Listening to users feedback, ZOWIE GEAR released updated mice in the form of the EC-1A and EC2-a. The new mice keep the same shape and size as the original EC mice, but got an upgrade in the form of an Avago 3310 sensor and a new coating. The new coating is the same premium finish used on the FK and EC eVo CL lines, and the choice is based on user feedback and sales numbers that make it the most popular.
“The idea of the EC Series carrying the AVAGO 3310 (EC1-A & EC2-A) was developed and tested in early September, 2014. It was my decision not to launch this new series. We have started to receive many emails from players regarding this product and this made me realize that I had made a huge mistake by ignoring those who were in need of what they loved. I would like to apologize to those people who have supported the EC series. ZOWIE GEAR will continue to offer a variety of products, happy gaming,” Vincent Tang, CEO for ZOWIE GEAR.
