The Air96 V2 by NuPhy redefines the wireless mechanical keyboard landscape, blending groundbreaking technology with refined aesthetics to elevate your typing and gaming experience to stratospheric levels. With its enhanced features and design, the Air96 V2 not only promises but delivers a leap forward in functionality and style.
Design Innovations: Breathe Easy with Every Stroke
The NuPhy Air96 V2 stands as a testament to the philosophy that 'less is more.' The keyboard sports a minimalistic top frame available in the newly introduced Basalt Black, maintaining its sleek appearance while the bottom case benefits from an advanced laser texturing process. This not only enhances its transparency and texture but also allows a clear view of the internal components, now colour-matched to the keyboard’s theme for an added layer of aesthetic cohesion. The light bars glasses, now metal-plated, further harmonise with the overall design, ensuring durability and a consistent look.
Unparalleled Wireless Performance: Beyond Limits
Challenging traditional limitations, the Air96 V2 boasts a 1000Hz polling rate thanks to its new 2.4g chip, ensuring rapid response times and low latency, essential for both competitive gaming and seamless productivity. With the ability to connect up to four devices simultaneously and powered by a cutting-edge SoC and MCU, the Air96 V2 ensures minimal total trip delay, debunking the myth that low-profile keyboards can't meet the demands of professional gaming and low latency needs.
Firmware Freedom: Boundless Customisation
Embracing the power of QMK/VIA firmware, the Air96 V2 opens up a world of customization options. Users can now remap keys, program macros, and adjust lighting with ease, ensuring that the keyboard can be tailored to fit any user's preferences. The integration of VIA allows for simple customisation across all major desktop platforms, enhancing the usability of the Air96 V2 for Mac, Windows, and Linux users alike.
Switches and Keycaps: A Symphony of Choices
The Air96 V2 introduces an array of switch options, including the exclusive Moss and revamped Cowberry switches, designed to cater to different typing preferences and ensure optimal performance. The keyboard also features thin, double-shot PBT keycaps for durable, vibrant legends, alongside options for dye-sublimation keycaps and new low-profile shine-through keycaps, offering a multitude of ways to customize the keyboard’s look and feel.
Sound Engineering: A Quiet Revolution
NuPhy continues to lead in sound engineering for low-profile keyboards with the Air96 V2. By integrating structure-borne sound engineering techniques, including an extra layer of PET sound pad and silicone sound shaping for the spacebar, the keyboard achieves a concentrated and pure sound profile, setting a new standard for acoustic performance in low-profile keyboards.
Hot-Swappable: Tailor Your Typing Experience
The hot-swappable feature of the Air96 allows for easy switch replacements or upgrades, providing flexibility and personalisation in the typing experience. Coupled with the inclusion of bonus mechanical switches, this feature ensures that the Air96 V2 can adapt to the user’s changing preferences.
Lighting and Accessories: Illuminate and Accessorise
The Air96 V2 not only shines in performance but also literally, with flowing backlight and sidelight bars that indicate various modes and battery levels. With the VIA configurator, users can personalise lighting effects to their liking, further enhancing the keyboard’s aesthetic appeal.
