Looking for a compact mechanical keyboard that’s sleek, sturdy, and feature-loaded? The Epomaker TH96 is a powerful keyboard packed with functionality in a premium design. Thanks to the special structural design, the TH96 feels completely solid due to the stainless steel plate, which adds weight and strength to the board. It is innovatively designed featuring the silicone gasket mount structure, added silicone sound-absorbing foam, poron foam utilization, and a thick silicone damping bottom pad which all provide a responsive and peaceful typing sound.

Every mechanical keyboard can feel and sound unique due to the mechanical keycaps being utilized. The TH96 features hot-swappable switch sockets, which allows the user to simply change the mechanical switches without having to buy a whole new keyboard! Simply plug in the desired switch, and you can get the exact typing feel and sound that you want with your new mechanical switch – all without having to solder anything.


With an incredibly large 6000mAh battery, you can take the TH96 with you wherever you go without ever worrying about the battery life. With a single charge, work and play for longer to optimize your time no matter where you are!


Everyone loves RGB lights, but what’s the use when the typist can’t easily see them? The TH96 is designed with south-facing RGB to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist’s perspective. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference if the user decides to install Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on their keyboard.

With more than 19 types of RGB backlight settings as well as a static white backlight option. You can further fine-tune the RGB hue, saturation, brightness, and effect speed with ease.

An essential aspect of a typing experience is the ergonomics of the keyboard – especially when it comes to the wrists. The TH96 is designed with a unique 6-degree adjustable typing angle that is extremely stable.

Furthermore, the silicone bottom frame ensures the security of the keyboard while on any surface, while the MDA profile keycaps provide a better angle for your wrists and fingers. Not only will typing be safe on your wrists, but we’re also sure you’ll enjoy typing for long durations!

At Epomaker, we have been studying the R&D behind mechanical keyboards for nearly a decade. We are proud to present our latest innovations, the Epomaker Customized Switches! These mechanical switches are custom designed after extensive research on the market’s most acclaimed switches and have been improved through community inputs. Strong, smooth, and see-through, Epomaker’s first mechanical switches are available in linear switches or tactile switches.

With a total travel distance of 3.8 millimeters, the linear switches have a longer round trip than most other linear switches but with the same consistent resistance from start to finish.   With incredibly less clicking noise than tactile switches, the linear switch is a perfect option for the office, where you may not want to distract those around you.


On the other hand, tactile switches offer a satisfying typing experience and sound for hours on end. Rated for 100 million presses and an initial force of 47 grams, it provides a welcome tactile threshold to overcome for a nice feel.

Note: The TH96 doesn’t come with the Comte semi-silent switch as a default option. If you like its sound, please add them as add-ons. There are 30 pcs per box, please choose 4 boxes at least if you want to use them on the TH96.




Choose from those different switches to fine-tune your feel and fit any board.

And remember, the TH96 is hot-swappable, meaning you can choose to use any other mechanical switches available in the market to fit your preferences.


Continuing with our previous Epomaker TH66 and Epomaker TH80 models, which are already available on the market, the Epomaker TH96 also adopts PBT keycaps to provide a textured feeling and durability. Our premium PBT keycaps are made through thermal sublimation, meaning the labels will not fade over time. 

We provide the classic MDA profile for the Theory version and the MDA V2 profile for the Grey White Version. Compared with the classic profile, the MDA V2 inherits the height while optimizing the keycap edge to be rounder, delivering a smoother touching feel.  These keycaps are waterproof and resistant to dust and abrasion. Choose the best profile for your typing experience.
