PCB

We redesigned the PCBs for the QK100 to more clearly distinguish between the "thocky" and "clacky" sound profiles, rather than something in between. To achieve this, we upgraded the PCB's flex cuts to per-key flex cuts, similar to the PCB of Mr. Suit, while retaining the non-flex cut version from the QK80. This design also applies to the plates.

Furthermore, we used a new material on the case foam and upgraded the plate foam. These changes will create a denser and more centred sound profile.

Tri-mode PCBs come with a screen bezel by default, while wired/soldered PCBs come with a badge.

Please note that wired/solder PCBs does not work with the LCD screen.
