    Thanks for your post and your feedback on the yellow switches. I went with the greens since I was enjoying the noise and audible click, but think I would actually prefer the shorter travels of the yellow--not to mention the sound. I hadn't considered the sound of the spring itself, but I agree for your point--for this price is should be damn near perfect.

    Did a little reading the "ping" or "filco ping" thing, as it is officially called. Apparently there is a name for everything. :D

    It seems more common than I thought and even with all kinds of switches, even Cherry switches. There are websites exclusively mentioning and informing about all kinds of mechanical switch experiences over the years, like this one: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/wiki/mcrip#wiki_sound_illusions

    So I guess I will just bear with it. I retested my older failing mechanical keyboard with the MX Brown and on closer "inspection" it got a spring sound, too. Just not as audible because the switches themselves are louder. And it is entirely possible that the spring sound was louder at the beginning, as one hint suggests:

    All the other options seem to be a little over the top imho. Sound mats, lubing...nah, wont do any of that. Logitech Romer G switch users might though...tehehe. :D
