Depending on our workload volume at the time of fulfillment, we may choose to use a third party fulfillment service to deliver the Zoom65 V2: EE to you for a quicker delivery time. Please do not order any other in-stock items with your Zoom 65 V2: EE as the fulfillment service will not have them at hand
Canadian customers - please do not choose Xpresspost as a shipping method. Each Zoom 65 V2: EE comes with a battery packed inside but not installed in kit. Canada Post does not allow such items to be shipped using Xpresspost
You cannot add any in-stock items to your order as we cannot guarantee its availability when the group buy is ready to ship.
You cannot combine this group buy order with a previous order as we cannot hold on to an order until the other one arrives.
You may modify your order until the group buy ends on February 13, 2023
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address associated with your order and list the changes you'd like to see made.

Zoom65 V2: Essential Edition will be imported from China into Canada via two separate shipping methods:
Arrives to Canada via a ship. Takes 45-70 days in transit. This is the standard import method used in most keyboard / deskmat group buys. It's much cheaper than Air Express but takes much longer to arrive.
All units ordered via Ocean Freight are scheduled to ship out of Meletrix around April, 2023 and should arrive at Mech.land around late May, 2023.
Arrives to Canada via a cargo airplane, takes 7-15 days in transit. This import method is very expensive, as such some of the items brought over via Air Express have a markup added to cover the extra expenses
All units ordered via Air Express are scheduled to ship out of Meletrix around April, 2023 and are expected to arrive to us in the same month.
You cannot combine Ocean Freight and Air Express items in the same order. Each individual order has to contain either all Ocean Freight or all Air Express items. This is because they arrive at different times
Please keep in mind the ETA is just our best guess according to the information currently available to us. Unexpected issues and delays can happen at every stage of the process.

Zoom65 V2: EE Features
Zoom 65 V2: EE uses a gasket isolation mount structure for a soft, bouncy and pleasant typefeel that won't fatigue your fingers even after hours of typing. Gasket mount keyboards sound better and feel more even throughout the board than the typical off-the-rack tray mount keyboards.
Unlike traditional keyboards, you are not stuck with just one layout on Zoom 65 V2: EE! Change things up every now and then with split backspace, left shift and spacebar! You can also switch between normal and stepped caps lock or ANSI.
The Bluetooth PCB is fully compatible with VIA, the powerful GUI widely renowned for it's customizability and ease of use. Re-map any key on the keyboard on 4 different layers, including the knob. Use built in powerful shortcuts and macros, or define your own!
Use your Zoom 65 V2: EE with your PC, laptop, tablet or even your phone - all without any wires. Enjoy a fast, lag free experience thanks to Bluetooth 5.0. Plug in an USB-C cable to charge the battery or to use the keyboard in wired mode. A 2250 mAh Li-ion battery is included with every kit.
Upgraded Case Finish Treatment
All case colors except GT Silver are electrostatic coated like previous Zoom65 EE, but they are more delicate and smoother.
GT Silver, due to its special color is nano coated like Zoom TKL series, which is very similar to anodized aluminum process.
The gasket sleeves are made of supercritical foam, it can stabilize the plate as the same time giving appropriate space allowing it to flex in a balanced way. Just the right softness, not too stiff, not too much flex.
Zoom65 V2: EE PCB features Kailh Hot Swap sockets that allow you to just push the switches on, no soldering required! Changing switches is a breeze, you can go from linear to tactile in a matter of minutes, all on the same keyboard!
WS Stabilizers V3
For the first time ever per-key RGB makes an appearance in the Zoom series. Zoom65 EE V2 provides a wide range of colors and effects for a different visual experience, and RGB lights can be used in both wired and Bluetooth mode, allowing you to turn on the lights anytime, anywhere.
Optional Internal Weight
Take your keyboard to the next level with an internal SS weight, sold separately. It weighs about 234 grams.
In order to reduce resonance, many tests were done on the foaming material of the Zoom Zoom65 V2: EE. Meletrix made the new PORON lighter and denser, as a result they make the keyboard sound more concentrated and deeper than stock settings.
Plates in other materials, such as brass, aluminum and FR4, can be sold as add-on accessories, and they dramatically change the feel and sound of the keyboard
Zoom65 V2: EE comes with almost everything you need to put together your first keyboard, including an USB-C cable, premium WS stabilizer v3 and a carrying case. All you need to get are switches and keycaps of your choice and you're all set!
