These were shipped to me in Belgium. But so far I didn't receive them yet. How long is the estimated shipping time to Europe?

EDIT: My appologies, the package did arrive today.
Would these help at all with the mettle 'tinging' sound that the springs in my MX Gray's make? That sound is really annoying. I've tried to look into this on Deskthority, but it looks like the main fixes they have would require taking the switches apart. Since all my keyboard has LEDs this is kind of a pain to do...
Great news! TEX let us know that the group's order is on its way to our warehouse now. Based on the shipping schedule we were given, we are expecting the shipment to arrive early next week. As it stands, we should be able to ship out everyone's order quite a bit ahead of schedule.

The order will arrive in a bulk shipment and our warehouse team is ready to break it down into individual packages and send them out to you as soon as it arrives.

Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 2/27 or sooner.

Check out WASD keyboards. They different versions of this for sale and are generally good guys.
I feel cheated.. Too bad I can't cancel my order. If they can be obtained for 1/4 of the price elsewhere why does the site still offers them? Going to PayPal resolution to obtain a refund..

It's not your right. Go google the law... I bought it without knowing the cheaper alternatives and I'm disappointed too, but I accept my mistake for not doing my own research. You made a bad decision; be a man about it. Good luck tryna abuse that charge dispute. If they bother to fight back, you'll definitely lose.

i'm not abusing the charge dispute. or whatever that means...how can u champion the claims of a seller? u r a buyer, u have as much right as the seller. a seller is protected if i made a false and inaccurate fraudulent claim. they are protected. i'm NOT scamming them. i'm just letting them make one less profit out of a few hundred. if this vendor comes with a better deal of another item. i will gladly buy. any goods u buy regardless is entitled to a refund. if u return the good in exact condition as when u acquire it. this is not about being a man about it or whatever. this is a goods and service dispute. i am simply pointing out facts. i have not at any one time fabricate lies. i made a conscious u turn about my purchase.
Now I just need to get a keyboard in MX Black and some titanium keycaps.
I've got a ducky shine 4, cherry mx blacks. Will these inhibit my leds in any way?

No they will not
Just search "cherry o ring" on eBay. I got a pack of 150 for $2.29 AUD. Hardly any travel reduction (0.2mm?) and they halve the sound of bottoming out the keycaps.
Could you use these in the place of dental bands for an hhkb scilencing mod??
Got a sample pack of O-Rings from WASD a while back and hated all of them. These are different. On Cherry Blue switches, the feel is very similar to an Apple Extended II. Well worth ten bucks IMO. Link to more potato quality photos.

the shipping seems a bit steep for me. $7.37 just to mail a small packet...

They sell transparent o-rings on ebay for like $3 (shipping included). Takes about a month to get them (from China).
Not transparent though. $10 is the about the going price now a days. I used to find clear o rings on ebay for like $3.50 with shipping. O rings are dirt cheap to make, and can be bought by the handful at the right hardware store. Buying clear ones online though, that is a bit trickier although I'm sure there are still $3.50 out there shipping form China.
I'm going to revise the statement I made regarding o-rings.

They dampen the sound of the switches, which, through my experience with 0.4mm rings has made the key feel mushy. I have MX Browns and have tried these rings on two separate occasions which both lasted under a week. It's purely subjective, but without the bottoming out of the keys, it felt about as comfortable as a rubber dome.

Another part (again, completely subjective) about the inability to bottom out, I found myself pushing the keys harder than usual because they felt mushy, which, over long periods of time, hurt my fingers.

I don't want you to not buy the product because of my bad experiences with them. Like Toxic said three posts up, you can get these things for much cheaper than $9.99. Hell, you could use the rubber bands they give you with braces.

Just wanted to clear some stuff up with the post I made before :)
It's a personal preference thing. Just like different keys and caps. For me... O-rings greatly improved the feel for my MX-Blues. Greatly improving the feel and sound. Now I only hear the activation click, instead of the louder hollow bottoming out sound I was getting before. The Shorter depth to bottoming out has improved my typing as I typically pound the keys way to hard. The softening of the landing on bottoming out has caused my fingers less fatigue when typing up large project statuses.

O-rings can come in many different thickness and hardness ratings. I wonder which type gave you issues. I'm also curious what aspect of the o-rings "make your fingers hurt."

I totally understand your point with the MX Blues. My bad!
