Wooting two HE - Full-size analog keyboard
The Wooting two HE delivers on the fastest possible input without fail by leveraging analog input technology and years of experience.
Each key on the Wooting two HE supports analog input, allowing per key adjustable actuation point from 0.1 to 4.0mm and unique features that opens new ways for keyboards to interact in games. Everything is customizable in the to-the-point Wootility configuration software and stored on the keyboard, not the cloud.
When you’re not gaming, you can enjoy an extremely satisfying typing experience thanks to the Lekker switches. Google us, read reviews, or join the Discord. You don’t just get a keyboard, you join a vibrant community and development team.

Master of input speedYou’re a gamer. You need the fastest possible input delivered consistently without fail. Not just eye-blinding RGB and dissuasive promises. This is why we are the masters of input.
Adjustable actuation point
Eliminate the slowest element of input speed; the initial key press travel time. Now you have full control over your actuation point from 0.1 to 4.0mm on each key.
Configurable per 0.1mm on a per key basis, you can customize each key towards your playstyle. WASD on 0.5mm, Spacebar on 2.0mm, number row 1-4 on 1.0mm. You name, you do it.
Eliminate the next slowest element of input speed; repeated key press travel time. Rapid trigger changes the actuation and reset point on the fly. Your keys will activate when you intend to press them and reset when you intend to let go.
You can repeat a key press mid motion, at any point of the travel, without needing to surpass a fixed reset or actuation point. This is how you ascend.
Built for performance
Programmed for the fastest inputWe built the keyboard firmware from the ground up, optimized for input speed. Turn on Tachyon mode and its sole purpose will be to consistently deliver you the fastest possible input.
Engineered without compromisesTraditional keyboards adhere to cost saving matrix scanning and hide the negative impact on input speed using dissuasive marketing. Wooting keyboards read each individual key straight from the source using a smart mux design without negative impact.
Gradual inputThe Wooting two HE detects full switch motion with 0.1mm accuracy from start to end. Every single key outputs an analog signal that can be measured from 0 to 100. This allows gradual inputs that you can completely control.
Bind multiple inputs at multiple actuation points using Dynamic keystroke (DKS). This is next level macros that you control. No timers, no strings, or scripts. It’s you and your finger press that decides when, what, and how an input activates.
Take gradual control of your in-game movement similar to a joystick or trigger button. You won’t need a dedicated controller for full immersion anymore. Gradual vehicle acceleration, steering, and character movement now on your keyboard*.
You are in control.
Analog movement is available in selected games that support either Xinput or Directinput. This feature is not officially supported by game developers. Best experience is found in vehicle centred games.
The Lekker switchA contactless magnet switch powered by Hall effect sensors. No metal leaf, pins, optics, or other sensitive hardware that suffers from wear, tear, and particles. This survives the test of times and lasts millions of presses. Broke one? Just swap it out for a new one.
Its simple construction and quality build assures a frictionless linear press. There’s no bump, rub, or scratch. There’s just that linear smoothness.
The WootilityIf you’re like us, you must be pretty fed up with the bloated software from “gaming” companies. That’s why we made our own to-the-point software that we’re continuously improving. Available for MacOS, Linux, and Windows.
Wooting Analog SDKGet raw analog values from each key using the Wooting analog SDK to create integrations or applications. It’s open-source and available on our github.
How about using your Wooting keyboard as a music instrument? Wooting Analog MIDI
Remap anythingYou can map each key however you see fit over multiple layers and profiles. Swap around the control and caps lock, or come up with a whole new layout. Everything is saved on the keyboard. You’re in control.

Do I get Warranty?Wooting products all have a 2 year warranty and lifetime support. The warranty doesn’t go into effect until the keyboard is shipped and an invoice is issued.
What is the difference between the Wooting two and wooting two HE?The Wooting two HE is our latest generation keyboard equipped with Lekker switches. These a magnet switches that have a larger input range than the previous generation Wooting two with Flaretech switches. The Flaretech switches are optical switches.
Furthermore, the Wooting two HE has an additional 16MB flash memory. This allows for virtually unlimited profiles and keyboard layers among other features.
What is the ISO-Blank No keycap variant?To help offer more language support in Europe, we decided to separate the keycaps on all our ISO layout Wooting two HE keyboards. This means that, regardless of the variant, you will always receive a Wooting two HE without any keycaps installed.
When you choose a language variant, for example ISO-DE, you will in addition to the keyboard without keycaps receive a German language ABS shine-through keycap set. This is the same keycap set you can find on our store.
What is Analog input?Every key on a Wooting keyboard can detect how far down you press a key for analog input. Similar to how a joystick or trigger button on a controller works, you can gradually control the amount of input from 0 to 100%. It’s an entire new input dimension that is completely configurable and doesn’t impact regular keyboard use.
Are all keys analog?Yes, each key on a Wooting keyboard has analog input and is configurable. Lekker magnet switches have an analog input range of 0.1 to 4.0mm. This is the entire switch motion range.
Can I install other switches on the Wooting two HE?You can only install Lekker switches on the Wooting two HE/Lekker Edition. It's not possible to install Flaretech or other brand switches on the Wooting two HE/Lekker Edition. It’s also not possible to install Lekker switches on other brand keyboards or Wooting one/two Flaretech keyboards.
Flaretech optical and Lekker magnet switches each require a different circuit board with specific sensor components. This makes them incompatible with each other.
What are Lekker switches?The Lekker switch is a switch with a magnet inside the stem. This magnet is detected by a Hall effect sensor on the circuit board (PCBA). By measuring the magnet force field, we are able to calculate accurate press movement.
The Lekker switch is a brand from Wooting Technologies and manufactured by Gateron. We use a custom made Hall effect sensor for the Lekker switch. This sensor is well isolated and not easily influenced by other magnets. It is possible to remove the switch from the keyboard and use a north pole magnet in close range to activate the key.
Does the Wootility software work on my system?The Wootility software is a configuration software only, and not required to operate the keyboard. It is compatible with Windows, Linux, and MacOS.
The Analog movement feature on Linux and MacOS is limited to games that support DirectInput. Xinput is a Windows’ proprietary API for Xbox controllers that is not available on other platforms.
Does the Analog input work with all games?Analog movement will only work in games that support either Xinput (Xbox controller) or DirectInput (generic controller). It is not officially supported by game developers, this might cause an unpleasant or unplayable experience. Due to strange GUI button indications or blocking keyboard/mouse input when controller input is detected.
In our experience games that include vehicle control or simulators often provide the best playable options. It often happens that game developers change the state of their games, which might start to or stop to support this type of feature.
This is why we rely on the community to keep track and share with each other their experience and setups. You’re welcome to join our Discord and ask on the #wootabase_profiles channel.
Does Dynamic keystroke work in all games?Yes. Dynamic keystroke is seen as native keyboard inputs. It’s independent from any API, controller support or PC software. You can configure DKS on all your profiles using the Wootility.
Can I really adjust the actuation point between 0.1 to 4.0mm?By default the Wooting two HE will ship with a 0.2mm starting and 0.2mm ending software configurable deadzone. An effective range of 0.3 to 3.8mm. You can remove these dead zones using the Wootility with the caution that you might have an unstable experience.
If your actuation point is 0.1mm, your key will already activate by wiggling the keycap. Without a dead zone of 0.2mm at the end of the press, your input values will change when wiggling the key around. This is simply not practical, but it is very cool.
It truly is the best keyboard out there, i also doubt that anything better will ever release, if you are not sure if you should get it JUST BUY IT
Made this order 30 days ago. Carrier UPS never scanned or pick up the keyboard for shipment. I was told by wooting that Canada shipments just switched to EU store so there is no estimate when it will arrive. After two weeks my order status was automatically changed to "delivered" on wooting website. Meanwhile UPS was saying that they never had a package to deliver. Contacted wooting again and was told that there is a good chance that your package is lost (it wasn't scanned even once) and I can ask for a replacement only after 30 days have passed the original order.
Sure this my first attempt in mechanical gaming keyboards but the impressions are very positive. As with everything nothing is prefect. I will start with the good stuff first.
The build is nice nothing creaks and feels solid and quite heavy in comparison with my previous quite crappy keyboard. Especially loving the plastic rubberized feet. Yet again they feel really sturdy, heavy and solid. PBT keys are ok but were swiftly replaced with Glorious Aura V2 pudding keycaps for better RGB effect. I quite despise all “Christmas tree” RGB builds but on a keyboard it is usefull and quite frankly necessary thing.
Software support is pretty great and the web utility using your browser without any need to install any kind of bloatware. EVERY OTHER COMPANY PLS DO THE SAME ...and even if you install wootility directly it is quite surprising to see program not forcing any startup garbage “in the background” or running spyware. (right Razor?)
The absolutelly best stuff so far is the company care and support for your product and opinions including criticism. Totally unheard of in today's times and corporate machinery greediness.
Another good point is wrist wrest which I've found quite useful and comfy with no chance of compression over time like usual padded magnetic alternatives because it is all made of silicon which also means no sweating whatsoever and super easy cleaning.
The response times in games are so sick you have totall joy and control while playing anything. Even the slight touch of the key may activate it. For gaming 12/10 IMO. Period.
....and now not so good stuff....
Some keys have slight ping sound especially ECS keycap and quite honestly all bordeline/edge caps too. Nothing really annoying and quite honestly I'm nitpicking.
The worst or only OK parts are quite frankly stabilizers - all of them. (I was somehow counting to exchange them anyway after reading some reviews before buying). Also my right Shift key stab was totally stucked right after unpacking my new keyboard. I was worried I had some bad luck like usually but the crappy stabilizer was so loose I had to push it/click it back. Every complain above was solved with 3rd party stabilizers - ZugGear DUROCK Smokey Plate Mount Stabilizer with Gold-Plated Wires (I am not sure I can post direct link so paste the text if you are interested in them) and oh boy what a difference in sound, stability, no ticking, rattling when properly lubed with Krytox 250g0 ...so nice. You have really hard time to get them out once they are in. The difference in tolerancies is huge. I guess you can literally lift up the whole keyboard with ease on one stab...seriously.
YES, another complain about macros. Quite basic feature missing in such techlonogy/software packed board? Nope. Layers are quite amazing as substitute but sometimes the old fasioned way is the key.
I was thinking about the 4 stars rating but my trust to devs continuing is pretty strong based on their ACTIONS not only empty words. Great product that will catapult them on the top of any gamer list easily. Keep up the good work and never turn into something else.
I fondly remember the old IBM slabs, and like everyone else who has tried one again, realised that my memories were rose tinted.
I got into mechanical keyboards late, in the mid 2000's after a long line of freebies and then logitech media keyboards and tended to choose cherry browns, or similar. I liked the tactile feedback. However, my wife did not appreciate the noise, and so I moved onto silent mainstream mechanical keyboards as soon as I possibly could. And from there I slid into custom keyboards as I was never really happy with mainstream quality of feel.
It was about this time that wooting was very much on my radar but I didn't pull the trigger - either I had the money but was enamoured with something else, or I didn't have the money but would sit browsing reviews wishing. I even got so faar as to pre-order the limited edition hall effect launch keyboard that came out a year or two ago, with the yellow and turquoise keycaps as I remember but had to cancel when my son got sick and I needed every penny. Finally, I got the Wooting 2 HE - the stars aligned.
My "greasy panda", every component amongst the most respected of it's kind within the custom keyboard world, lovingly hand built, soldered, tweaked and greased painstakingly over several weeks... it was just another mechanical keyboard and I was distinctly unimpressed. Everyone who tries it raves about it - it's gone to a very good home, don't worry - but the wooting was apparently what I was actually after all this time.
The stars aligned. I had the money, the willingness and no problems and I purchased one. It's incredible. The feel is different to mechanical keyboards, and obviously this is subjective, but to me, it's perfect. I can type or game for hours with no problems, the build quality is top notch. I am very happy. If you are happy with mechanicals, if they seem like the best thing since sliced bread each and every time you upgrade, carry on! But if the latest and greatest never seems to match the hype, maybe get your hands on a wooting for a quick try. It might be what you were after all this time!
It's an excellent keyboard, seems to react faster than my Bloody B975, which used to be the world's fastest according to my research, including the claims of some osu! players. The biggest plus to me is the onboard programmability with double tap and quad function keys (programmable keystrokes on initial actuation, full actuation, partial liftoff, full liftoff of the button), this is unparalleled, the razer and corsair keyboards with onboard memory do not have these features on their onboard memory. I haven't gotten around to messing with the actual analog function.
No macros! No multiple zones. Limited use of special keys. No app associated profile.
Hardware very good. Still, software not good enough but all at reach if developed.
Great, great potential !
Keyboard feels pretty nice to type with, the analog functionality is awesome and the wootility joint is a godsend 🙏
Generally love the keyboard and also the hand rest. The wootility is good, but I would like to see more options to link macros to individual keys. (e.g. sequences of keys) Also it would be very nice to have a microphone mute/unmute function that works with Ms teams.
