I got this keyboard for $50 after rebate, I really enjoy it (my first mechanical). Whenever I go to my college library, I always contemplate bringing the keyboard in to type on the computers because their rubber domed keys feel like I'm trying to type on a keyboard made of Play-Doh. Unresponsive, slow, and generally unpleasant to use.

A word of advice for someone who is thinking about getting a mechanical keyboard, even if the switches don't make much sound, the keys bottoming out / rebounding tend to be quite loud. This is why I invested in some rubber o-rings which limited the sound the keyboard makes when bottoming out. The ones from amazon are similar to the ones that WASDkeyboards sells for $18 (I assume its comparable to the 50A-R). They do influence the feel of the keyboard, but I think the noise reduction is worth it.

Overall, if you've been looking for a good keyboard to get for a new gaming computer, or if you're planning on upgrading to a mechanical keyboard, I would definitely suggest this (even though it is $10 more than what I paid for it).

Edit: If you are new to mechanical keyboards, keep in mind that they are generally taller than dome keyboards (base is roughly 3/4 inch tall). Also, this keyboard isn't fully back-lit if you were looking for a keyboard which is, I advise you look elsewhere.

Story time... I've had this Filco with blues for awhile and never done anything to it. A few months ago I picked up a CODE with clears and my poor Filco sat abandoned and unloved. Recently, Massdrop did a group buy for Ducky PBT caps and I decided it was time to breathe some new life back into my Filco. I wanted to bring it back to work so I also took the opportunity to install some o-ring dampeners (Amazon, non-referral).

I love the keycaps, they feel great -- I'm a big fan of the texture. The o-rings make a big difference for me because I always bottom out. The one's I ordered from Amazon are a hybrid of the two offered by WASD because I wanted a harder ring with less travel reduction. If you're wishing your blues were a little quieter these are great o-rings.

u/ilessthanthreemath · 6 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I have o-rings on my Poker II with blues. I'd estimate that the sound has been cut by 50%. The "thunk" noise when you bottom out is greatly decreased but the "click" sound from the switch itself is audible.

I use these from Amazon since they're half the price of what WASD charges.

If you want a real carrying case, there was a group buy over on GeekHack for a 60% soft case. The organizer of the group buy owns (where I got my Poker II) and said that he should have a few spare cases after the group buy is over.

u/Furority · 6 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Alternatively, you can get a pack of 125 for $8.25 on Amazon.

u/mike_the_pirate · 5 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Get the O-rings from Amazon

Much cheaper then WASD.

u/perkited · 4 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

$8.25 at Amazon.

u/streakybacon · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

These are from Amazon but as long as they are the correct size any o-ring will work (your preference on hardness may vary); dental bands also work.

Here's an infographic for Cherry MX caps:O-Ring Informational.

u/oh_hai_dan · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I got a set of 125 from Amazon for less than $9 shipped: 50A Durometer, Round, Black, 3/16" ID, 5/16" OD, 1/16" Width. Had no trouble with it on my KBT Pure.


u/nibblebot · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I put these on my QFR blues. Now, they don't bottom out and just do the clicky sound. Much more consistent sounding since every keypress sounds the same.
I assume you'll get similar results with the wasd ones. I also bought the sampler pack from wasd but couldn't decide on which ones I wanted, so I ended up with the amazon ones.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/pcgaming

I just recently upgraded to a CM Storm QuickFire Rapid mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX reds from a Razer black widow ultimate with Cherry MX blues, and the reds are much quieter than the blues. The keys will bottom out since there is no actuation to feel where you stop, so I purchased some 50A durometer o-rings to place under the keycap to soften the landing and sound of bottoming out on the keys. On websites like, they want around $18 for these rings, but on amazon, you can get 125 in a small package for around $8 here. I think they are totally worth it and make the quietest switches a bit quieter, and no one complains over skype anymore about my noisy keyboard.

u/rambunctious · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I use these though I know that you can get the nice coloured ones from WASD.

u/Grazfather · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I have these because I think paying $20 for orings is retarded. Typing is fine, maybe just less enjoyable, but still a lot nicer than my old keyboards. It really prevented the ping I used to get from bottoming out, but I feel they are a lot less useful now that I type properly and don't slam the keys.

u/iRideBMX · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Here is the link

u/Derangedcorgi · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Without changing the feeling of the key stroke? You would probably need something with a low shore rating. Maybe somewhere in the 20A range. I suggest that you just use something with a relatively higher rating and is readily available like this one I listed below, you'll get used to it pretty quickly. You can also find some in the 40A range but they tend to be more expensive for some reason.

u/xzer · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

if you live in the U.S you can get them for $8

Otherwise I would guess they range around $20. ^^^^iwishiwasintheus

u/tricheboars · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

fuck yes i want pics. sounds like you almost went with dolch style color scheme.

nice price too. did you end up with brown switches?

o-rings can be really nice if you like to bottom out all the time. i do and it saves my fingers a lot of stress with my insane cave man style of key pounding.

i bought these on amazon. they seem nice enough.

it is a nice quick little mod. it also allows me to use my board in my cubicle at work. but i use blues. you use browns? you might be able to use browns at an office or at school without disturbing people.

u/Choco617 · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Looking for a full-size with MX Browns for general use plus gaming (USA), and the following are all pluses: Mac layout, white LED, detachable cord, simple aesthetics, and "floating keys" like Varmilo (definitely not all hard requirements except full size and Browns).

Current plan is WASD Code (has everything except floating keys, for 150 on Amazon or less if I can wait for MassDrop) with these O-rings (look equivalent to regular red ones), plus Vortex doubleshot PBT+POM backlit white keycaps thick OEM height ones that apparently look great on specifically the Code (plus they match my white Corsair 600T hackintosh case).

Any ideas? Decent cheaper alternatives I hadn't considered? Concerns I should be aware of with this setup? This Ducky One looks like a decent cheaper board at 120 with Browns and white LED, but the availability is listed only as preorder, which sounds to me like “unavailable for who knows how long”.

Apologies for my noobiness, and happy holidays!

u/Stevo32792 · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Get these. It doesn't completely silence the keyboard, but it keeps the keys from bottoming out and making the louder 'clank' noise. It also reduces travel distance of the keys, making it slightly easier to type.

u/TeeheeS · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I believe these are ones most people buy. Note that o-rings will make the bottoming out a bit more like rubber domes, kind of squishy, but you will have less key travel distance, and it will be easier to actuate the switch a second time (i.e. you don't have to lift your fingers as high to get the switch to register again).

u/Topre · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

WASD Keyboards the blue ones will dampen sound the most.

Max Keyboard

Amazon. Both WASD Keyboards and Max Keyboard also has O-rings on Amazon. Free shipping on Max Keyboard's O-rings and Amazon Prime on WASD Keyboards' red O-rings (blues are out of stock).

I honestly wouldn't bother with eBay unless if you want the buyer protection.

u/Eliryum · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Also my first mech (haven't arrived yet though). I heard people like blues for typing and RTS (I plan to play SC2 on it) but perhaps not for FPS as the clicking might get annoying. The bottoming out probably produces the most noise though, so o-rings are good for that. The nice clicking will remain even with the o-rings. I just got these which are about 1/2 price of "keyboard-specific" o-rings.

u/maddenman2000 · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

From /u/lpwl :

>If you want to quiet down the keyboard and soften the landing, get soft o-rings, ie in 40A or 50A durometer.

>If you want to quiet down the keyboard but keep a hard landing, get hard ones (70 - 90A durometer)... however their noise dampening won't be as good as the soft ones.

The 40A-L Red O-Rings ($15) from WASD Keyboards is the most popular choice, a cheap alternative is Buna-N O-Ring 50A ($7). If you don't mind waiting a long time you can get o-rings shipped from China on Ebay for $1.08.

u/billz12oz · 1 pointr/osugame

I mean that's a totally fine train of thought. I just recommended them because I felt my browns were way too loud. Once I got my o rings, the sound got dampened significantly, so I thought the 8 dollars I spent on the O rings was justified.

u/Jwkicklighter · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Not sure if these are technically meant for a keyboard, and you won't be able to tell someone the exact size rating (in terms of the Cherry MX o-ring thicknesses from the pic I linked) but they're pretty cheap, there are more than enough for a full size keyboard, and they're what I used on my BW Ultimate: Amazon Link.

You need a keycap puller (or a way to get keycaps off) if you don't have one, but those are pretty cheap and easy to find.

u/voxelnoose · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

These are the ones I have, dont know the size in metric and Im to lazy to look it up

u/mrknister · 1 pointr/mechmarket

I bought these for 20$ including shipping to germany, which should be a lot less for domestic shipping.

u/mister_wizard · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I have the BWU as well and used these. They worked fine and slightly mute the sound of them hitting the board when you push a key in. It wont make then silent, but it helps and is a cheap purchase.

u/lappalappa · 1 pointr/Twitch

thanks for the help. I found these ( but they dont ship to my country (Norway) would there be a way to get them any closer?

u/RoloisRight · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Put an order in for the brown version yesterday along with some o-rings. Since the browns looked like they were going fast, I didn't have enough time to get in-depth on my search for o-rings and grabbed these to throw on the same order.

008 Buna-N O-Ring, 50A Durometer, Round, Black, 3/16" ID, 5/16" OD, 1/16" Width (Pack of 125)

u/akelis · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

How about $8 from Amazon? These are harder (50A) than the blue/red sets, and should have a travel reduction of about 0.2mm

u/BzBz-CrispyLips · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Here are the O-Rings that I bought along side the WASD keyboard ones.

The WASD Keyboard brand ones are defiantly a lot softer and dampen a little better than the generic brands. :)

u/slip84 · 1 pointr/mechmarket
u/RumpleForeSkin72 · 1 pointr/pcgaming

I have the red LED version of the K70 and the MX reds are pretty quiet. I put some O-rings on each key to limit their throw (the Reds actuate at the beginning of the depression rather than at the end like some other keys). The O-Rings made a HUGE difference in noise.

I find this keyboard to be just a smidge louder than my old logitech 510 but with the added benefits of being able to type without any sort of hand pain.

u/wickedCircuits · 1 pointr/pcgaming

I just got this keyboard to, if you don't like the loud clacking from bottoming out, you can get o-rings to use as spacers under the keys, quieted mine down, so all I hear is the blues clicking.

Link to the o-rings on amazon.

u/imadeofwaxdanny · 1 pointr/NCSU

If you're interested, these are the ones I used on my keyboard. I think the Razer blue switches are a little different than the standard ones, but I don't see any reason they wouldn't work with how similar the two are.

u/PacoBedejo · 1 pointr/starcitizen

If the reds are softer than the blacks, i don't know how you'll rest your fingers on the keys w/out depressing them. I find the blacks to be ideal for gaming and more than acceptable for typing. If I did more typing than mousing, I'd definitely want browns or blues.

Be sure to get yourself some O-rings though, otherwise you'll need some earplugs.

u/diablolico · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I bought these for my QuickFire Rapid (black), removes the "mushy" feeling as some describe it. Feels really good and solid. Not sure about shipping to Canada, but these o-rings are very common and there are tons of reviews of users installing them on heir MechKBs.

u/KungFuHamster · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Ok I guess I paid more than $3, these show as $8 right now:

But if you search for "o-ring" on Amazon there are quite a few results that are cheaper, in varying sizes.

u/t0w3r · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I used these, but felt they made bottoming out too mushy.

u/SoySauceRoosterBrand · 1 pointr/mechmarket
u/manirelli · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Slime? I assume you mean slim...

For anyone interested, this is the actual one I was looking at and one of the reviewers said it would work. Measurements seem to match closely to the ones on wasd.

u/Tananar · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

These. I don't know if they're hard or soft, but iirc they have a 2mm travel reduction.

u/exaltare · 1 pointr/buildapc

O-Rings. 1, 2.

u/Mr_F4ll0ut · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

You can get those same WASD ones direct from Amazon in either Red .2mm or Blue .4mm which at least saves you on shipping if you have Prime.

You can also get more generic, plain o-rings on Amazon in slightly different hardness. Both of these should work just as well for a considerably lower price. I found them via mech related links from Massdrop and here, but have tried neither myself.

u/Kevinflo · 1 pointr/keyboards

First off try doing the o-ring modification with these. I found that it cut down on the sound of my mech keyboard and made the keyboard a bit nicer to type on.

If you really want to bail on mechanical though I use this for coding at work and I really like it for that. Otherwise I actually really like apple's usb keyboard with the numpad.

u/my_elo_is_potato · 1 pointr/LOLDyrus
u/BRlLLO · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

These work for mechanical keyboards and are a little cheaper alternative (not exactly what you're looking for but at least something to look into).

That being said, they're 50A not 40A. Otherwise, maybe someone has 4 extra they wouldn't mind shipping you?
