Does anyone have some more info on o-rings to help silence a keyboard?
I just bought a Ducky Shine 3 Year of the Snake with MX Browns, and I like my keyboards to be as quiet as possible, will adding o-rings help?
Do I just pop off the keycaps and install them on the underside?

Any info will be appreciated, thanks smile.gif

Hello Schubie, the O-rings are installed by just taking the keycap off and sliding the O-ring up the keycap stem, as so:



This will reduce the noise as when the switch bottoms out, you will have the plastic of the switch hitting the O-ring, rather than the plastic of the switch hitting the plastic underside of the keycap.

O rings will help if you bottom the keys out a lot. As far as I know, you just pop the keycaps off and then put o-rings onto them.

Why exactly do you need the keyboard to be any more quiet? I can understand not wanting an IBM model M due to the noise, but browns are already pretty quiet.

I don't even have it yet, so I don't know for sure.
I just don't like noisy keyboards or fans, I am one of those people that like it to be quiet as possible.
But I will make the judgement call once they keyboard arrive, but as a first time Cherry MX user, I am going to guess I will be bottoming out the keys a lot.

Will it help with the feel of the keyboard at all if you bottom out? I have a mx black based keyboard and the feel of it is just terrible. Wondering if O rings will help with making it easier to type on.

O-rings will soften the landing aswell as reducing the sound of bottoming out, especially if you got some softer O-rings.

Well, with a tactile keyboard, you shouldn't be bottoming the keys out anyway, so o-rings aren't really going to help all that much. I own an MX brown keyboard and even if you bottom out the keys relatively hard it doesn't make all that much noise. One with plate mounted switches would be quite a bit louder, but it still would be reasonably quiet.

IMO, touch typing is the best way to make your keyboard quiet, unless you have a model M.

I like the lighting effects on the shine 2. Are there any plans on ducky making a tenkeyless shine 3? What would the major differences be if i waiting for such a keyboard? i like the Duckys because ive heard they are top quality and a decent price at NCIX here in canada. I want a 10keyles because i plan to have it on top of my desk and would like to be as spacialy conservative as possible. I play Dota2 ALOT and would like a keyswitch that would help me maximize my skills. Pressing the wrong key can have disastrous effects in dota, because of this i am leaning towards the MX black switches, as they are linier and have more actuation force than reds. I fear reds might be too light for me. also, being able to accurately double tap the key is of paramount importance. They keyboard will be a gift, so price isnt much of an issue, as long as its sub 150$ and available in canada.
