Great review as always.  Definitely would love your thoughts on the Kailh Box White (Clicky) compared to this.

What did you think about the keycaps in relation to your vintage boards of similar profile?

Great review. I always wanted to know what you thought of these.

The white Kailh Box switches are not really comparable imo. The click does sound better but they use a linear stem and there is only the faintest amount of tactility.

Great review. :)

Would you be okay if I embedded your video review on my Aristotle page? That way users have a reference as to what "Zealiostotles" sound like.

I loved the feel of Cherrystotles when I experimented with them and was about to order a full set, unfortunately the tighter tolerances on Cherry upper housing can sometimes can bind the Aristotle stem.

Ignore my post above, I was just trying out my new switch top removal tool and noticed that I had put an Aristotle cap and stem on Cherry housing, which caused the binding. Cherrystotles work just fine.

Still, which one sounds better?

The box whites SOUND a lot sharper, however with a higher pitched click. Aristotles and all of their modified variants are much more tactile, but use the click jacket mechanism, which inherently add some rattle. Its entirely personal preference, though.

your voice is mesmerizing lol
cherry blues were my first clicky switches, but they gradually started to sound annoying, so i moved to tactiles
but after seeing your review and hearing those zealiostotles, i want to try them out one day

great review!

Gatistotles/Cherristotles sound better imo, the click is fuller sounding and a bit lower pitched I think. -stotles still have a little bit of rattle though that does not exist on the boxes, but it's really hard to hear especially compared to mx blues.

BOX's can sound great with thick and tall keycaps, though.
