How do I louden my Cherry MX Blue's?
« on: Thu, 13 September 2018, 22:45:08 »
This is a serious post. I work in an open office and I hate everything about it, especially the people. I am quitting soon and want to annoy people as much as possible. My weapon is a filco MX blue keyboard. Can I make it louder some how?

Desolder the blues and solder in some Box Jades.

I love the word "louden."
Not even being facetious or sarcastic. I say "louder" as a verb instead of "raise the volume" when watching TV with others.

Another great one I like to use is "embiggen."

You can't make them louder.

Cheapest option is to buy a dirt cheap MX Blue clone board off of Amazon. Those MX Blue clones are usually way louder than actual MX Blues as well as having a more shrill sound and some can even have quite crazy amounts of ping from the mounting plates. $25-$35

Most fun option for an actually good loud keyboard is to pick up some Matias or clicky Alps which make quite a good but still extremely loud sound.

It's a perfectly cromulent word.
