Product Description


Matias Quiet Click Switch,  clear mechanical keyswitches, 50 pcs

http://matias.ca/switches/quiet/

Replacement clear plastic keyswitches for mechanical keyboards, pack of 50 switches (no keycaps included)

These require soldering, and are not returnable for change of mind

 

They feel amazing.

Designed specifically for our Quiet Pro line of keyboards, Matias Quiet Click switches convey a feeling of refined comfort. They feel mechanical without sounding mechanical.

They're quiet.

Mechanical keyboards offer the best performance, but they’re noisy — too noisy to use in most offices, or around other people.

Matias Quiet Click switches are first mechanical keyswitches that are actually quiet. They let you build superior mechanical keyboards that are no louder than the generic keyboards that most computers come with.

MUCH quieter than Cherry.

How quiet are they? You can hear for yourself.

We made sample recordings of keyboards that use Matias Quiet Click switches, Cherry Blue, Cherry Brown, and Matias Click switches.

Simply click (or tap) to play/pause. Adjust your speaker volume (if necessary).

More tactile than Cherry.

For proper tactile feedback, you need a click leaf in the switch, or an equivalent mechanism. Cherry switches lack this. They are a linear design which is, by definition, NOT tactile. For users who like linear switches, Cherry are good, but they are NOT tactile.

How did we do it?

( Hint:  Sound  dampening  on  the   
downstroke  AND  upstroke ) 

Over the years, the only recurring complaint we've heard, from users of our award-winning Tactile Pro, was the noise.

Most people LOVE the clickiness of it — but sometimes, in some places, it's just too loud.

It's great if you're in a room by yourself, but in an office, other people don't want to hear your typing. Perhaps your housemates don't either. This switch was created for those places.

How did we do it?

We spent 2 years poring over the minutiae of what makes a keyboard noisy.

We tested springs, and click leaf shapes, and lubricants, and dampening mechanisms, and metal plates, and stabilizers, and... came to the conclusion that we didn't want to EVER have to do this again. We went a little crazy.

BUT, when we were done, we had something truly unique and special — a tactile yet quiet mechanical keyswitch.

The good news for you, is that because we went through this long and painful ordeal already, you don't have to. You can simply purchase these little jewels and use them in your own products.

Built to last longer.

The traditional ALPS switches that inspired our design had an operating life of 10 million cycles. Matias Quiet Click Switches last 5x longer — 50 million cycles.

RGB backlight support.

click for larger imageOur switch housing is transparent. Light shines right through it.

This makes it easy to design backlit keyboards, as well as indicator lights that appear right on the actual keys — Caps Lock and Num Lock, for example.

Best of all, this approach does not interfere with the feel of the switch, and there's no extra cost incurred. There is no separate "backlit version" of our switches. They all support backlighting — in ANY colour.

Needless to say, we were very amused to see Cherry copy this idea in their Cherry MX RGB switches — the sincerest form of flattery.

NKRO support.

Most keyboards cannot register more than a few keys pressed at once, so they may not be able to keep up with very fast typists. The result is called ghosting — letters missing from what you actually typed, or additional letters that you didn't type.

These problems can be eliminated completely on a mechanical keyboard, simply by adding a diode to each switch. This is one of the major advantages mechanical keyboards have over cheaper technologies.
