The Q4 is a mini custom all-metal keyboard ideal for a variety of situations and will upgrade your typing experience. With full aluminum CNC machined body, double-gasket design, and QMK/VIA support, the Q4 is the ultimate choice for the mini keyboard.
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 Q4.
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 brand new ultra-low-power MCU Arm structure that is powerful and armed with 128K Flash to 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 Q4 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.
Note: The Q4'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 Q4 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 Q4 also supports third-party stabilizers, including Cherry or Durock.
Looking for ISO Layout?
The Q4 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.

If you're just getting into the hobby or just want to buy a really solid mechanical keyboard and not go down that rabbit hole, the Q series is where I point people. These keyboards rival low-mid custom keyboards. The Q series gets you the option for custom programming with QMK to learn to use layers and hot swap sockets to try out different switches. This is an amazing way to get into mechanical keyboards with a seriously solid keyboard (literally - it weighs 3.3lbs!) with the ability to customize. I'm very happy with this and I own several custom mechanical keyboards and the Q4 is still in the rotation.
Overall I'm very happy with the Q4 keyboard's quality and feel, though trying to customize it with via has been a bit of a process since the Via software is no longer available for download since they moved to a chrome based website (not sure on the technical name, but now you go to a website instead of downloading a software) and the website does not support the Q4 even after flashing. If not for the software bit this keyboard would get a 5 star rating though.
Incredible sound and feel. Zero complaints about the board, but the included cable is quite cheap, and the flat rate shipping is pretty steep.
sounds amazing, feels amazing , couldn't ask for anything more
I got the Q4 for writing and I could not be happier with this keyboard. The build quality is superior to anything in my experience. Keychron hit it out of the park with this one.
This is the 2nd Keychron after the K2 & K8. I look forward to watching the development of your product line.
