Zealio Silencer Compatibility
« on: Mon, 23 January 2017, 10:17:57 »

Has anyone had any experience using Zealio silencers on a Das keyboard 4, or similar keyboard?
I'm thinking they should work fine, but I'm just hoping someone could elucidate on the results they experienced.

The should work on any nonclicky switch since the clicky sliders have this protrusion on the top that gets in the way with the silencers. I put them on lubed zealios and saw almost a 10db difference but you may have different results (also my measuring equipment sucks) but they are noticeably quieter.

As long as the keyboard uses Cherry style stabilizers, no modifications will be needed. Costar stabilized boards will need some slight trimming on the clips for the stabilized keys.
