Keychron unveils Q1 Pro Wireless Custom Mechanical Keyboard with Mac layout

From 9to5mac.com


Adding to its lineup of high-performing keyboards like the K2 and customizable Q5 and Q1, Keychron has unveiled its latest mechanical keyboard for Mac. Continuing with a high-end focus, the new Q1 Pro Wireless Custom Mechanical Keyboard features a full aluminum design with hot-swappable keys, a Mac layout, is fully customizable through QMK/VIA, and much more.

Keychron says that it received “rave reviews” for its Q1 wired mechanical keyboard but the one comment it kept getting from customers was they wanted a wireless model. The Q1 Pro delivers that functionality with Bluetooth 5.1 in a 75% layout in a full aluminum frame.

The company says it will be “the first-ever mass-produced full aluminum wireless keyboard that can be fully customized through the QMK/VIA software (as opposed to keyboards that are modded to have these features).”

Keychron Q1 Pro specs

  • Wireless and wired connectivity
  • Full CNC aluminum construction body (75% layout – no numpad)
  • Hot-swappable design
  • Connects to up to 3 devices simultaneously via stable Broadcom Bluetooth 5.1
  • Customizable keymap and macro commands through QMK/VIA software
  • KSA profile double-shot PBT keycaps
  • Programmable knob to enhance workflow
  • Mac layout with multimedia and function keys similar to Apple keyboards
    • Includes keycaps for both macOS and Windows
    • Compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems
  • Powerful ultra-low-power Arm chip with 128K Flash
  • 1000Hz polling rate for wired mode
  • Easy to assemble with double-gasket design for improved typing sound and comfort
  • PCB stabilizers for a smoother typing experience
  • Aluminum rotary encoder for customization

Keychron has launched preorders for the Q1 Pro through Kickstarter. While there are risks with crowdfunding, Keychron is a seasoned company with a solid track record of delivering on its promises. Notably, just a few hours in, the goal of raising $50,000 for the Q1 Pro was surpassed.

The Barebone Q1 Pro (no switch or keycaps) is available starting at the early bird price of $184 USD, while the fully assembled Q1 Pro starts at $204. The first deliveries are expected to start in April.

Stay tuned as we’ll have a full review of the Q1 Pro coming soon!
