Actually, you're absurdly wrong. About 1000% wrong (with prime).

u/badenglishihave · 4 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Get these, $2.08 for a pack of 100. They work great on my wife's DS4:

u/CaptainAmerricka · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Maybe get yourself some o-rings in the mean time. I put these on not to long after I got a blue switch keyboard. You might notice the reduced key travel at first, but you forget soon. I used these cause cheap:

u/dyril · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

MX reds, blues, browns use the same spring. The reds should feel slightly lighter because of no literal tactile bump on the stems.

Oh, the o-rings I've tried are the cheap 70 durometer ones off amazon:
I believe using softer ones would make the reds feel even mushier.

TBH I prefer browns so much that I
haven't given the o-ring'd reds a proper try. I might try them later with 55g springs from originative.

u/EMCoupling · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Some that I ordered off Amazon.

There are many more too. No way you should ever have to pay $25 for fucking o-rings.

u/coffeeslick · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

For $2, I used these on my browns. Probably took about 20 minutes to put them on. Definitely takes the edge off the noises from bottoming out.

u/Reygle · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Most of these folks are right- blues are pretty noisy even with O-rings, but I will say that O-rings WILL quiet it down a bit. The bottoming out sound of the keycap is quite a bit louder than the actual switch actuating. A user here referred me to some cheap o-rings here that I quite like and would recommend, but it looks like they're not available at the moment. :/

u/bakageta · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

There's also the 70A o-rings in a 100 pack for $1.87, and they're eligible for Prime. If you're not sure what hardness to get, give a variety a try. I found I like the 70A quite a bit better than the 50A, they just don't feel as mushy when bottoming out.

u/greath · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

The problem seems to be that the ones that really reduce travel distance also seem to be the mushiest. Seems like most people who are installing o-rings are doing it for sound not how far your keys depress :(

I've only found one real "review" on o-rings in general and the guy was using blues not reds so not sure how much it will tell me. At $20 a pop for a set it's kind of a sucky "guess and check" situation I feel like.


Edit: I think I found my answer: 70A... the number is a measure of hardness not size! Now I just have to find the right thickness in them...

Edit 2: Found them! 70A O-rings on amazon. Code 008 for the 1/16" and code 106 for the 3/32". At $2 a pop I can actually guess and check with these.

I don't know why my google-foo was sucking so much last night. I must have been tired.

u/Route66_LANparty · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I own the Cooler Master TKL Blue and bought my retired father the Poseidon Z for a machine I recently built him.

I like the CM TKL + $2 orings (amazon prime) better for typing feel. Just feels a little more stable and solid to me.

If you don't yet have a mechanical to compare it with though the Poseidon Z is still very nice for the money and has the numberpad + backlighting if you are into that.

u/LindtChocolate · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

you can get o-rings for like $2 man they're just rubber.
For example, I use these on my Ducky Gold

u/clonex10100 · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

If you type forcefully then most of the noise is from the former, You can get o-rings for your blackwidow, without needing a new keyboard! If you aren't set on getting a new keyboard try it first, razer even sells a (Overpriced) o ring kit. Or you could get this If you get the secound you will also need a keycap puller, which the razer kit includes. It will still be cheaper, esp if you have amazon prime.

The only reason you would need a new keyboard is if the click it makes before it hits the bottom is too loud, or you want something nicer then a razer.

u/watsaname · 2 pointsr/keyboards

If you want to try out some "cheap" o-rings check out this. They are a harder then the stuff that you can snag from WASD, but I actually prefer them over the ones from the Sampler Kit my brother got from them.

u/awhiled · 2 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Some are reporting that these o-rings (15 x 1 x 17mm) fit the kayfun body:

I bought the 008 Buna-N Orings for my Russian 91% chimney top, it seems to work ok...

u/OMGIMASIAN · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I have a blues keyboard. I ended up getting these o-rings to place underneath the keys which ended up cutting the sound of the audio in like half. The loudest part of blues is when you bottom out and the key hits the bottom of the keyboard. O-rings pretty much dampen that, which makes it much quieter. You can also put O-rings on browns etc.

u/Asmotron · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

No problem!

If you want to give it a shot for relatively cheap you can try out the ones I picked up

u/Prizeless · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Hey yeah they slightly reduce the travel distance and they keep them from bottoming out.

I used these o-rings:

u/Drizu · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales
u/Gilianz · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards
u/CBNathanael · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I went brown to not completely drive my family crazy. Unfortunately, I've been toting it between home and work, and now I want to buy another for the office. THAT one will have blues :D

If you're looking to add o-rings, someone tipped me off to these $2 beauties on amazon and they're working wonderfully.

u/Dungeon_Of_Dank_Meme · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Two quick questions, both since parts of the wiki seem messed up or old.

- [Is this still the best deal on O rings?]( I took my shitty old ones off my pok3r and I hate how it feels now.

- Is there anywhere to cop a Leopold FC750R in that snow white style with cmx reds where you won't pay up the ass for it? I need to tell people I want something that isn't $400 for christmas, lol.

u/freakingwilly · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

These rings severely reduce the clack from bottoming out and they are quite a bit denser than most other rings, so they are not squishy. Highly recommended. Don't buy into the clear rings, they don't affect the backlight to justify the cost.

Source: Own three mechanical keyboards and I like them so much, I put rings on all of them.

u/miyari · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I just put o-rings on my alphanumerics on MX Clears and I'm enjoying it. It does actually make what I already feel is a quiet keyboard quieter, which was some of my goal. I also feel like it somehow made my typing a little more accurate, but that's likely just in my head. It definitely changed the way the keys feel a little bit, they have a bit of a "tighter" feel for lack of a better word (I'm sure there's someone more fluent in keyboard that can better attest to o-rings on Clears). Personally, I like the change a lot as I almost feel like it makes the keys heavier and the presses more defined. I might change my mind and go without; I've only been using them for 2 days so far.

For anyone considering, honestly, pick some up for $2 with Prime shipping and just try it out for a bit. Worst case scenario you're out of $2 and then you have a vehement negative opinion that you can later share in threads like this, woo!

u/_Draven_ · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I'd say it's such a minute difference between them, I opted to buy some small rubber rings instead of branded "o-rings". You can check them out here! They work fine for me!

u/mnml_inclination · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

There are some available on Amazon for very cheap. From what I've read they're slightly stiffer than their WASD cousins. I'm unfamiliar with Amazon's shipping policies, but I imagine their logistics infrastructure is faster than someone like WASD.

Also, the color of the o-ring won't have any effect on backlighting. The two colors that are primarily available (red and blue from WASD) are of differing thicknesses.

u/spyder256 · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I'm curious as well. I recently got these for my Nighthawk X7 :

Only lasted a few hours before I was like "fuck this" and took them out.

u/SilentChiller · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

It's a good board, nothing fancy but it works well, I don't really like flashy, showy things anyways.

Both of mine have MX Clear switches and the original has o-rings and PBT blacked out caps.

u/Nupcake · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Cheap o-rings in Europe / Germany?

All prices I found through google are around 14-17 € or need some kind of mass buy.

I wouldn't mind the price but I don't even know if I even like them or the exact size I want.

I know of the cheap US ones but I can't really order from US Amazon and may have to pay shipping and Zoll anyway

I have a qpad mk 80 with reds by the way.

u/Iceman1925 · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards
u/12ebral · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I use these and they're pretty cheap.

Though they're on the stiffer side, they worked well on every switch I've used them on: clears, greens, blues, and reds.

EDIT: Accidentally switched the link and link title. hurrdurr

u/assofthefist · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

While the Cherry MX Dampeners are probably pretty nice, I couldn't justify throwing an extra $20 on my keyboard so I used these instead:

They fit the stems very well and offer a good amount of dampening without making the keys feel mushy (at least to me). I like it so much that I even put them on my brown-switch k70.

Be aware: your blue switches will still be very clicky, you just won't get the "clack" when you bottom out and the bottoming out distance will be shallower (a plus for me, but that's personal).

u/josyd · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

Hurr Go

I can't tell a difference between these and the 60A that cost $20/100.

u/LeChat42 · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Switches: If you're leaning towards Cherry MX switches but are still unsure of which ones you prefer, you can get a switch tester that includes red, black, brown, clear, blue, and green switches, as well as O-rings.

No matter which of switch you choose, it will still produce some noise, due to the key caps bottoming out. If you prefer a long-term keyboard with switches that produce tactile feedback, such as browns, blues, greens, etc., but are worried about the noise, you can get O-rings like these.

Which switch? I also code for lengthy periods of time and would prefer typing with something that produces tactile feedback, like either browns or blues. But since you have roommates, maybe browns would be better... unless they don't mind the click-clack noise, then get the blues since they're more satisfactory to type with. Heavy typer? Maybe you'll prefer greens since they require more force.

Keyboards: Of the keyboards you've narrowed down to, the Das or K70 are good. There're also the non-RGB K70s with single color LEDs that are cheaper than the ones with RGBs and come in red and brown switches.

I've owned the K70s with red LEDs and red switches and currently own the Ducky Minis with green switches. The LEDs on my K70 lasted throughout the time I've used it (< 2 years), but a friend's K70 had some that stopped working several months after use :/ I eventually sold the K70 and prefer green switches and a 60% mechKB since it's more portable.

u/Strottinglemon · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I use mine (Gateron Reds) as a travel board. These should arrive today so people don't get annoyed by the clack. My logic is that it's worth trying out for $2.

u/meganekko_panda · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace
u/acer589 · 1 pointr/mechmarket

I ordered like.... a hundred for 11 bucks off amazon.

EDIT: Sorry, correction, it's like a dollar fifty for a hundred


u/shadowdude777 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Yeah, I use a keyboard with MX Browns at work and installed o-rings under the switches and it's pretty quiet. I bottom out when I type and even then, I'm pretty sure nobody around me is bothered by it.

For anyone wondering, these are the exact o-rings I bought. Under $2 and shipped with Prime, and they fit perfectly.

It's a 100-pack so I think you might have to buy 2 if you want to cover every key on a full-size keyboard (I used one set of 100 on 2 keyboards, just covering the letter+number+modifier+spacebar/return/backspace keys). But still, buying 2 sets of these is under $4.

u/justmanner · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

They are all the same... even on amazon if you don't trust those sellers

u/zaqwedc · 1 pointr/mechmarket
I got these for my keyboard, they fit great!

u/RocketmanZero · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I had no idea O-rings were basically just industry specific rubber rings you don't have to buy at $18 from a keyboard shop.(makes sense when you think about it)
Mind blown, bought 200 of these for $4.

u/mookerific · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I use these from Amazon. 2$, higher durometer rating to avoid the mushiness, and not price-gouging like WASD's stuff.

u/exaltare · 1 pointr/buildapc

O-Rings. 1, 2.

u/leonardodag · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

You should also think about o-rings. They reduce by a lot the clack from the keys (when bottoming out, browns and reds are still really loud compared to membrane keyboards). There are some places that sell some for keyboards (usually the pack from wasdkeyboards), but you can also buy some harder o-rings (like 70A hardness) if you want less change to the feel of the key (like this: )

u/TheWheeledOne · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I used these:

Nice and cheap, did the job just as well as the .4mm ones from Max Keyboard I'd previously tried. There might be a minor difference in travel limitations for the key -- but we're talking a tenth of a mm at most, and if you aren't bottoming out every key press you won't even notice that. The difference being that these are ever so slightly smaller than the .4mm's.

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/MandrewDavis · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I tried a sample of the o-rings from WASD and found the 40a rubber was too soft for my liking. If I bottomed out, they felt mushy. Check these out, slightly harder and only $2, compared to $15.

u/ovrdrv3 · 1 pointr/ProgrammerHumor

Corsair K70 RGB (MX Reds) here,

Totally agree with this guy, the O rings make a nice difference, there is less travel but you get used to it. I was surprised to find that there wasn't a difference in the light output when the O-Rings go on. Just search amazon for "keyboard o rings". I ended up buying these.
