Not bad

Keyboard is a little too high and seems to require a wrist rest of some sort. Rgb lighting is only-south facing. When putting on other keycaps you can barely see the rgb.

K8 Pro

Keychron K8 Pro QMK/VIA Wireless Mechanical Keyboard Fully assembled or Barebone version

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 keyboard keys or macro commands through VIA on a wireless keyboard. 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.

Features of Keychron K8 Pro QMK VIA Wireless mechanical keyboard

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 literally 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 the video above demonstrating how to remap a Light Effect key on the top right corner of the K8 Pro keyboard to Eject key with 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.

The video below demonstrates how to create a macro command of a screenshot (Shift-Command-4) on macOS, so you can take a screenshot with a single key.

A brand new ultra-low-power Arm Cortex-M4 32-bit STM32L432 MCU which is powerful, and armed with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers.

Get the keymap working on VIA

Since the VIA code for the K8 Pro is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not automatically recognized yet. Please download the keymap JSON file below. Connect your keyboard and device with the provided cable, and toggle the switch to cable mode. Open VIA, click on the "Show Design tab" on the "Settings" tab. Drag the JSON file into the “Design” tab on VIA to get the K8 Pro keymap working on VIA.

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 when the K8 Pro lay on the desk.

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.

Hot-swappable

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 required. 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. You can even customize it with alternative stabilizers such as Cherry or Durock.

Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch

The renowned Gateron G Pro switch comes with an optimized mold, more precise positioning, less wobbliness, and factory pre-lube will certainly improve your fingertip feel. A smooth travel experience is guaranteed with up to 50 million keystroke lifespan.

Typing sound test of the K8 Pro with Gateron G Pro switches and OSA profile double-shot PBT keycaps.

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 19 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.

Ergonomic Support

Three levels of adjustable typing angle (0º, 6º & 9º), an inclined bottom frame, and curved OSA-profile keycaps are all working together to provide long-lasting ergonomic support for your wrist.
