So what is this thing made out of? Something like firm silicon rubber?
DASBOOTZ
Doubleshot plastic around a firm rubber dampener.
Are these compatible with plate mounted Halo True switches?
asahaf
No, Kailh housings use a clam shell design.
Anyone know if they would work with the coolermaster masterkeys pro keyboard?
EnigmaAU
Really, any cherry MX or mechanical switches are compatible.
For anyone considering buying these there are three major points to consider
1 - GMK QMX clips
GMK QMX clips are an unashamed rip off of this design, however, they are far cheaper ($40 for 110) and although I have not used zealencio silencing clips they are a near identical clone and therefore I expect the feel is incredibly similar, additionally many reviews which have used both mention a barely perceptible difference between the two.
2 - Feel
This is based on my experience with GMK QMX clips but as mentioned they are incredibly similar:
I have used the QMX clips on two* keyboards
* actually the same keyboard - the corsair K70 (an aluminium plate mounted keyboard) but I used them on it before and after changing the switches from cherry mx brown to zealios 65g
I have used both these and O-rings and I want to say from the outset that these clips are MASSIVELY superior, however they do still have a noticeable impact on they key feel. The key feel is slightly softer with the clips but due to the thin, high density rubber material used this does not ruin the key feel like o-rings do. The key travel is also slightly reduced - about 0.7mm. which does impact the key feel, but, surprisingly is not as server as may be expected.
3 - noise
Once again the noise retained by these is far and away better than that of O-rings, however the strong clack that many people enjoy on mechanical keyboards is significantly reduced - more so than the rest of the switch noise. As both cherry mx brown as zealios 65g are tactile switches I cannot comment on the effect on linear and clicky switches but the switch noise is more noticeable with the clips equipped, this is not a major issue but I thought that I should make people aware of it as the lubricated switches - such as those in the video shown, have a far less noticeable switch noise than non - lubed switches.
Extra - backlighting
For anyone worried about back lighting these feature a hole in the frame to allow back lighting light through without any interference, additionally the light reflecting back onto the casing can produce a pleasant back glow effect, particularly on keyboards with black back plates which usually lack this back glow

Zeal also sells a lubricant specially made for zeal switches on his website, it is a little dear - $35 - however it is high quality and lubricating switches makes a huge difference, mechanicalkeyborads.com also sell dismantling tools for cherry style switches which are super helpful
Sounds like a good idea, also you are in luck because corsair pcb’s are relatively tough so there is a little leeway before you damage them
I bought one of these and it's way better than rings. It reduces the sound of the clicks much more and the touch feeling is better too, i highly recommend.
these clips make linear switches feel mushy XD but as advertised they are quite effective in dampening some of the noise
With the release of the <$30 Plate Mountable QMX clips these Zealencios are officially very overpriced. I have both and while they do feel slightly different. It is not worth the price difference whatsoever. Definitely do not recommend these at this price point. However, the QMX clip drop just ended so if you missed out then I suppose this is your only option at the time.

It's good if you are in Europe but shipping costs to the US kill any savings. If I were to order direct from GMK it would probably be more expensive than the Zealencios in this drop.
jake.perrine
novelkeys.xyz based out of the US stocks the QMK clips
Anyone else have this drop become "backordered"?
:/
Did anyone else just get a "we're sorry" message applied to the discount on the order or am I hallucinating badly?
I plan on using pandealio (panda housing + zealio stem) switches for an upcoming build. Just curious if these, or any other style clip on dampener, will work with the panda housing.
Dotwad11
Pandas do have an MX style housing, however there have been reports of the exact dimensions being a tad bit different, with smaller switch top holes / wider base...It would seem like Zealencios could fit, but no guarantees as it hasn't been tested by us yet.
I'm new here and wanted to know from where will theese be shipped?outside/inside eu?
Evelinp
I think Canada or the US.
Evelinp
Shipped by Massdrop, so from the US.
