The thing that kills me about everything that isn’t the all black cherry housing, is the sound. I don’t know how to describe it, but it’s really obvious in the side by side at the end. The Tealio housing, maybe because it’s transparent, has a higher pitched sound to it.
I’ve noticed this with Gateron Yellow, the Tangerines I just got, Kailh linears (speed and pro), and Outemu Ice Silver. It’s something about the transparent housings.
Another example would be ergo Clears with cherry housings vs MOD Switches / Zealios / Outemu Ice Purple, etc… The all black cherry housings have a slightly warmer sound to them.
And I am not even referring to the bottom out (though it is more noticeable there) only. You can hear it on the upstroke too when the switch resets. The transparent housing switches I mentioned have a ‘colder’ sound to them than the cherry housings.
Or am I just a lunatic and imagining things?
