Thermaltake has long been associated with computing, as the company makes everything from cases to power supplies and CPU coolers. It also makes a wide range of peripherals under the Tt eSPORTS brand, which there was a plethora of items announced at CES earlier. We have new mice, keyboards, headsets, accessories, and even an eSPORTS team getting their name on some gear. Starting off with the mice, there's the Level 10 M Hybrid mouse that builds on the success of the original Level 10 M mouse by adding in a wired/wireless function. It's also received a more ergonomic body to help it feel even more natural in your hand. There's also the VENTUS mouse, which is an ambidextrous design perfect for both left and right-handed gamers. The venerable BLACK gaming mouse receives an update too, as it's now available in Onyx and Snow Editions, along with an improved Avago sensor taking the DPI level up to 5700.
If you're interested in keyboards, then Tt eSPORTS have three different ones for you. There's the POSIEDON Z Illuminated keyboard with its Cherry MX Blue switches and full backlighting, which the company is now pairing with a five-year warranty (a world's first for a mechanical keyboard). The BALMUS keyboard is also a fully backlit mechanical keyboard, just it features a brushed aluminum casing, ten macro keys, and five profiles that use the Instant Switch System to eliminate delays. Wrapping up the keyboards is the POSIEDON X, a tenkeyless mechanical keyboard that packs in all the features of the POSIEDON series (like backlighting) in a smaller design.
Moving onto the headsets, the SYBARIS takes center stage as it's a wired/wireless headset with a swappable external microphone. It uses Bluetooth for its wireless technology, which means it can easily pair with a smartphone/tablet for a whole new gaming experience. Using it on the PC isn't an issue either, so now you'll just need one headset regardless of where you game. The CRONOS series sees a couple of new additions, with the CRONOS AD featuring an auto adjusting headband, and the CRONOS GO featuring a smaller design for ease of portability. Both also feature a retractable microphone. The Level 10 M headset gets some new colors in the form of Diamond Black, Iron White, and Blazing Red, while the VERTO headset features a unique geometric earcup design and an auto adjusting headband.
Tt eSPORTS also has some new accessories in store, like the aluminum DRACONEM mouse pad with dual sided surfaces and an attachable mouse bungee, the Battle Dragon Bag for storing and hauling all your gear, and the new Headset Adapter to enable an analog headset to be used on a mobile device. Finally we have the branded gear, which Dota2 "super team" Team DK is adding to the KNUCKER keyboard, CRONOS headset, SAPHIRA mouse, and PYRRHUS mouse pad.
All of these products can be viewed at CES, with availability coming later this year. The Level 10 M Hybrid mouse is priced at $$99.99, the VENTUS and BLACK Onyx/Snow at $49.99, and the Team DK SAPHIRA at $39.99. The POSIEDON Z keyboard is priced at $79.99, the BALMUS at $139.99, the POSIEDON X at $69.99, and the Team DK KNUCKER at $39.99. The SYBARIS headset comes in at $139.99, the Level 10 M at $99.99, the CRONOS AD at $69.99, the CRONOS GO at $49.99, the VERTO at $79.99, and the Team DK CRONOS at $59.99. The DRACONEM mouse pad is $39.99, the Team DK PYRRHUS is $24.99, the Battle Dragon Bag at $54.99, and the Headset Adapter is a mere $9.99.
