Matias Quiet Click Key Switch Modules x 200


Lots In Stock

The Matias Quiet Tactile Switches are virtually identical to the classic simplified white Alps switches, with a similar force curve and activation force. However they are quieter and the lifespan of the Matias switches is longer, with 50,000,000 actuations (compared to the original spec of the classic white Alps, which was 10,000,000 actuations).

Matias Quiet Click Key Switch Modules x 200 - KS101Q-200

The Matias Quiet Tactile Switches are quieter than other mechanical keyboards, and have a sound level similar to a regular non-mechanical keyboard, they are quieter for two main reasons:
1) The switches have internal rubber sound dampeners, that drastically reduce the impact noise on the downstroke AND the upstroke.
2) The metal tactile leaf on the quiet switches is held stationary to eliminate the click noise. On the clicky switches, it's loose.

The Keyboard Company are a great company to deal with.
They are always very quick to respond and very helpful.
I have been buying from them for a number of years and would thoroughly recommend them.
The Matias Quiet Click key switch is a very high quality unit and I would recommend it.

Delivered to Lithuania in around 7-10 days. Pressing on a Matias Quiet Click Key Switch itself is a bit similar to MX Clear, but Matias has less noise (trashy noise MX Clears have) and MUCH nicer sound and most important feel. I really wait for the last parts to come so I could build it!

Team at keyboardco was very professional and responded to all my inquiries quickly and patiently, switches also arrived promptly!

Very smooth, although a bit annoying secondary tactile event due to the longer contact plate. Another thing Matias could rework is those long dampeners, how hard is it to replicate the smarter Alps dampening mechanism? However, these newer, retooled ones are clearly made with more precision. People should try more of Matias' products. Highly recommend buying from Keyboardco, not only for being one of the few bringing Matias into Europe, but also for their quick reply to my questions. Great service, thanks a lot for your passion!

Very nice switches as well as fast and good delivery.

Nice switches. If you are restoring an old ALPS keyboard, I would rather recommend new Matias switches than any attempt to refurbish the original ones. ALPS don't age well and here is a brand new, high quality replacement.
Side note: they aren't greased anymore, which is a good thing, considering reliability issues in the past. Still very smooth and in that regard better than any vintage ALPS.

I bought that switches to mod Matias Tactile Pro keyboard a little, to have nice clicky keyboard but not so loud and that looks promising. I like how that mod sounds on Tactile pro but I have to modify more switches yet (only tested it on two keys for now).
Well made switches and really, really fast delivery to Poland.

In my opinion these are the ideal key switches in an office environment. They're very quiet and a pleasure to type on.

Great price and fast delivery - 5 stars!

Ordered these to replace some Black Alps on a Dell AT102W.
Very nice to type on, way better than Cherry Browns and equivalents - these are actually tactile.
They are also damped both on the upstroke and downstroke, so very good for office environments.
These switches can also be easily modded to make them either damped linear (open the switch and remove the tactlie leaf) or damped clicky (open the switch and remove the side prongs from the tactile leaf - this CANNOT be undone!)
The service from Keyboardco was excellent, with clear communication every step of the way, including answering questions before I made the order.
