Dampen the noise and adjust the feel of your MX switches. Compatible with RGB lights on your keyboard. Comes in various sizes.
GLORIOUS O-RING SWITCH DAMPENERS (120PC)
When mechanical switches "bottom out" they make a distinct clicking noise that mechanical keyboards are famous for. Different switches bottom out to different amounts of noise, but there's no doubt that all mechanical keyboards are loud - much louder than their digital counterparts. If you're playing video games and voice chatting at the same time, or you record yourself while you type, the clicking sound will invariably end up on the recording. That sound is also quite annoying for anyone who is in the room with you while you type.
To circumvent this problem, you can grab a set of O-Ring Switch Dampeners. They cushion the blow of the switch and the keycap and make your typing experience all the more silent. They also change the way your keys feel to the touch, as you type, softening the blow. We've got a couple of dampener varieties to choose from, perfect for ultimate keyboard customization. Our O-rings are also backlight LED compatible, so they do not interfere with your RGB keyboard.
Each package comes with 120pcs of Glorious O-Rings.

- The thickness of the dampener indicates how much it will shorten the distance you must press the key before it's registered. A thick 2.5mm dampener will make it so that you have to press your keys a very short distance before they register as pressed.
- The hardness of the dampener helps you understand how the key will feel to the touch when pressed. Lower values mean the key will feel softer to the touch.
* 40A means a material hardness of 40 on the Shore Durometer A Scale - Higher values indicated harder materials.
These are the first O rings I've ever bought, to go along with the Glorious Aura keycaps. They do not block the light and dampen the clack of my blue switches without changing the feel
O-Ring Switch Dampeners
I purchased these O rings along with a no name set off of Amazon. What I can say is that these ones are marginally easier to put on, and offer a slightly greater reduction of noise. All in all very please with how they turned my cherry browns into something I can now use at work.
so I have an Apex M750 keyboard from steel series. and I just recently started getting into the modding and building of custom KB's. and I heard that there were O-rings that could dampen the sound of the bottoming out of your switch caps. so far I am in love with these O-rings. they work wonderfully. the sound is softened about 50-60 % and if you know what keyboard I'm talking about this thing was soo loud before. so I grabbed the softest O-ring style and yea I fell in love with my keyboard all over again. I highly recommend these if you're even slightly annoyed or bothered by the sound of bottoming out. or if you in an office setting and just want your KB to be a bit quieter. Also, the price for these was super reasonable and I filled out my entire full-size KB and still have a bunch left over in case any break or I want to throw some on another KB spacebar or whatever so grab these if you think your KB produces a bit more noise than you'd like or another great feature is that they shorten up the travel of your caps and make it so if you type a lot you don't get fatigued as quickly. GRAB EM they are a fantastic quick mod to your KB
The O-Rings worked about as well as I expected they would. They definitely reduced the high-end clacking noise from the keys while also providing a bit of padding. A very solid product.
