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 literally means endless possibilities for a fluid workflow. Thanks to our engineering team, it's the first time in history that a wireless mechanical keyboard has these kinds of capabilities right out of the box. Simply connect the K8 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). It's never been so intuitive and flexible to personalize your own keymap. A brand new ultra-low-power Arm Cortex-M4 32-bit STM32L432 MCU which is powerful, and armed with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers.
Program the K8 Pro 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 and more.
To get started, please follow these steps: Download the appropriate kemap JSON file below, open VIA, turn on 'Show Design tab' on 'Settings' tab, drag the JSON file into the 'Design' tab on VIA to get the K8Pro keymap working on VIA.
Since the VIA code for the K8 Pro is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not yet automatically recognized, so you will need to manually download and enter the K8 Pro keymap.
Upgraded Typing Experience
The K8 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 when the K8 Pro lay on the desk.
Suitable For All Devices
Offers a Mac layout while still being compatible with Windows, the K8 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 (4 keycaps for each) to allow you to switch between operating systems with ease.
Every detail matters for a personalized typing experience, that’s why we give you the power. You can hot-swap every switch on the K8 Pro with almost all of the 3pin and 5pin MX style mechanical switches on the market (including Cherry, Gateron, Kailh, Panda, etc.) without soldering required. 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 delete. You can even customize it with alternative stabilizers such as Cherry or Durock.
Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch
The renowned Gateron G Pro switch comes with an optimized mold, more precise positioning, less wobbliness, and factory pre-lube will certainly improve your fingertip feel. A smooth travel experience is guaranteed with up to 50 million keystroke lifespan.
OSA Profile ABS Backlight Shine-Through Keycaps
To further leverage your typing experience, the K8 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 13 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.
Three levels of adjustable typing angle (0, 6 & 9 degrees), an inclined bottom frame, and curved OSA-profile keycaps are all working together to provide long-lasting ergonomic support for your wrist.

I watched loads of youtube videos and then ordered this. It's a superb quality keyboard and I wish that I'd just bought it instead of wasting hours watching videos of people with really odd requirements for the sound a keyboard makes. The long and short of it is that this keyboard works flawlessly, feels really good to type/code on and doesn't sound like a tin can. Delivered very quickly and without fuss by Orbit too,
