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 Q10.
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 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.
OSA Profile ABS Backlight Shine-Through Keycaps
To further leverage your typing experience, the Q10 ISO version comes with our unique OSA profile (OEM profile with spherical angle) and ABS backlight shine-through keycaps that aim to provide a more comfortable fingertip feel and a fantastic backlight shine-through effect.
Switch layouts between macOS & Windows
Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Keychron Q10 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.
Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the premium rotary encoder allows you to easily customize your favorite keys and macros on the knob through the VIA software.
You can easily customize the Q10's knob to your desired key or macro commands such as: zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.
Program Q10 with QMK & VIA
With full QMK and VIA support, you can easily program and remap each key on the keyboard. The open-source firmware means endless possibilities for keyboard layouts, shortcuts, backlight effects, even the knob, and more.
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
The optimized molded switch with more precise positioning and less wobble will undoubtedly improve the feel at your fingertips. With the fully assembled Q10 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 Q10 also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.

I used the Keychron K10 for a year now, but wanted to get something without a num pad, and wanted something more ergonomic.
I got the Q10 aluminum base with brown switches and this thing is sturdy and very HEAVY (my guess is about 6lbs). The sheer mass of the keyboard is probably what makes it the best sounding keyboard I have now (thocky ASMR), but I definitely could see how the weight could be an issue for some.
My main dislike, however, is the placement of the keys! The keys are laid out in an upper-case 'Y' shape, which makes proper finger placement very uncomfortable, particularly when your pinky fingers need to reach the P-KEY which is in the furthest corner (also Q and P are not aligned, why?). Because of this odd placement, I have to flare my elbows out away from my body (think chicken dance) so my pinkies can reach the corners- which doesn't feel very ergonomic to me. I want my elbows close to my body, not spread out and leaning forward so my pinky-finger can reach the P-KEY. It's Day-2, and I already feel strain on my forearm and back.
In my opinion, the keys should be laid out in more of a rounded curve, like a lower-case 'm' shape (not 'Y'). The pinky is the shortest finger and shouldn't have to reach for a key in the furthest corner (especially P which is so commonPlace). I really like the Q10, but honestly, if Keychron offered free returns/refunds, I would consider returning this and continue using the k10. (...yes, the P-KEY is bothering me that much)
