June 30th, I won a coupon code to try out the Havit Low Profile keyboard for a hefty price of $6. At this point I’ve only own a keyboard with MX Browns, and what I didn’t expect to happen is to love these low profile switches so much that I lost all ambition to even look at MX keyboards anymore.
So far, the keycap legends haven’t shown any sign of wear, but the keycaps are in the early stages of developing a shine. I really wish we could get some funds together to create molds for PBT, I think the upstroke resonates better due to the double stem keycap design, and its has wonderfully simple stabs that are very silent and from what I can tell the only sound difference comes from the upstroke with larger keys having a lower pitch. I really wonder if the stabs are special for Havit/Dareu because oddly enough there have a special top house just for the switches with stabs that have a slot to snap the stab into. Seems odd to me that Kailh has made two separate molds instead of just putting the stab slot on every switch. I just love how I don’t need a keypuller to take the keys of, its so simple and easy to clean the keyboard.
I love how fast and accurate these switches are, and being lower to the table is always nice for the wrist.
Really wonder how a PBT cap would sound on these switches, Especially if we had someone like Zeal or Input Club develop a better clear-style switch for KLP.
What has been your experience with Kailh Low Profiles? Are you interested?
