Cougar Shows New Gaming Keyboard with Integrated Speakers

Probably the most oddball fusion of two components, Cougar unveiled a prototype gaming keyboard with integrated stereo speakers. The body design appears to be an evolution of the company's Attack X3, with a few polygonal cutouts along the side-walls. These speakers feature drivers found in notebooks, and take advantage of the hollow space inside the keyboard, and its metal base. The keyboard takes audio input from a standard 3.5 mm jack, while a USB connection drives the rest of it (probably including an amplifier for the speakers). There's also a downstream 3.5 mm jack to plug in your headphones, which probably mutes these tweeters integrated speakers, when your headphones are plugged in. How does it sound? Like your laptop. As a keyboard itself, you get a standard 104-key layout with RGB LED illumination, and special chrome keycaps over the WASD and arrow keys.

Clear sign that this gaming keyboard market has drained any remaining idea!
It was G15 LCD (why this branch is dead, I don't know!) , then return to mechanical keys, and Flop! Lights off!

I started with a G15 and currently have a G19s. I honestly couldn’t live without it. Wish I’d bought 2 at the time and stored one.

I'll admit, I like it.
But I only use cheap USB speakers anyway.

Integrated speakers, probably a bad idea. A headphone jack pass through. Not, a bad idea.
