NuPhy’s Spacebar Upgraded to a Quieter Version as “Ghostbar”! What are the details?

2022年10月27日、中国深圳に拠点を置くキーボードメーカー「NuPhy(ニューフィー)」は、メカニカルキーボード「Halo 65/Halo 75」向けの新しいスペースバーを発表しました。

The new space bar was developed in cooperation with “Keystripe” and is claimed to solve the hollow sound characteristic of the space key.

What is the newly developed “GhostBar”?

English keyboards are designed for “Shared Writing” (a writing system in which words are separated by spaces), so the space bar tends to be very long compared to Japanese keyboards.

It was a common concern among keyboard enthusiasts that the larger the keycaps, the more prominent the hollow sound becomes and the further away from a tight keystroke sound.

The “Ghorstbar” is the solution to this problem.

The following is the explanatory text from the website

Introducing GhostBar, the world’s first noise suppression space keycap, and the culmination of half a year of acoustic, material, structural engineering. Employing Silentcone, an innovative acoustic stealth system designed specifically for space bar acoustic shaping, GhostBar has made possible the complete elimination of hollow sound, perfect blend-in of the space bar sound with other keys, with no trade-off in weight and touch response.

Japanese translation

Introducing GhostBar, the world’s first noise suppressing space keycap, the culmination of six months of acoustic, material and structural engineering. By employing Silentcone, an innovative acoustic stealth system designed specifically for spacebar acoustic molding, GhostBar completely eliminates hollow sounds, allowing spacebar sounds to blend perfectly with other keys, with no weight and touch response There is no trade-off.

Briefly, the silicone attached to the polycarbonate connector has a sound-absorbing effect, which suppresses echoes when typing.

Recent keyboards, such as the Keychron K Pro series, tend to use silicone sheets as sound-absorbing materials.

It is likely that this technology has been applied to the space bar.

The old spacebar is in the foreground and the new spacebar is at the top.

The appearance is the same, but the reverse side is very different.

Spacebar Exchange Program applications are due November 27, 2022.

Presumably, if you purchased Halo 65 before October 20, 2022, you will have received an informational email from NuPhy.

Some quotations.

All Halo65 owners who ordered before Oct. 20 will be able to replace their space bars for free(after paying a uniform $3 shipping fee) by ordering through by ordering through the following link.
(Note: the link is valid until Nov. 27, all orders from customers who are not eligible will be canceled and refunded.

Limited to one Ghost-Bar per user, users who have purchased more than one Halo65 please indicate their Halo65 order number in the additional information
provided, and a corresponding number of Ghostbars will be sent.)
Alternatively eligible users are also qualified for our ‘Short Notice Upgrade Reimburse- ment’ program if you are not interested in a new space bar, simply send your Halo65 order
number to service@nuphy.com to claim a $3 gift card, which will be distributed after November 28th, 2022.
Thank you for your time!

Thus, anyone who purchases Halo 65 by October 20, 2022 will receive a free space bar.

Note, however, that shipping costs a flat $3.

If they do not replace the new spacer, they will receive a $3 gift card to service@nuphy.comまで注文番号を添えて連絡すると.

If it costs only $3 (450 yen), it is more economical to participate in the exchange program.
Incidentally, it seems that the space bar originally attached does not need to be sent back.

Coupon codes can also be used for free gifts from Ghostbar.

summary

The above is a description of the new Spacebar.

This is a very minor update, but it is interesting to see products evolving day by day in this way.

The Halo 65 was a product that provided an exceptional typing experience among the keyboards I have owned.

In particular, the exquisite tactile sound produced by ” Baby Kangaroo Switches” is truly addictive.

If you already have a Halo 65, consider upgrading.

If you don’t have one yet, I urge you to watch this video first to hear the best typing sound ever!
