The iconic

HHKB Hybrid Pro Type S Snow

The HHKB Professional HYBRID Type-S Snow models are pure white in colour with a minimalist design, aesthetically pleasing centre middle printed keycaps and an updated Fn key.
The printed version features a Helvetica-style lite typeface never before seen on HHKB models. Available with printed or blank keycaps.

  • Minimalist, Tenkeyless, Near-Symmetrical Layout

    Designed with a lot of white space for a minimalist and stylish design.

    The compact size and near-symmetrical layout means your fingers never have to leave the home row, making for greater speed, accuracy and reduced wrist and finger fatigue. Key characters are printed in the center. Lowercase function keys are located at the lower left and lower right.

  • Topre Silent Key Switches

    Comprising a conical spring, rubber dome, electrostatic capacitive sensor and silent membrane, Topre silent key switches eliminate key chatter, whilst providing supreme tactility, extra comfort, keystroke precision and a quieter HHKB experience.

  • Premium PBT Keycaps and Spacebar

    Sculpted keycaps and spacebar made from durable, shine-resistant PBT with dye-sublimation printed legends for long-life and a crisp, professional finish. 

  • Cylindrical Step Sculpted Design

    The cylindrical-step sculpted design provides greater ergonomics, with all keycap surfaces facing centrally, feels more natural and helps you keep your fingers on the home row.

  • Hybrid Connectivity

    Connect to your PC or hybrid device via USB (Type-C), or connect to your PC, Tablet, Smartphone (up to 4 paired devices) via bluetooth multi-pairing, instantly switching between devices with keyboard shortcuts.

  • Dip-Switch Customisation

    Dip-Switches enable you to change keyboard mode to support different Operating Systems.

  • UNIX Arrangement

    We adopted the key arrangement following the Sun Type 3 key array. The [Control] key is to the left of [A] for greater usability and maximum productivity.

  • Keymap Customisation

    Keymap settings are written and saved to the HHKB itself, so the same keymap can be used with different devices.

  • Made & Designed In Japan

    Commitment to quality, durability, and technological sophistication.

  • HHKB Hybrid Type-S

    Hybrid connectivity options and silent key switches create a quieter experience on all your modern devices.
