Try this: press a key down very slowly and listen to the sound. Now compare that to the sound of your current normal use. That sound of the key being pressed slowly is how quiet it can be when you're not bottoming out.
So in other words, the sound you're hearing is always described as "clacky". But "clicky" refers to the sound that the switch itself makes.
Yea, that was the first thing I tried when I took it out of the box. I'm not hitting the keys very hard but am bottoming them out so the click from the switch and the bottoming out sound are roughly the same volume. It just feels so loud to me because my previous keyboard was almost completely silent.
Going back and typing on the old board feels so mushy now though. I understand why you guys say you could never go back...
