Looking for Ultra Quiet Gaming Keyboard

Recommended Posts

You need to go membrane if you want the absolute quietest.

Even MX red with o-rings is pretty loud tbh.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

By mechanical feedback do you mean tactile (bumpy)? MX Reds are still mechanical, they're just a linear style switch, which means they press down with no bumpiness in the key press or anything like that.

+1. O-rings don't do a whole lot if you bottom your keys out. If you can learn to use an MX red, black, or silent and not bottom them out then they should be pretty dang quiet, but that's not feasible.

I find most of the noise actually comes from the opposite of bottoming out, when the key fully releases and hits the top of its travel.

There's no way of putting o-rings on the other side of the plunger...

I used to have an MX Red keyboard and sold it replacing it with the MX brown, it's not a 'quiet' keyboard but it is a lot quieter than my previous keyboard.

A custom board with Zilents and lubed stabilisers? Or a Matias Quietpro.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + ML120 + NF-F12

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710

Silent? Membrane. There's no other answer. Membrane isn't as bad as some elitists wants you to think.

If by "gaming" you mean "feature fancy pointless and cost rising lights", as the market seems to define that word, then there's plenty of 50€ and less membrane keyboards like that.

 

If you enjoy programming each key individually, then the Razer Cynosa is the only one i found in my searches (i don't own it, just considering to buy one).

 

If you want mechanical, there's Cherry Silent switches but they're available in few and high cost keyboards; and they are still louder than the loudest of membranes
