems.
hyperlinked
Ok, apparently, their serial number database was offline and all checks were coming back failed. I just checked and my serial number was valid... not that I had any serious doubts.
My current driver of choice is a Mionix Avior 7000 (also purchased via Massdrop). I've been intrigued by the button layout on a Tyon for quite some time so I'm going to spring for it.
My gaming days are behind me, but I still insist on a pretty slick high end gaming mouse. They make me more productive because I can remap hard to reach shortcuts over to my mouse hand so I don't spend as much time trying to reposition my hands or miss keystrokes. Everything from editing images in Photoshop to reviewing Excel spreadsheets, to managing a server on the command line of a terminal program is sped up by having extra controls that a well thought out mouse gives me... not to mention that my hands feel better for not having to contort to odd shapes to reach keys that are really hard to hit with only one hand. You younger dudes who don't think you'll ever deal with repetitive strain, be careful and take care of your hands. Don't make them work harder than they need to work. I'm not sure if a Tyon mouse is the ideal ergonomic input device for you and it could very well be that the Tyon isn't going to be right for me either, so this isn't a recommendation to get in on this drop if your hands hurt. You experiment and learn how your body responds to various tools. What's considered ideal ergonomics is different for everyone.

Sure, but the Elecom with a side trackball has a completely different shape, layout and less buttons: https://www.amazon.com/M-XT3DRBK-Wireless-Trackball-6-Button-Tracking/dp/B016QCPNUW/
I almost want to get the other Elecom just to see how it could be customized with the Steam Controller config tool.
CrashNBurn
Yeah, I think that gen 1 Elecom trackball mouse is going to be on my shopping list if my right hand ever gets bad again. That form factor really works for me when I get a flare up and when I have to use the Logitech Trackball Mouse I always find myself wanting just one more button. One more button plus a tilt wheel would be really nice.
After having every other mouse with excessive buttons, Corsair M90 , Naga, etc. And the Nyth is by far my favorite. The software isn't impossible to use and its just a really solid mouse. They are all very similar but.. I just like the nyth a lot more, worth it at this price.
Ravenis
Good to hear. Looked at them all but haven’t used one yet. This seems like the safest best with all its options. Just placed my order.
That Nyth is a killer concept... it's a laser though, I'm tempted to pull the trigger on it. I remember when it came out... I got thin wrists and i'm pretty (incredibly fussy) when it comes to peripheral choices.... Roccat really led the charge in mouse innovations for a good year or two there.

You’re welcome! I hope you enjoy it. I liked having my palm resting flat on it, so I used the wider side extension. But I imagine the smaller of the two could be better for claw and fingertip style grips. While I have come to prefer my SteelSeries 600 for FPS, I do really miss having the Nyth’s many thumb buttons for navigating my desktop and web browser.
Sorry for the late reply, I was offline for awhile. Optical mice as seen as optimal (or nominal?) choice of for gaming. Lasers are would be tolerated faster (as a law of averages) for MMOs (World of Warcraft) and maybe MOBAs (League of Legends). I guess, ultimately, better optical sensors and/or lasers sensors change the game. I'm actually having problems remembering what my own points of argument would be. Lasers have liftoff issues (which depending on climate, arm physiology etc and desk setup) can be a problem. David_R mentioned the Swarm software, so that's Roccat specific or proprietary. Opticals are seen as smoother movement. I'm sure many people have an optical mouse that's 10-20 years old with a sensor/chip/firmware that they swear by. DPI (industrial point of view) is a financial investment/statement seeing as a 16K dpi sensor would be useful if you were using a 16K monitor etc... (I'm just adding this on sorry), meaning from the point of industry, mouse sensors are outpacing monitor resolution, which means (again) that mouse sensors could become stratified to multiple industrial uses perhaps outside the plastic mould of a "mouse".
I always wanted to try the Roccat Kone EMP, but I'm too accustomed to my Logitech G703 wireless mouse..
September 15th, fingers crossed.

When are these mice being shipped?
Load 2 more comments
After looking at a few reddit threads looks like, Edison, NJ but they have other centers they ship from like in NY and Cal.
PropsAndMayhem
Sweet, I live in LA so hopefully that will expedite my order. Godspeed Roccat.
I feel like I could get a better deal for these items on amazon.. especially with prime: http://amzn.to/2gjTDt3

Im in the middle of building a PC and I can only speak for the nyth, but in 2 months no website, including Amazon as you mentioned, has dropped the price below 95$. It’s available today for 75. Almost 25% off is not bad for a mouse with a solid price.
Perfect drop to update my mouse to the EMP. I've been using the Kone XTD for 4 years, and the thumb buttons have started getting loose (needs a lot more force to register a click for them... maybe the switches got pushed inward after getting squished during moves). After slight abuse, which scratched the rubberized palm rest a little, it's still going strong for left/right clicking and the mouse wheel. Primary likes is the shift key to essentially get more "keybinds" out of your limited number of buttons, and I love the scroll wheel. I use the palm grip, so it may be too large for some who use other grip styles.
Tyon is pretty tempting. I've never used a roccat mouse before though. I currently have an Evga carbon X10 and the mouse i'm using ATM is a Logitech g502 spectrum. Wonder if the Tyon would be any sort of an upgrade? I like buttons on my mouse. I map most of my controls to them when gaming. The Tyon looks like just what i need.

I got my Tyon from Massdrop some time ago and I absolutely love it! I previously had a Roccat Kone, Gskill mouse, and various TT Esports mice, and I love my Tyon over all them by FAR! The only thing that I can say is a negative about this mouse is the software, but that seems to be the main issue with most 'gaming' mice these days. It will randomly switch profiles on me and when that happens, it is impossible to get it to revert to any other profile, or change any of the macros/keybindings on the mouse no matter how many times I try to change it within the software and re-apply it. Only thing that works at that point is restarting my PC.
My first and only Roccat mouse was the Laser XTD. It was the most expensive mouse I've bought at the time. I have to say that IT WORN OUT so fast. The silver Line Cat Logo is gone, Dusk inside the Light strips etc... Fast forward, I've now own many mices and I gotta say its the worst build quality of all the Mouse I've used and yet it is THE MOST Comfortable mouse I've used. Nothing else fits my 20cm hand like it does.
I'm pretty skeptical with Roccat right now, I'm not sure How their quality has stepped UP or DOWN with their current lineup. At this reduced Price I'm considering the EMP. I kinda wish they would use the Cat Logo lighting for the EMP. I know for sure that the Cat Logo would be gone.
EMP Owners, How are the Mouse 1 & 2 Click feels? Stiffer than Logitech's?
Has anyone here used the Nyth before? I haven't been able to find a comfortable MMO mouse since the old Razer Naga with the changeable side grips, and I have been toying with getting one of these. All of the other MMO mouse I have tried are just too wide for my hand, and this one seems like it may resemble the shape of the older Naga with the different grips.

Very strange...
I ordered a nyth as well. This is the lowest price I’ve seen it in the last few months by 25%
Coincidentally, my cat just knocked my KPM hard onto the tile floor and now the + button is flaky. Anyone care to comment on how these newer models compare? On the KPM I run at max resolution (5000 dpi) on my WQXGA monitor, using MarkC's thing to disable all Windows acceleration. I'm a fingertip gripper so have never been able to get much use out of extra buttons.
I've still got a Ninox Aurora sitting in a box on a shelf too from a drop years ago, may be time to finally transplant that into a WMO and try it out...

Answering my own question a little... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ck-nXyhRJMA (KPM vs KP Owl-Eye)
Karis
The Kone Pure Owl-Eye I believe is the exact same body shape as the military, but has a new/better sensor.
All the KONE-type mice have the same structural build problem with the click sensors getting pushed down to cause errant double clicks. This cant be fixed without opening up the mice (breaking warranety), and theres lots of Horror stores about Roccat support to get it fixed. FUNDAMENTAL BUILD PROBLEM NEVER RESOLVED
Ive only had my roccat KONE XTD for about a year with light use, and its already has this issue.
BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID.
larsinio
I agree to this! I also had the Kone XTD and didn't even last one whole year! Build quality is the issue on this good mouse.
larsinio
I'v been using a kone pure optical for about 2 years now and I never encountered that problem (or any other). I'm a pretty hardcore gamer to point of installing things like povohat's mouse accel capture driver... mice get abused by me, and I'm over-the-top picky about them. I'v used about a dozen gaming mice, razer, A4tech, zowie, logitech etc... roccats are by far the highest build quality in my experience. After 2 years my pure optical shows some superficial signs of wear like getting shiny at places, but mechanically/technically it works 100% the same as when it was brand new.
I pulled the trigger on Kone EMP Owl-Eye just days before this dropped appeared; current daily-driver mouse.
I'm really impressed with the build quality and performance. While waiting for delivery, I was a bit nervous that the "fit" would be off, due to my average-sized hands (almost every review out there claimed only a 18cm+ hand would be suitable); thankfully this is not an issue. The EMP is as comfortable as any I've used. As well, the click sounds from buttons 1 and 2 are pleasant; almost thocky (compared to my old logitech g303). The braided cable is just a tad thinner and softer than the g303, and I find the mouse-cable hanger unnecessary.
The only gripe I have so far is a bit tough to nail down. Where my palm rests just below the ring and pinky fingers tends to get a bit "sticky" after some time. It's not sweat; when I remove my hand from the mouse and feel my palm, it's completely dry. Initially I thought that the mouse was heating up on that spot, but touching the mouse where my hand was resting feels dry and a normal temperature. An upside to this is that the mouse is easy to grip. It could be a reaction to the UV coating, and maybe it's just me as I haven't read anyone else experiencing this. Overall, it's not a deal-breaker, but I thought it worth noting.
Would buy again. Paid $99.99 CAD + free shipping

you think the Clicks are tactile/ Firm/ Stiffer than the Logitech?
MidnighTempest
Tactile feedback feels better to me, maybe due to the larger size and weight difference. Seems less rattly than the logitech (virtually none when striking the buttons).
Sound on EMP right mouse click is definitely more muted; left mouse clicks sound similar, but EMP has a better feel, again, due to it's solid heft reducing any extra vibration. Stiffness seems on par.
I'd liken it to the difference between riding a mountain bike with fat tires vs a road bike on city streets. You definitely feel the bumps and potholes more on the road bike. Some people like that feedback but I'm not one of them.
Also wanted to add that I got used to the "sticky" sensation I mentioned in the original post. Don't notice it all now for some reason :/
Roccat's mice are fantastic. The scroll wheels are the best on the market, and the new Owl Eye sensor is supposed to be fantastically accurate.
Tman450
ALPs scroller, hence they are ONE of the best mechanisms out there.
Prefer this type of scroll wheel to most others, due to it's precise movement like a Rollex watch ; )
This seems ridiculously inexpensive. The Tyon is at best $89 everywhere else.
ASieting
Agreed, especially the white one.
Always worth buying some more Roccat gear.
Love it when MD supplies us with such a choice, more Group Buys should be like this, not one but six choices.
Nice One ; )
I've owned/used most of these. Ask me anything.

Wow I was going to pass on the EMP thinking that it was going to be too big for me but if it's the same length as the g502 thats about the length of my hand. Love the g502 but one of my gripes was that it wasn't wide enough for my palm, so this is perfect. Thank you for the awesome info and helping make an educated decision.
Deftones787
Yeah no problem man.
This comes in regular retail packaging right? I am thinking of getting one as a gift for a friend.
Dgordon
Yes it will.
