  • RGB LED Primary LEDs: RGB (SMD)
  • RGB LED Control LEDs: RGB

Features

  • Can be used wired over USB-C or wirelessly over Bluetooth 4.0
  • Large 1900 mah battery with Built-in on/off switch to conserve battery power
  • ObinsLab Starter companion computer software for programming keyboard layout, function keys, lighting effects, battery life monitoring, macros, and updating firmware
  • Bluetooth functionality is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.
The firmware has been completely redone with many new functions and features. The keyboard supports complete layout re-programming. Love the Anne Pro 2 but miss the flexibility of using a QMK compatible board? No problem! All keys on the keyboard can be remapped to become any key you want through ObinsLab Starter. Tap key functionality enables keys to behave differently when tapped or held. By default, Right shift, Fn1, Fn2, and Right control behave as arrow keys when tapped. There are 2 main function keys which can be remapped to your preference. Fn1 and Fn2 can be mapped to two different function layers that can be customized through ObinsLab Starter. Caps Lock can also be set to act as a “Magic” function key to mirror the behavior of either Fn1 or Fn2. This “Magic” function is particularly useful to make certain functions easily accessible without moving your fingers from the home row. For example, while holding “Magic” function, WASD can behave as arrow keys. Lighting can also be reprogrammed through ObinsLab Starter. RGB backlights are individually addressable and dynamic lighting effects can also be programmed as well. Lighting profiles can be created, saved, and loaded to the keyboard through the software. Up to 16 key macros can be programmed through the computer software. Saved macros are stored onto the keyboard onboard memory and do not need the use of the computer software to activate. Keyboard firmware updating is done entirely through ObinsLab Starter, and is much easier than compared to the process for the original Anne Pro. Just plug the USB cable into the board, press update, and the software will automatically download and transfer the firmware update to the board.

  • My Anne Pro 2 has Kailh Box Whites. These switches are buttery smooth and have a soft click that I can hear and feel. My only other experience is with blue switches (Cherry MX and Gateron) so far and these are much quieter, with a lower pitch. I thoroughly enjoy typing on this keyboard.

    The build quality is plenty solid for my purposes. I'm not going to bend or twist the board to test this, but it can withstand being carried around the house and used on the couch, the dining room table, and the bed. I'm not taking it anywhere out of the house. I love the feel of the PBT keys, including the blank, brightly-colored extra ones that are included. I could see myself having fun with other keycap sets, but the stock ones are good enough for now.

    Although the RGB lighting isn't as bright as I thought it would be, the effects are cool and I love how customizable they are. The ObinsKit software had a little bit of a learning curve for me, but for those who have done a lot of experience with keyboard software, it's probably easy to pick up immediately. This software does tend to crash on the MacBook Pro.

    My keyboard was a like-new return. I'm not sure why it was returned, but what I can say from my experience after a couple of weeks is that there are some issues that are annoying but not deal breakers, given the price I paid. I've had some problems establishing a Bluetooth connection when switching devices. It never seems to be the same solution twice, so I just fumble through turning it off and on again, forgetting the device and adding it again, etc. Once I've got it paired, the connection is solid. I don't switch between devices with it often, so it's only a minor annoyance so far. On a couple of occasions there have been letters I didn't type that show up, and sometimes the cursor will jump back to the beginning of a line in the middle of a word; this mostly seemed to be a problem on my MacBook Pro and only when I was posting a comment on a website. A couple of times I've managed to miss a keystroke if I don't type with my usual level of force, which does kind of defeat the purpose of getting quieter switches, but I can live with it. The keyboard seems to work best with my iPhone and iPad. Most of the aforementioned problems have been on my MacBook Pro.

    If I had bought it at full price, and if I needed it to be my only keyboard, I'd be returning it too. As much as I enjoy this keyboard, I wouldn't say it's 100% reliable. I hope that these are all issues that a firmware update can fix.

  • I like it is good

  • So the keyboard itself is nice but the firmware and software are very buggy. I have two Anne Pro 2 keyboards and both of them have the same issues. To get CS:GO to launch you must unplug the keyboard from USB, launch the game and then plug it back in. Also, this keyboard is not compatible with Linux - it will only work for a short time before having to be unplugged and replugged from USB to get it working again. Extremely frustrating that these issues still remain after years. Avoid this keyboard at all costs.

  • My experience with the Anne Pro 2 has been relatively good despite a few bugs in the setup and some lacking features in the software.

  • Excellent board especially if you plan to take it places. Feels extremely durable with no case flex. Interestingly, it did make a strange squeaking sound when I tested for flex out of the box, but it no longer does. Stabilizers are lubed out of the box which makes the keyboard feel amazing for typing, and the experience is excellent for daily typing and gaming. If I were to give one criticism, it would be that the lighting is very dim on the black model, though at this price, I just bought HyperX white pudding caps to make the rgb pop. All around a fantastic board, especially at the price.

  • fihuuire AND THATS IT ITS AMAZINGGGGG

  • Oh well, after just a week of use, several keys are sticking and the "N" key will just catch and keep going forever if you let it. The Kailh White is excellent for typing, my main use. However, it's not acceptable for a keyboard to come right out of the box with keys that are flawed. This is extremely disappointing and frustrating. Giving it one star for the Kailh White. Taking away four stars for shoddy quality.

  • Love it! best mechanical keyboard I've had so far. I got the Kailh Box White switches, they are so crisp and smooth, this is after having the keyboard for 6 months. I have fallen in love again!

    I use mine via Bluetooth since I don't use it for gaming I only use it for programming and normal browsing, I keep the RGB lights off and my battery lasts for a week and a half (Haven't tried with RGB on). I love that the software works on the 3 major operating systems, I'm specially thankful for a Linux version. One last thing why I picked this keyboard is because I can remap any key that I'd like.

  • I'm fairly new to mechanical keyboards, even newer to the whole 60% game, but all I can say is "Love, love, love it!" Bought the one with Kailh BOX Whites and I don't regret it. Was so adamant about getting the Gateron Browns that everyone says is a good start because it adds a nice balance between typing and gaming, but I wanted the crispy click sensation. I don't have any of the crazy stats comparing switch types, it just feels amazing.

    Opted to buy from MechanicalKeyboards.com because it was the only reseller that had overnight shipping. It is a fairly budget friendly compared to a bunch of the major name brand keyboards, but this plus the shipping cost is still cheaper than Razer, HyperX and Logitech XD. Shipping was extremely fast, overnight was more like 8 hrs NY to NM. Just absolutely grateful for how easy it was to make this purchase, will definitely purchase from here again.
