You can now get white custom keycaps for your HyperX keyboards

It’s the only type of pudding that belongs on a keyboard.

When you buy a new keyboard, most manufacturers give you low-cost ABS plastic for the keycaps. That’s fine to get you going, but ABS isn’t the nicest thing to type on and it’s an oil-magnet.

You’d be better off buying some PBT keycaps to type on, and HyperX knows this. Adding to their range of add-on keycaps is the latest set, the $25 Double Shot PBT Pudding keycaps in white.

I’ve been using this set for a couple weeks now and it’s like a different keyboard. The PBT is slightly grippier than the original keycaps, and I haven’t seen an oil patch yet. I’ve been careful to not eat anything like Cheetos though, I have no illusions about white PBT and stains…

  • PBT is longer-lasting and oil resistant, so the legends won’t fade like on standard keycaps
  • The pudding design really makes your RGB effects shine on
  • They’re compatible with all HyperX keyboards, and you get a keycap puller in the box
  • With the usual buy-in for custom keycaps starting at around $50, this set is a steal

Grab a set from either HyperX directly or from Amazon.
