Keychron Q3 Pro
Meet the Keychron Q3 Pro, a groundbreaking full metal QMK/VIA wireless custom mechanical keyboard. Along with our many premium designs, including double-gasket design, PBT keycaps, screw-in stabs, etc., it will deliver you an unprecedented typing experience!
Q3 Pro Special Edition
The Special Edition provides a unique TKL layout with upgraded designs on an Aluminum knob, extra customizable keys on the left, and more delicate details for your elevated efficiency!
Wireless and Wired
An excellent solution for multitasking. You can connect the Q3 Pro with up to 3 devices wirelessly via its stable Broadcom Bluetooth 5.1 for seamless multitasking across your laptop, phone, and tablet. Switch among them swiftly, and it’s fully compatible with both Mac and Windows. A reliable USB Type-C wired connection is also available when you need it.
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 Q3 Pro.
We designed every component to be able to assemble easily so you can customize and adjust each component with ease to create your ultimate typing experience.
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.
Experience the next level of key sounds and comfort with our gasket mount design together with a flexible PC (Polycarbonate) plate. This design combination 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 Cortex-M4 32-bit STM32L432 chip (MCU) equipped with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is 1000 Hz right out of the box on type-c wired mode (90 Hz on wireless mode), which makes the latency hardly noticeable even in competitive games.
KSA Double-Shot PBT Keycaps
To further fine-tune your typing experience, we designed our unique Keychron spherical-angle (KSA profile) double-shot keycap set with premium non-backlight shine through PBT material, that is oil-resistant and durable for long-term use.
Suitable for All Devices
Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Q3 Pro 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.
Custom Macro Keys
The Q3 Pro Special Edition has four macro keys on the left side. They can be custom and assigned to different actions via the VIA software, simplifying your input and reducing your workload.
Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the aluminum rotary encoder allows you easily customize the knob to your desired key or macro commands like zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.
Using the knob as "zoom in/out"
Program The Q3 Pro with QMK & VIA.
Endless possibilities for a fluid workflow thanks to its ability to remap any key, and create macro commands, shortcuts, or key combinations through the QMK/VIA.
Check out the video above demonstrating how to remap the Home key to an Eject key with the VIA software to create a shortcut to put your Mac to sleep (Command-Option-Eject).
Get the Q3 Pro keymap working on VIA
Since the VIA code for the Q3 Pro is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not yet automatically recognized. Please download the appropriate keymap JSON file below, open VIA, turn on "Show Design tab" on "Settings" tab, and drag the JSON file into the “Design” tab on VIA to get the Q3 Pro keymap working on VIA.
Every detail matters for a personalized typing experience, that’s why we give you the power. You can hot-swap every switch on the Q3 Pro with almost all of the 3pin and 5pin MX style mechanical switches on the market (including Cherry, Gateron, Kailh, Panda, etc.) without soldering required. You can customize your own typing experience in seconds.
*The four macro keys (M1~M4) on the Q3 Pro SE are not hot-swappable.
Comes with 22 types of RGB backlight settings. You can further fine-tune the RGB hue, saturation, brightness, effect speed, and different modes, or even remap these keys with QMK/VIA.
Keychron K Pro Mechanical Switch
By optimizing the switch mold, the Q3 Pro switch wobbles less than the standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed K Pro switches will ensure the best fingertip smoothness. Not to mention the banana switch provides an early tactile bump at the top with a uniquely smooth experience like those Panda switches on the market.
No detail is too insignificant when it comes to your fingertip feel. We’ve integrated the PCB-mounted screw-in stabilizers for a smoother typing experience with less wobbliness on the big keys such as the space bar, shift, enter, and delete keys. You can even customize your favorite stabilizers on your own.

Unreal keyboard. Banana keys ftw
I got the silver grey with K Pro Reds and I love the sound of the keys and switches with the exception of the backspace, L/R shift and space bar keys. They have a very high pitch compared with the other keys.
Other things I didn't like much:
- The knob is not well in the middle, so it scratches one side when I turn it
- The M(acro) buttons are not hot-swappable. Even though I knew this before buying the keyboard, I still think it doesn't make sense and would have been great if they were not soldered.
With the banana switches, this thing is perfect. I honestly might end up buying a silver one as well when it's back in stock. Feels and looks incredible, the bluetooth works perfectly, and there is no chassis ping.
The only nitpick would be that the knob feels slightly wobbly; more than the Q1 knob. That's all, and isn't a big deal.
I recently purchased the Keychron Q3-Pro keyboard, and I must say it has exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I started typing, I knew I had found something truly special. Every keystroke feels responsive and precise, making my typing experience both enjoyable and efficient.
The K Pro banana switches are a delight to type on and provide a satisfying tactile feedback. The stabilizers are excellent, but I still hear a slight ping in some of the larger keys. I will likely need to lube these to enhance their performance. I believe I can achieve an even smoother experience by doing so, but this is by no means an urgent issue. As others have stated, the macro key caps are not standard.
Other than my minor gripes above, the quality is perfection. I really can't imagine finding a finer keyboard. This just feels good, solid, and durable. It exudes premium craftsmanship. Keychron has clearly put a lot of thought and effort into ensuring that their product stands the test of time.
Overall, I couldn't be happier with my purchase. The K Pro banana switches deliver a delightful typing experience, the stabilizers offer excellent performance (with a little lube), and the quality of the keyboard is simply unmatched. If you're in search of a high-quality, reliable, and versatile keyboard, I highly recommend giving the Keychron Q-Pro Series a try. It has certainly earned its rightful place as a 5-star keyboard in my books.
Shipping and delivery were great. I got the fully assembled olive green and the color combination overall is amazing. I'm also starting to like the KSA profile. I'm hoping to see more KSA keycaps in the future.
Lastly, I would like to see more detailed information regarding the macro keys and their switches.
