Blue rings with brown switches Review by Scott
Rating
I have a k95 and with 18g keys I ended up having to get 2 packages of rings to cover all switches on the keyboard. For the price more o-rings should be included by default. As for how they feel they feel great and actually improved my typing speed a little due to having less travel distance. (Posted on 2/1/17)
Blue O-rings did the trick Review by Richard
Rating
I have a private office so did not think keyboard noise on a CODE with brown switches would be an issue - but it was. Adding the blue o-rings did the trick, quietened things down just enough.

Putting them on myself was a bit of work - took a bit over an hour while I was listening to TV. Next time I'll pay the extra $15 up front to have them installed.

Nice! (Posted on 1/23/17)
Rubber o rings .4mm Review by Daniel
Rating
These o rings came as described. I tried them out on my blue mx switches. These did do their job of making my keyboard quiet with shorter key strokes however, these were not my cup of tea when it came down to feel. I would recommend to give them a go if you are looking to quiet your blues switches and learn to not bottom them out. (Posted on 1/18/17)
Stupidly expensive Review by Fred

All is in the title: WASD went from a few $ to a full $15 (+S&H) for small rubber pieces in a year or two. Honestly, it is not worth the money you spent. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining about the product which does the job, but rather about the price, and more importantly the price increase. No, it is not a good idea to milk customers... no.

Helped to bring me to comfort Review by DB

This will be short as it just hit New Years at midnight. I have a Das Keyboard 4 Professional for Mac with Cherry MX Brown switches. I found the switches/keys had a lot of travel with no bump or click part way down, so it was hard to know when I pressed a key enough to engage it. I installed the blue dampeners on all keys and it shortened the distance to press, softened it and quieted it also. Now I don't have to second guess and every time I press I know its engaging. Even when I bottom the key out now its soft and quiet. This has made a good keyboard great now. Thank you so much. (Posted on 12/31/16)
Works Great Review by Walkin

The sound difference isnt drastic but still noticeable. My keyboard is quieter now and the reduced distance to bottom out the key is amazing. I didnt think it would make that big of a difference but it does for me. Typing and playing feels so much better now. (Posted on 12/31/16)
Blues on Browns Review by davido
Rating
I have a Das Keyboard 4 Professional with Cherry MX Brown mechanical switches. Within a day or two of purchasing the keyboard I acquired the WASD Red O-Ring key dampeners and installed them. I used them for about a month, and liked how they reduced the clatter, and slightly softened the bottoming out. But I'm a programmer, and a vim user, and tend to bottom out the command-mode keys while using vim (ESC, and a few others). Furthermore I felt that I would prefer a slightly shorter travel distance. So I ordered a set of Blue O-Ring key dampeners and installed them in place of the red dampeners.

Now after a week with the blue dampeners I have to say that I feel they're the best solution (for me) when using Cherry MX Brown switches. The bottoming out feel is more muted, and more resistant to clatter. Also, somehow I feel that with the slightly reduced stroke depth and less jarring bottoming-out feel, I'm able to detect the actuation bump in the MX Browns better, and consequently do a better job of ending my stroke at the bump rather than at the bottom-out. My typing speed has improved ever so slightly more than before, and my accuracy seems a touch better, all with less effort and noise.

The overall feel of the keyboard with the brown switches and blue o-rings is still very much the feel of a mechanical keyboard; switches have a consistent feel across the keyboard, the actuation points are precise, and the overall experience with this combination is excellent.

Installing the o-rings takes some time. There's no way around it. With a little practice it's possible to get the o-rings to snap into position without needing to meticulously nudge them to the top of the inside of each keycap. Get "the snap" just right, and they'll go straight to where they need to be. Really the hardest part is dealing with the longer keys that have alignment mechanisms under them. On WASD keyboards Cherry MX guides are used, and those are not hard to work with. On Das Keyboard Professional 4 keyboards, those keys have metal guide clips under them, and are tricky to remove. The easiest thing to do is to remove all the keys near those guided keys, and then remove the key from the switch post but leave the clip in place. In so doing, the key can be tipped on its side and with some agile fingers, the o-rings can be snapped into place.

The whole process for a 104 key keyboard takes about an hour, and switching out the red rings for the blue rings took me about 90 minutes.

People who have never experienced the pleasure of typing on a well made, well tuned mechanical keyboard will never understand, and probably don't care to understand the pleasure of spending your work day typing on something of quality. To me the browns with blue o-rings are exactly the quality and feel I've been wanting. (Posted on 12/19/16)

Good buy Review by C

I just installed the blues on my Kinesis Advantage with Cherry browns...

Most of my typing life I've been using Apple keyboards, and it was quite a shift moving over to the mechanical switches with much longer travel. The o-rings have helped me speed up quite a bit, definitely worth it for me. (Posted on 12/8/16)
