UK Keychron K2 Pro QMK Bluetooth RGB Hot-Swap Linear Aluminium Mac/PC Keyboard - K2P-J1-UK

Wireless and Wired
An excellent solution for multitasking. You can connect the K2 Pro with up to 3 devices wirelessly via its stable Broadcom Bluetooth 5.1 for seamless multitasking across your laptop, phone, and tablet. Switch among them swiftly, and it's fully compatible with both Mac and Windows.
A reliable USB Type-C wired connection is also available when you need it.

Program with QMK & VIA.
QMK/VIA means endless possibilities for a fluid workflow. Thanks to our engineering team, a wireless mechanical keyboard can have these capabilities right out of the box.
Simply connect the K2 Pro to your device with a cable, drag and drop your favorite keys or macro commands to remap any key you want on any system (macOS, Windows, or Linux).
An ultra-low-power ARM Cortex-M4 32-bit STM32L432 MCU which is powerful, and equipped with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers.

Get the keymap working on VIA
Since the VIA code for the K2 Pro is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not yet automatically recognized, so you will need to manually download and enter the K2 Pro keymap.

 

Upgraded Typing Experience
The K2 Pro has been re-engineered and redesigned from the inside out to upgrade the typing experience. The added sound-absorbing foam, a thick silicone dampening bottom pad, and steel plate provide responsive feedback and a peaceful typing sound, while added weight will enhance the stability.

Suitable For All Devices
Offers a Mac layout while still being compatible with Windows, the K2 Pro is one of the few on the market that has the same multimedia and function key functions as Apple keyboards for Mac users, but with more tactile feedback.
You can even configure different keymaps for both Mac and Windows devices. While VIA software is compatible with macOS, Windows, and Linux. Includes keycaps for both macOS and Windows to allow you to switch between operating systems with ease.

Hot-swappable
Every detail matters, so we make the K2 Pro hot-swappable for your personalized typing experience. The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can hot-swap every switch on the K2 Pro with almost all of the 3pin and 5pin MX style mechanical switches on the market (including Cherry, Gateron, Kailh, Panda, etc.) without soldering. You can customize your own typing experience in seconds.

Screw-In PCB Stabilizers
Even small part matters for your fingertip feel. We’ve integrated the PCB-mounted screw-in stabilizers for a smoother typing experience with less wobbliness on the big keys such as space bar, shift, enter, and backspace. The Keychron K2 Pro also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.

Pre-lubed Keychron K Pro Switch
By optimizing the switch mold, the K Pro switch wobbles less than a standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed process on all the K Pro switches (exclude the clicky ones), no doubt this will ensure the best smoothness at your fingertips when typing.

OSA Profile ABS Backlight Shine-Through Keycaps
To further leverage your typing experience, the K2 Pro ISO version comes with our unique OSA profile (OEM profile with spherical angle) and ABS keycaps that aim to provide a more comfortable fingertip feel and a fantastic backlight shine-through effect.

South-facing RGB Lights
The south-facing RGB is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist's angle. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference when the user installs Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on their keyboard.
Comes with more than 22 types of RGB backlight settings (as well as a static white backlight option). You can further fine-tune the RGB hue, saturation, brightness, effect speed with ease.

Ergonomic Support
Three levels of adjustable typing angle (5º, 9.2º & 12º) and curved OSA-profile keycaps are all working together to provide long-lasting ergonomic support for your wrist.

Good initial impressions: quite a bit heavier than I was expecting and the stock red switches sound quite good.
The build is solid and easy to disassemble if desired.
Stock keycaps are the only real disappointment as they are laser-ablated ABS and not double-shot PBT. They sound good, but I'm personally not a fan of their soft-touch texture.
Spacebar stabliser needs some tuning, but the rest are ok and I'm impressed with them.

Happy with this keyboard overall. Feels and sounds good, and easy to modifiy as it's hotswap and supports QMKVIA.

Excellent shipping and customer service from The Keyboard Company as always, very happy to purchase from them again.

A really really nice keyboard which ticks all the checks I was looking for: UK Layout, not too big and not too small, nice sound from stock, reliable and really well built generally. Plus great service from Keyboard Company for support and delivery.

I've been using this keyboard for work for a few weeks now and I am very satisfied with it. The switches included are crisp and smooth but I had to swap them with some more silent ones to make my colleagues happy - very easy with the hot-swappable board.

I was willing to spend more for a fully customisable keyboard and that was worth it, it was very easy to remap keys with VIA. The only downside is that the UKISO layout doesn't have the same range of choices compared to the same model with the ANSI layout, so I had to pay for the backlighting and aluminium frame that I didn't really need.

Still early days, but so far really impressed. The keyboard is much heavier and taller than I expected, but no problems with it so far. The keys are extremely smooth, the red switches were a very good choice despite being used to browns.

There are a couple of key mappings Id like to change so will give QMKVIA a try when I have time.
