All purpose,
0 compromise.

Designed for pros and heavy hitters, Halo96 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 Halo96.
https://nuphy.com/blogs/works/halo75-halo96

A profile that stands out.

To shatter the stereotypes of what is possible with high profile keyboards, NuPhy has taken a radical approach to Halo96’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, Halo96 is always there when you need it, and gets out of the way the moment thoughts start to flow from your fingertips.

Designed for
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 Halo96’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 18 extra keycaps to make the decision easier for you. Enjoy the extra bit of styling and personalization!

Introducing GhostBar.

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.

Less noise,
more bang,
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 & PCB Silicone, Bottom Silicone and Spacebar Silicones, NuPhy offers a complete noise-reduction and stabilization solution for all Halo96 users.

Made different,
feel different.

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. Halo96 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!

Gateron G Pro Red 2.0. 45gf old school linear switch, medium actuation force, bumpless, consistent feel, fit for gaming or serious work sessions.

Gateron G Pro Brown 2.0. 55gf classic tactile switch, solid 'bump' feel, good feedback, versatile and balanced, suited for gaming, office work, and most other purposes.

Gateron G Pro Blue 2.0. 60gf clicky switch, pronounced 'bump' feel, decent feedback, sounds as the name suggests.
 

Gateron G Pro Yellow 2.0. 50gf linear switch, stronger actuation than the RED, also smoother, with thockier sound. Recommended for users who value strong feedback&sound.

Gateron G Pro Silver 2.0. 42gf early actuation linear switch, only 1.2mm of opreating travel and 3.4mm of total travel, medium actuation force, recommended for serious gamers who want the highest apm.

Gateron G Pro White 2.0. 38gf, the lightest G-PRO 2.0 switch, high consistency, good for extended hours of work and study.

The power glows.

With 2 rings of illumination, 17 different default light effects, 80 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.

Beautiful and Premium

Right out of the box, this keyboard feels and sounds amazing. It has a nice weight to it, and the materials feel very high quality. The Rose Glacier tactile switches are one of my favourites to date. I highly recommend getting the Palm Rest add-on.

NuPhy always delivers!

I had from the Air 75. This is on a whole other level. Rock solid keyboard, feels much more premium. The Baby Kangaroo switches are phenomenal, you don't want to stop typing! . It came in a beautiful package and with cool accessories. Highly recommended!

Completely Blown Away!!!

I am completely lost for words.

I have never written a review for a keyboard before but I felt compelled to write one for this keyboard.

I just received mine in the mail and I can officially say that if you are thinking about getting this keyboard... Stop thinking and pull the trigger now.

I have bought different mechanical keyboards from the big brands like Logi, Razer, and Corsair before but this one definitely blows all of them out of the water. For a while my favorite keyboard was the Drop Alt but I wanted to get a 96% and this one looked really good for the price. What you're getting for the price and unbelievable.

That first keystroke was enough to AMAZING! The lube switched (slightly over-lubed) and the THOCK! Man... Really can't beat it.

This will certainly become my daily driver! Stop playing and orders yours already, you won't be disappointed!

Perfection

So, this is my first mechanical keyboard and holy potato I was not ready for this.

I spent a lot of time hesitating to buy this since I am used to ISO FR (azerty) layouts and almost went for the Keychron K8 Pro but the Halo lights just won me over and boy I am soooo glad I went with the Halo96.

The look and feel out of the box is absolutely amazing, you can just tell how premium the build quality is when you touch it. The weight of the keeb, the softness of the keycaps and the sound are just really satisfying (I chose Night Breeze switches. Check the video).

I only used it with wireless 2.4Ghz for now but it seems responsive with no issues whatsoever. The software on the other hand is really a pain to use, clearly a work in progress, but I have faith that NuPhy will improve on this.

Also, their mascot is a cute waifu. Instant 10/10.

Good job NuPhy.

Excellent

Its material quality is at the finest level and the same for the typing experience. And frankly, I can't think of a keyboard that gets any better than this. Good luck to competitors.

Absolutely amazed

I am currently typing on this keyboard with my M1 iMac and this is my first ever mechanical keyboard. To be honest, I was nervous. I have always used Apple Magic Keyboard. I am blown away on how quickly it paired with my Mac. I have tried other mechanical keys to help me to decide - where it is required to download an app. I love the idea of not required to download an app to use with this keyboard.

I chose the Night Breeze switches, I am happy to say I made the right choice. The sound is not loud and as a heavy typist I appreciate that level of sound. The keycaps are PERFECT! (Considering ordering the shine through soon). The spacebar - oof *chef's kiss*

It is a heavy keyboard - which is what I wanted so that it stays in one place. Definitely not for portability.

I also ordered the TwoTone Wrist rest, and I would highly recommend it as it is comfortable and the halo light shines through it.

Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful keyboard.

This keyboard is beautiful

This is my first keyboard of this type and all I can say is I'm blown away with the build quality and looks of this thing. I'm using it wireless with the USB 2.4 adapter on windows and all the hotkeys work as intended. I definitely recommend

I received my Halo96 in the mail two days ago.

It's one of the best pre-builds I have ever used (including the Keychron). I have the ionic white keyboard with the night breeze switches. Some of the best pre-lubed switches I have ever used. Still, I added o-rings and lube to reduce some of the noise so my girlfriend doesn't get as annoyed with me lol.

I am blown away.

I just want to congratulate and thank you. This is like no keyboard i've ever used, and it exceeded my wildest dreams for what i ever wanted in a keyboard.

This is by so far, the best, most incredible, enjoyable, and every other overwhelmingly positive adjective I can think of- keyboard that I ever have had the pleasure of using. I thought the air75 was pleasant, but this halo96 with the rose-glacier and the wrist rest, it’s the most amazing keyboard I’ve ever used. The keycaps are brilliant. The switches are PERFECT!!

The wrist rest is comfortable, sturdy, and allows for the halo-light to shine through it. I literally can’t think of anything I want in a keyboard that this doesn’t have. What you guys did with the spacebar is revolutionary. This is the best peripheral I’ve ever used. You guys should be extremely proud of yourselves. I paid extra, but this got here sooner than i would've expected it to, I almost feel bad for my air75, i guess ill keep it in my backpack as a travel keyboard but i see myself using the halo at my office and at my home-desk. I simply will not get out of my chair because the amount of pleasure i am getting writing this review on my keyboard is astounding. I think i might just have to write a novel now! Thanks Nuphy. Whatever you create next, you've got a die-hard in me!

Thank you so much for creating this keyboard.
