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 240 hours 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!
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 Silicon, PCB Silicon, Bottom Silicon and Spacebar Silicons, NuPhy offers a complete noise-reduction and stabilization solution for all Halo65 users.
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.
Switch. Swap. Swagger.
Not sharing our love for BBK? 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.

I was on the market for a new keyboard and was looking into building a custom one. This one popped up on my suggestions on youtube and I decided to get it. I say this is probably one of the better prebuilt keyboards out there. It feels premium and is sooo satisfying to type on and listen to. I purchased the one with brown switches as I do more typing than I do gaming. Totally recommend!
Best prebuilt keyboard on the market.
I absolutely recommend this keyboard if you're looking for a quality prebuilt board. I would say this thing as close as you can get to a custom build without having to actually build something yourself. Regarding price, I think the baseline $120 is exceptional. The kicker is the shipping which can add another $30 depending on where you buy from. I haven't experienced better typing on any other prebuilds, though I have relatively little experience here (only Keychron, Logitech, Hexgears). The Halo RGB and sidelight is awesome, I'm rocking the shine through caps that came with the pre-order. The board is pretty heavy, and this can be good or bad depending on what you like. I like a sturdier board and don't mind the extra weight in order for the board to feel like it's well made.
Best keyboard i own till now!
I am fairly new to this hobby and i already own 5 keyboards(Some keychrons and iqunix) and this is one of the best i have so far. I wanted to buy the SPACE65 by Graystudio, but i was late for the groupon. After looking at this keyboard 😍 i think it takes away the thought of owning SPACE65 until they have 4th round lol.
Things that i really liked about this keyboard (I ordered the White with red switches)
- Its heavy which is perfect.
- The switched are pre-lubed and feel really good while typing.
- Like the sound
- Love the LED backlight and the sidelight.
I am already thinking of getting the black with baby kangaroo switches!!
My first mechanical keyboard!
I love this so much. It's very satisfying to type on. I also got the wrist rest and I can't recommend it enough. Worth every penny.
