September 5th, 2021 marked a pivotal moment in the realm of low-profile mechanical keyboards with the launch of NuPhy Air75. Fast forward two years, and the Air75 has been reinvented, emerging as a paragon of innovation in the wireless keyboard sector.
A Design Philosophy of 'Less is More'
NuPhy's Air75 V2 embodies a design ethos where simplicity reigns supreme. The top frame maintains its minimalistic charm, now available in Basalt Black, while the bottom case has undergone a transformation. The result is a more transparent and finely textured aesthetic, showcasing the keyboard's internal components in a visually pleasing manner. The 'Ionic' bottom furrows and metal-plated light bars glasses add to the keyboard's sophisticated look.
Unparalleled Wireless Performance
The Air75 V2 shatters traditional limitations with its 1000Hz polling rate 2.4G connection, placing it alongside pro-gaming keyboards in terms of speed and endurance. The keyboard's Nordic NRF52810 SoC and STM32F072 MCU ensure minimal latency, offering a wireless experience indistinguishable from wired keyboards. Benchmarks against its predecessor and other QMK-based keyboards have proven the Air75 V2's superiority in low latency applications.
Firmware Freedom with QMK/VIA
Embracing the power of QMK/VIA, the Air75 V2 opens up a world of customization. Users can now easily create keybindings and transform layouts across major desktop platforms. The integration of the Win/Mac mode switch with VIA's layers further enhances its versatility and ease of use.
Enhanced Compatibility and Keycaps
NuPhy continues to innovate, ensuring better compatibility with MacOS, including dedicated shortcuts for 'Spotlight', 'Dictation', and 'Launchpad'. The introduction of double-shot PBT keycaps for Air60, along with dye-sub keycaps and shine-through options, provides users with unmatched customization and style.
Sound Engineering and NuPhy Switches
The Air75 V2 incorporates advanced sound engineering techniques, ensuring concentrated and pure switch sounds. The keyboard also features a range of low-profile switches, including the new tactile Moss switch and the revamped Cowberry linear switch, offering a diverse and satisfying typing experience.
Gateron Switches and Hot-Swappable Functionality
Alongside NuPhy's custom switches, the Air75 V2 supports upgraded Gateron switches, enhancing tactile response and smoothness. The keyboard's hot-swappable design allows for easy switch replacement and customization.
Lighting That Speaks Volumes
The Air75 V2's RGB light bars not only indicate functional status but also create an immersive typing experience. Users can personalize lighting effects via the VIA configurator, maximizing the keyboard's aesthetic appeal.
Accessories for Every Need
NuPhy's commitment to user comfort is evident in its range of accessories. From the updated NuFolio V3 to the versatile NuPack and the elegant Mono Wrist Rest, users are assured of comfort and convenience whether at the desk or on the go.
A New Chapter in Typing: The Nuphy Air96 V2 Experience
The NuPhy Air75 V2 is not just a keyboard; it's a testament to innovation and user-centric design. Its combination of performance, aesthetics, and customization options makes it an unrivaled choice for professionals and enthusiasts alike. NuPhy's dedication to pushing the boundaries of what a keyboard can be is clearly evident in the Air75 V2 – a keyboard that's reloaded, rewired, and truly reinvented.
