Das Keyboard has expanded its popular line of high-performance mechanical keyboards, announcing today its new Das Keyboard Professional with Quiet Key Design.
“Professionals who use modern communication tools like Skype, GoToMeeting, Google Hangout and other means to interact during the workday need a quiet keyboard during their calls to help reduce background noise and distractions”
The company’s Professional Quiet version keyboard reduces audible feedback to a minimum while providing one of the best tactile experiences. The newest member of the Das Keyboard family sports Cherry MX Red key Switches combined with a new Quiet Key Design. It requires less force to actuate keys—45g instead of 55g to 60g for most keyboards—thereby providing a softer, more tactile and “whisper quiet” typing experience.
“Professionals who use modern communication tools like Skype, GoToMeeting, Google Hangout and other means to interact during the workday need a quiet keyboard during their calls to help reduce background noise and distractions,” said Daniel Guermeur, creator of the Das Keyboard and CEO of Metadot Corporation. “People working in open space environments have expressed the same need. The growing demand for a keyboard that could deliver such an experience is what motivated us to design our newest product. The Das Keyboard Professional Quiet is the total package, delivering outstanding tactile feel and a whisper quiet typing experience.”

- Quiet Key Design
