UK Keychron Q6 QMK RGB Aluminium Mac/PC Carbon Black Linear Custom Keyboard - Q6-M1-UK

A Refined Piece Of Metal Art
The entire metal body is crafted with 6063 aluminum that is processed through CNC machined, polished, anodized, sandblasted, and undergoes 24 more manufacturing stages to make this solid metal piece of art that is the Q6.

All-Around Customizable Keyboard
To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component easily assembled. Therefore, you can customize and adjust each component you want.

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 ABS Backlight Shine-Through Keycaps
To further leverage your typing experience, the Q6 ISO version comes with our unique OSA profile (OEM profile with spherical angle) and ABS backlight shine-through keycaps that aim to provide a more comfortable fingertip feel and a fantastic backlight shine-through effect.

Switch layouts between macOS & Windows
Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Keychron Q6 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.
You can easily customize the Q6's knob to your desired key or macro commands such as: zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.

Program Q6 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, even the knob, 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 Q6 keymap working on VIA.

Since the VIA code for the Q6 is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not yet automatically recognized, so you will need to manually download and enter the Q6 keymap.


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. The south-facing RGB is free from interference when the users install OEM or Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on the keyboard.
Note: The Q6's top case has sharper corners to make it much more compatible with third-party keycaps.

Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch
The optimized molded switch with more precise positioning and less wobble will undoubtedly improve the feel at your fingertips. With the fully assembled Q6 version fitted with factory pre-lubricated Gateron G Pro switches, a smoother travel experience is guaranteed for you.

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 Q6 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 live in Europe, 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.

The Q6 is a incredible keyboard, supreme build quality, and has a serious heft to it. swappable switches are a breeze to to do.

Personally I wasn't a fan of the red linear switches, switched them out for Baby Kangaroo tactiles. The process was simple and straight-forward to perfrom.
The base of the keyboard is very thick machined aluminium. the keycaps are very respectable.

Delivery was fast (next day UK), ordering process and service impeccable with KeyboardCo.

Highly recommend this board and supplier.

I liked the Q6 so much I bought another one for my son. Great service from Keyboard Co - very swift delivery.

Keychron Q6 + gateron red switches - Highly recommended for my use case: quiet office, num pad essential, fully customisable.

Excellent build quality and design. Feels and sounds great out the box. Force break mod to reduce ping and some sound dampening in the spacebar recommended if you're super sensitive to these things, but not necessary.

I have put a clicky switch in the caps lock key and a heavier linear in the spacebar, which is of course super easy with the hot-swap sockets.

Perfect service from Keyboard Co. Next day tracked delivery included in the price, (Keychron online shop has very high shipping costs).

Excellent delivery time and product is exactly as described despite not being able to find this model in the UK elsewhere. Packaging was for a different model (so I was worried at first) but once I got my hands on the keyboard and accessories it was advertised to come with my fears soon went away.

The Q6 itself is a great keyboard and has some decent software to rebind many things and make use of any macro keys. The found the red switches a bit too clacky on the spacebar, but a simple foam mod easily dealt with that. I was debating to go with the browns for a more tactile feel but honestly I think the reds gave me what I was hoping for anyway.

Best keyboard I've ever owned.

I had good service and timely delivery from the Keyboard Company. The
keyboard feels very solidly constructed and provides a smooth and
fairly quiet typing experience with Gateron red switches. Changing the
keycaps was easy with the included tools even for someone like me who
had never done it before. I'm not finished customizing it and will
probably change the switches to something equally quiet but with
better tactile feedback as a matter of personal preference. As a Linux
user, I very much appreciate that I can adjust the RGB and other
settings in clearly documented ways without any proprietary
windows-only drivers, and that the scroll wheel works out of the box
as an audio volume control at least on a KDE desktop.

Really pleased with my Q6 (fitted with Gateron Reds). Lovely to type on and the QMK/VIA software adds a lot of flexibility if you want to start programming macros.

It was important to me to have a keyboard with a numeric keypad and the Q6 delivers a full 100% layout. The Gateron Reds have a light touch and give a lovely quiet sound when typing. I'd definitely recommend them.

And finally, excellent service from the Keyboard Company as always - swift dispatch and very good packaging.

This keyboard is very unique. Better build than most, the housing is metal. I got the variant with the red pro switches. Plenty of customisation options - the Q6 is also available in a barebone edition. It does not have extensible feet, but it is tall enough not to be a problem for me. Backlight could be better (the keycaps are solid), but it is more of the question of style than quality.

Wow, the Q6 really is something else. Its built like a tank and just makes typing a joy. I was on the fence for ages Q6 or a V1 or a K8 Pro I'm very happy I went for the Q6, my first mechanical keyboard. I almost went for the K8 Pro, but knew I'd want a number pad, and once you add that in, you might as well just get the Q6 and all the extra benefits of the Q line. Switch-wise I've never had a mechanical keyboard before, I'm very happy with the red switches. I almost went for blues, but thought Id not be able to type when on video calls with the noise of the switches. I might experiment with some blues and browns - say just for the number pad etc, but the reds are so light and easy to type on Im happy with my choice. Last but by no means least, the excellent service from the Keyboard Company. Bruce and Martin were very helpful with pre-sale questions, shipping was next day and the items were really well packed. Can't recommend them highly enough!
