Built to last
The perfect blend of technology and art
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 root mechanical keyboard is available in both the Cherry MX Brown and Cherry MX Blue switches.
Oversized volume knob & dedicated media controls
With its large volume knob, Das Keyboard 4 root allows users to quickly adjust volume while on a Skype call, in a Google hangout, or streaming online music. The Das Keyboard 4 root also provides quick access to dedicated media controls such as mute, play, pause, next and previous track. A quick-access instant sleep button has been added to save energy while going to lunch or attending meetings.
2-Port USB 2.0 SuperSpeed hub
Das Keyboard 4 root provides a convenient built-in 2-port USB hub to allow users to charge their phone, login with a YubiKey, and transfer files with a USB drive, all within easy reach.
Extra Long Cable
Das Keyboard 4 root sports a 2-meter (6.5ft) cable that goes through desk grommets to keep your workspace neat and tidy. Now equipped with only one USB cable to power the keyboard and USB hub at the same time.
Gamers and fast typists will love to hear that Das Keyboard 4 root supports full n-key rollover (NKRO) over USB. No need to use a PS2 adapter anymore. Just press shift + mute to toggle NKRO. Full n-key rollover works with Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.
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.
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 root has been completely redesigned with a sleek anodized aluminum top panel, a resonance-free bottom enclosure, a magnetically attached footbar, and a laser-engraved aluminum bottom label… all which make the design feel more badass and the typing feel more responsive. There is no detail too tiny for us.
