Haimu switches

I've got two packs of Haimu switches (tactile and linear) and they both woth it.
Lubing is kinda average 3/5, not very consistent. They are not super smooth, hovever for me this is a good combination of scratchiness and lubing.
Tactile Haimus sounds a bit quiter that regular lubed linear switcher. And linear Haimus are really quiet. At the same time they are are not as mushy as silent switches with rubber dampeners.
For me this is a perfect "office" switch.

Wonderful alternative to lubed Boba U4 62g

I found I didn't need to lube or film these to have them feel similar to my lubed Boba U4 switches, so huge time and money saver. It's a little less quiet than the U4 but quiet. What sound comes out is deeper than the sound coming out of the U4. It's like if you took a thocky tactile switch and then lowered the volume so it's mostly just for you. Or took a U4 and made it thockier while still keeping it quiet.

The Whisper switches feel like they have a slightly bigger bump (though the shape feels the same), slightly heavier (3g spring difference), and the bottom out feels more solid compared to my Boba U4 switches. All that makes for a very satisfyingly tactile silent switch.

FYI, I like my white backlights, so I tried putting the Gazzew clear tops onto these Whisper switches to improve the light shinethrough. Unfortunately they don't fit because the top is too small for the clips to snap into place. For completeness, I can't put Boba U4 stems into Whisper bottoms either; the stems get stuck into the bottom.

Thanks for the in depth review! We love these stock as well and the tactile bump is indeed very satisfying ~

Amazing Silent Switch with Great Tactility

Are you looking for a silent switch without that mushy bottom out? Well, then this is the switch for you. Firstly, the switches come pre-lubed, so there is little to no spring ping and no leaf ping from what I can hear. The switches are fairly smooth with some scratchiness due to the POM stem, but it's nowhere near an NK Cream. As far as tactility goes, the switch is in the medium/high tactile range (IMO). I would consider the bump less than a Boba U4T, but definitely more tactile than a brown switch.

When it comes to the bottom-out feel of the switch, it does not feel mushy like most silent switches. The stem of the switch is silenced by having protruding legs on the bottom and top of the sliders (similar to the legs of a stabilizer stem). This makes the bottom-out feel relatively close to a normal switch, while still being quiet. Also, the bottom housing has two holes that also help dampen the noise.

I would highly recommend these switches if you are looking for something quiet, tactile, and not mushy.

Great feel but inconsistently lubed.

I'm thankful I got some extras of these since a good chunk (a little less than 1/3 of the 140) were not lubed to my liking. You can easily test it by just pressing it next to your ear. Most of the time it was under lubed- you could feel the scratchiness or hear spring ping. It's a simple fix, just put those wonky ones aside or on an area you don't use as much (or lube them yourself). They are quieter than some lubed Gateron Clears I had and are very nice to type on. I hope they make more of these unique silents since they don't feel mushy like normal silents.

Note that the video I attached is recorded with an iPhone so not the best quality and the stabs are loud because I hadn't modded them yet.

Half a step away from being the perfect silent tactile

The stem design of this switch doesn't use any rubber dampeners at all, so the bottom-out is a lot less mushy than other silents. However, the top of the stem slider bit also tries to use the same plastic dampener design - however it does not work as well given how small the top dampener has to be. Perhaps in a future revision, rubber can be used to silent the topping out sound, and these would be the ultimate silent tactiles in terms of feel and sound.
