They're mechanical switches--what do you expect? The noise made by these switches is usually viewed as a feature, not a drawback, and most mechanical keyboards are certainly not marketed for the workplace.

But I'm pretty sure that anyone who spends the money on these would probably already know about the amount of noise that mechanical switches would inevitably produce.

If you still insist on using Cherry MX switches while keeping the noise to an absolute minimum, why not try Cherry MX Silent switches if you haven't already? They are quite a bit quieter than the standard Reds and Browns.

Finally, you could always add o-rings to your keys to soften the impact and noise, but that's up to you.


Edit: Anyway, wanted to mention that this is an incredible price for the K70 Brown. I don't think that I've ever seen the Brown go below $99 on any major retailer before (especially Brown, which tends to be more expensive than Blue and Red on average), and several recent $100 deals for the K70 have gone popular/FP, so imo this deal easily deserves FP. I personally bought the K70 Brown almost a year ago for $120, and it is easily worth far more than that to me. Awesome keyboard.

One word.....NOISE

All versions of Cherry MX switches are extremely LOUD. So loud that they do not allow mechanical keyboards where I work.

I own a keyboard with Cherry MX Browns. Typing to so loud it get annoying often.

I got this board when it was for ~100 on slickdeals, very recommended board personally, good for first time mech users as well. It will be louder than a normal keyboard hence the "mechanical" name to it, but regardless it is still worth getting as you can buy rubber o-rings(around 5-10bucks) to sound dampen them.
Actual keyboard use wise: I noticed few months in with heavy use, that during gaming where precise and fast key movements are needed like in fps games like CS:GO, I would notice there was suddenly a delayed key press. After 2 hours of trying to fix it and looking online, all you had to do was go to device manager and uninstall all the keyboard drivers, and replug the keyboard, making it reinstall everything and thus, fixing the problem. ( I also take out the keyboard a lot and use it with other computers, which I think was the main reason why it made the error)
So all in all: Awesome quality board with media controls and nice LEDs, with the chance of having any type of problem with this keyboard being pretty low.

This. I got 150 of them for less than $3 from a local store for my K70. The wide keys (space, backspace, enter, etc) are still a bit obnoxious, but still better than stock (for me).

not all versions are loud... the Reds and blacks don't have a 'click' like the rest of the colors.
