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 sound 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 brand new ultra-low-power MCU Arm structure that is powerful and armed with 128K Flash to provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is up to 1000 Hz out of the box, which makes latency non-existent for the competitive game.

OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps

For the new double-shot PBT keycaps, we built a new profile. It has a similar height to the OEM profile and has an SA-like shape. We named it the OSA (OEM spherical angled) keycap. The PBT keycaps will provide excellent oil resistance, enhance the type feel, and prevent the legends from fading out.

Switch layouts between macOS & Windows

Built with the Mac users' experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Keychron Q9 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.

Programmable Knob

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.

Hot-swappable

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.

Note: The Q9's top case has sharper corners to make it much more compatible with third-party keycaps.

Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro & Keychron K Pro Switches

By optimizing the switch mold, these Pro switches wobbles less than the standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed switches will ensure the best fingertip smoothness. Not to mention the K Pro banana switch provides an early tactile bump at the top with a uniquely smooth experience like those Panda switches on the market.

Note: The Gateron G Pro Switches are mounted on the Q9 Fully Assembled Version, while the Keychron K Pro Switches are on the Q9 Plus Fully Assembled Version.

All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers

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 Q9 also supports third-party stabilizers, including Cherry or Durock.

ANSI & ISO layouts

ISO layout is widely used in Europe while the ANSI layout is widely used by the rest of the world.

Note: If you are a European, we recommend you purchase the "Barebone ISO” version with the corresponding ISO keycaps. The "Barebone ISO” is suitable for all ISO keyboard countries like the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, etc.
