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 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 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 (Optional)

We also provide a hot-swappable version for your choice, which means you can customize your typing experience without soldering, pop them in and it's done. 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.

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

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.

Gateron G Pro Switch Features

Keychron K Pro Banana switch provides an early tactile bump at the top with a uniquely smooth experience like those Panda switches on the market.

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 13 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.

Value for money, Keychron K8 Pro (Brown switches)

Keychron K8 pro is my second mechanical keyboard. Typing is very addictive using this keyboard. The feel we get using Gateron brown pro switches is too good. The sound and feel of the keys while typing on this keyboard gives a very pleasing experience. I know now that my next keyboard, if I buy, will also be from Keychron.

First mechanical keyboard, great feel, not great keycap fonts

This is my first mechanical keyboard (much less first custom keyboard) and I'm pretty impressed with it already! I'm used to a very flat Macbook Air keyboard, so i'm still getting used to the high keycaps and making lots of mistakes - but the feeling of typing is so consistent and smooth (I got the red switches). It's a really heavy keyboard, since I opted for the aluminum frame, which isn't an issue for me so far since it lives on my desk.
The only issue I have so far is the font on the base set keycaps; for the Enter, backspace, shift, etc keys, the letters are unevenly printed and not the same font size & thickness as the qwertry keys. It's a little disappointing that the keycaps don't look very good, hence the 4/5 rating, so I'm waiting on some custom keycaps to arrive to replace them.

A fantastic keyboard for it’s price, great feel, great sound, limited keycap choices and RGB ligh...

I am extremely pleased with this keyboard. I love the solid Thock sound associated with this board. The shape and feel of the keycaps is excellent and the weight and solidity exceeded my expectations. The Gateron pre lubed brown switches don’t seem to have a distinct tactile press but still feel great.

The reason it’s a 4/5 and not a 5 is that I got the RGB lighting, but the keycaps do not allow the light to shine though the letters and Keychron does not offer a double shot Pbt keycap that has transparent letters. The lighting controls are limited to a certain number of preprogrammed patterns and does not give you key by key lighting controls. (This isn’t really a big deal, but my far inferior Steelseries apex 7 had fantastic control over lighting and transparent letters in inferior abs plastic) I simply like a cobalt blue color and while I seem to be able to make all the lights red, I have not figured out how to make them all blue. The lighting makes it impossible to see what key I’m about to hit in a dark room (frequent for me) and required that I install a small led light above the keyboard and having the RGB off. I am struggling to find a high quality keycap that is DS. PBT with see through letters. I wish there was better descriptions on the Keychron site that explained what the difference's are in aluminum plates other than what I think are different color keycaps. I would love to know why many of their keycap offerings are not compatible with my new Q8 Pro. That being said, If you want a fantastic keyboard that is solid, quiet and has a great feel with the pre lubed Gateron switches and bluetooth connectivity at a sub $200 This is a Fantastic choice.
