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 root mechanical keyboard is available in both the Cherry MX Brown and Cherry MX Blue switches.
