ZOOM TKL ESSENTIAL EDITION
ZOOM TKL SHOWCASE
Use your Zoom TKL with your PC, laptop, tablet or even your phone - all without any wires. Enjoy a fast, lag free experience thanks to Bluetooth 5.0. Use the included cable to charge the battery or to use the keyboard in wired mode if that's what you prefer.
The Bluetooth PCB is fully compatible with VIA, the powerful GUI widely renowned for it's customizability and ease of use. Remap any key on the keyboard on 4 different layers, including the knob. Use built in powerful shortcuts and macros, or define your own!
Every Zoom TKL Essential Edition comes with a 2250mAh Li-ion battery included in the kit. The battery should last 6-8 weeks between charge under normal use. Once it's out of charge simply connect your keyboard to your PC / laptop using the included usb-c cable.
ZOOM TKL AT A GLANCE
Zoom TKL uses a gasket isolation mount structure for a soft, bouncy and pleasant typing feel that won't fatigue your fingers even after hours of typing. Gasket mount keyboards sound better and feel more even throughout the board than the typical off-the-rack tray mount keyboards.
Unlike traditional keyboards, you are not stuck with just one layout on Zoom TKL! Change things up every now and then with split spacebar, split backspace, split left shift and right shift!
Leave the wires behind and use your Zoom TKL with your PC / Mac / tablet / phone with ease. The PCB has a polling rate of 1000hz in wired mode. The included battery can go many weeks between charges. Customize any key in the VIA app for Windows, Mac or Linux.
Ergonomic Typing Angle
ZOOM TKL keyboard kit designed a small slope on the front bezel to reduce the height so the our hands can rest on it more comfortably.
Between the F row and the number row, we appropriately increased some width instead of normal 0.25U gap to prevent accidental touch.
The gasket sleeves are made of supercritical foam, it can stabilize the plate while be still giving appropriate space allowing it to flex in a balanced way. Just allow it to move, not too stiff, not too much flex.
PCB and Bottom Case are made of lighter PORON material. In order to reduce resonance, many tests were done on the foaming material this time. We made the PORON lighter and foam pores more dense. Every minor detail matters a lot, with current poron, the sound is more concentrated and is deeper than normal dampeners.
Plates in other materials, such as brass, aluminum and FR4, can be bought as add-on accessories, and they dramatically change the feel and sound of the plate.
ZOOM TKL comes with almost everything you need to put together your first keyboard, including an USB-C cable, premium WS stabilizers and a carrying case. All you need to get are switches and keycaps of your choice, to build the ultimate keyboard that's uniquely yours.
The keyboard feet of Zoom TKL is longer, and the feet will effect the sound more. In order to achieve a stabler and deeper sound, we have changed the small round feet to long bars going from left to the right. The lower foot bar will plug the screw holes and hide the 4 screw holes. While the keyboard is stable, it prevents all cavities that may resonate and reduce hollowness.
Take your keyboard to the next level with an internal SS weight, sold separately. It weighs about 353 grams. Note: need to buy it additionally.
Zoom TKL PCB features Kailh Hot Swap sockets that allow you to just push the switches on, no soldering required! Changing switches is a breeze, you can go from linears to tactiles in a matter of minutes, all on the same keyboard!
