I just received my new K8 pro keyboard yestarday and it's my first mechanical keyboard and it's blowing my mind, it's so confortable to type on, wow!
I've been buying over 200$ gaming keyboards by all these "gaming" companies for this one to destroy them all even with a wrist pad at only 160 going balls to the wall. I will only buy Keychron from now on. Keep making the best there is for every day people!
I use both QWERTY and Dvorak layouts, so what I did was I converted the Mac layout to Dvorak, and now I can switch between layouts by toggling the OS switch. I also programmed key combinations to do the switch.
Modifying the layout was very easy, which I appreciated.
The only thing that I didn't like was that the configuration software only provided 4 keyboard layers. I'm not sure if this can be increased, though.
Awesome keyboard, otherwise.
I got the aluminum frame rgb model with brown switches, this thing is such a big upgrade from my dying razer keyboard. I 100% recommend this thing. Have a nice day!
This keyboard makes it so that I -want- to type a review on it. Even if it's just an excuse to type. I've had it for a day now and used it all day yesterday and it is a very comfy experience.
Seriously, this thing is premium. I was gushing the moment I opened the package.
I do recommend a wrist rest as it does sit a little high up, but the ones sold by Keychron are nice and the poured resin one looks great on my desk with it.
I got the browns because I was annoyed by the blues on my old razer blackwidow. I wanted some tactile feedback without being annoyingly loud, and they hit the mark perfectly.
The shipping was incredibly fast too. I usually expect my package to arrive a week-ish after the day they say it will get here, but this came a week early!
I will definitely recommend Keychron to people looking for a new keyboard.
The K8 Pro is the world’s first out-of-the-box QMK/VIA wireless mechanical keyboard paving the way for a new era for mechanical keyboards.
Anyone can master any keys or macro commands through VIA on the K8 Pro. Together with our signature features and upgraded typing sound, the K8 Pro is advancing the typing experience to an entirely new level with endless possibilities.
Wireless and Wired
An excellent solution for multitasking. You can connect the K8 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. Thanks to our engineering team, it's the first time in history that a wireless mechanical keyboard has these kinds of capabilities right out of the box.
Simply connect the K8 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 K8 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 K8 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 K8 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 (4 keycaps for each) to allow you to switch between operating systems with ease.

Every detail matters for a personalized typing experience, that’s why we give you the power. You can hot-swap every switch on the K8 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 delete. The Keychron K8 Pro also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.
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.

OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps
To further fine-tune your typing experience, the K8 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 timeless tenkeyless 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. You can further fine-tune the RGB hue, saturation, brightness, effect speed with ease.
Three levels of adjustable typing angle (3.5º, 7.5º & 10.5º) and curved OSA-profile keycaps are all working together to provide long-lasting ergonomic support for your wrist.

The K8 Pro ISO collection comes with fully assembled keyboards with 🇬🇧UK, 🇩🇪German, 🇩🇰🇫🇮🇮🇸🇳🇴🇸🇪Nordic, 🇨🇭Swiss, 🇫🇷French, and 🇪🇸 Spanish layout.
