PORON Plate Foam

M1W is equipped with PORON plate foam, effectively reducing the noise generated by key switches, ensuring a purer and more comfortable tactile sound experience for the keyboard.

Polycarbonate Plate

M1W utilizes a transparent PC plate to offer flexibility surpassing that of metal, while also reducing low-frequency resonance.


Plate-mounted Stabilizers

M1W barebone utilizes purple plate-mounted stabilizers, which effectively minimizes keycap wobbling. In addition, it also comes with a separate TPU Double-shot stabilizers to cater to the diverse preferences of users.

3mm PORON Case Foam

MonsGeek M1W has undergone an upgrade, transitioning to Poron case foam with superior elasticity compared to M1.

*Disclaimer: Using thicker foam may reduce flex, whether to include it or not is down to your personal preference


VHB Insulation Layer

A VHB insulation layer has been added to the bottom case in order to prevent any short-circuit issues. It’s rare for these issues to occur but we want to add extra protection.


Accessories to Play With

Extra teflon pads included for users who wish to perform a force break mod.

Extra tape for users who wish to perform a tape mod.

MonsGeek includes a 3mm PORON foam for a balanced feeling. Disclaimer: the foam will affect the overall sound profile and flex.


Optional Plates to consider


For users who want a balanced feeling between sound and flex.



For the softest, flexiest typing feeling out of the three.

    Hi I bought the M1W Barebone but I got only the keyboard and the instructions, I can’t use the 2.4 connectivity because it doesn’t come with anything help, the keyboard serves well.

    • MonsGeek

      Hello Cesar, it is just a kind reminder that keyboard accessories including the 2.4G Wireless Receiver, are placed next to the M1W or Inside the compact black box. If you are unable to locate them, please feel free to email our customer support team for assistance. Thanks for your patience!

    • MonsGeek

      Hello Finn, kindly note that the M1W Barebone already includes pre-installed plate-mounted stabilizers and a Poron plate foam, so there’s no need to purchase them separately.
