Everything you need to know about the upcoming PRIX x Higround gaming keyboard collaboration, which is dropping very soon.
Design studio Higround, owned by esports organisation 100Thieves, has announced a collaboration with streetwear brand PRIX Workshop, to bring out a brand-new mechanical keyboard. Higround has previously collaborated with the likes of sneaker resale company StockX, Attack on Titan and more.
This collaboration with PRIX Workshop hopes to emphasize the “merging of Female Streetwear and gaming”, Higround posted on its website. The drop also comes with its own lookbook, where we see a model seemingly attempting to take a phone call using a keyboard. The accompanying shots give us a good look at the upcoming keyboard and reveal some crucial details about the board itself.
Prix x Higround gaming keyboard: key specs
From the images that we have seen of the keyboard so far, it appears to be sporting a compressed 65% form factor. This means that you’ll not have access to the function keys, and is highly optimized for esports gaming.
Not too surprising, considering Higround has previously preferred this layout on their other keyboards. It’s likely that they’ll be using a similar chassis to their previous keyboards. However, it remains to be seen if the board manages to retain premium features like silicone dampening, but it’s highly likely.
The entire board has a translucent aesthetic, with everything from the chassis to the switches and keycaps being completely clear, echoing the design language that we often saw in the early-00’s with translucent tech being all the rage.
Honestly speaking? We’re here for it. It’s such a breath of fresh air to look at, especially compared to the aggressive hormonal gamer rage vibes you get from brands like Razer and Corsair.
- Form factor: 65% (with arrow keys)
- Frame: Translucent
- PCB: Hotswappable
- Keycaps: Shine-through with frontal legend
- Switches: TTC Silent Glacier
- Connectivity: USB-C
The keyboard will also come with a keycap puller, switch puller and what appears to be a braided USB-C cable in the box, too.

Being a capsule drop, you can expect to find limited quantities of the board itself, which is launching exclusively on Higround’s website. Considering that PRIX Workshop founder Esther Ng has previously worked with brands like Yeezy, you can expect that this drop is going to be coming in extremely hot.
