About the Keychron K6 and Anne Pro 2

Most enthusiasts have heard of a hot-swappable keyboard where you can swap the switch and keycaps with any options compatible with the base. This keyboard type gives the highest freedom for enthusiasts, but they are also more expensive than a typical keyboard. Suppose you do not plan on customizing the keyboard. We recommend using a regular gaming keyboard with a mechanical switch like Keychron K6 and Anne Pro 2 because they are more affordable and versatile for most applications.

These keyboards are some of the best in the budget range, but not too cheap if you want something that lasts for a long time. While the two are equally compact keyboards, the number of keys differs, as you will get more from the K6 than the Anne Pro 2. Many people prefer the Anne Pro because this model is compatible with software; thus, you can customize it. If you want a similar feature from Keychron, check the K Pro series, such as the Keychron K6 Pro Vs Keychron K2 Pro, because these models are compatible with VIA software.

However, if you don’t plan on customizing the keys and want a simple yet good keyboard, the Keychron is an exciting choice at a lower price. The keys are very similar to the Anne Pro regarding stability, but the keycaps are different, and this may affect your decision because people usually have their preferences. Additionally, we found that the Anne Pro 2 has PBT keycaps which many people may prefer better over the cheaper ABS plastic on the original K6.

Keychron K6 and Anne Pro 2 Design

There are a few models for K6 keyboards, but we choose the one with an aluminum frame and plastic; there is another with full-plastic construction. The overall build quality is pretty good, with a height of 1.3 inches and a width of 12.5 inches, versus the Anne Pro 2 at, 1.7 inches tall and 11.5 inches wide. The Anne Pro 2 feels slightly more solid, but the K6 is the heavier keyboard. Another difference is the K6 has adjustable ergonomic feet while the Anne Pro 2 has a fixed angle.

Keychron K6 and Anne Pro 2 Switch

Because neither of these keyboards has a hot-swappable feature, you will use the same switch as what is pre-installed on the device. In this case, the K6 comes with a Gateron switch, and you can choose between red, blue, and brown. We like the brown switch because it is between red and blue, so it is versatile for gaming and typing without being too noisy. The Anne Pro 2 also comes with a Gateron switch, but you can find the models with Cherry MX and Kailh, so ensure you get the right switch.

These switches are good, depending on your preference. The linear or red switch has less resistance and is very responsive, making them good for gaming or for those who like lighter keys. The blue or clicky switch requires the most effort and is the noisiest choice, but the feedback is also the best. If you want something in between, the brown switch is an excellent alternative because it gives slight feedback but is quieter than the blue switch. Many typists prefer the blue switch, but we love the versatility of the brown switch.

Keychron K6 and Anne Pro 2 Typing Experience

The next part is for typing experience, which may vary based on what switch you like better or is familiar with. Mechanical keyboards, especially in the budget range, usually wobble a little on larger keys like the space, backspace, and enter keys. The typing experience is good but also different, and we prefer the Anne Pro 2 for this category because it already uses double-shot PBT keycaps. You can also find the same keycaps from Keychron, but they are usually in the more expensive range, such as the Keychron Q2 and Keychron Q3.

The space between each key is adequate for the best comfort, and these keyboards are angled to deliver the best ergonomics. However, these keyboards are also tall, and depending on your hand, some people may want to add wrist support so their fingers and arms are more aligned. The label on each key is prominent so that you can see them with or without the RGB lighting. Besides the slight wobble on some keys, these keyboards are very comfortable for gaming and typing.

Keychron K6 and Anne Pro 2 Connectivity

One of the best parts of Keychron K6 and Anne Pro 2 is the connectivity because many mechanical keyboards in this price range can only connect through USB, while these two can use wired and wireless connection through Bluetooth. The wireless connectivity makes the two more versatile and convenient for bringing the keyboard while traveling or using them with laptops and tablets. Since they are wireless, the battery life is also crucial, but the K6’s 4000mAh battery lasts longer than Anne Pro 2’s 1900mAh battery. Read also: Keychron Q2 Vs Keychron K2.

Some differences make us prefer the Anne Pro 2’s, especially with USB cables, such as switches and PBT keycaps.

The decision is yours because we may have different preferences. We like both keyboards, but they are best for different users.

However, if you use the USB cable, the Anne Pro 2 is more comfortable and has better build quality, especially with PBT keycaps.
