UNIQUE AND RETRO
The Q60 is a fully customizable mechanical keyboard that has a unique 60% layout. It has a mini design that only keeps the essential keys on the keyboard. However, you can still access any function keys through key combinations. The Q60 comes with a complete aluminum CNC machined body, double-gasket design, and QMK/VIA support, all designed for a minimal desk setup and premium typing comfort.
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 Q60.
Outfitted the unique Q60 board with a retro-style color scheme looks as good in the office as it does in the game room.
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.
Special Extra Keycaps
Q60 is equipped with special extra keycaps, two "System" Keycaps, for the Windows system to better satisfy your needs.
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.
Cherry Profile Dye-Sub PBT Keycaps
Q60 comes in Cherry Profile for a classic feel and features dye-sublimated technology that ensures the legends are beautifully printed on the keycaps, while the legends will not shine or wear out for decades. And it's fully compatible with MX mechanical switches.
Switch layouts between macOS & Windows
Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility with Windows devices, the Keychron Q60 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.
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.
Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch
By optimizing the switch mold, the G Pro switch wobbles less than a standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed process on all the G Pro switches (exclude the clicky ones), no doubt this will ensure the best smoothness at your fingertips when typing.
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, backspace) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron Q60 also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.

This keyboard is my fourth Keychron keyboard. If you ask which of those keyboards is the best, I'd say the Q60 is by far the best. It has one of the best quality among mechanical HHKBs. In particular, it controls the noise that inevitably comes from the keyboard body well. Although I do feel that the price is a bit high, after receiving the product, I thought it was a reasonable price. Should I buy this keyboard? If you're considering an HHKB-style mechanical keyboard, I recommend it.
It's been a week since I started using this keyboard and so far, I'm really impressed!
The keyboard has a solid construction and a sleek, professional appearance. The typing sound is satisfying, and each keystroke feels stable and precise. Overall, I highly recommend this keyboard to anyone looking for a high-quality HHKB-layout keyboard.
Built mine with lubed and filmed 65g Gazzew U4T and GMK keycaps, it sounds and feels amazing.
The firmware from QMK repo compiled perfectly with via layout and the switch at the back of the board makes it really easy to swap layouts depending on the computer you use it on or just for swapping layouts.
The stabs did have a little ticking issue due to the 7u spacebar which was fixed with a holee mod and some dielectric grease.
i used the already installed gaskets, and the pins inside to align the plate are really a nice touch
more colours would be a plus but the off-white greyish one is pretty good for a retro build or something else
overall very good kit, would recommend
Just got mine! Build quality is super nice, went with brown switches, they lubed them decently. Planning on swapping them out for some kiwi's but i might roll with them for a bit. Took me a min to figure out how to remap with VIA as i've always only used QMK. If it doesn't show up in VIA for you make load the keymap json they provide and turn on V2 then go to the board and you'll see it. Only gripe is really with the default mapping there were no arrow keys mapped, but that was easy to correct. Board sounds really good too.
