Keychron’s Q1 has often been touted as one of the best mechanical keyboards you can buy, and the brand’s latest upgrade may have put it head and shoulders above the competition. Introducing the Q1 Pro, Keychron’s first-ever wireless mechanical keyboard.
Based around a remarkably sturdy 6063 aluminum chassis, polycarbonate plate, and innovative, whisper-quiet double gasket design, the Q1 Pro perfectly balances enhanced typing sound while keeping things at a whisper. Most of all, this configurable piece of office equipment features all the customization options you’d expect it to. With the ability to hot-swap every single switch on the Q1 Pro, Keychron’s latest allows you to fully customize your typing experience, tailoring it toward your every need.
Additionally, it offers 22 different RGB backlight settings, as you can adjust its hue, saturation, brightness, and more. The wireless iteration retains the trusty programmable knob found on the original wired version. This element can also be fine-tuned to your liking, as it can be used for various macro commands like zooming, adjusting brightness, or controlling volume. Lastly, it’s available in a trio of sleek colors, each accentuating those bright RGB lights.
Those interested in building their keyboard from the ground up can select the Barebone version, starting from $179, which does not include keycaps or switches. Meanwhile, the fully-assembled Q1 Pro Wireless Mechanical Keyboard is to pre-order for $199 and is expected to ship this April.
