Well, I've promised it for a long time, and now it's finally here; the blue Alps comparison video! Six of the finest SKCMAG examples to show you what impacts casing, density, weight, keycap material and thickness etc. have on the sound. I might do more videos of this sort in the future as well :) .

Hope you enjoy the video! It cost me a lot of money to make xD .

Nec sounds best of them all imo

It surely looks the best of the bunch. Got a lot of charm. Next best is the nutty Omnikey with its two Escapes and outlines where the function row should go!

I’ve got blue Alps in an all metal chassis, AEK I capped custom 60%. It’s a Hasu Alps64 build with aluminium plate and solid alu Lambo case. Sound comparisons with different microphones never really work, but my impression from your video is that the wee bugger is as much louder as you’d think. It’s up there with my Kishsaver.
