Different from cheap sound-dampening foam, the MKey has custom-tailored two silicone acoustic absorb pads to perfectly wrap the PCB and bottom of the keyboard. This pad is capable of absorbing undesirable acoustic vibrations to achieve the best keystroke acoustics. The MKey series incorporates gasket structure and two custom-made silicone pads, which are applied to the PCB circuit board and the bottom of the keyboard. These pads effectively absorb any vibration or atypical sound, resulting in a flawless auditory experience.
18 RGB Modes
MKey is equipped with south-facing LEDs under every key for enhanced under-glow, while eliminating ghosting or interference. Moreover, the MKey features a total of 18 built-in RGB lighting modes which can be controlled via the multi-functional rotary knob.
Multi-functional Rotary Knob
The MKey’s Rotary Knob has three main modes: zoom in and out, volume adjustment, and RGB mode switching. Users can easily cycle through these modes by simply pressing down on the knob, featuring a Patent Pending underglow ring displaying the current mode. The Rotary Knob provides users with quick access to essential functions without the need for additional software or keystrokes.
5 Sided Dye-Sublimated Keycap Legends
To create the most visually appealing keycap legends, the MKey features a dye-sublimation printing process on all five sides of the keycap. With this printing process, the MKey offers users with aesthetically pleasing keycaps that are durable through wear and tear. In addition, the MKey features MDA profile key-caps made with PBT for ultimate comfort and ease on the fingertips.
This collection has full F1 to F12 keys, Windows Key Lock function, N-key rollover, and also macro recording function. All these features are accessible directly through the keyboard or through Montech’s MKey software. The F12 key also has an alternate “Boss Key!” function, a direct shortcut back to the desktop!
