Footbar = RulerWe got tired of those fragile keyboard feet. They are oh so typical. The magnetically detachable Das Keyboard footbar raises the keyboard to an optimal 4-degrees. It looks sharp and can be used as a precise ruler when not in use as a footbar. The 13 inch ruler is scaled on both sides. A ruler? Why not…
Extra Long CableDas Keyboard 4 sports a 2-meter (6.5ft) cable that goes through desk grommets to keep your workspace neat and tidy. Now equipped with only one USB cable to power keyboard and USB hub at the same time.
Every Detail MattersFeaturing a stunning look, Das Keyboard 4 Professional has been completely redesigned with a slick anodized aluminium top panel, a resonance-free bottom enclosure, a magnetically attached footbar, and a laser-engraved aluminium bottom label… all which make the design feel more bad ass and the typing feel more responsive.
There is no detail too tiny for us.
