I'm in the same boat, it's like all the existing solutions have their flaws so I'm hoping this would be the perfect middle ground.

KBDFans Rings = too thin, not enough dampen, but doesn't effect switch travel.
Hypersphere Rings = too thick, but dampen really well, but also effect switch travel.

It probably depends on the hands typing. I donít really feel any difference between my HHKB Type-S and my HHKB Pro 2 with Hypersphereís rings installed to be honest. Iím still curious about these though.

I felt like the KBDfans rings are perfect, but I didn't swap to BKE domes or use any lube.

Worst part about it was the install though, so if these are easier to install without any reduced tactility then definitely interested...

I used Hypersphere first then switch to KBDFans right after (same keyboard, Realforce 104UW), and there is definitely a noticeable difference in turns of tactility and travel reduction.

Yeah I agree KBDFans for the most part is not bad, once in a while you'll get 1 or 2 switch that's "sticky".  Sometimes the ring got stuck to the ceiling and when you type on it it goes out of align then the switch won't reset fully.

Hypersphere's dampining portion glued to a plastic ring (non sticky, but stiff) which prevent the ring from mis-alignment, drawback is that since it's 2 layers so it's thicker.

lol I guess silencing properly without the purple slider is pretty hard.

BHuber09:
Have we heard an update regarding these? I bought these and the heavy domes back in Febuary, and I sent an email him back in mid April and he said it would be finished at the end of April.
