Drop SHIFT Mechanical Keyboard
We're Redesigning the SHIFT Based on Your Feedback
Thank you to everyone who chimed in on the discussion of our SHIFT mechanical keyboard. We've received lots of responses around the design and layout—and we value each and every comment. With your feedback, we’ve decided to make some important changes to the keyboard. The new, more compact SHIFT will have the following changes made to it: 1. We’re removing the second row of keys from the numpad cluster. This allows the function row and the top row of the numpad cluster to be pulled down closer to the alpha cluster. It will also match the distance found on the CTRL and other, similar TKL keyboards. As a side benefit, people with smaller hands can more easily reach the F row. 2. We’re adding an additional 1u (delete) key to the function cluster. As a result of this addition, the F1–F12 keys will be shifted. This change results in a more easily accessible delete key and a more uniform, aesthetically pleasing look. 3. We’re adding three RGB indicator lights for the Caps...

Drop Merino Hoodie
Narrowing Down Our Colors: Your Input Matters
Thanks for all your comments on the design for our next hoodie! We’re tallying up the votes and reviewing your feedback—and we can’t wait to let you know what direction we’ll take in the next few weeks. In the meantime, the next big step in the development process is choosing and ordering the material. We have high-quality 100% merino from a renowned supplier, that’s used by almost all high-end merino brands in the market. It's a 275-gram mini terry fabric with great mechanical stretch, making it incredibly comfortable. In addition, the terry on the inside makes it more versatile in different temperatures, allows it to dry faster when wet, and makes it easier to take care of than a brush back fabric. As we get ready to place an order for this material, we also need to decide on colors. That's where you come in! We’ve looked at all the trend reports and comments on our first merino hoodie and narrowed it down to five colors. First up is black. It’s a no brainer, a...

Drop + Koss GMR-54X-ISO Gaming Headset
We’re Working With Koss on a Gaming Headset!
Audiophiles are no strangers to Koss. After all, the Wisconsin-based company has been at the forefront of audio innovation since developing the world’s first stereo headphone in 1958. Over the years, we’ve sold many of Koss’s flagship headphones and worked with the company extensively to create a few collaborations of our own. However, we’ve never entertained the idea of working together to create a gaming headset—until now. Koss is known for its affordable, high-quality audio gear. Our goal with this project is to make a performance-driven headset that won’t break the bank and can still be used in a professional setting. Based on the Koss GMR-540-ISO gaming headset, our version will seamlessly transition from the game room to the office to the streets. It will have all the functionality of a PC and console gaming headset, with a look you can wear out and about. As far as tuning, we’re not reinventing the wheel. Like the original, our closed-back gaming headset will...

Drop Wireless Headphones
Announcing Our First Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
Bluetooth headphones are known for their convenience—it’s great not to have that cable hanging around—but in the past, they haven’t been able to hold a candle to wired headphones when it comes to sound quality. We’re looking to change all that with our next project, our first foray into Bluetooth headphones. Taking advantage of advancements in Bluetooth technology and battery design, we’re aiming for the best of both worlds: an audiophile sound in a wireless package. These headphones will use Bluetooth 5.0, the latest version of the Bluetooth standard, and communicate over Bluetooth Low Energy for reduced power usage and a longer battery life. Bluetooth 5.0 is faster than older versions and can operate over greater distances. Plus, it allows you to play audio on two connected devices at once. They’ll feature the latest Qualcomm® Bluetooth chipset and THX AAA™ technology, which is known for delivering the world’s highest fidelity audio with infinitesimally low levels of...

Drop Women's Denim
Details Make All the Difference
When it comes to making a pair of jeans we can be proud of, finding the right fabric is only the first step. After that, no question goes unasked and no detail is too small. We’re picking up where the Ichiban denim left off, so you can expect some seriously next-level detailing. The jeans will feature Japanese YKK hardware, deep front and back pockets, an inseam highlight stitch, and belt loops set in the waistband with built-in raised top seams. Herringbone pocketing and a deerskin back patch will round out each pair. Every time we look at our plans for these jeans, we discover another amazing detail that makes them special. We want you to have the same experience every time you put them on.
