Connect the keyboard with up to 3 devices via Bluetooth or to a single device with the USB Type-C wired option. Pair it up with your smartphone, laptop and iPad, and switch amongst the devices swiftly, that is best for home, office and light gaming uses.
Keychron is one of the few mechanical keyboards that features macOS media keys (F1 to F12) in a Mac layout with the same as conventional Mac systems.
“It stands out from the crowd with its design.” - TNW
“I had a very specific set of needs: Wireless. Arrow keys. No numpad. Mac compatible. Backlit. Found this Keychron K2.” - MKBHD
1) Spare WIN Keycap received broken.Replacement request was made through customer support and accepted.
2) No consistency in keypad response, even between like keys---ENTER, SHIFT and one of the CONTROL keys had a really bad squeak right out of the box.
3) Having issues with bluetooth staying connected
4) Purchase Order ios for the v3 keybaord, I received a v2
5) Keys are way to easy to press, resulting in neighboring keys being pressed when not intended to be
6) v3 features are not all working, even after several attempts to reflash firmware
I have bought the V1 about a year ago, and I have immediately noticed an issue with the keyboard that a keypress was triggered without pushing the key to the way down to the bottom. In version 3, they have fixed it and I am glad that they listened to customers' opinions!
But there's still 1 final touch regarding the space bar that when the key was pressed too often, the keycap got distorted, but it could easily be fixed (and I have suggested a very simple solution to them about that). Hopefully, we would have a perfect keyboard from them someday!
This keyboard is everything I wanted.
Received my K1 today - shipping to Canada was actually quite reasonable given the difficult situations around the world right now. Connecting to my Mac is a no brainer, and it started to click clack right away. For a moment I kinda regret that I got the blue switches, which are SO loud. After 10 or 15 minutes, I think I'm used to it now. Like the aluminum body and low profile keys. I personally like the thoughtful design and function of screenshot and Siri keys, as they could really improve work efficiency. Also I switch between iPad Pro and MacBook a lot, and it is super easy to do so. One thing I would like to have though is an adjustable height. Everything is almost perfect with this keyboard. Good work Keychron!
No comment needed. Five star !!
Awesome solution for wireless bluetooth and wired for gaming. I got the red switches for quieter operation, and they truly are very quiet. No louder than my rubber dome keyboard or my MacBook Pro. I tried it, and it works both with Windows and Mac. Only part I hate is that there is no software to make modification including RGB colors. So RGB lights don't match my computer lights and it's driving my OCD crazy. Aside from that, really like it!
Been using this for almost a year now, with a blue switch model.
- Solid Build
- Wired and Bluetooth with 3 slot of Bluetooth memory for easy switching.
- Good battery.
- Like the clicky sound.
- Annoying intermittent miss register / double register of key strokes. Started all fine, but as times goes by, more and more keys having issues. Especially annoying when the miss occur on ctrl key.
- RGB lighting effect kind of dull after a while. No way to customize it.
I love this keyboard, and so does everyone who tries it out at my place. I've purchased 2 of them already, and about to pull the trigger on a 3rd one (though I'm tempted to try out the new K6). In fact, if I were the kind of person who panic-buys during global crisis situations like we're having now, I'd be the guy stockpiling Keychron K1 keyboards, not toilet paper like everybody else.
Product is good, but I seem not to use it as much. Especially since it's height (even with the wrist support) is too high. Would it be possible to have a refund?
Having not owned or used a mechanical keyboard before this one I took much time deliberating over my switch choice; after spending many hours listening to YouTube videos trying to decide which click I wanted, I opted for the Gateron Browns and they are perfect. Lovely sound and feel to add to the full house of perfectly functioning features.
I use the K2 with my MacBook and iMac via bluetooth and my custom built (bluetooth-less) windows machine via the USB-C to USB-A cable using the side switch to specify the system to which I am inputting.
I cannot recommend this product highly enough. Thank you Keychron!
I bought K1 a month back. I just received a couple of K2. The K2 keys are closer to each other which is matter of getting use to. K2 brings back the typing experience when I was using those IBM keyboards, really. Great job in delivering the keyboards and great product to use. Still deliberating to use my K1 or K2.
So I bought this as a trial to see how the PBT keycaps would suit the board and was immediately impressed with how it felt even more premium. I prefer the slightly matt feel to the key caps from my other K2 which are ABS. The texture of the PBT makes a significant difference to the feel of the board and the way one interacts with it.
I think Keychron should adopt the PBT key caps throughout the range to be honest, highly recommended.
My K4 is absolutely a joy to use. Love the tactile feel compared to any Mac keyboard. Reminds me of my Macintosh SE. The backlight is very bright and the different patterns are a fun option to have. My only two gripes: 1) I wish Keychron offered replacement keycaps in more colourways, because I find the default colours lack enough contrast. 2) It’s rather difficult to find 3rd party keycaps for the 96% layout, especially backlit ones. Otherwise I love the product and am thinking of getting another one for my daughter.
Make a K2 low profile, 84 keys, wireless, backlit. Low profile, our wrists deserve this
It is amazing.
I have this keyboard for 5 days. I work mostly at my computer to type text.
I own several good keyboards, including topre switches, das keyboard, etc.
For now, it feels that it is the best keyboard I own. Small, portable, with all the keys. I haven't try bluetooth mode yet, it is not one of my priorities. I have chosen optical clicky switches, and they feel great. They are a little noisy, but that is not a problem for me....
Really good product, feels better than the Logitech K840 I use at work, the brown switches are lighter and smoother on the fingers, being crispy without creating much noise of fatigue. I've been using it a lot lately coding at home (due to the biggest trouble the world is having now...), and it is a great enjoyment to use. I would definitely say the PBT keycap version is of great value as it's much more durable and I personal prefer its distinct aesthetics both in color and font, and the thickness is not much of a problem for me as I have relatively big hands. The only improvement I can think of is to make another version with aluminum frame and PBT keycaps
The K2 was an unexpected gem, the tactile response and key travel are pleasant with far less back-pressure than I have experienced in comparable configurations (Razer, CT, etc.). A pleasure to use.
This is my third purchase of Keychron products, and just as quality a product as my others. Keychron products are my go-to mechanical keyboard solution for work, office and recreational use.
The keyboard is great and works well on Linux. There is a keychron linux group on Facebook.
However, the keyboard chest is very high. I would suggest using the keyboard with a wrist pad.
I got the blue switch version, and they are great to type on as the are tactile, clicky but not obnoxiously loud like MX blues. The keyboard feels very sold too, and the white backlighting is very bright. Bluetooth mode worked well on both Windows and Linux. I wish that the keyboard came with height adjustable feet, and the caps lock lit up green when activated.
Just got scammed after 1 year of waiting for a non-existent product
I really, really love this keyboard! It's quiet (I got the blue switches), the lights are great, there are so many modes you can flip through, and it looks and feels lovely on my desk. The only improvement I can see is adding risers so you can have it at an angle. I ended up getting tiny laptop wedges that work for the keyboard too, so it's at an angle when I type. Otherwise, it's perfect!
Fast delivery and items delivered in gd condition.
Bought the blue switch version. Overall is a good low-profile keyboard. Amazing typing experience, great RGB effect, and no connectivity problem so far.
Some advice hopefully would get implemented for the next version:
1. The current key cap material is probably ABS which leaves a lot fingerprints and gets greasy easily. Would recommend with to a better-quality key cap (e.g. PBT)
2. Get a bigger battery! 2k W is not enough!
Shipment: I'm surprised that the keyboard arrived just 2 days after order! Of course, I'm in Hong Kong :)
The keyboard: Works as expected. Worth the value. My keyboard wired to PC while BT to a raspberry pi board. Only issue is that BT to linux box breaks NUM key. My workaround is:
echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode
Hope this help someone.
Keychron K4 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard
Keychron K2 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard
with discount 15% , cheap price and fast delivery. absolutely beast product, keep it up with the current product . thanks
I've had a couple of portable USB hubs with pass-thru power and what's great about this one - apart from the neat styling - is that it doesn't get red-hot like some of them do. Like others I might like a USB-C-out port and I haven't used VGA for years - but this does exactly what I need when travelling with my MacBook. A nice piece of kit
Keyboard switches are total crap. They catch the event way before the “click” (blue switches). Bluetooth and cable connection have issues with input. Sometimes not seeing any input but mostly when you write it registers false repeated input like:
“Heeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyy ttttttthis is hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhoooooooooooooow it looks”
Total bullshit and scam. Other models are the same.
What is offered in return a warranty, where you need to cover cost of sending to China (when you live in this part then ok) for me this is a cost of 20% of keyboard price, or staying with the shitty hardware and giving you coupon to buy another shitty hardware...

Keychron K1 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard (Version 3)
Over all Good but I want more Keycaps other profiles SA, Mt3, or MG will be Excellent and double short.
It is great for programming, the brown switch gives a perfect balance between control and sound. It lets you feel the keystroke without making too much noise. The body is well built and feels pretty solid, the keycaps give a nice grip on touch. Great choice!
Best Keyboard Ever
