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.
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.
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.
This is Shopee's package tracking information according to their system.:

And these are the trace information obtained in the Postal system. Note that they made a mess forwarding the package to the wrong place, what delayed delivery.

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, otherwise the manufacturers themselves would incorporate the idea. I was mistaken.
To be honest, the tactile feel of typing is better without o-rings. Feeling the key hitting at the end of the course is more pleasant from a tactile point of view, but the fact is that it makes more noise. The o-rings give a cushion that is not so pleasant to the fingers, mas ainda é mais agradável que usar teclados de membrana.
