EpicGear from Taiwan is introducing a new mouse, the Morpha. Like many new peripherals, this mouse is RGB-lit, but that’s not all there’s to it.
Starting with the basics, the mouse has a 6400 DPI optical sensor that uses an infrared LED. It has a symmetrical design, but with navigation buttons only on the left side and an adjustable weight system. Switches include the standard left and right buttons, navigation buttons, a clickable scroll wheel and a DPI adjuster.
Here’s some interesting things, however: The DPI switcher is lockable – if you hold it for three seconds, the DPI light will flash, and after that you won’t be able to accidentally change the DPI in-game during busy moments. To unlock, just hold it for three seconds again.
Next to DPI adjustments, the sensor can also have its lift-off distance customized, you can adjust the angle-snapping strength, and it polls at 1000 Hz for ultra-quick responses.
The mouse’s scroll wheel, DPI level, and EG logo are all RGB-lit, and they can be customized to any color through the included software. The lighting also as an AFM mode (Away-From-Mouse), which will make the lighting move through the colors of the rainbow 20 seconds after you stop using the mouse.
Additionally, the weight system has four slots that can be filled with 5-gram weights, and you can load the weights more in towards the front or the rear (see image above) to achieve your optimal balance. Without any weights, the mouse is 110 grams, and it measures 136.5 x 66.5 x 40 mm.
The mouse cable is braided and is 1.8 meters long, and it has a gold-plated USB connector at the end.
The Morpha will be available in the U.S. midway through March for $69.99.
