What is the SENSE75 Keyboard?
The SENSE75 Keyboard is the newest keyboard edition from the Drop along with the Drop ALT, CTRL, and ENTR. The keyboard is created with CNC-machined, aircraft-grade aluminum; bundled with their new DCX profile keycaps, Holy Panda X switches, and their own phantom stabilizers. It's truly a keyboard created with all of DROP's best products in one. The design is very minimal with only two colors: a "Nightfall" all black design and a white version with a "white electrophoretic coating". The white version looks especially sleek with a color matched rotary knob.
Speaking of rotary knobs, the knob on the keyboard is aluminum with mountain knurling. This mountain knurling texture give the knob a great grip to allow for minimal force when turning. The knob isn't a free spinning-knob and on each turn, clicks due to the premium alps encoder.
The gasket features on the keyboard are completely custom too. Drop describes trying to reach a middle ground between not being too stiff and not too mushy.
When pressing a key on a gasket keyboard, the ideal result is that after the switch bottoms out, the gaskets (and plate) continue to allow for travel, thus providing a softer conclusion of the keystroke (and a quieter sound!).
- South-facing switches to avoid keycap interference
- Reliable hot-swappable sockets to maximize customization
- PCB-mount stabilizers that come factory-tuned to minimize rattle
- Innovative RGB underglow
- Per-key RGB that can be customized
- Accessible configuration software and QMK firmware (our new configurator will launch before the SENSE75 ships, more info to come soon)
- A premium fit and finish, made of aircraft grade 6000-series aluminum
- A gasket mount keyboard that genuinely provides a gasket feel
How much is the SENSE75 and when will it launch?
SENSE75 will be launching on 8/30 at 9am PT for $349 fully-assembled with Phantom Stabilizers, Holy Panda X switches and DCX keycaps.
Additionally, the first 500 purchasers will receive the following bonuses for their early support:
- Free MT3 keycap set (note that this will require the use of a coupon, and will therefore conflict with your monthly DKC coupon; Drop rewards can be used with purchase)
- Free novelty keycap celebrating the launch of the SENSE75
- Free keyboard carrying case
The first 500 keyboards will ship in November.
Drop is also planning on working on launching a number of mod options as well, such as weight plates, polycarbonate- and carbon fiber internal plates etc, which all are expected to be available once the SENSE75 ships.
