Purchase them and try them out, they're pretty cheap, nothing that'll hurt your wallet, over all they make your mechanical keyboard feel sort of membrane-ish thus making your keyboard just that tad bit quieter and cool feeling if you're gaming.. Solid product 5/5
This worked pretty well for quieting up my Filco mx cherry (brown) keyboard. I work in an office environment that is pretty quiet so I needed something that will quiet out the bottoming. I must say you do lose some of that addictive mech keyboard sound. But the clicks are still there. It's just like 30-40% less clicky. It will also get rid of the resonance ringing from the key vibrating. It helps you type a bit faster too since the keys are not as sticky. I'm very happy with the results.
Pro tip: Leave the Enter, ESC, and DEL key alone so you still get that satisfying bottoming out on those keys.
Video: The DEL key is normal. The END key has the rubber o-ring on it. You could hear the difference.
I bought these O-rings, the WASD keyboard switch “sampler” (which comes with about 6 or so of WASD's equivalent red O-rings), and a pack of WASD's blue O-rings, which are about twice as thick. I compared the three on my Ducky keyboard, which has Cherry MX Brown switches, and found I had a clear preference for the ThreeBulls. They produced bouncy but quiet key strokes, and didn't shorten travel of the switches too much, something that apparently bothers me.
All this is to say, the only thing wrong with this brand and this particular product is that the awesome price suggests less-than-awesome performance. That is not the case. These are O-rings are great.
Was looking to reduce the noise from my favorite Durgod Taurus K320 - Cherry Brown keyboard... Installation was easy, especially once I perfected removing the keys with the tool that came with the keyboard. I only added one ring to each key because adding two rings didn't seem to make any difference.
The sound difference is very noticeable and the typing feel is not all that different. The keys do feel a little heavier but they don't feel sticky like the Silent Red Durgod keyboard that I have. The keyboard is still loud, but nowhere near as clacky loud as it was without the rings.
I ordered the red rings just because - looks like they're all the same.
I'm a 150wpm+ typist (according to most online games) - these things actually improved the feel on my Durgod Taurus K320 keyboard (Cherry Brown).
Extremely easy to install, I had a key puller that came with my keyboard. So it took maybe 5mins to do half the board. These do help eliminate the very loud bottoming out sound for my cherry red switches when gaming, but it does not eliminate actuation noise completely. You still get audible feedback when you actuate the switch which is nice for regular typing.
Overall, I’d buy again, I have a tendency to press harder then needed. But, if you’re looking for something to completely eliminate the mechanical keyboard noise maybe these aren’t for you. Or just don’t get a mechanical keyboard.
I couldn't very well pass up the deal that walmart is offering on their onn. branded mechanical keyboard, but with it's design comes a fair amount of noise. The clicks of the blue switches isn't a problem at all. The sound of the keys bottoming out, however, is a bit unnerving. I placed one of these under each key, and a second one under the A-Z and 1-0 keys. I'll probably order another pack to place a second ring under the remaining keys. On this keyboard, two seems to be the magic number. My pack came with some extras, so it was more than enough to get me started.
Great buy if you would like to dampen the sound of your clicks from your mechanical keyboard. I love my keyboard (Corsair K70 LUX cherry mx browns) but it can still be a bit loud even with this particular model/edition. So I bought this O-Rings on the recommendation from a friend and I very much enjoy it. It does not hinder the functionality or the performance of the keyboard but it does dampen the sound enough to notice. Great enough to not disturb the spouse when sleeping.
I use a blue switch keyboard and these things hardly do jack s**t, I'll be honest. They dampen the noise MAYBE by like 15%. But who knows maybe my roommate really does appreciate that 15% reduction at 4am.
I even double ringed every one of my switches and that's the only thing that even made it somewhat quieter.... Yeah... Not exactly a "must buy" imo.
