ROCCAT™ Tyon – All Action Multi-Button Gaming Mouse
Master Your Battlefield

Trailer
OVERVIEW
Gaming has changed. The modern battlefield is an especially hostile place, with threats from the air, sea and land. How do you react to these extra dimensions of gameplay? Enter the ROCCAT Tyon, the all action multi-button gaming mouse that's the result countless hours of design from the industry's greatest minds, specifically tailored for modern, multi-vehicle warfare.
Tyon Tyon Tyon

Unrivaled Command Power
The Tyon features the X-Celerator, a single-axis analog thumb paddle pioneered for modern battlefields. It gives you unrivaled command capabilities without sacrificing control. You can use it to seamlessly tilt left and right, pitch up and down, increase and decrease throttle and much more, all while maintaining perfect mouse control.

Improved Easy-Shift[+]™ Functionality
ROCCAT's breakthrough Easy-Shift[+]™ technology lets you assign a secondary function to each button on the mouse, for a near endless number of attack possibilities. The secondary function can be activated once the Easy-Shift[+]™ button is held down. On the Tyon, this is a dedicated button conveniently located beneath the traditional side buttons.

Extended Attack Options
The Tyon is the first ROCCAT mouse armed with the ingenious Dorsal Fin-Switch, a two-way button controlled mid-knuckle, expertly placed for ease of use without having to adjust the hand during crucial moments. The Dorsal Fin-Switch is a brilliant tactical design to move ever more vital functions away from the keyboard and to your gaming mouse.

An Expanded Arsenal
Four expertly placed ergonomic buttons flank the main right and left clicks, allowing even more functions to live on the Tyon rather than your keyboard. This addition to the multi-button layout allows for even more rapid execution of myriad commands, designed to feel so comfortable each action feels like second-nature.

Your Tyon, Your Style
Fully customize the look of your Tyon with new industry-standard RGBY lighting illumination system. Adjust the color of your scroll wheel and mouse rim independently of one other for your own unique look. With a variety of enhanced lighting effects to choose from and your choice of 16.8 million colors, the Tyon melds on every level to your style.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mouse

Pros: I love this mouse, I actually bought two of these.

Has pre-built functionality for browser and media player. Great form, therefore great comfort. Has a button to controller sensitive (dpi). Roccat's software is easy to use.

Cons: No macro buttons to setup for those who love setting up macros on their mouse. I mean, there are a couple of buttons you could define.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Mouse, But It Has Problems.

Pros: This is an update to my original review. Having owned the mouse for a bit over a month, and used it daily, I can now more clearly review it.

Overall, I'm mildly satisfied with the Tyon. After years of owning a Logitech G9x, I was really happy to own a mouse that doesn't emit a constant high pitch whine. No, the Tyon doesn't make any noise...at least not noise that's audible. Anyhow, onto the pros of this device.

I really like the construction and button layout of the Tyon. It fits well in my medium sized hands, and overall, it feels like most of the mouse will stand the test of time.

Some people have looked unfavorably on Roccat's Easy Shift functionality. I, on the other hand, find that it's extremely useful. When I was looking at the mouse before my purchase, I was a little concerned that the Easy Shift button was positioned in a way that would make it uncomfortable to push while actuating the other mouse buttons. I was pleased to find that my thumb is easily able to depress the Easy Shift button without much wrist movement at all. I'm a huge fan of Easy Shift. Now that I've gotten used to it, it will be hard to go without.

In addition to Easy Shift, the 4 extra buttons placed either side of the LMB/RMB are fantastic. They're positioned in a way that allows for easy actuation without getting in the way of the actual LMB/RMB. The only minor complaint that I have is that my normal mouse grip makes the 2 uppermost buttons slightly out of my standard reach. This, obviously, would vary from person to person, and frankly, it isn't anything that I cannot easily re-adjust to.

The final major benefit of this mouse's highly versatile software (Roccat Talk). The software isn't without its flaws, but more on that later. As for its benefits, there are many. Macro functionality and button re-assignment is vastly superior that nay other mouse config software I've ever used. It does take some getting used to, but once you learn it, you can create very specific macros in a matter of seconds.

For the Tyon, Roccat decided to strip the mouse wheel of any kind of "normal" tilt functionality. Instead, they incorporate a find switch. While I do really like the fin switch, I find that it should be a bit wider. My normal grip allows me to easily tilt the fin to the left with my middle finger. That said, because the fin is pretty narrow, I have to lift my index finger and move my wrist to tilt the fin to the right. It isn't that big of a deal, but it seems a little more thought should have gone into the fin.

On the other hand, I've got to imagine removing the tilt function from the wheel will increase its durability. I've owned several mice, and the wheel failed on many of them.

Cons: Now for the cons. I originally rated this mouse at 5 eggs. No more. It gets 3. This mouse has some pretty ridiculous design flaws, in my opinion.

First up: At first, I really fell in love with Roccat Talk. The software was so easy to learn, and it seemed like it was extremely well designed. I began to program the mouse for my most commonly used applications. I knew that the mouse was capable of storing 5 profiles into its on board memory. From reviews I had read previously, it seemed like once you filled up the 5 on board profiles, you could then add as many more profiles as you wanted, but they just wouldn't be stored on the mouse. Wrong.

The mouse has 5 profiles, period. If you want more, you have to manually save profiles and load a new one into its on board memory. The way I see it, this is unacceptable. Maybe it's just me, but I'm used to having far more profiles the 5. The Tyon's 5 profiles stored into its memory should allow for portability and fast application switching, but additional profiles should be available, albeit not stored internally. Sure, the profile switching may be slower, but the Tyon doesn't exactly detect applications and switch profiles immediately to begin with.

Second: The Fin Switch is meant to be a mouse integrated X-Axis joystick controller, and in fact, that's exactly how Windows "sees" it. There are 2 problems with it. 1: Many games can't handle the fact that Windows detects more than once Joystick controller. To remedy this, you've got to go into your device manager and disable the Tyon's joystick functionality. The rest of the mouse works just fine, but it's a real hassle and Roccat should have foreseen this. A software toggleable switch should be included in Roccat Talk to completely disable the joystick behavior. 2. The Fin Switch's usefulness is dubious at best. It's placed in a way that you actuate the fin with your thumb in a lateral (side to side) motion. For me, I can barely control the fin in any kind of accurate fashion. If you don't need to move the mouse or hit any other buttons, it could be useful in games, but how often does it happen that you only need to move the X-Axis and not hit any other mouse buttons.

Another big problem: It seems that every 2 or 3 reboots of my computer causes the Tyon to forget its memory. All my profiles are lost and I've got to reprogram the thing. This is simply not tolerable. Maybe the mouse shipped with a faulty internal battery (which I assume must be responsible for storing the on board profiles when not plugged in), but I haven't opened up the mouse to investigate. Frankly, I shouldn't have to. Furthermore, I've done some specific web searching on this issue, and it seems like I'm not alone.

Third con: DPI sensitivity adjustment increment is 200 DPI. All my other mice with an adjustable DPI offer 100 or even 50 DPI increment adjustment. For fine work that relies on very sensitive mouse inputs, 200 DPI increments simply don't cut it for me. I'd be happy with 100, but 200 is just not good enough. For as customizable as the rest of Roccat's software is, I expected more.

Final complaint: The mouse wheel. As previously stated, the general feel of the mouse does instill confidence in me that it will last a few years. However, the mouse wheel does feel a slight bit flimsy. Actually, it isn't that it feels flimsy at all, it just makes a concerning metal-on-metal grinding sound if you don't apply perpendicular downward force when moving the wheel. If you slide the wheel while applying sideward force (as in moving the wheel with your index finger without putting your index finger directly on top of it), then it makes this noise. Maybe it'll be just fine, but I'd hate for the wheel to fail in 6 months.

One final con: My day job is as an audio engineer. So sound is very important to me. Yeah, this is a mouse review, I know. Just read on if you're interested. My old G9x mice would emit a high pitch sound, so I could never use it while working. I had to revert to a very basic 5 button mouse with no macro functionality. I hoped to be able to use my Tyon while doing audio work, but the second I plugged it in, I was met with very loud pink noise across all my local preamps and control room IN/OUTs. Moving the mouse only makes the line noise worse. I'd bet dollars to donuts that if I did a tear-down of the Tyon, I'd find cheap capacitors and poorly shielded circuitry. For the kind of money this mouse sells for, I expect more. Sure, this issue is something 99% of its users will never notice or care about. For me, it's darn near a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if this is a Roccat problem or not, so I'm not including it in the Con section, but after switching to the Tyon, I've noticed that a few games seem to have serious issue with the mouse. The Tyon works just fine for hours, but then after I end my gaming session and go back to doing other work, the mouse loses its ability to focus on certain windows. More specifically, the mouse will move (pointer moves on screen as well), but I can't click on anything. From there, I can use keyboard commands to close and re-launch all Roccat processes, but this does nothing. The only thing that fixes the issue is to plug another mouse in or reboot the machine. I don't have this issue with any other mouse, so I believe the problem is a Roccat issue, but I can't be sure until I spend the time to trouble shoot.

One final thought: after reading a few reviews before my purchase I noticed some reporting that profile updating and switching was very slow. I was pretty confident that the "knowledgeable" reviewers weren't clever enough to figure out their anti-virus/firewall was interfering with the mouse-driver-config process. So, just to note, make sure to tell whatever firewall/anti-virus solution you're using to whitelist all the Roccat processes and executables. For me, updating my profiles from the software takes a few seconds.

In the end, I'm moderately pleased with the mouse. If Roccat adds the ability to store more profiles in software, and if the profiles stop disappearing after a few reboots, then I'll give it 3.5 or 4 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsThe one to rule them all.

Pros: I am somewhat of a mouse collector as I am always looking for the perfect all in one. I use to use 2 mice, one for shooters and one for rpg type games. I went from an xtd, to g502 to now the Tyon. I have recently also purchased the Nyth however the shape is better for slower twitch games not shooters IMO. I found the g502 almost perfect but was a bit to narrow so it had issues holding it for long gaming sessions. The Tyon just had it all, all the buttons I need, it's laser is amazing, it's a great size and shape for fast shooters while also being rpg friendly. Software is very easy to use and it's been 99 percent issue free. This is only the second mouse to make it into my mouse hall of fame. First was the G9X just fyi.

Cons: For almost exactly 1 day a firmware update made the mouse act funny, next morning it was updated again and fixed. Normally I wait a few days before I update firmware on anything to read about bugs...woops.

Other Thoughts: I buy a lot of mice and this most likely will continue, I just like testing mice and other PC/tech gear. Modern games IMO need more then the classic few buttons of most "FPS" type mice and rpg mice are made for long comfort and are just slow due to wider shapes in general. Roccat hit a homerun with this one. Very few mice and do it all and not miss a beat. Only mouse right now that comes close IMO is the G502 which I also think is great. Roccat has and will be tops on my list for gaming mice, I see zero need to get another any time soon. Put it in your cart and check out.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best

Pros: I used a lot of mice from old school Aopen g-35, to razer nagas/death adders and logitech g600. Finally found THE mouse.

Big nice round shape compared to the kone pure. Slightly larger than a death adder. All buttons feel like they have a nice solid click feel. Buttons are laid out nice. Love the cpi buttons, I use them all the time depending on how far away someone I need to click on is. Works perfect in Linux, no programing delay. (Pro tip for windows users, check your anti virus if you get long delays changing settings.)

Cons: Its a little high priced but after using it I decided I really liked it anyway. Doesn't come back after suspend resume in linux, need to play around with firmware still. Not subtracting an egg for something I didn't look into yet.

Other Thoughts: I was worried about the shape on the right side of the mouse since it looks almost the same as the kone pure. The kone pure was giving my pinky anxiety. This one has a nice shape almost up there with a death adder for me.

Only con I'd give but its not really a con, I like to drum my mouse. Its nice to be able to fire fast with your own fingers so people can't say stop using an auto clicker. (I get why people get mad. My click speed is major bull, I average between 10-15 clicks a second, but its legit so lol. ) Obviously you can't drum this mouse. Online people don't know so I just set up a double click with a 30-40ms delay.

Will definitely try out the nyth when I get some more disposable income. Build quality is top shelf with both roccat mice I have. All the other mice I used I beat the mouse 1 button completely flat. So far I done no repairs to the roccat mice.

3 out of 5 eggsTyon, great while it lasted

Pros: When it worked it was great. Software allowed you to map all of the mouse buttons to any key you wanted and was very easy to make various profiles.

The X-Accelerator was such a great idea. I hardly had to use the keyboard in most of the games I played.

Cons: The X-Accelerator only lasted about 4 - 6 months. Then it took on a mind of it's own. I called ROCCAT and they tried to help, but the fix they give never lasted longer than a day.

Other Thoughts: ROCCAT has excellent customer service which is why I've had their Kone XD and Tyon mice, but to break after 4-6 months is a serious QA issue. I did not mash the paddle, you don't need to.

I look forward to their next mouse, but for me the Tyon did not work out that well.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very nice mouse, installation with mouse and software were easy. Plenty of features and very customizable, software app works well and easy to use. Buttons galore, I got the roccat isku fx to go together with, using both together works very well. I would highly recommend this mouse and a roccat keyboard together with "Talk" feature.

Cons: None.....

1 out of 5 eggsAwful mouse, buggy, big and heavy

Pros: Lots of buttons and innovative placement

Cons: This has to be the worst mouse I've ever tried and I've tried most of them. The side buttons wouldn't work for me about half the time in games. Oddly enough, they worked fine if I tried in notepad, but not in game. I thought it might be a game/software/config issue, but my other mice worked perfectly with no issues. The mouse is heavy and too large - I have big hands, I wear XL gloves, but this feels really unwieldy and feels really imprecise.

The software is hard to use and unintuitive. I don't know why mouse manufacturers have to write their own controls and reinvent the wheel with UIs.

Other Thoughts: This was my first Roccat purchase and a huge letdown. The mouse seems well-built but I really can't say anything good about it.

3 out of 5 eggsRoccat Tyon Mouse

Pros: Many programmable buttons.
On-board memory.
Nice ability to program shortcuts.
Excellent DPI selection.
Shift+ key to enable additional buttons.
Able to program complex macros.
Novel "analog" thumb paddle.
Nice feel and tracking.

Cons: Buggy firmware: Fails to save delays on macros, or reliably save macros. Cannot copy macros to use as a new macro. Difficulty editing pre-existent macros. If you use different versions of windows OS, will not recognize or use older firmware to upgrade macros. Asks you to upgrade firmware, but it is not possible with older versions of windows to do so.
Thumb paddle failed to work after about a year.
Poor customer support, difficulty with RMA process with manufacturer. I am still trying.

Other Thoughts: Could be an extremely good product. I enjoyed exploring the many available features. I liked the analog thumb paddle. Wish the company could have better support like Logitech where it is easy to call and talk to someone, and get a product replaced quickly and efficiently. I would like to see fully debugged firmware and software. I think the product has a lot of promise.

5 out of 5 eggsKinda wonky software.

Pros: By far the most versatile mouse I've ever used; likely the most comfortable to use as well. The software is ridiculously thorough and very well designed.

Buttons and clicks all feel perfect, and despite it's (fairly) large size, it supports my claw grip very well. The lighting is bright and colors are vibrant.

Cons: Dorsal and thumb "fin" buttons have little use. Most buttons cannot be mapped out in games due to lack of support; This doesn't mean the mouse is bad however, it's not the product's fault.

Like I mentioned above, the software that you can download for the mouse is very well designed and can customize anything you could possibly want to, but lighting effects (breathing, shifting, etc.) are limited, and the profile saving/loading system is somewhat counter-intuitive. Not enough to warrant four eggs though.

Other Thoughts: Great mouse, but driver software could be improved.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: Nice idea. Very innovative.

Cons: Not a bad mouse I just couldn't get used to the button placement. My thumb kept hitting the side buttons so I ended up returning it.
