It is characterized by its unique sculpted design, which features a scooped-out center and raised edges.

What makes MOA different from the rest is the level of comfort your fingertips feel at the touch of the keycaps. The sculpted profile of MOA keycaps helps to elevate comfort, even during long periods of typing. The sculpted profile also makes it easier to find and press the correct keys, which can lead to improved typing speed and accuracy (FYI, sculpted profiles have a slight angle to avoid overstretching your fingers). Additionally, the deep curvature of each profile adds a touch of stability and comfort while typing. Your fingers may feel as if they are stroking marshmallows rather than keycaps on a mechanical keyboard.

MOA vs Cherry Profile
Now, I know what you're thinking: What can I gain from using this profile compared to the rest, especially the all-time-favorite Cherry profile? Cherry Profile keycaps can be found on almost all the generic mechanic keyboards. It has a pronounced curve, which makes it feel comfortable to type on. They are a good choice for typists who want a comfortable typing experience and a more premium look and feel for their keyboard. They are made from high-quality materials and are often double-shot molded, which means that the legends are printed on the keycaps rather than being stickers. However, MOA profile provides all that, and more! The comfort felt on your fingertips are on another level with the MOA profile. The illustration below displays the comparison of Cherry and MOA profile.

Note: Cherry profile keycaps range from 0.8-1.5mm thickness.
The quality assurance of the MOA Profile is evident with a standardized keycap thickness of 1.5mm. Referencing from the illustration above, the curvature of the MOA profile is clearly visible, indicating the increased comfort and ergonomic design of the profile. However, this does not mean that the Cherry profile is less comfortable, it merely implies the comfort is based on the curvature of the keycaps. Ultimately, the judgment is made based on individual preference.
