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.

Hot-swappable
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 RGB Lights
The south-facing RGB is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typistís 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 (0, 6 & 9 degrees), an inclined bottom frame, and curved OSA-profile keycaps are all working together to provide long-lasting ergonomic support for your wrist.

My first keychron board, and I'm very impressed, the build quailty is excellent, and the foam damping, and the pre-lubed brown switches are quiet, but still have a satisfactory clickyness, my only complaint would be that the feedback of the tactile switches could be more pronouced to me it seems very mild, but with the highly customisable nature of the keyboard, this is more of a nitpick than anything else as the switches and caps can be replaced.

I've been using my K8 Pro for a week now. I have several other keyboards and this is one of my favourites.

The RGB lighting looks nice for 2 minutes but is usually switched off. It has a steady on mode that uses a soft red, which I use if working or playing games in dim light.

I use the cabled mode to my gaming PC and the Bluetooth during the day with my ThinkPad. Both work extremely well with no noticeable lag when using with Bluetooth.

The keyboard came with a full International ISO Mac layout and all the keys needed to convert to ISO UK layout for use with Windows or Linux. I use an old Keychron K1 with an iPad when travelling and nice to know I could switch over to this one if ever I wanted to.

Overall for the price I am happy with it, at over £100 it's certainly not cheap but the build quality is good and the only nitpick is that my F12 key was printed upside down! It doesn't affect functionality at all so I can't be bothered to seek a remedy, but might upset some people who like things to be 'correct'.

My existing mechanical keyboards are too rattly for use in a shared office so I ordered this Keychron K8 Pro (brown switches) which promised to have better noise control - and it has! I am very happy with the build quality, feel, sound and features. Plus, it looks great in a striking colour scheme with the main typing keys in blue-grey and the ancillary keys in charcoal grey - and a salmon coloured ESC key as a little extra flourish! I wasn't really looking for illumination, but it's nice to have with plenty of different colour schemes.

As always, the team at Keyboard Co were helpful with my pre-order questions and efficient with dispatch.

Not my first mechanical by a long way. This replaces a K6 as my desktop keyboard. Didn't want to go back to wired only (before the K6 I was using an ALPS wired), being able to switch between 4 devices I find highly useful.

Glad this has the remappable keys as otherwise it would be useless to me. I bought it mainly to get one touch function keys (and delete key), I had to change the mapping to get function keys primary with media controls secondary(on Mac).

Its a brick of a keyboard, so don't consider if you want potability but the heft gives it a nicer feel on the desk and its quieter than the K6 (with the same keys). The space bar was a bit noisy to begin with and following some posts on line, I put some foam into the space bar keycap which has helped it be more similar to the rest of the board.

Thanks to the reprogrammable nature its easier to have the backlight do something sensible (on the K6 its a pain, always going on and off by accident and ending on silly moving patterns)

So far the best Keychron board I have tried and I recommend it unless you want to move it around a lot.
