Cherry MX Blue switch audible properties
The 'clicky' switch from Cherry is the favourite switch for typing as it has the click that tells the user that the switch is pressed in an audible way, this is in addition to the tactile feel. The click is made by a mechanism sliding up and down inside the switch and as it slides over a bump it clicks. This mechanism can take some time to bed in, sometimes there is more lubrication than other times and on occasion it can be a little sticky. This is another joy of using a mechanical keyboard. We do sometimes find that a Blue switch has a different noise quality to another Blue switch due to the nature of the product. So it is possible that across a keyboard the noise made may not be uniform.
While we pride ourselves on our service and customer support, we are unable to guarantee the audible quality of the click on a Blue switch.
If the audible click is found to be inconsistent and it is disturbing to the user we are happy to RMA the keyboard as per our 14 day satisfaction guarantee but we can't treat the noise the switch makes as a fault and we can't send out a Blue switch keyboard with a guarantee of the noise qualities.
