Hybrid connectivity options and silent key switches for a quieter HHKB experience on all your modern devices.
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.
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.
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.
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-Switches enable you to change keyboard mode to support different Operating Systems.
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.
Commitment to quality, durability, and technological sophistication.
