Product Details

Cherry MX Rubber O-Ring Switch Dampeners

"Bottoming out" is a term used to describe when a keystroke is pressed all the way down where the stem of the switch hits the inside of the switch casing. This causes a "clack" from the collision on mechanical keyboards. Switch sound dampeners are soft rubber O-rings that can be installed onto every single keycap stem to cushion the landing of the switch by stopping the keystroke just short of the point of bottoming out. This also very slightly reduces the max travel distance of the switch. (0.2-0.4mm of 4mm total travel distance. Varies by O-ring type.)

This modification is popular among mechanical keyboard owners from around the world. Since most people will bottom out at least a fraction of their keystrokes, the switch sound dampeners will cut away extra noise giving your mechanical keyboard a consistent sound output while typing. The added shock absorption can also help with finger fatigue during long typing sessions.

The installation will require removal of your keycaps. Install O-ring on the stem of the keycap. Install the key and press down firmly to fully seat the O-ring. The O-rings are designed for our keycaps and keycaps from many other popular brands with Cherry MX Switches. Please note that some keycaps, such as the ones found on Cherry Corp keyboards have different stem lengths and will not work properly with our O-rings.

Ring of Comfort

Get the click without the clack, plus a touch of ergonomic optimization, with a set of 50A O-Rings. To install the O-Rings, simply slide your keycaps off, pop the O-Rings into position, and slide the caps back on. Manufactured from industrial-grade rubber, your 50ShoreA O-rings won’t slip from the position or crack with use, giving you a mechanical keyboard modification to last a lifetime.

Note: Available in different sizes: 

8 x 5 x 1.5 mm, 

9 x 5 x 2 mm 

10 x 5 x 2.5 mm, 

11 x 5 x 3 mm. 

This drop is for one bag of 120 O-rings of a specific type. 

A Ring for Every Occasion

1.5 mm: Most O-rings are this size. They won’t do much to affect travel distance, but they will reduce noise.

2 mm: For people who want less key travel and quieter keys.

2.5 mm: For people who want significantly reduced key travel and slightly more sound-dampening.

3 mm: Not recommended for Cherry/OEM/keycaps without beams, as these may shorten travel distance so much that keystrokes won’t register. These are for people with DSA/SA keycaps with no beams.
