Many things have changed on NuPhy Halo75 V2, even the classic look has taken a major makeover to look more Halo. What has never, and will never change however, is our commitment to only use the bests and the maxed-outs to build the keyboard for our pros and heavy-hitter users.

10x wireless speed,
6x new sound mods,
over 9000x RGB awesomeness,
still 0x compromise.

A glow-rious sight

If there ever was a market segment Halo positions itself in, it is being both a device that can handle every task you throw at it, and an absolute gorgeous looker. Its wavy side columns, solid unibody aluminum frame, and its unabashed light maximalism, all serve to enhance this role. In the design of the V2 we have only doubled down on the investment: the completely redesigned semi-transparent bottom case extends the layer-ness of the Ionic side columns into the third dimension, while the Gem-style nameplate LED brings a fun twist to Halo’s impressive lineup of functional lights. When the lights go on, the bottom case ‘merges’ into the Halo light bands to create the most amazing light effects ever seen on a NuPhy keyboard.

A brighter Halo. Besides the bottom case, the much more powerful LEDs of the Halo75 V2 is the other hero behind the spectacular light display available on it. With 8 different kinds of lights of different illumination styles and placements, Halo75 V2 is well placed to meet the most particular, demanding working and aesthetic needs.

5 diverse color choices. Don't worry, the black and white are not going away, yet the Halo character deserves a new interpretation too. Retaining the simplicity of the neutral colorways, the three new themes serve to impart the expressive power of Halolight 2.0 when it is active, and heighten the dualistic beauty of the case in each of its own ways when unilluminated.

Hi-Fi Halo

Yup, here goes our acclaimed 6-piece sound stack again, landing on a fully assembled keyboard for the first time. With sound concentration and purity so out of this world, we decide it is better not to be silent about it. Oh, and there is the gasket mount too! From now on, Halo users can enjoy a sound experience and cushioned feel tailor made for a custom keyboard, without having to build one. Sometimes, it is just that simple.

PCB Gasket Mount. A deradicalization from Gem's plate gasket mount, Halo75 v2's PCB gasket mount delivers a more balanced feel and sound.

A new height to reach new heights.

Introducing mSA, the high-profile sibling of our much imitated nSA profile, which after more than two years of development has now became available for Halo users. Small tweaks are many: a little adjustment to the SA height for more ergonomics, the larger round surface and symmetric design are a nod to the nSA. What is difficult to miss however, even in darkness, are the light emitting homing bars, illuminated by south-facing LEDs they are designed to be just bright enough to help with the guidance without being distractive.

Finding your way home with the lights. Built with a triple shot injection process, NuPhy's proprietary light-emitting homing bars exploits the south-facing nature of the switches for the illumination, which helps you finding them at much extended ranges. The built-in power saving feature ensures that you will not see in the battery life the immediate difference in the way you interact with the keyboard.

The GhostBar goes.
Sorry we almost forgot it, it is usually too quiet, you know. For those of you who have not heard about the GhostBar, it is our hollow sound suppression spacebar keycap that utilizes a series of small internal chambers to make a sound so similar to other keys that it becomes almost inaudible. We have upgraded it to the mSA profile so it is in even better harmony with the other keys.

Want the front to shine like the bottom?
How about some transparent keycaps in the mSA profile and your keyboard's theme color, shining in the darkness like stars dotting the night sky.

Polling way ahead in the 1000Hz race

We have taken our latency minimization game to a new level on Halo75 V2. Through the combined effort of an state of the art 1000Hz 2.4G SoC and optimization/testing done by our engineers, Halo users can now access the wired-like, pro-gaming level wireless performance on their already OP keyboards.

Truth by numbers told. We did some benchmarks on the new Halo75 V2’s latency performance, against its predecessor and another QMK-based keyboard. Suffice to say, the numbers speak louder and clearer than ever.

Create keybindings without bounds,transform layouts VIA layers.

It only makes sense to extend the great customizability achieved on Halo75 V2’s hardware to its firmware as well. With the open-source QMK/VIA firmware, its endless key mapping, light customization, and other creative possibilities, our hardware’s potential can be truly realized.

Coming to fruition

Unprecedentedly built with NuPhy-branded housings, the Herb series of switches represents a joint-effort by NuPhy and Gateron to bring technologies and designs from ‘frontier’ switches, such as Gateron’s Baby Kangaroo/Raccoon to the regular switches users, while retaining the quintessence of the original ‘division of labor': a 37gf linear switch, Mint for the heavy typists, a 45gf early actuation linear switch, Raspberry to best serve the gamers, and a 55gf tactile switch Lemon for all those who desire tactility and great sound feedback. All the switches come with a POM stem, 21mm length spring, and the new generation of Gateron factory lubing. Nothing too spicy, but certainly the right amount of flavor for a satisfying typing experience.

Move in silence

Smooth, precise, silent…are we talking about ninja moves or what a silent switch should have been? The new Cherry Silent Red Clear-Top switch, launching on NuPhy, have finally gotten rid of that ‘should’ part. The first silent switch that does not feel like all the clicky grating noises have only became scratchiness under your fingers, the Cherry SRCT relies on its completely redesigned mold, next generation factory lubing developed in cooperation with NuPhy, to achieve smoothness, total absence of noise and scratchiness, solid bottoming out in one elegant, legendary durable Cherry construction.
