Greetings to all keyboard enthusiasts!
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the latest creation of our newly established Cyberbay studio- the Choice65, the first keyboard in our much-awaited Choice series. After months of dedicated hard work and tireless efforts, we are ecstatic to finally present this keyboard to you all.
At Choice65, we are committed to providing our customers with the best possible experience in custom keyboards. We understand that not everyone can afford to splurge on high-end keyboards, and that’s why we have planned to introduce more budget-friendly options in our Choice series. Our ultimate goal is to make custom keyboards accessible and affordable to those who wish to delve into the world of custom keyboards and bring entry-level customization kits to the market that are on par with mass-produced keyboards, without compromising on quality.
Now, without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the Choice65!
From the beginning, we wanted to create a simple and elegant keyboard with a good typing experience. By constantly adjusting the aspect ratio of the overall shape and the thickness of the frame, it was finally determined:The left and right frames are slightly thinner than the top and bottom frames, and the corners of the four sides are R2 fillet, making the turning point appear softer. The bottom weight consists of a large area of PVD stainless steel and a diamond-shaped transparent e-coat brass badge.
Comfortable feel of case
A low price for us doesn’t mean we compromise on materials or workmanship. Relying on a strong supply chain, we still use 100% Full CNC 6063 aluminum, and adopt our last well-received DolphinS75 case coating process, which can definitely let you experience a silky smooth touch feel !
Easy to assemble & Consistent typing experience
We did not use the plate gasket mount. Instead, the poron pad between PCB and plate is used to replace the existing bottom case gaskets by extending and lengthening. Meanwhile, a 2mm plate poron pad is added on the plate to replace the top case gaskets. This mount does not have a rigid connection with the case like plate gasket mount, and because the force point is evenly distributed, it can obtain a very consistent typing experience. At the same time, this mount can greatly reduce the cumbersome process of assembly.
