Multiple customization options with Hot Swap
Glorious has released a must-have for keyboard enthusiasts: the GMMK 2 keyboard. This prebuilt model supports 5-pin hot-swapping, providing the perfect foundation for customization. Equipped with Glorious Fox switches, the Glorious GMMK 2 Pre-Built offers you a classic, linear typing experience. The frictional resistance of the switches is only minimal thanks to the pre-applied lubricant. The haptic feedback ensures smooth typing and flawless acoustics. Thanks to USB-N-Key-Rollover , any number of keys can be pressed simultaneously without ghosting or other delays.
Assembled for you, ready for immediate action
The keycaps are made of double-hot ABS and are therefore particularly durable and abrasion-resistant. Beneath the keys are Glorious' Fox Linear Switches, which offer a balance of speed and control while still providing the satisfying typing noise typical of mechanical keyboards. The sleek aesthetic of the brushed anodized aluminum top frame is enhanced by per-key and side RGB lighting. You can choose from 18 presets and effects. Alternatively, you can adjust the lighting and many other functions individually to your needs via the Glorious CORE software.
The hot-swappableWith its 5-pin socket, GMMK 2 is compatible with all common switches. The integrated plate holds the switches firmly in place, eliminating the need for soldering and preventing dust from getting onto the circuit board. Both the switches and the keycaps can be easily removed from the frame with the tools provided . This keyboard can be outfitted with a mix of switches to suit your needs and feedback preferences.
Robust and compact
The Glorious GMMK 2 features an aluminum bezel with a polymer underside providing a durable and sturdy base. All in all, this ensures a balanced weight, which, in combination with the rubberized feet, offers stability even in the heat of the moment. The aluminum is CNC-milled and has a finely anodized surface . The soft brushed look ensures an elegant look, while the classic black color rounds off the appearance.
This is the Compact model of the Glorious GMMK 2. The clever hybrid design allows a full set of keys to fit into a compact frame that is only slightly larger than a mini keyboard without cursor keys. This saves you desk space without sacrificing keys. Also, the compact size is more ergonomic and comfortable for longer typing and gaming sessions as your hands don't have to travel as far. For improved comfort, the frame is inclined at a 7° angle to protect the wrists. In addition, this angle can be increased to 14° with the help of the feet.
The Glorious GMMK 2 has double-sided printed ABS keycaps to increase durability: Two layers of ABS plastic are fused together for a seamless finish that will stand up to general wear and tear. This prevents signs of wear and tear and ensures a long-lasting product. The tops of the keycaps are clear, so the RGB lighting is particularly effective. Additional labels are printed on the faceplates identifying additional functions on these keys. <br
Arranged in the US ANSI layout, the Compact model has 67 keys that use the standard OEM profile. This profile makes for a nearly flat top, with the keys all being fairly flat, but still with a cylindrical curve to match the curve of your fingers. This maximizes grip and ensures a natural writing position.
Finally, the Glorious GMMK 2 comes with a dedicated ESC key stamped with the Glorious logo. An eye-catching addition to the keyboard, this bright yellow keycap is easy to install thanks to hot-swappable technology and the included keycap puller.
RGB lighting and control software
The appearance of the Glorious GMMK 2 is rounded off by the impressive key lighting and the diffuse side lighting. Each key has its own LEDs and is individually illuminated. The LEDs on the side illuminate your table and thus ensure a soft, atmospheric aesthetic - 18 presets leave nothing to be desired. Alternatively, the lighting can also be adjusted via Glorious CORE software for real RGB enthusiasts.
But not only color games can be implemented with the Glorious CORE software. The software can also be used to assign key combinations and macros to the keys and thus extend the functionality of the Glorious GMMK 2expand and adapt to your own needs. Although the keyboard was designed for use with Glorious CORE, it can also be customized using the open-source QMK firmware. This allows you to customize and personalize your keyboard in even more detail - there are almost no limits to your imagination.
