The low profile keyboard market asked for it, and now they are here!The first, purpose-built from the ground up, silent low profile keyboard switches are finally available! LowproKB is proud to announce the new Ambients line of silent choc switches, which will transform your rig into an office-friendly tool, or a late-night warrior's weapon. Designed in partnership with Kailh engineers, the Ambients line of switches will work on any keyboard that is Choc V1 compatible. Yes you read that right, both the keycap interface and the PCB footprint remain unchanged from earlier Choc V1 switches, so your existing keyboard can use these new switches.

The Ambients are based on the original Kailh Choc V1 switch, but are a completely new design, having all their parts redesigned to accommodate the new components required to quieten the typical switch noise. Silicone bumpers have been strategically placed within the new design to buffer both the down and the up stroke of a keypress, all while not creating a mushy feeling while typing.

Dymga Defy thumbs

I use Kailh Silent Pinks in my Dygma Defy but it originally came with Silent Browns so it had Brown Chocs under the lower thumb cluster. I was not a fan. Swapped them for the Ambient Twilights; perfect. Now II see a ZSA Voyager in my future and it will have Twilights or maybe even Nocturnals.

Chalky, marbly, and very quiet.

Ambients line up is fantastic. Love the sound.

35gf is a nice sweet spot for super light with tactility to feed-back into your fingers and prompt you to head to the next key, best WPM I've had is on 35gf switches. 1.5/3mm short stroke also helps a lot too.

Lube made barely any difference to both stem and spring, but worth doing the stem since it's easier to access than MX style stems. Don't bother with the spring. Stem lube just smooths out the chalky sound a bit and brings out a little more marble.

There is a slight increase in resistance at the end if you bottom it out. Otherwise unremarkable linear feel. On the voyager it's generally got issues with inconsistent feel, so take with a pinch of salt.

Silent

Really quiet switches. I switched normal Kailh red with these on zsa voyager and the keyboard now is almost completely silent.

These caps are a wonder.

Previously I had been using some kind of red caps which had claimed to be the quietest caps available. They were too soft and were still too clacky.
These caps are completely different; these have a better resistance without being too heavy and are so much quieter.
Will definitely be ordering more for my other keyboards.

Very quiet, very soft

These are very quiet. On my board they make a very faint pleasant sound, kind of like pencil on paper. Way quieter than the only other "silent" switches I've tried (Cherry silent reds on an MX board). However they are slightly too light for my comfort - I sometimes get accidental keypresses from resting my fingers on the board. I got them because I was previously using Kailh Choc Browns and found them way too heavy and fatiguing for my fingers, and they are way better than the Browns, but I plan to get the Ambient Sunrises when they come out and hopefully those will be the happy medium.
