A classic

Cherry blacks are a classic switch and although they do they a while to break in, they feel and sound amazing after that. I am happy with my mx blacks after using them for a while, and hope to use them on a moment if I can snag one. 9/10 switch.

cherry good cherry very good

MX Blacks are still one of the best sounding switches on the market. Cherry obviously is not known for innovating on their current line of switches, but their full nylon housings just sound better than the vast majority of recent switches. They obviously need work if you want them to be JWK smooth, and their springs are doodoo, but nothing beats them imo.

Really good sound profile

The reliable mx blacks, this new version needs some lube as all switches, but got that really deep sound profile!

Cherry scratch soo good

Hyperglides are one of the most satisfying switches to use over a long period of time. However, if you absolutely hate any kind of stem scratching, then be aware they can be a little scratchy in stock form.

Signature sound - needs work

Just got 100 of these for my Mr. Suit and I’m a little underwhelmed.

While the MX Hyperglide Blacks are known for their iconic sound signature, their smoothness is what is the major drawback here. They will require a long break-in process or a diamond polish to achieve a smoothness closer to any newer 0.55+ cent switch or even cheaper JWKs.

If you’re looking for that Cherry sound signature and are willing to put in the work to make them smooth (or don’t care about the smoothness), get these. If you don’t really desire the Cherry sound but want still want a relatively “cheaper” switch, get a JWK.
