I use two o-rings per keycap with my blues.

Old thread, but what the heck? I don't use o-rings, I thoroughly enjoy the mechanical feel and the "clickety-clack" sounds. If I'm typing out something lengthy, it kinda sounds like typing on an old school typewriter - emphasis on the "kinda". biggrin.gif

will 2 orings actuate on red and brown MX? I might buy multiple sets to try this out. i feel my k65 is too sensitive and too tall.

After having tested all Cherry MX and most Alps, I use only Cherry MX Blue and MX Clear.

I put O-rings on MX Blue. I think that if the key clicks then the key click should not have to compete with the sound of bottoming out. Also, bottoming out hard is bad for the fingers.
O-rings are not necessary on MX Clear because the stiffness of the spring prevents you from bottoming out hard. I still have them on one keyboard with MX Clear just so that I could make it very silent.

I use the Red O-rings from WASD Keyboards on OEM-profile keycaps.
On Cherry-profile keycaps (Cherry, Leopold, Vortex, Gateron), I use instead orthodonitic bands 3/16" Medium. These are very thin rubber rings. I find that the O-rings from WASD are otherwise too thick for Cherry-profile caps.

I use two O-Rings on my Ducky brown. I love it. The height of the o-rings has really helped with my gaming and typing. It feels a lot easier and seems faster to type on. I ran out of o-rings for the F row of keys and difference is noticeable. It feels hollow to press on keys without o-rings.

They're worthless.

-Once you get used to using the keyboards you'll be using light taps that rarely bottoms out.
-They only somewhat dampen the sounds from bottoming out, typing fast will still be loud since they don't dampen the sound keys make when they do the reverse of bottoming out when you release the key quickly.

If i do long gaming sessions with mx blue then I put three o-ring every keycap on my WASD keys. Only noobs buy red switches if you can make blues act like better than red for gaming if you but three o-rings and after gaming you can always remove them on WASD keycaps and enjoy heavenly good typing experiences.
Edit: And yes you can double tap mx blues if you but three o-rings every keycap you use

I thought about Orings and bought a set for $1, but end up deciding to sell my old boards and get a K70 Rapidfire with Cherry MX Speed instead.
