I got it for my previous keyboard, it had red switches and it helped nicely. I found them to be load without, with it I found them endurable.

I would say no. Even though it does reduce the noise in the downstroke, it doesn't reduce the noise of the upstroke, while adding the extra mushiness when bottoms out. If anything you should swap the stock optical red with silent optical variants. https://x-bows.com/products/gateron-optical-switches-110-pc

then get small amount of them, you should be able to find them at medical tool stores. But personally, they really less about dampening the noise and more about dampening the harsh tactile feedback on clicky keyboards and make them smoother. Reds are linear and imo dont need em.

i am not a fan of red switches but tried them on black ones in the past: no recommended

It makes the bottom out wired and unpieces just like cheap membrane keyboards.
