Eventually I want to get a Topre for work, but I currently use an MX Red with O-Rings and it's not very loud at all...not any louder than your standard rubber dome anyway.  I ended up adding them to my daily driver at home which is also MX Red since I have open headphones, and it helps reduce the bottom-out noise quite a bit when gaming :o  Any of the clicky switches will be much louder even with dampeners, but a board with MX Red, Black or Brown would be idea if you're trying to keep noise down.

I use reds + O-rings and it's like typing on a cloud. If you're a light typer there is virtually no sound.

I also put o-rings on my reds.. Shorter throw with less noise when bottomed out. Feels really nice actually. Worth the fiddly work of putting them on without a keycap remover :D

Yeah it's a great feeling! Very light and gentle.

WASD Keyboards

That is partially for a plug (you can get the dampening rings and custom keycaps from them), and partially pointing out that they will also sell you a kycap puller for $6.

Not that I don't admire the effort of modding a mechanical keyboard without one XD

Butter knife works fine for o-ring stuff as well as changing out keycaps if i you don't have a keycap puller.

Im not going to do it again anyways.. A little hard work gives you at least + 15 hifipoints :) Oh and btw, get the o-rings of ebay instead. WASD is so darn overpriced!

I just use dental bands instead of orings. I know that there are hardness ratings on orings...but dental bands are a low cost alternative nonetheless.

I've done dental bands but really it's so much better feeling to spend $7 on some O-rings on Amazon or ebay.
