but who could possibly want CLICK without the CLACK?!?!?!
I've used similar products before on other keyboards for customers. Essentially they are quieter that MX Red Silents. Though each switch has its own unique sound. I would say a 50% reduction in noise should be expected
(Edited)
It states Cherry MX Oring, than it says compatible. So is it OEM original or just generic. OEM and generic not the same ...?

The title just means that they'll work on keyboards with Cherry switches. Cherry doesn't make O-Rings. They make a special switch with rubber elements, called MX-Silent.
They finally are on Massdrop again :#
Desert dweller here. Hypothetically, how long will it be in zero humidity before these start to disintegrate, as opposed to silicon for example?
Are these as good as sound isolator shields?
What brand is this? Are these premium or just generic? Do the colors make a difference?

In my opinion, clear is the only valid color for these on a keyboard because someone might have led lighting under the keys or add it later and the black could end up casting a shadow or lighting a translucent character unevenly (especially if you double them up) with a key that's some other color than black. I also like the clear ones because they are made of silicone which doesn't dry out, crack or get compressed over time like some other materials do.
Who is making these? Are these just a non-name brand? Why shouldn't I get these from a Chinese site instead?
How much actual noise reduction do these types of rings provide? Every "quiet" mechanical keyboard I've tried over the years (and I've tried some pretty expensive ones) all still sound like a box of rocks dropped into a washing machine...

I have the clear silicone ones on all my mx-type keyboards, some blue and some brown switches, with two on each key, and they do make a considerable difference on the down stroke. They even help slightly for the sound of the key going back up, since the up-travel is a shorter distance (the main purpose of the 2nd ring) , so the returning key has less momentum before it hits the top. I have not tried the ones on this drop since I only want silicone for its durability, and only want clear in case I use them in a lighted keyboard.

That noise is when keys bottom out (reach the bottom) and if you remove a key cap and press the switch (if it’s a silent one) there will be very little noise. O-Rings are the solution as they greatly reduce bottoming out, you can also try tap typing (pushing the key down till it reaches the actuation point without it bottoming out which also will make noise but is harder with linear switches (like Reds) because you cannot feel the actuation point. In general O-Rings are the best solution, ofc they won’t make Blue switches sound silent as the switch itself is quite loud.
Drop aside, O-rings are great. :)
oh man... O-rings failed me like they failed the Challenger shuttle...

Too soon...

:dunks keyboard in ice water: THIS IS THE PROBLEM!
I really wish they would come with with the thin o-rings specifically made for Cherry profile keycaps, high-quality ones that rival that 3/16 light force dental bands I have to buy from Sonic Dental supply.
THAT I would pay Massdrop for.
Regret ordering these..should have looked at the ship date...oh wells it'll be a surprise when they show up.
Or get them from eBay for $3.85 shipped now.
You can get the same thing on Amazon for a dollar more and not wait 2 months to have it shipped. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N6438BK/
Such a rip off. There's even a damaged ring in the banner image!
Got a serious question for the experienced mechanical keyboard community. Would I see/feel anything different if I install these cherry Mx rubber o-rings to a clear cherry mix keyboard? I'm not sure if anybody has tried them together considering clear cherry mx are medium stiff, tactile, non-clicky. I'm just not used to using a clear mx keyboard, the keys feel "mushy" and the actuation point across the keys feel uneven. Basically I'm trying to make the keyboard feel more "comfortable". I'm using a pok3r rgb by the way. Thanks!

"make the jump to tactile" but mx clears are tactile..
If bottoming out would feel less mushy to you, you could switch the springs for lighter ones. As mx clears are not meant to be bottomed-out on with their heavier spring weight.

I meant clicky, not tactile. Sorry about that.
Shipping and handling to Greece is $5.25. For a $6 product. Are you kidding me massdrop?
I've been told that there are O-rings that are much thicker than these but I can never find them. Can anyone post a link?
Dgordon
I always double them up, but I get the clear silicone ones from eBay for $1.25 per 100.
Hahaha, seriously? Send me a link to the $18 version.
Just look up 1/16" thick, 50A Durometer 3/16" ID, 5/16" OD O-Ring packs on Amazon. Can get $6 or less, prime shipped. Get it delivered before the drop ends for this and less cost.

I searched exactly what you said to and nothing shows up except plumbing gaskets.

Seems those don't exist. But there are a few cherry mx O-rings on. The site now. ThreeBulls 120Pcs Rubber O-Ring Switch Dampeners Keycap white For Cherry MX Key Switch Keyboards Dampers are $7 shipped.
Does anyone have photos of these in the Clear option? I have a backlit keyboard, and was hoping to determine the impact these would have :\

$1.34 actually.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/120Pcs-Rubber-O-Ring-Switch-Dampeners-Dark-Red-For-Cherry-MX-keyboard-Dampers-Keycap-O-Ring/32680003111.html? I bet they'll even arrive faster too. Nov. 13th shipping? Are you fucking kidding me?
This is so stupid you can buy them off ebay for like $1 and wait 2 weeks to get them. Or order them of amazon for this exact price and get them in 2 days.
This isn't a good deal. This is what they normally go for on Amazon.
I would just pay the extra few bucks and get them from somewhere else. Nowhere is gonna charge you $18 for them...I used to be a huge fan of Massdrop, but now I will only use it for exclusives. It seems like situations like this are becoming too common:
https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/6nd96y/i_knew_massdrop_was_bad_i_didnt_expected_it_to_be/
Seems worth it... 120 of them for 6 dollars...
I dont wanna live the nightmare that is plucking my keys one by one and installing a tiny, losable, snapping rubber band on each one....
Alexrawesome
Then why comment on a drop that you are not interested in?
Ha-ha! I did the same thing by just picking up a bag of little rubber bands that people use for teeth retainers.

Nice! Let us know if that works well.

It was an older computer with a particularly noisy keyboard. Long gone. Keys were definitely quieter, but a little soft, as well.
