Nah, as you quiet one thing down, other noises become more noticeable. This has been mentioned here before by the same lawyer before, you might remember it. Otherwise, you could also check the previous thread.

Does anybody know how to quiet my heartbeat down? it's really starting to bug me. :wink:


lol. funniest post ever read in this forum. :D

Is your one a question?

In case, what would you like to know?

I have a Microsoft Sculpt (the one with split design).

It's very quiet in the night and very confortable.
About the mouse I can't really help you there because I game and I value the tactil feedback from the click. I've seen some mods arround though... Google "mouse silent mod". Its normally about using some kind of material between the button and the clicker but it removes feedback. Results in a " muchy" click.

If your priority is silence an oversized trackpad may be the only solution.

Good topic.

I've been hearing good things about wireless mice and keyboards recently, especially Logitech products.

They seem to have a Logitech unifying receiver that you plug into a USB port, and you only need 1 of those. Apparently, all your Logitech wireless products (keyboard + mice, not sure if anything else) will connect to it. You don't seem to need more than 1 receiver.

Now, I'm not gonna get any new mouse and keyboard right now (at least 98% sure) but I want to know if what I mentioned above actually works and doesn't have latency. People have told me that it's pretty much the same as wired mice/keyboard but I'm a bit skeptical. A Cherry MX Red Logitech keyboard that is wireless (and potentially with O-rings) would be ideal for me, I think, but I can't find something like that.

I like Red because it's the easiest one to press, though the keys are quite loud if bottoming out (difficult not to bottom out when typing or playing, but I'm trying to learn not to). I might be open to other keyboard switches, though probably not Blue or Black. Brown might be OK (haven't tried it), but I don't think I'd prefer it over Re.

Also, there probably are alternatives to the Logitech wireless mouse/keyboard setup, right? Surely other companies have something of equal or higher quality?

Mainly Filco/Varmilo/Matias (just the keyboard).

Recently I went on a long search to find a good quality silent membrane keyboard and now have three keyboards, gigabyte osmium mechanical cherry Browns (which I added orings to), apple wireless keyboard, and Logitech k740. None of these keyboards are perfect. I made a video which I hope the community here will find useful if you're in the same boat as me and find that the noisiest most disruptive part of your computing is the keyboard! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WhpYy5S_TMs

Too bad it's only 1000 DPI, which can be slow for larger screen resolutions. OOTH this is typical of office mice.

Ok, the M220's just arrived (I picked this because it was damned cheap on local Amazon, the larger M330 would have costed me twice).

First impressions: very small (probably too small for an average male hand), very light, cheaply built and offers a cheap feeling.

But it's noticeably quieter than any other mouse I've around (Func, Mionix, Thermalright, Steelseries, etc). When I say quieter I don't mean inaudible: it's clearly audible but way quieter than a membrane keyboard, to say, go figure any mechanical switch (either omron or cherry).
The buttons are not too flimsy, given their short stroke, albeit pressing them give me sort of rubbery (I dunno if it's the correct word) feedback, the wheel/third button is the worst and the noisiest.
The radio receiver seems to work properly even within my crowded 2.4GHz long range/high power wlan.

Oh, on my Dell 1080p 22" monitor it seems not too slow, but I guess it's more a matter of personal habits and expectations. :wink:

I picked up the Logitech M330 not too long ago. Overall, I like the sound of the buttons. But unfortunately that's about where it stops. First, this being the "larger" one over the M220, it's still quite small. It appears to be taller than the M220 but the length is still quite short. Coming from an M510 which fits nicely in my hand, the M330 requires me to hold on with my fingers. So I can't rest my hand. The buttons also feel like there's less travel or something. I seem to accidentally click them regularly but that could just be me. The scroll wheel isn't rounded on the sides which feels a little off. And the Logitech Options software has a lot less options then the old SetPoint software. So I'm still looking for my perfect quiet mouse. *sigh*

As for keyboards, I'd been using laptop style scissor switch keyboards for some time now (finding some posts I made on this thread WAY back) but in the last few years got into mechanical keyboards. Of course I was always looking at ways to make them quieter. I have yet to try out the Cherry silent red switches but I haven't been impressed with my limited testing with linear switches. I tried O-rings and while they do help with the noise when pressing down on the keys, they do nothing with the noise when the key returns to its normal position. Recently ZealPC came out with a new product he calls Zealencios. I jumped on those right away as they sounded like they might solve all of the issues with O-Rings. I'm typing on them now and it's great. Still very mechanical feeling but much less noisy overall. Not silent of course but pretty close in volume to my Thinkpad scissor switches but with a lower thonk of a sound and less plastic sounding.

I think my ideal silent keyboard switch would be a silenced Topre 55g. Topre already is pretty silent on the down stroke due to its construction. But the "thonk" Topre is known for comes from that same up stroke noise that O-Rings don't help with. I have a RealForce and recently got some MX sliders for them that came with the silencing rings on them to help with that up stroke sound and it makes for a very quiet keyboard. But mine has the weighted keys which isn't my favorite. The lighter keys on the outside almost feel linear. The Escape key is the only 55g weight and it has a much nicer tactile bump. So a whole keyboard of that would be great. But I've also gone pretty deep on the custom keyboard thing so the standard layout on my RealForce doesn't do it for me anymore. Someday I'd like to build a custom Topre keyboard. But that would be a lot of work.

I love the Topre switches in my HHKB Pro2. Granted, that keyboard's main draw is the layout (which I also love), but the switches are nice if you want something quiet with some feedback. Big difference compared to a true mechanical switch like Cherry or ALPS, though.

Recently bought a Das keyboard pro 4 (cherry brown) and a logitech g610 keyboard (cherry brown).. I'm starting to develop a problem. Both have their pros and cons. Overall the das 4 design and quality is better than anything I've had, but bottoming out is very noisy, o-rings would help here. The G610 is a tiny bit quieter and the keys "feel" faster for gaming, although overall quality isn't close to the das 4. The das 4 was also twice the price, so I'll probably keep it long term in typing setups if I stop gaming. G610 is one of those ~ $100 nice keyboards that I'll probably break or spill something on while playing games. I'll probably do another youtube video comparing the acoustic signatures as the other vid I posted got a couple thousand views and some good pm'd feedback. I know I searched for days looking for acoustic videos on all the keyboards I was looking for and just didn't find them. They're all videos with some dude rambling on and on in a monotone about the features written on the side of the box :lol:

I have been happy with my Logitech G810 with the Romer G switches. Slightly quieter than a Das Keyboard with o-rings. I also have a Corsair with Cherry Red and o-rings.

The G413 is the lowest price unit with Romer G switches.
