Tesoro is hosting a private suite at CES 2017, showing off a few of their products already released in 2016, a couple of new products announced at CES, and a prototype design of an ultra-thin mechanical keyboard.
Tuned In-Ear Pro Headphones
Tesoro has recently announced their Tuned In-Ear Pro Headphones. These headphones include many features we commonly see on higher priced earbuds, but Tesoro has kept the price down so the average consumer can afford to purchase then, while still maintaining a high quality feel and finish.
First, we can talk about the cable, Tesoro has used a flat tangle free cable design with an inline microphone, this makes using them headache free since you do not need to spend time untangling them. Next, the earbuds, are made of solid metal, which gives them a high quality feel and a little weight. One of the nice design features that Tesoro did is make it easy to know which earbud goes into which ear. The metal housing is designed to make it intuitive for which ear it belongs to.
Next, Tesoro has also designed the earbuds to be magnetic, so when they are not in use, you can connect them and hang around your next. Or just have them magnetically connected for storage.
Inside the box, Tesoro has included not only the Tuned In-Ear Pro Headphones, but also a carry case, and several different sizes of rubber ear tips for a comfortable fit with the 9.2mm drivers.
The Tesoro Tuned In-Ear Pro Headphones will have a MSRP of $34.99 once they hit the retail channel in Q1 2017.

Tesoro Ultra-Thin Mechanical Keyboard Prototype
Not only did Tesoro provide us a chance to take a look at their two new products, but also gave us a glimpse at one of their prototypes due for release around Computex time in the 2nd Quarter 2017. Not much information was available on the new keyboard.
What we do know is that it will use low profile Blue switches, similar to those on the GRAM Spectrum, however they have also made the keyboard chassis low profile, at only 12mm high.
This shows that Tesoro is looking to provide the latest technological advances in innovative products. Placing a Corsair GS USB 3.0 flash drive (it has a 10.16mm height) next to the keyboard, we can see that the back part of the keyboard is slightly thicker than the front edge of the keyboard, which is where the 12mm thickness comes from.
We will have to wait for pricing on the Ultra-Thin Mechanical Gaming Keyboard until we get closer to its release date. As soon as we fine out more information, we will be sure to pass it along.
