Cooler Master Launches New M800 Series of Gaming Peripherals
Cooler Master has taken the wraps off their brand new M800 gaming series, which consist of the MK850/MK851 keyboards, MH850 headset, MM830 mouse, and the MP860 RGB dual sided mousepad. Cooler Master's design team created this product line completely in-house, so it really represents their pure vision of what gaming peripherals should be.
For starters, there is the MK850 keyboard and its near twin the MK851 with Aimpad technology. While traditional keyboards have keys that act like an on/off switch, with Aimpad activated the MK851 keys function like a gas pedal, allowing slight adjustments and more control without having to continuously tap keys.
Since Aimpad is a pressure sensitive technology, the MK851 uses linear Cherry MX red switches, while the MK850 will be offered in a choice of blue or brown Cherry MX switches. Both models feature a cobalt aluminum top plate, dedicated macro and multimedia keys, two precision wheels, and a wrist rest.
Next in the series is the MM830 featuring hidden D-pad technology. Four integrated, low profile buttons provide the competitive gamer easy-to-access maneuvering that can be pressed without needing to lift the thumb. The four D-pad style buttons can be pressed as fast as you can react by rocking your thumb up, down, backward or forward. Software allows users to program the Dpad buttons, precision wheel functions, and RGB color effects. This gaming mouse is housed in a durable PBT chassis with full 16.7 million RGB options and 96*94 OLED screen for customization. Between its top tier Pixart 3360 sensor and 24,000 adjustable DPI capability, the MM830 should stand out among the slew of other gaming mice.
The new RGB dual mousepad is a dual-sided mousepad with RGB LED lighting built-in. There is an easy to clean hard side that is designed for precision and control, and a softer side for daily tasks. No swapping out necessary either, you just need to flip it over.
The MH850 headset features virtual 7.1 audio and Activate Focus FX technology, which combine to isolate the mid and high tones to hear subtle sounds such as footsteps during competitive play. Turning Focus FX off elevates the bass for those who really want to rattle their skulls. The MH850 will come with cloth and leather ear pads for comfort, on-cup controls, detachable USB Type-C and 3.5mm cables, a removable flexible boom microphone for convenient positioning, complete RGB customization, and a fold flat design for proper storage.
All of these products are set to launch during Q2 and Q3 of 2018, and will first be available retail at Amazon.com and Newegg.com.
