They've arrived, installed on the main keyboard area so far. They make the keyboard much better in my opinion. The clack as the keycap grounds out is gone (you can still hear the mechanical switch moving though). And the bottom out on the keystroke is much softer.

I linked the wrong ones above, I got the red ones. 120pcs Keycap Rubber O Ring Switch Dampeners RED FOR Cherry MX Free Shipping | eBay

Wouldn't any o-ring of the proper size work? Would be quick to go to any hydraulic shop and get a bunch. I probably have some in my service truck.

I must be crazy. Everybody told me to go with brown switches to cut back on the noise as well but i went with blue because i enjoy the noise from the blue switch.

I ordered a set too. Since I'm starting to use my Blue Yeti mic more, I've had a few complaints that my keyboard is too loud.

I'm not sure a person would be able to find 120 O-rings for under $6 US.... It'd be great if a person could find them at a penny / piece, but $.05 sounds plenty cheap to me. :)
