These look very interesting. How soon are they available? Has anyone tried them? I would love to hear detailed comparisons with mx silent reds and also standard browns...

Looking forward for some reviews and force graphs :)

If it's silent upstroke + downstroke, mx clear tactile bump like + lubbed = big hit stuff :)

The bump sure looks like the Brown's in the pictures above.

Zeal PC's "Zilents": $0.90 / switch (used to be 1.20). PCB-mount only. Minimum 20.
KBDFans Aliaz: $0.55. Plate-mount only. Minimum 20.
KBDFans' Gateron silent brown: $0.38. PCB-mount only.

I would like to have a dampened lubed switch with Cherry MX Clear feel. I am using lubed MX Clears and "Zealencio" silencing clips right now and the clips do jack s**t in reducing sound.

The so-called "Silencing Clips" are fake in every sense of the word. People always get fooled into buying anything when the word "Silencing" is used on any MX based keyboard.

Relax, once you've lost a little of your hearing, then nothing is too loud for you again that includes all the Model-Ms and Fs in this world ;) .

I ordered myself an assortment of 70/80 and 100gr ones. Will report back, once I tested them.

I am really curious about their comparison: Zilents, Aliaz, & Gateron silient.

However, Cherry has not released their silent switches for their clicky and tactile models, and only for their linear models (reds and blacks). I am kind of with them or my taste - I don't need my clicky switches or my tactile switches to be silent.
I may still buy them if they have really good reviews.

The bottomline is, I am really waiting for the linear silent competitors for Cherry to be released.

I can assure you they are real, I have then installed on my keyboards at home. They only dampen the landing and only if you use OEM or cherry caps with crossbars that hit the top of the key switche.

I tried MX Silent Reds at a recent meetup and I was truly impressed. Not just the noise reduction (which actually is not so important to me) but the feel of the switches was improved over other linear switches I've tried. So much so that I've wanted to buy some since that day - even though I prefer tactile switches.

I was willing to wait until Cherry made a tactile version of their silent reds, but seeing these -- I just have to try them man. I've ordered a batch to test @KBDfans ;)
