NOTE: I bought the first run of this model that had a defective PCB design concerning the number pad 0/INS key.
Overall, now that I'm past the problems, I love this keyboard. The small num pad zero key gets some getting used to, but I love a compact keyboard with a number pad. I've been using TKLs for so long, I forgot how useful it is. I do not like having the bulk of a huge keyboard mainly because it puts strain on your shoulder if you have to mouse a lot (which I sometimes do).
The feel is great, the layout is good (wish it had a dedicated INS key like it does a DEL key). The south facing LEDs are bright, but don't shine through the default keycaps. I've been looking for a good set of south facing shine throughs and nothing yet.
The problem came when I was one of the first people to buy this thing. It came in and I was enraptured with it. Then... I tried to use the number pad 0/INS key. The number pad ./DEL key worked fine. The 0/INS did not. I did a lot of testing and even tried to make my own macro for it.
I contacted Keychron support and ran all sorts of tests, examples, videos for them. I was told I was the first to report this. Then others started reporting it too. I know the default keycaps didn't have the INS / DEL words on them, but it's the standard for keypads and the DEL one worked. Super annoying.
Support said they'd send me a new one. It took several months but they did eventually send me something. A PCB! Now, I'm an engineer and have been a long time. But I did not expect a brand-new keyboard to require me to disassemble it down to the bare bones and replace a PCB. I talked to Support and let them know my disappointment. If it were six months or a year old, fine. But brand new? Just a bit disappointing. I've always gotten amazing service from Keychron. This was a letdown not just get a new keyboard and be expected to replace the PCB? What if I had been an average office worker? Or a student? Not everyone has the tools or time (or skill) to tear a keyboard down to bare metal and replace a PCB safely.
I did get it all done. Everything now works perfectly, and this is now my favorite keyboard. It's really good. If you want to buy one, be sure to get the one with the latest PCB or you'll have to tear it down and replace it yourself.
I previously had a normal K4 and i love the new one, the only thing is that the stabilizers lube work is kinda bad and the space bar was very rattly but after some lube work the K4 pro retakes the perfect productivity keyboard.
KEYCHRON K4 PRO
Very well built keyboard, solid and much quieter than the Coolermaster ck 350 red switch.
I bought it for the office.
The keys feel very solid and typing is very pleasant.
I am very happy with the product, I will also buy one for home.
Everyone, my wife, my two daughters, and myself, in my family all fell in love of the K4 Pro. My 5 year old is learning typing on the web using the keyboard with her tiny hands and fingers. Already looking to get a slim profile one, a K7 Pro maybe, and a Q1 Pro for work...This IS a gateway drug to the custom keyboard world. Be warned.
Okay, so I already own the original Keychron K4 that I use for work. I just recently got a new computer for personal use and wanted to get a nice set-up so of course I go to Keychron because I already love their products. I also own the C2. I was excited to see the Keychron K4 Pro and purchased it right away. It arrived today and I love the feel of it. I love the thockiness of the keys. It sounds so good. Feels like butter. Everything is a yes about this keyboard. Get it. It will not disappoint.
A 96% layout QMK/VIA wireless custom mechanical keyboard
Wireless and Wired
An excellent solution for multitasking. You can connect the K4 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.
Program with QMK & VIA.
QMK/VIA means endless possibilities for a fluid workflow.
Simply connect the K4 Pro to your device with a cable, drag and drop your favorite keys or macro commands to remap any key you want on any system (macOS, Windows, or Linux).
Check out the video above demonstrating how to remap the Light Effect key (located on the K4 Pro’s top right corner) to an Eject key with the VIA software, so you can get a shortcut to put your Mac to sleep (Command-Option-Eject), or even remap the fn key in a breeze. It’s never been so intuitive and flexible to personalize your own keymap.
An ultra-low-power ARM Cortex-M4 32-bit STM32L432 MCU which is powerful, and equipped with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers.
Upgraded Typing Experience
The K4 Pro has been re-engineered and redesigned from the inside out to upgrade the typing experience. The added sound-absorbing foam, a thick silicone dampening bottom pad, and steel plate provide responsive feedback and a peaceful typing sound, while added weight will enhance the stability.
Suitable For All Devices
Offers a Mac layout while still being compatible with Windows, the K4 Pro is one of the few on the market that has the same multimedia and function key functions as Apple keyboards for Mac users, but with more tactile feedback.
You can even configure different keymaps for both Mac and Windows devices. While VIA software is compatible with macOS, Windows, and Linux. Includes keycaps for both macOS and Windows (3 keycaps for each) to allow you to switch between operating systems with ease.

Every detail matters, so we make the K4 Pro hot-swappable for your personalized typing experience. The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can hot-swap every switch on the K4 Pro with almost all of the 3pin and 5pin MX style mechanical switches on the market (including Cherry, Gateron, Kailh, Panda, etc.) without soldering. You can customize your own typing experience in seconds.
The Barebone version (without switch and keycap) is also available at your choice.
Screw-In PCB Stabilizers
Even small part matters for 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 space bar, shift, enter, and backspace. The Keychron K4 Pro also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.
Pre-lubed Keychron K Pro Switch
By optimizing the switch mold, the K Pro switch wobbles less than a standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed process on all the K Pro switches (exclude the clicky ones), no doubt this will ensure the best smoothness at your fingertips when typing.
OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps
To further fine-tune your typing experience, the K4 Pro comes with our unique OSA profile (OEM profile with spherical-angle) and double-shot PBT keycaps that aim to provide a more comfortable fingertip feel with excellent oil resistance for long-term use on the 96% layout.
South-facing RGB Lights
The south-facing RGB is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist’s angle. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference when the user installs Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on their keyboard.
Comes with more than 22 types of RGB backlight settings (as well as a static white backlight option), and 14 types of backlight settings on the White Backlight version. You can further fine-tune the RGB hue, saturation, brightness, effect speed with ease.
Three levels of adjustable typing angle (3º, 7º & 10º) and curved OSA-profile keycaps are all working together to provide long-lasting ergonomic support for your wrist.

The K4 Pro ISO collection comes with fully assembled keyboards with 🇬🇧UK, 🇩🇪German, 🇩🇰🇫🇮🇳🇴🇸🇪Nordic, 🇨🇭Swiss, 🇫🇷French, and 🇪🇸 Spanish layout.
