HyperX mechanical switches
The key switches are custom-designed to be a balance of responsiveness and accuracy, featuring a short travel time and low actuation force. They’re also reliable, rated for 80 million keypresses with no loss of quality.
Full aircraft-grade aluminum body
The aluminum casing keeps the keyboard structurally sound and stable when the action gets intense and the game hangs in the balance; battle after battle, night after night.
Compact, portable design with detachable USB Type-C cable
The small footprint gives you plenty of room for rapid mouse movements. It also has a detachable cable so it’s easy to take on the go.
RGB backlit keys with radiant lighting effects
HyperX mechanical switches feature an exposed LED for brighter, more luminous RGB lighting.
Three adjustable keyboard tilt angles
Adjust the two-step keyboard feet for three different angle settings (3°, 7°, or 11°), whichever makes your wrists the most comfortable.
Onboard memory for three profiles
Create your own custom-designed lightshows, save them directly to the keyboard, and take them with you on the go.
Game Mode, 100% anti-ghosting, and N-key rollover
Ensure that all your keypresses register and that you’re not accidentally taking yourself out of the game in key moments.

HyperX Red key switches are linear-style switches. Their name derives from the fact that when you press down their travel path is just a line. They don’t have that “bump” other switch types use to provide tactile feedback. Because linear switches don’t have to reset past a bump to detect a repeat press, you’ll enjoy the edge in speed if you’re playing something that requires double or triple-taps. The smoother movement of linear switches also makes these switches quieter than tactile and clicky switches.
HyperX Aqua key switches are tactile-style switches. Unlike linear switches, they have a slight bump in their travel path that helps gives the user confirmation of a keypress. Tactile-style switches fall between clicky switches and linear switches both in terms of their loudness and actuation force. They’re preferred by gamers who want a fast key switch, but prioritize accuracy over speed.
HyperX Blue key switches are click-style switches with substantial audible and tactile feedback. Because they typically have a higher actuation force and higher reset positions, they may perform a bit slower in rapid-tap scenarios. If you’re a gamer, writer, or just someone who enjoys the satisfying feel and sounds of clicky switches, though, you won’t mind losing that little bit of speed.
