Cherry MX switches

Das Keyboard uses best-in-class, Cherry MX mechanical key switches that provide tactile and audio feedback so accurate it allows you to execute every keystroke with lightning-fast precision. Its high-performance, gold-plated switches provide the best contact and typing experience because, unlike other metals, gold does not rust, increasing the lifespan of the switch. The Das Keyboard 4 Professional mechanical keyboard is available in both the Cherry MX brown and Cherry MX blue switches.

Cherry MX brown switch - Tactile experience

The Cherry MX brown switches have a soft, tactile bump about halfway through the key press. The soft pressure point switch technology makes the mechanical keyboard less clicky while providing an awesome tactile experience.

Cherry MX blue switch - Clicky

The Cherry MX blue switches have a “clicky” tactile bump when the activation point is hit. This feedback helps to increase typing speed by reducing effort needed to push the keys all the way down. The Cherry MX blue switch is the most “clicky” of the Das Keyboard line.

A brand new Das Keyboard font

Das Keyboard’s key cap font has been specially designed to provide ease of reading and harmonious view of the keyboard key caps. Das Keyboard’s font looks modern while keeping some of its lines from older, well established fonts. The overall result is sleek and easily readable while not drawing unnecessary attention.

Footbar = ruler

We got tired of those itty bitty plastic keyboard feet. They are fragile and typical. The magnetically detachable Das Keyboard footbar raises the keyboard to an optimal 4-degrees. It looks sharp and can be used as a precise ruler when not in use as a footbar. 16-Inch red ruler is scaled on both sides. A ruler? Why not…

Every detail matters

Featuring a stunning look, Das Keyboard 4 Professional has been completely redesigned with a sleek anodized aluminium top panel, a resonance-free bottom enclosure, a magnetically attached footbar, and a laser-engraved aluminium bottom label… all which make the design feel more bad ass and the typing feel more responsive.

There is no detail too tiny for us.
