The result is a solid metal piece of art that exudes sophistication and durability. Every component of the keyboard is designed for easy assembly, allowing you to customize and adjust each element to create your ultimate typing experience.
Double Gasket Design
In addition to gaskets on the plates, silicone pads are incorporated between the top and bottom cases. This ingenious design significantly reduces sound resonance between metals and minimizes the noise caused by impacts. Prepare to experience the next level of key sounds and comfort with the gasket mount design, complemented by a flexible PC (Polycarbonate) plate. This combination maintains the gasket structure’s flexibility while enhancing the overall typing sound.
Equipped with an ultra-low-power ARM Cortex-M4 32-bit STM32L432 chip (MCU) boasting 128K Flash, the Keychron Q5 Pro offers developers enhanced flexibility. The keyboard has a default polling rate of 1000 Hz on wired mode (90 Hz on wireless mode), ensuring minimal latency even during competitive gaming sessions. Say goodbye to noticeable delays and enjoy a seamless typing experience.
Enhanced Keycaps and System Compatibility

These keycaps are oil-resistant, durable, and designed for long-term use.
Versatile Rotary Encoder

This versatile knob can be easily customized to perform various commands such as zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume control, selecting video clips or photos, or changing backlight hue. Tailor your keyboard to your specific needs and enjoy newfound convenience.
Seamless Integration with VIA
While the VIA code for the Q5 Pro awaits approval from Github, the keyboard is not yet automatically recognized. However, you can easily set up the keymap by downloading the appropriate keymap JSON file (ANSI or ISO) and using VIA. Simply turn on the “Show Design tab” on the “Settings” tab, then drag the JSON file into the “Design” tab in VIA to get your Q5 Pro keymap working flawlessly with VIA.

Superior Stability with PCB-Mounted Stabilizers
Keychron understands that even the smallest details matter when it comes to fingertip feel. That’s why the Q5 Pro incorporates PCB-mounted screw-in stabilizers. These stabilizers ensure a smoother typing experience with reduced wobbliness, particularly on larger keys such as the space bar, shift, enter, and delete keys.
