On the right-hand side, a more complicated analog wheel pulls triple duty, since it is a freestanding direction pad for option-setting. The outer wheel can be used as a volume control, while inside is another D-pad, which is used for playback controls. AZIO's representatives weren't clear if it would be possible to assign your own macros to the controls or not, but you would hope that you could.
The flat, polished steel on the keyboard's frame is wrapped in textured leather, with the colors varying with each option. Gold (the best color) comes wrapped in red leather, while the Rose Gold and Concrete models are clad in white leather. Rounding out the options is the ominously-named Gray edition, itself draped in black leather and, frankly, looking a little dull.
AZIO doesn't yet know how much the Iris series will cost, although you can expect the keyboard to cost between $160 - $190. The numpad will set you back $60 - $100, and there will be some sort of discount if you buy both together. And the range will come with a tailored version of Azio's Retro Classic Mouse, albeit with no changes aside from a matching external finish.
And, did I mention, that I'm in love with it?
