Keychron Q6 QMK Custom

The Keychron Q6 is a great keyboard. I wasn't able to order it prebuilt in ISO UK, but I was able to order the ISO barebones. It was a fun experience choosing and installing keys and keycaps, I've learnt a lot! The board is itself comes in a very sturdy box, with a nice, branded braided cable. the LED backlighting is peaty bright and paired with the VIA keyboard software it very easy to control. VIA was also a great help testing all of the keys once I had them all installed.

I had a big issue with shipping. This was not Keychrons fault, but it was a frustrating part of my introduction into mechanical keyboards.

Beautifully crafted

This is Keychron's best keyboard yet. Nothing else needs saying, other than I wish there were more colourways available (like the retro one).

Great keyboard

This is a perfect keyboard for work, it does take a lot of space through so for gaming it is not the perfect choice. Nevertheless it has become my favourite keyboard nowadays (I do have the Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q5).
One issue I had with this specific Q6 is that the top row of screws was over tightened. First time I see Keychron having a quality control issue with their keyboards, Keychron please review your Q6 quality control. Thus I will give it only 4 stars, not because of the keyboard model but because of the specific instance I received.

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.

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.

Keychron Q6 full size Custom Mechanical Keyboard

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.

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 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.

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.

Get the Q6 keymap working on VIA

To get started, please follow the steps: Download the appropriate keymap JSON file below, open VIA, turn on "Show Design tab" on "Settings" tab, and 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, you will need to manually download and enter the Q6 keymap.

Note: Only the right JSON file can be input, please find the right version keymap JSON file which matches your keyboard to download.

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 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.

Gateron G Pro Switch Features
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 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 to 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.
