Mechanical Keyboards

#1
Ducky x Varmilo MIYA Pro

Nice PBT keycaps with a variety of switches to pick from, has a USB-C port on the top left AND standard layout keycaps, so you can swap without worrying.

Epomaker Niz Plum Atom 68

It's not mechanical, but it's a personal favorite for typing fast without finger fatigue. These switches are responsive, lightweight, and have a perfect bump.

A great switch if you're thinking of switching from membrane to something better.

Logitech G915 TKL

Low-profile, super fast wireless gaming speeds for low latency gaming, and dedicated media and volume scroll wheel. A pleasure to use but costs a bit more.

Bluetooth, RGB, Mac and Windows compatible, hotswappable option, and 75%. What more can you ask for? Oh, but ABS keycaps, bummer.

Headsets/Headphones

#1
Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO

Comfortable for long hours, open-back with a wide soundstage. The highs can be very sharp initially. Works with and without an amp (80 Ohm ver). Love them!

Drop x Sennheiser PC37X Gaming Headset

Audiophile sound quality with a microphone. It NEEDS an amp to get the mic to be clean and loud enough though, mic volume is especially low when plugged into PC.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II

Noise-cancelling, more budget-friendly than updated versions, works great and saves me on a day with loud noises. Microphone sucks.

  3. Niz Atom68 Alu v2 – Such a great upgrade if you already love the Niz Atom68
  4. Skyloong GK61 Kit – Budget-friendly, needs a LOT of mods to sound great, but it can sound GREAT
  5. KBD75 – Sleek look and almost always available
