Honestly the keyboard isnt that loud at all. Maybe I am a quiet typer and i tend to glide my fingers between keys so I don't hit each key with too much pressure to the point where it sounds like i am a mad typer (lol). Anyway, I loveeee the clickey feedback sound.
It's not that loud...
I agree the audible feedback is nice.
I like it as it gives me that nice feedback, probably the same reason I like having a mechanical keyboard. Maybe it's a psychological thing? Though I could see how loud keyboards would be kinda disruptive in a quiet environment with other people around. I just wish they keys were uniform in the way they click. Every (new) macbook pro I've typed on has different spots where keys sound/feel different.
Thumbs up for the dreamcast peeking out of the side of the video.
I should have noted, that isn't mine - I borrowed it from YT. I chose it since the IBM M keyboard is arguably the holy grail of keyboards, and I just love the sound.
I'm currently using one of these with Cherry MX Brown mechanical switches.

It doesn't have quite as nice a sound as the IBM M (or the Cherry MX Blues), as it's a tactile but not a clicky switch (I love the clicky sound, but the walls are so thin here that the clicking at 3 AM could make the other residents a little unhappy!)
I love mechanical too. And I think it is somewhat physical and somewhat psychological, because I can type faster with the tactile feedback, use the sound to get into a pattern of rhythmic thinking, and can find my home keys easier. But also, when I hear the sounds my mechanical keyboard makes, I feel like I am getting a lot of work done with all those sounds of productivity!
I wish a company like Corsair offered a Mac-oriented mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches in Apple colors. For me, it is such a big improvement in the overall experience of use!!!
I didn't mind the click feedback but what I didn't like was how the sound was not uniform across the keyboard. The outer keys were almost silent and the inner keys were much louder than expected and that gave it a weird feedback to me.
As a side note, you sure ask a lot of questions/threads. Lol
