Quiet mechanical keyboard?

more_vert
I have a friend that is a loud typist, but he loves his mechanical keyboard. Is there such a thing as a quiet keyboard that still has the mechanical feel?

Is he using clicky switches atm? If that's what he likes about mechanical KB there is not much you can do. If not, there are silenced switches (cherry silenced Red, Roselio ...) that dampen the down and upstroke sound with silicone buffers but they feel a little different - he'd have to try. A cheaper version / tryout option are o-rings to dampen the downstroke. Also like stated before lubing and filming the switch and adding foam to the case does help as well - wont do much loudness good when you prefer clicky switches though.
They have silent tactile and linear switches. Lube and switch film help make a board quiet
