Keychron Q6 is a premium full-size and all-metal mechanical keyboard. With its all-metal CNC machined body, a full-size layout, double-gasket design, QMK/VIA support, and knob option, the Q6 meets all your practical needs and gives you a high-end typing experience.
A Refined Piece of Metal Art
The entire metal body is crafted with 6063 aluminum that is processed through CNC machined, polished, anodized, sandblasted, and undergoes 24 more manufacturing stages to make this solid metal piece of art that is the Q6.
All-around customizable keyboard
To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component easily assembled. Therefore, you can customize and adjust each component you want.
Double Gasket Design
The Double Gasket Design is a new innovative structure in the industry. In addition to the gaskets on the plates, we added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases to significantly reduce the acoustic resonance between the metals and reduce the noise of the impacted metals. This design allows the keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and improves the overall typing sound.
An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard
A powerful ultra-low-power ARM architecture MCU equipped with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is 1000 Hz right out of the box, which makes the latency hardly noticeable even in competitive games.
OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps
For the new double-shot PBT keycaps, we built a new profile. It has a similar height to the OEM profile and has an SA-like shape. We named it the OSA (OEM spherical angled) keycap. The PBT keycaps will provide excellent oil resistance, enhance the type feel, and prevent the legends from fading out.
Switch layouts between macOS & Windows
Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Keychron Q6 comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You can now save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system.
Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the premium rotary encoder allows you to easily customize your favorite keys and macros on the knob through the VIA software.
You can easily customize the Q6's knob to your desired key or macro commands such as: zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.

The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can install or change the switches without soldering. The PCB supports both 3 pin and 5 pin MX mechanical switches.
South-facing RGB LED Lights
The south-facing RGB LED is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist’s angle with the premium non-shine-through PBT keycaps installed. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference when the users install OEM or Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on the keyboard.
Note: The Q6's top case has sharper corners to make it much more compatible with third-party keycaps.
Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch
The optimized molded switch with more precise positioning and less wobble will undoubtedly improve the feel at your fingertips. With the fully assembled Q6 version fitted with factory pre-lubricated Gateron G Pro switches, a smoother travel experience is guaranteed for you.
All New Screw-in PCB Stabilizers
The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easier for changes and upgrades. Precise craftsmanship makes the stabilizers more stable and less shaky. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron Q6 also supports third-party stabilizers, including Cherry or Durock.
Looking for ISO Layout?
The Q6 ISO collection comes with fully assembled keyboards with 🇬🇧UK, 🇩🇪German, 🇩🇰🇫🇮🇳🇴🇸🇪Nordic, 🇨🇭Swiss, 🇫🇷French, and 🇪🇸 Spanish layout, and the “Barebone ISO" option is suitable for all ISO countries (e.g.: 🇮🇹Italy, 🇵🇹Portuguese, 🇭🇺Hungary, etc.) to build their keyboard with keycaps in their preferred languages and switches.

the space bar is pressed way too easy on my G6 with Gateron G Pro Red switches. This problem results in unwanted spaces between my typed te x t like t his
Kechron makes some of the best keyboards. The Q6 offers a superb typing experience. When I recommend a keyboard to other users I will always recommend Keychron as their first choice. Whether or not you modify the keyboard is up to you. It sounds great right out of the box. The build quality is the highest you will find anywhere. The heavy weight ensures that this keyboard will never move on your desk.
I ordered my Q6 with the Gateron G Pro Brown switches. Previously, I was using a high-end keyboard with blue switches from another manufacturer. Although I really liked the sound of the blue switches, the change to brown switches has been excellent. I thought that I would always use a keyboard with blue switches, but using the Q6 has changed my mind.
The user manual is well written and easy to follow. The basic tools provided with the Q6 enable a user to modify the keyboard as desired. If you plan to make several changes, I recommend ordering dedicated tools available on the website.
As a software developer I was appalled by the VIA software. This is truly the worst software for programming keyboards. It reminds me of visiting a 1990’s website. Garish colors, user unfriendly interface, no built-in documentation. In short, it is absolutely awful and not worth using. Hopefully, Keychron will release their own dedicated application in the future.
wow, what an amazing keyboard, I received it today and used it for work. Love!!!!!! if your wondering if you should spend the money do it! You will not regret it at all. It arrived undamaged and early too. I live in the US and received it in about a week or so. Fast shipping. I have keycaps coming in the mail to make it my own, however the keycaps that come with it feels pretty nice too. Buttery typing smooth as silk. Thanks Keychron ! Will be ordering from you again.
What a terrific experience from start to ongoing. I heard about Keychron through glowing reports from two of my clients. The website was easy, clean and clear. I found the product I liked, the price was good, I was told my keyboard would arrive in 5 days (Australia). 3 days later it arrives on my doorstep - nice. And then it is just the best keyboard I have ever had my hands on. Heavy! The keyboard feels great to type on -really good feel to the keys, has a nice sound but not too loud (good thocc? idk I just learnt that word but I guess yes?) and looks very smart sitting on my desk. I couldn't be happier. Ty Keychron. Full marks.
This was my first mechanical keyboard ever- after some research I found the internet hyping over this one so I thought "why not" because it matches my requirements (fullsize, hot swappable and sturdy). After I received it it was clear this is the creme de la creme for enthusiasts, even though I'm kinda lost in the qmk/via functions I'm already super satisfied with the use and feel of this keyboard. Looking back, I maybe should have chosen a keyboard with a lighter weight considering I work as a data analyst with a hybrid work from home/office schedule. I'm so happy with this keyboard that I work from home more often! Maybe the K series is a good addon for travelling to the office...
