Features



Take Command of Your Destiny

The Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08 is designed to keep you on top of your game.
Crafted with ultra responsive and durable custom-made OMRON mechanical switches, the compact keyboard with 109 customizable keys, an ergonomically designed body, clean matte surface and fully programmable ambient-reactive lighting perfectly delivers your every command with pinpoint precision and speed.



First PERCEIVE... Now REACT and EXECUTE

As games evolve to become faster and fiercer, so do the needs of gamers. Our audio products have always offered enhanced audio clarity and positional placement for you to PERCEIVE what's going on but gaming is much more than just perception.

Whether you are on a race track roaring around corners or fending off hordes of demons, not only do you need to PERCEIVE what's happening, you also need to REACT accordingly and EXECUTE your actions reliably, decisively and accurately.

So we asked ourselves, why stop at just audio?

Today, we give you fresh power at your fingertips. New gear designed just for you, the gamer, to give you the best P.R.E (Perceive, React and Execute) experience you've ever known.



Meet PRES, our professionally customized OMRON switch

Co-designed with OMRON, PRES (Perceive-React-Execute Switches) are custom mechanical switches professionally developed for high actions per minute gaming and typing comfort with a centered light guide for a brilliant RGB backlighting experience. Built for durability and reliability, each switch can withstand over 70 million keystrokes and feature double cross-point technology for fail-safe contacts.

PRES allows you to reach your full potential, offering quick input action and instantaneous rapid-fire keystrokes while minimizing typos and mistakes - giving you the perfect balance of speed and control



25% Faster Response and 12.5% Faster Actions Per Minute

In a world where 1 milisecond is a matter between winning or losing, the speed of your keyboard response is absolutely crucial. While the default travel distance of most mechanical keyboards is 2.0mm, the Vanguard K08 is designed with shorter travel of 1.5mm. This means you only have to depress the keys by 3/4 of the usual distance before a command is fired off, and translating into an important in-game reaction and execution



With some game mechanics requiring you to mash a button really fast in order to do maximum damage to a boss or just to pry a door open, Vanguard's PRES with a total travel depth of 3.5mm, as opposed to the standard 4.0mm, allows you to fire off more keypresses in the same time.

For example, let's say you mash a single key on a normal keyboard for a minute, and register 420 keypresses. With the Vanguard, you'd be able to pull off 48 more keypresses (468 total) in the same amount of time for an additional 12.5% more hits dealt to a boss or 12.5% more words per minute (if you're the sort who like creating walls of text).



100% More Reliable

Unlike normal mechanical switches with single connectors, we've partnered with OMRON to implement cross-point technology for fail-safe contacts in PRES. With dual connectors in each switch, each PRES is guaranteed to fire off even in the event of one connector failing due to oxidation or dirt particles. Our keyboard may just be the first to endure a sandstorm and still be fully operational


26-Key Rollover with Anti-Ghosting Technology

Even with 10 fingers and 10 toes, you'll only be able to hit 20 keys at any one time - and that leaves 6 more to spare! This means we've totally eliminated all causes of keyboard input lag, jams and ghosting unless you're a faceroller
