It’s only the first day of Computex but the announcements are already flooding in. Cooler Master has unveiled several new additions to its peripheral family, with the highlights being a new wireless gaming mouse as well as a new wireless gaming headset.
Starting with the new mouse, the MM831 is the first time Cooler Master has attempted a wireless gaming mouse. With wireless peripherals increasing in popularity, it makes sense to try and capitalise on the current trend, and Cooler Master has implemented both a 2.4GHz connection as well as Bluetooth support. The MM831 is based on the Pixart PMW 3360 sensor (up to 32,000 DPI) and sports four RGB zones. The body of the mouse is made from PBT plastic and its uses Omron switches rated for 20m clicks. We’ve no word on battery life yet but there is Qi wireless charging support – similar to the Corsair Dark Core SE.
The MM831 will cost $99.99 with availability from November 2019.
Alongside its new wireless mouse, Cooler Master also announced a new wireless headset – the MH670. It again uses a 2.4GHz connection and comes with virtual 7.1 surround sound. Other features include its unidirectional boom mic and additional 3.5mm jack so you can use the headset across a range of devices. Lastly, Cooler Master is also touting ‘long-lasting comfort’ while wearing the MH670 thanks to its swivelling, cushioned ear cups. The MH670 will cost $99.99, coming in October this year.
On top of this, Cooler Master has also announced two new headsets – the MH650 and MH630. These are more budget-friendly models, with the MH650 set to cost $79.99 while the MH630 will cost $49.99. Starting with the MH650, this again sports 7.1 virtual surround and a unidirectional mic, but connects via USB. Its cable and mic are detachable, though, making it easy to pack away and take on the go. The MH630 is even simpler, with 50mm drivers and a 3.5mm connector, though its cable and mic are also detachable. Both headsets are due October 2019.
Elsewhere, Cooler Master is also adding to its low-profile keyboard portfolio with the SK851. Cooler Master says this designed with professionals in mind, and rather than Cherry’s MX Low Profile switches, it uses Omron switches, with the option for a tactile or linear switch depending on your preference. It’s also capable of connecting via Bluetooth 4.0, making wireless operation possible, and it should last for 15 hours with the backlight turned on or up to five months without the backlight. The SK851 will cost $169.99 with availability from January 2020.
Lastly, a new ultra-lightweight mouse is also coming from Cooler Master, known as the MM710. This weighs just 52g and is made with a ‘proprietary honeycomb composite shell’ with a lightweight braided cable to keep the weight down. We’ve not had any images of it yet, but it is likely what Cooler Master was teasing here, so we can expect the honeycomb shell to look similar to the Glorious Model O. Other things to note include the PMW 3389 sensor and ambidextrous shape, while pricing is set at $59.99 with availability slated for November 2019.
KitGuru says: Cooler Master has announced six new peripherals in total, and we’ll be checking these out later in the week – stay tuned!
