      Double-Gasket Design

      The Double-Gasket Design is an innovative structure within the industry. Alongside the gaskets on the plates, we have incorporated silicone pads between the top and bottom cases. This significantly reduces the resonance between the metals, thereby decreasing the noise caused by metal impacts. The Double-Gasket Structure maintains the flexibility of the gasket system while enhancing the overall typing sound quality.

      Swap Between Windows & MacOS

      Designed with Mac users in mind, yet fully compatible with Windows devices, the Q1 stands out as one of the few keyboards offering a Mac multimedia key layout for Mac enthusiasts. Using VIA software, you can easily configure your keymap for both Mac and Windows systems.

      All-New Screw-In PCB Stabilisers

      The screw-in design enhances stability and simplifies changes and upgrades. Precision craftsmanship ensures the stabilizers are more secure and less wobbly. This results in a more stable and smooth typing experience for larger keys (space bar, shift, enter, delete). The Keychron Q1 V2 also supports third-party stabilizers, including Cherry and Durock.
