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

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.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mouse

Pros: Best mouse I have used to date.

Cons: Has developed a software or firmware issue. Cannot change settings any longer.

Other Thoughts: The mouse is well within warranty, and still works, but Newegg will not honor warranty. I guess this is it with Newegg. I'll keep the mouse, and switch my provider.
This one is on you Newegg.

1 out of 5 eggsDrivers Not Working

Pros: Probably would be a good mouse if the drivers worked.

Cons: was really excited to get my hands on this mouse only to find out it's just a flashy paper weight because the drivers do not work on it. so i returned the mouse and got a replacement because i was told by the support staff that it sounded like internal memory of the mouse was not uploading the profile correctly to the mouse''s memory. so i exchanged it out for a new model only to find out this new mouse has the exact same problem which points more to incompetent driver software than anything else. so i still have a paper weight that only cycles through the default light setting and a large set of buttons that cant be program. I'll be returning this mouse.

3 out of 5 eggsRoccat Tyon Software Problem

Pros: Mouse feels really good in hand and is made of high quality materials, I don't see it breaking in 6 months, braided cable is light and doesn't get stuck on things. Tons of buttons and options in the software.

Cons: The major flaw on this mouse for me would definitely be the inability to completely shut off the lights - i can in the software select (all off) and the main lights go off but as soon as i activate easy shift button, on comes the bright neon cyan blue that literally distracts me every time. I've gone through everything and cannot find anything about shutting off or changing the easy shift button color anywhere. It makes me wonder if there's a problem with my unit or if everyone just looked over it.

Other Thoughts: Everything else on the mouse works perfectly - macros, color flows, color changes and button presses or macros to the braided cable never getting caught, its really an amazing high build quality mouse. I just wish they would fix the easy shift issue.

3 out of 5 eggspoor x-celerator compatibility and "16milion colors" is a lie

Pros: The buttons are useful and well placed. See cons about x-celerator

Cons: The color choices are more limited than what ROCCAT claims. You can move the crosshair anywhere you want on the custom RGB slider and the software will display a unique color - but when you apply this setting to the mouse - get ready for ZERO change. The light on my mouse is either yellow or orange. But never is my mouse one of the infinite different shades of orange or yellow that the software shows.

Also, from my experience playing Far Cry 4 - I am starting to lose faith that I will ever get the x-celerator analog switch/paddle to function in this game. (It doesn't help that there are not instructions on how to use it). Trying xinput or dinput or even binding the analog paddle to the A and D keys - I cannot get the x-celerator to work. (I would like to use it for steering left and right in a vehicle). Not really sure how it would ever work since the game doesn't recognize xinput/dinputs unless you have a controller plugged in. REALLY wish ROCCAT would put the effort into documenting the use of the x-celerator (or any of their software controlled functions since they have zero information thus far)

Other Thoughts: Three stars because they don't have documentation and one of their coolest features seems dead in the water.

It's also lame that you can't just go into a game and use the x-celerator to bind a function. You have to use software to make the buttons match up with what you have already set in the game.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Quality, Innovative Design

Pros: I can only imagine how difficult it was to come up with even ONE clever innovation for a mouse, and this mouse has three. The three major innovations in mouse design are:

1) The shift key you press and hold with your thumb works just like the shift key on your keyboard and changes all the buttons to do something else (almost doubling the number of programmable commands, except for the two thumb buttons... unless you have two thumbs of course).

2) The X-Axis thumb control is a very clever addition to the mouse. It is a solidly built paddle lots of potential for use with different game types. Plus you can fiddle with it while waiting impatiently for your server to load faster.

3) The 'fin' style paddle switch on the top of the mouse is a way to get fast access to two more buttons without moving your fingers too far from the main controls. I have large hands and tend to have an arc-grip on the mouse. I can only imagine how great it works if you have huge blubbery meathunk fingers with a flat-grip on the mouse... you'd hardly have to even twitch to activate it.

Not innovations but great features: the buttons situated to the left and right of the main mouse buttons are of better placement than on other mice I have used in this category (like the Logitech G700). I never thought I would actually use those buttons to the top-side of the mouse, but I do now. Some people may think that no weighting system is a con, but personally I think its a pro. I think weights are a fiddly silly add-on for a mouse, try getting a nice gaming mousepad for a real difference. For the amount of tech in this mouse, its worth the $100. This it the expected price point for a mouse of this caliber.

Cons: I miss the two extra thumb buttons on the Logitech G700, this mouse only has two. I tried giving it a stern talking to no avail. Still a superior design overall.

Also the Logitech G700's ability to "unlock" the scroll wheel was really neat, albeit rarely used. So rare in fact I forgot it even had that feature until I accidentally triggered it while trying to repair it and thought "oh riiight."

Other Thoughts: Software-Lights: Unlike some of the previous comments, the software is great. I admit I was thrown at first when my color options didn't seem to be working... maybe this little trick will help other people too. In the color effects the word "flow" means color-flowing from one color to the next. If you want the mouse to stick with 1 color you have to select "No Color Flow (off)" and the mouse will not change to random colors. So dont go with the flow. Its distracting.

Software-Profiles: You can program each profile with its own light set so you can quickly change to the profile you need for the application you are using. I even have a whole profile for using this mouse at work... macros make me a much more efficient worker because I am lazy. I think I may buy a second one so I dont have to remember to bring it with me every day. I asked my work to buy me one but they laughed. I admit I cant figure out how to turn off a profile I'm not currently using, I just turned off the mouses lights on the profiles I'm not using and skip to one I use (clever right? Yes.) This mouse has 5 personalities and despite therapy refuses to admit it has a problem.

On board memory: The On-Board memory means you can program the mouse on one computer and then transfer the mouse to any computer (even one without the driver software) and keep the macros and buttons you programmed (not a feature unique to this mouse, but one I like and use often). Its like comparing a dumb-phone to a smart-phone. This is a smart-phone-mouse. Except not a phone and with split personalities.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Linux support
Easy to program
Get to chose your own color scheme

Cons: No weighting system

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace my Logitech G504 Proteus. The Proteus is extremely nice, but didn't have proper Linux Support. So far the Tyon has been a worthy successor. I'll probably be sticking to Roccat products from now on due to proper Linux support.

1 out of 5 eggs$25 mouse for $99

Pros: Braided cable

Cons: Poor build quality, software does not work, no weight system

Other Thoughts: This mouse was an utter disappointment. It felt very cheap. Build quality is very poor. Software did not work on a Windows 7 64-bit desktop. Might pass for a $25 mouse. No way is this worth $99!

5 out of 5 eggsTyon

Pros: -Comfortable. Excellent for medium and large hands. Hands that don't like what Logitech has been doing with their gaming recent mice should probably look at Roccat.
-Button layout is good and design is workable. You'll know if you're hitting the wrong button by touch so you can avoid pushing the wrong button.
-Customizable RGB lights and buttons. Easy-Shift also gives each button a secondary function so you are doubling the amount of functions for the buttons.
-The analog-paddle can actually be useful if you give it a useful function in Windows. For gaming, I haven't found a use for it, yet.
-Software is easy to use. All Macros are stored on the mouse's memory so no additional software is necessary after customizing the mouse to your needs.
-Unlike to Kone XTD, the slick grips were removed from the sides and replaced with textured grips. Much better.

Cons: -Price tag. MSRP is somewhat high for this mouse. Yes it's customizable but it doesn't have a weight system (not that it really needs it). I'm not sure one can justify the high price tag.
-Laser sensor, not an optical sensor.
-The jury is still out regarding the dorsal fin. I think Roccat should have just left that function on the scroll wheel like on the Kone XTD. Being a separate button and needing the middle of your fingers to use it doesn't make it easy to use.

Other Thoughts: Bought it locally as I would have to pay for shipping.
I tried a Kone XTD but it had some QC issues and likely the firmware bricked it so I was a little gun-shy when I saw the Tyon. But I liked the shape of the Kone XTD and hand doesn't complain about the shape unlike what Logitech has been doing so I went for the Tyon. So far so good.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Gaming Mouse

Pros: This mouse is a game changer. I've used this mouse for two weeks now and can say its the best gaming mouse I've ever used. I like gaming mice with lots of buttons that I can use for keyboard shortcuts and macros and this mouse fits the bill.

Things I like:

- lots of buttons within easy reach of fingers
- The "easy shift" & "paddle" can be used for keyboard shortcuts or macros.
- Comfortable
- Great software for making keyboard shortcuts & macros
- LED lighting is awesome and different schemes can be assigned to different games
- Scroll Wheel has a great "tacky feel"
- DPI is smooth and tracks well and can be easily adjusted
- Many advanced features

Cons: Software:
In the current software, sometimes names of macros gets blanked but the macros are still assigned and working.

Other Thoughts: - Great Tech Support:
At first I couldn't get macros to work with the buttons so I emailed Roccat and they suggested it was my anti-virus and to exclude the Tyon folders and executable's and that fixed the problem. So the problem wasn't the mouse but my AV software. They also gave me a tip to use "Assign keyboard Shortcut" for key combos which works great. If you don't like to create macros or multiple profiles you can just assign keys to all the buttons using this method.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, Innovative Mouse

Pros: Comfortable with buttons easily accessible with either palm or claw grip unless you have extraordinary, massive hands (my hands are above average-sized, but as a surgeon, I'm fairly dextrous). The buttons throughout the Tyon are uniformly satisfying when clicked, giving both a notable tactile and audible feedback.
If you are familiar with Roccat, which is essentially the best Europe has to offer (and far-ahead of any of our brands like Logitech or Razer), the driver software works well, is well-integrated if you have other Roccat products, and efficient (this is not Razer Synapse). Lighting control is nice, as this is a RGB mouse.
The analog paddle works well and is useful in any game where you might need to do pitch/yaw adjustment OR even for throttling a vehicle.

Cons: There are no weight adjustments... on the other hand, as one who has owned and used mice like Razer Naga, RAT MMO, Logitech G600 (and discarded them all in favor of Roccat Kone XTD, then XTD Optical), I must say that a weight system is nice, but not necessary. If pushing around an extra 20 unces (little more than a pound) is going to consititute a workout for you or improve your body control, you have more issues than what a gaming peripheral maker can do for you.
The mouse is given a non-stick/coated but seemingly good plastic on top and coated rubber to the sides. Time will tell if there is an issue of whether the mouse breaks down or not. It is a value proposition as to whether it would benefit or is really necessary to have aluminum parts (which makes it... lighter?).
The dorsal fin works fine, but I concur that if it were a bit taller, it might be easier for those with tinier fingers or less-nimble abilities if such a T-shaped swithc as the previous reviewer recommended, On the other ahnd, it might make for a more cluttered mouse surface, and as it stands, as a daily user of the Tyon's dorsal fin, its not an issue.

Other Thoughts: Roccat should be praised for such innovation. $100 is a little steep, then again, neither Logitech or Razer slather their comparable mice with metal... but you get what you pay for (in my opinion) and if you have other Roccat products, its Roocat Talk and Talk FX compatible.. can't beat that.

I actually had a Tyon a few weeks ago, and bricked the mouse with the firmware upgrade. I got a second Tyon from Best Buy as I RMA'd the original back to NewEgg and await it's replacement. The second Tyon had no issues with the firmware upgrade.
