[Review] 2x Mechanical Keyboard O-Ring 120 Transparent parts

The two packages of O-Rings for Mechanical Keyboard with 120 pieces in each were purchased at Shopee, shop mik_store, for use with my Xanova Magnetar RGB Mechanical Keyboard XK700 Switch Cherry MX Brown, XK714C3RGABK2BBRG, already shown here on Skooter Blog.

Motivation

I acquired the O-ring rings as soon as got the Xanova Magnetar Mechanical Keyboard. The idea was to have the benefits of a mechanical keyboard but with as little noise as possible. the keyboard uses switches Cherry MX Brown, that has no audible feedback, there is only tactile feedback. Even though there is no noise in the keystroke, there is still the noise when the key reaches the end of the course, and this is the noise that can be muffled by o-rings, which act precisely by dampening the impact of the key at the end of the course.

Purchase

I chose to buy from Shopee because the O-Rings for Mechanical Keyboard with 120 pieces they were at a nice price (R$ 12,99 each packet), free shipping and seller in Brazil, so they arrived pretty fast, on the same day as the keyboard. Both arrived two days after purchase. In fact the o-rings should have arrived the very next day, even before the keyboard, because the seller posted the same day and the package came by Sedex. But the Post Office did silly, as costume, and forwarded the package to the wrong city, delaying delivery.

The keyboard has 107 keys, and the little package with 120 comes in handy because some larger keys have additional supports, like the space key, the Enter and others. I bought two of them right away because I wanted to test them with one and two o-rings on each key to decide how you would use.

Unboxing, Installation and testing

Check out the photo and video of unboxing and tests of O-Rings for Mechanical Keyboard with 120 pieces. Note that in the video I make a comparison of key noise without o-ring, with a o-ring and with two o-rings. I ended up choosing to keep a o-ring on each key.

Final Considerations

The O-Rings for Mechanical Keyboard really work to reduce typing noise. I used to think that this kind of thing would be exaggeration or that it would have little effect, do contrário os próprios fabricantes incorporariam a ideia. Eu estava enganado.

Para ser honesto, a sensação tátil de digitar é melhor sem o-rings. Sentir a tecla batendo no final do curso é algo mais agradável do ponto de vista tátil, mas o fato é que faz mais barulho. The o-rings dão uma amortecida que não é tão agradável aos dedos, mas ainda é mais agradável que usar teclados de membrana.
