These Outemu Box Blue MX Clicky keyboard switches feature a nice tactile bump and a solid click. They are great way to get started and get a feel for clicky mechanical switches.
Outemus are fantastic for modding too. Due to their accessible price, you can experiment worry-free! For example, you can add JSpacers to make Jailhouse Blues. This will turn your clicky switches into fantastic tactile ones! Interested? We've got you covered!

Note: These are the improved Outemu Box Blue Linear switches from Gaote. Outemu has released a box design that reduces wobble. The leaf has been strengthened and is on display in the transparent top-housing. The new tooling leads to a reduced scratch and a nice heavy linear feel.

These switches have a lifespan of 40 million clicks. 

Note that our current stock does not have pin protectors that have to be removed so you can plug these right in!

Great Service, Product & Shipping

Received my blue switches 4 days after ordering on the 4th of July. Switches came in nice tin container. Installed switches without a problem, and they perform, fell and sound great.

Great switches!

Ordered these for custom macro pads, they work flawlessly! Nice sturdy clicks, much better than I expected for the price, I'll be coming back for more when I start my next project

Fantastic Switches

I've had a bad experience buying switches before, and these switches really turned that around. The switches took a while to arrive, but it was really great when they showed up and got them installed. They are just as clicky as I was hoping, and they also look really nice with my Redragon K556. They provide a very nice feel and were very easy to install. Over all 10/10 experience, and I love these switches!

Top Tier With JSpacers

Stock they're your run of the mill blue switch, just a tad heavier and higher pitched. If clicky switches are your jam, you may like them.

Where these switches really shine is after modding them with some JSpacers and a little lube. Totally transforms them into a relatively smooth and overall fantastic feeling tactile switch without breaking the bank.

Great switch

I have spent a long time chasing the "holy" grail of silent tactile switches and had a handful of Gateron blues left over from a board built by a friend. I was shocked to find them quieter!

So far have only compared Outemu and Gateron, these have less wobble, just a hair stiffer and lower in tone. Pin protectors are a nice touch. A few times felt a key bind while typing, but that'll probably clear with break-in.
