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 itís 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). It's never been so intuitive and flexible to personalize your own keymap. 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.

Program the K8 Pro 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 and more.

To get started, please follow these steps: Download the appropriate kemap JSON file below, open VIA, turn on 'Show Design tab' on 'Settings' tab, drag the JSON file into the 'Design' tab on VIA to get the K8Pro keymap working on VIA.

Since the VIA code for the K8 Pro is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not yet automatically recognized, so you will need to manually download and enter the K8 Pro keymap.


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.

Every detail matters for a personalized typing experience, thatís 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.

Screw-In PCB Stabilizers
Even small part matters for your fingertip feel. Weíve 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.

OSA Profile ABS Backlight Shine-Through Keycaps
To further leverage your typing experience, the K8 Pro ISO version comes with our unique OSA profile (OEM profile with spherical angle) and ABS keycaps that aim to provide a more comfortable fingertip feel and a fantastic backlight shine-through effect.

South-facing White LED's
The south-facing white LED's are designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typistís angle. The south-facing white LED's are also free from interference when the user installs Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on their keyboard. Comes with more than 13 types of white backlight settings as well as a static white backlight option. You can further fine-tune the brightness and effect speed with ease.

Great keyboard, does everything it says wonderfully and no complaints
  Ash  04/11/2023
This is such a great keyboard; I bought it to use at a new job doing programming and wanted something better than my old membrane keyboard, and wasn't too excited over the Logitech mechanical options for productivty (namely price).

QMKVIA is amazing, I've used it to rebind a few keys and add additonal Fn options; little tip you can assign F13-F24 and use them for single key shortcuts in apps without having to bother with macros!

In fact, this keyboard was so fun and nice to use I ordered a second (the aluminium wrapped version) for home which I use for a mix of programming AND gaming; you can keep it on wireless for most things or casual games and just go wired for competitive games.

Having been a Filco user for a few users, this was an interesting upgrade. The brown switches feel slightly different compared to the Filco browns but still familiar and comfortable. The keycaps are again a different finish - they feel a little more grippy which is not unpleasant.

The main reason for the upgrade has been to try the QMK/VIA functionality, and this has worked really well for my use case, to assign macros to keys for lengthy commands.

Overall, an excellent upgrade and great service from KeyboardCo as always.

Considering I spend over 8 hours a day typing, coding, gaming, I honestly don't know why it has taken me so long to invest it a quality keyboard! The Keychron K8 Pro is my entry into high-end keyboards, and wow! Just WOW! The Gateron brown switches are beautiful and smooth with just the right feedback without a load click. The keycaps are great and feel good when typing. The build quality of the aluminium body is excellent. I really can fault this keyboard.

I'd also like to say that the team at Keyboard Co are brilliant... I messed up my order, but they quickly resolved it so that I would still receive my order the next day.

I'd highly recommend both the Keychron K8 Pro and The Keyboard Co to anyone!

I bought this to switch between wired on my personal Windows PC and bluetooth on my work Mac Pro.

I was concerned about potential issues with bluetooth reliability, drop outs, connectivity etc... but can say that with the latest bluetooth and keyboard firmwares, it's been perfect. I can seamlessly switch between the two devices and the dedicated WindowsMac mode slider is a fantastic addition.

My only gripe is that the board is tall and will require a wrist wrest, otherwise it gets tiring. I wish it was a little flatter, like my existing Filco Majestouch 2.

Other than that, fantastic board and happy with the brown switches as an all rounder.

Love the keyboard, so smooth and clacky. Solid deal too!

As a US-based ISO user, I also appreciate thekeyboardco, have been coming back for many years at this point.

Brilliant keyboard with good functionality and high quality feel. The main feature that makes me gives this keyboard 5 stars, is that the keys are placed perfectly to minimise typos and encourage fast & accurate typing.

I am new to the compact form factor, but this has advantages of a smaller footprint allowing more space on desk.

I am generally pleased with the K8 Pro, I use it as a multi -device for a Mac & PC.
