The material used in our poron foam kits has been carefully selected to provide the best acoustic upgrade for your board.
Our plate foam is made from extra soft, slow rebound poron. This material is optimal in thickness and density to provide the cleanest, crispest notes with any switch you use.
Our case and PCB foam are made from very soft poron, which has a higher density than our plate foam. This increase in density is much better suited to reduce vibration, decrease hollowness and pinging, and eliminate reverb within the keyboard.
We design our kits with customization and modularity in mind. Our Q Series kits include both the PCB and case foam. While similar, each provides a distinct benefit when used separately. Used together and their effect is increased.
Plate Foam - Installed between the switch plate and PCB
PCB Foam - Installed directly under the PCB
Case Foam - Installed in the bottom of the case
Foams were cut very well and the material is much softer than the stock plate foam. Unfortunately, the switches I bought sound better without the PCB/case foam.
Greatly improves this board. I want to say that the aluminum on the q10 is kind of thin compared to other custom boards. Perhaps it's the shape of the q10 but just brushing the board with your finger it makes a really weird sound. So this kit (using all of the pieces) got rid of that. Fitment in the case is certainly tight given that I also have two layers of tape, so the cutouts for the hot swap sockets are a bit mushed. Nothing that putting it all together carefully couldn't solve.
Really nice that these are available state side as well considering if you got a q10 or another keychron board, and wanted to order this after the fact. You're not paying the higher shipping rates.
