Designed for pros and heavy hitters, Halo65 packs the firepower that can deliver on your most demanding tasks. From the cap to the coating, from the actuator to the damper, we push the envelope on wireless mechanical keyboard technology, and fine tune every component to create a typing experience that has never been experienced before.
Explore the design story of NuPhy Halo65.
A profile that stands out.
To shatter the stereotypes of what is possible with high profile keyboards, NuPhy has taken a radical approach to Halo65’s design language. A band of light, the ‘Halo’, forms the central piece that unites the solid unibody aluminum frame, first seen on a fully assembled keyboard, with the laser-polished ABS base. Enhancing both the grip and the sense of height, the base's wavy, Ionic column inspired side brings vibrancy to the minimalist, achromatic aluminum frame, available in wear-resistant anodized matte black and elctrophoresis-coated ionic white.
Play without the plug in.
At NuPhy we are always about minimizing delays. Be it pairing with a new set-up on the road, multitasking between up to 4 different Mac/Windows devices, or heavy-duty editing and gaming which push a connection’s responsiveness to the limit, with its seamless tri-mode connection integration, perfect dual-OS support and 4000mAh built-in battery that can sustain 320 hours(all lights off) of continuous use, Halo65 is always there when you need it, and gets out of the way the moment thoughts start to flow from your fingertips.
Mac and Windows.
Elevating the game of native dual-OS support, we have been updating and fine-tuning the multimedia keys layout and function for MacOS/Windows on our keyboards to reflect the newest developments from OS vendors, including the implementation of shortcuts for Apple's dedicated ’Spotlight’ and ‘Dictation’ keys in Halo65’s Mac mode. We will continue to find more ways, and shortcuts, to bring extra values to our users on the software side.
A delight to the eyes, a treat for the fingers.
Your key presses will register, and nothing else. Moulded with the double-shot PBT process, the all-new NuPhy KOP keycaps sport an ergonomic rounded-corner, flatter design, as well as grease and scratch resistant surfaces that retain their stunning look and feel even after extensive uses. Hmmm, maybe that’s something that does stick around after all, our bad.
With keycaps so brightly and vividly colored, it is hard to hold back the urge to indulge in some good’ol mix and matches, and you don’t have to, we have thrown in 17 extra keycaps to make the decision easier for you. Enjoy the extra bit of styling and personalization!
Introducing GhostBar, the world's first noise suppression space keycap, and the culmination of half a year of acoustic, material, structural engineering. Employing Silentcone, an innovative acoustic stealth system designed specifically for space bar acoustic shaping, GhostBar has made possible the complete elimination of hollow sound, perfect blend-in of the space bar sound with other keys, with no trade-off in weight and touch response.
for your buck.
We love listening to the users, and that is how the consonant, clear, mesmerizing typing sounds made from some of the community’s most creative acoustic improvisations have caught our attention. Combining a built-in Plate Silicone, PCB Silicone, Bottom Silicone and Spacebar Silicones, NuPhy offers a complete noise-reduction and stabilization solution for all Halo65 users.
Supervising every detail in not just design but manufacturing, Night Breeze(linear) and Rose Glacier(tactile) represent the results of our innovative process to create switches imbued with pleasant touch, sound, and NuPhy-ness. Both come with stems made from polyketone, a next generation high performance polymer with tremendously improved elastic limit, higher durability and oil resistance than commonly used POM material. Together with the extra-length stem design, the POK material is instrumental to enable a crisp and satisfying sound feedback for the new key switches. The 21mm spring plays as important a role in achieving the balance between good tactile feedback and comfort as the stem does for the sound feedback, while the pre-lubing process ensures the NuPhy experience is instantly available the moment you receive your switches.

Press and be impressed.
Baby Kangaroo switches, or BBK, is the fruit of thousands of experiments to create the optimal tactile and acoustic experience for all purpose normal profile keyboard users, and the partnership between NuPhy and Gateron. With BBK, you get immediate, strong tactile response for each press: the tactility reaches its peak at just 0.5mm of travel, laying a firm ground early on for a well stabilized downstroke, followed by an extra-length two-stage spring enabled swift bottom out and a snappy return during the upstroke. BBK's no-nonsense yet thorough approach translates to a typing experience that is robust, focused, and energetic, and a clean, crisp, lingering sound, thanks to its noise-reduction design and housing construction, as well as Gateron’s pre-lubing process and our built-in damper system.
Bold but relaxed.
The secret sauce that packs the punch for BBK is finally coming to linear switches. Enter Baby Raccoon,built with a extra-length single stage stem pole, and the same PA66 housings as BBK, Baby Raccoon complements the smooth, consistent feel of a linear switch with a snappy return. This combination makes BBR a perfect choice for those who want all around, balanced switches, but snappier, cleaner upstrokes, and better sound performance.
Switch. Swap. Swagger.
Not sharing our love for NuPhy switches or BBK/BBR? No problem. Halo65 comes with Gateron G Pro 2.0, our pre-lubed smooth typing champ on the menu, as well as full hot-swappability support. With the 7 bonus switches shipped with each package, a different typing experience is just two pulls and one push away. Now tailor the insides of your keys to your heart’s content!

The power glows.
With 2 rings of illumination, 17 different default light effects, 65 RGB LEDs, 16M RGB colors, and unlimited software customizability at your fingertips, the show never stops with Halolight. And it is not just for show: we have streamlined the Sidelight keyboard status monitor first demonstrated in the Air series, a single unified indicator LED now keeps you informed on connection modes/OS transitions, CapsLock and battery status. Now easily stay focused while being entertained.
There is the rest,
and then there is the rest.
We promised a light show that never stops, and it certainly wouldn’t be stopped by the keyboard’s edges! Built from a precision machined acrylic module and aluminum module coupled together, the Twotone wrist rest is as great a companion to Halolight as your wrists. The acrylic top diffuses the RGB lights emitted from the LED ring, completing the amazing Halo effect, while the sturdy Aluminum base provides support and enhances the structure.

Great typing experience!
I love the typing experience. I've played around with 2 other mechanical keyboards and different switches and decided to spend a bit more money into a nice pre-built.
I'm super happy with my decision. I have the BBK switches and they are a pleasure to type on. Makes me want to always work from home!
One con is the software - had to download firmware upgrade to get certain function keys working and there are some shortcuts that you need to know to activate certain features on the keyboard. However, the typing experience far outweighs that.
I‘m using this Keybord now for 3 Weeks and it is my first mechanical Keyboard.
From the unboxing experience to the feeling and sound everything is perfect in my opinion.
I‘m working and gaming with the Halo65 and I can not tell any negative thing about it.
But as I live in Germany I would really like the option for a German ISO Layout.
Other than that I love it!
This is my first mechanical keyboard, I've owned others that were second hand from friends but this is the first I've bought myself, brand new, as a treat. I'm in love, it's compact, the perfect size so my desk doesn't feel cluttered, the lights are beautiful and vibrant but also soft so when in a dark room they aren't too much or distracting. The fact it's wireless adds to the clutter free, sleek design as well. The option to swap out the keycaps gives you brilliant personalisation options; I ordered keycaps from Etsy to add to this keyboard and am very excited to fit them!
Beautiful keyboard, couldn't be happier with it! Absolutely recommend.
Beautiful, great sound, not function key customizable
Bought for office work with baby raccoon switches. It sounds poppy and fairly quiet. The key caps feel great and look great. It comes with several optional colored key options. The one key I need that's missing is the home key. After some web searching, I've found there is no function key combo to get home on this keyboard by default. The Nuphy software can replace a key, but not add or edit function key layer like via compatible boards. Very disappointing.
Best prebuild ever!
This keyboard is a pleasure to work with.
For me, the ghost bar makes the difference and I am really glad that I order the black version of it.
At this moment, I did not experienciated any connectivity issues (I use BT and cable to reacharge).
I am really happy with the additional keycaps added to the package, you have several options to customize your keyboard.
Still, it is hard to understand why the additional white space is not a ghost bar (way to promote / prove compatibility with the cherry profiles?).
The support team and the packaging was really good.
Realy, really happy with the keyboard!
Keep it up Nuphy!!
