I bought this sound dampening kit thinking it would keep that rattle down while commuting but I'm sadly disappointed.
That being said it fit wonderfully into my Melody96 build and made the board go from a hollow-sounding aluminum to a quiet, thocky dream. Note that I specifically was going for an "office" build as a gift (so "silent" switches), and the difference the foam made on the noise in a regular use case is pretty astounding.
I highly recommend this kit to anyone who's looking to make their keyboard sound/feel twice as expensive without spending twice as much.
PS: thanks Mr. Ultra for producing all these lovely foam and foam accessories
So, on the plus side, you have an awesome sense of humour and I did eventually get the items.
I took one star away for the speed of delivery which hopefully improves.
But I also received the wrong colours for some of the items. Which were blue instead of black. Now to cut you some slack, I’m guessing it’s because you ran out of black foam and didn’t want to delay the order further.
So I can understand it, and that’s why I selected 3/5. I’m just hoping speeds will increase and only the selected colours get delivered.
That said, chin up and keep going. Have a great new year!
Great product - I used the foam for a NYM06 build. I figured they´d be very similar but no - I needed to cut the foam to fit the case which took quite some time. This is mostly my fault for not researching more. However I think its good to let people know that the foam does not really fit the Nym96 kit that well. Furthermore I believe that the thickness of the foam between the plate and pcb should be reduced to 2mm at most. 3mm is too thick, it has the effect of making the keycap sticking up too much from the case - it looks like a floating key design which is not intended.
Required for keyboard.
This time, assembling the melody, MKutra Foam was used. The distance between the substrate and the plate was about 5 millimeters, and the actual plate shape coincided with the shape of the foam.
Be careful when checking the back of the switch when inserting it to make sure that the foot of the switch is properly positioned.
Adding foam will soften the hand and make the sound sound rhythmic. In addition, the ringing sound caused by the foam on the ground is also reduced.
I think it is essential for keyboard assembly.
More forms of foam are desired to be developed.
