Roccat Kone Pro Air review: “One step forward, two steps back”

The Roccat Kone Pro Air ignores the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” rule. As a long-running and well-loved brand that’s been trucking along for years, the Kone didn’t necessarily need an overhaul. But with the addition of new tech under the hood (Titan Optical Switches, to be precise), it was an opportunity to shake things up a bit. So here we are, staring down a fresh design.

The result is a mixed bag. There’s a lot to love about the Roccat Kone Pro Air and its non-wireless sibling (the Roccat Kone Pro), but they also make a few missteps.
