The keyboard switch is the core component of a mechanical keyboard that determines its feel, sound, and performance. Keyboard switches come in different types, such as linear, tactile, and clicky, depending on how they respond to your keystrokes.

You can choose from a wide range of brands, stem types, forces, materials, and colors of keyboard switches to suit your style and preference.

Keyboard switches produce different sounds, such as clicky, clacky, or thocky, depending on their mechanism and material. Some people find these sounds satisfying and enjoyable, while others prefer them to be quiet and discreet. Keyboard switches also provide different feedback, such as smooth, bumpy, or crisp, depending on their actuation and reset points.
