Guys, the Halo Trues are a bit too loud and heavy for me. Would there be a switch that has the same characteristics of the Halo True but lighter and more silent?
Perhaps. Let us see if someone with the Clears will chime in.
I should be receiving mine by Friday.
just received mine... i have halo clears, what do you want to know? this is my first mechanical keyboard so... cant really help you THAT much :D
Hmmm if it is your first mechanical keyboard and you dont know the characteristics of the other switches I dont think you will be able to help me :(
I wanted to know how loud and heavy the clears are, but you would need something to compare them to
my clears are a little louder than MX Browns, and stiffer.
Thing is, you're trying to compare to halo true, which is literally only available on this board and trying to be comparable to Topre.
You're better off waiting for a mech keyboard enthusiast who has trues on their own board to chime in, because none of us without trues have ever seen or heard them.
This is true (kek) - but I'm sure some people bought one of each to try both switches, so maybe one of those crazy people can chime in.
That great man. I had a Ducky board with Browns and they were already a bit loud to me. If Halo Clears are louder, then I think the Trues are my best chance really.
yeah @dream3 I've got o-rings on some of my keyboards and it significantly reduces noise levels.
My Leopold board I brought to work has a noise reducing pad built in (it has browns) and it's super quiet.
So that's definitely a possible solution. And they make clear o-rings that dont mess with the lighting
Cool, will try it out. Any good places to order clear orings?
Granted, this is my first mechanical (although I have played with switch testers and found myself to be an MX clear guy), but I will say that with the halo clears, I work in an office that is literally a house, and in the room I'm in, I have 4-6 other close by me. I haven't driven anyone to insanity YET, but they also have noise cancelling headphones in case they get annoyed. I've heard from others that it wasn't as loud as they expected (I warned them it might get noisy once this bad boy came in).
Also, as far as feel goes, I'll just say it has a overall smooth feel, but gives that tactical "click" at the end. It's been a nice experience so far programming on it for hours on end. I wanted something in the tactile range that wasn't as crazy as an MX blue, so I went for the clears.
