O-ring finding help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I need help finding a o-ring that is right for me. This is the keyboard i'm getting http://www.elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=leopold,fullsize&pid=fc500rrab . And I need a o-ring for it. I was looking at these http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/cherry-mx-rubber-switch-dampeners.html. But I can't figure out which ones are better for me. I press on my keyboard really hard and I want it be less loud. If someone can tell me which ones of theses are the best for me or you can recommend me better ones. biggrin.gif

A lot of folks prefer the red o-ring from wasd since it doesn't reduce the overall key stroke as much as the blue o-ring.

The blue will give you a more quiet experience compared to the red but, will limit the travel a little bit more. Personally I'm impressed with people who notice the 0.2mm difference between o-rings. I personally have bought the blue o-rings and I love it, though my style of typing is, I tend not to bottom out if that makes any difference at all.

Your choice really, if you bottom out and hit your keys hard the blue's will definitely be a more quiet option.

For some reason in the video the black ones sound more quiet for me.
