Features

Type Significantly Faster

Type faster than you ever thought possible on this mechanical wonder. The addictive tactile feedback allows you to have a faster, more accurate typing experience.

Gold plated switches provide the best contact and typing experience because, unlike other metals, gold does not rust and lasts over time.

Best-In-Class 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 for Mac mechanical keyboard is available in both the Cherry MX brown and Cherry MX blue switches.

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.

Dedicated Media Control with an Oversized Volume Knob

Dedicated media control with an oversized volume knob 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.

2-Port USB 2.0 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.

feature

N-key Rollover

Full N-Key Rollover (NKRO) Programmers 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.

Laser-etched Key Inscriptions

Laser-etched Key Inscriptions The Das Keyboard 4 root is equipped with laser etched key inscriptions to prevent fading and a custom keycap font to provide ease of reading. The overall result is sleek and easily readable while not drawing unnecessary attention.

Anodized Aluminum Top Panel

Anodized aluminum top panel Featuring a stunning look, Das Keyboard 4 root has been designed with a slick anodized aluminum top panel.

Footbar = Ruler

We got tired of those itty bitty plastic keyboard feet. They are fragile and typical. The magnetically attached 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...

feature

Extra Long Braided Cable

Extra Long Braided Cable Das Keyboard 4 root sports a 2-meter (6.5ft) durable braided cable that keeps your workspace neat and tidy with a tangle-free experience. Now equipped with just one USB cable to power the keyboard and USB hub at the same time.

Every Detail Matters

Featuring a stunning look, Das Keyboard 4 root has been designed with a slick 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.
