Not sure of your switch life philosophy yet? Check out our clicky Outemu Blues and linear Outemu Reds and Outemu Blacks before deciding!
Note: These are the improved Outemu Box Brown Tactile 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 light tactile feel.
Note that our current stock does not have pin protectors that have to be removed so you can plug these right in!
These switches feature a lifecycle of 50 million clicks.
Note: These are the improved Outemu Box Brown Tactile switches from Gaote. Originally a heavy riff on Cherry MX Browns, Outemu has released a box design to reduce 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 soft tactile bump.
Dongguan Gaote Electronics Co.,LTD, known in the USA as Outemu, is a long-time manufacturer of mechanical switches. Most known for the price accessible switches you tend to see in entry-level keyboards.
All Box Brown MX switches are ordered directly from Outemu, tested in the US by SwitchCaptain, and packaged in sets. Comes with a seal of authenticity.
What is the SwitchCaptain Authentication program?
We are keyboard and mice enthusiasts ourselves, we have spent hours (perhaps days, okay fine, weeks) trying to find particular keycaps, switches, lubricants, and more. Too often we stumble across knock-off products, poor quality components (that can do real damage), and sometimes even stores passing non-genuine products as the real thing! Enough is enough. So we got together and decided on a plan moving forward to stop fake products from hurting all the different folks involved.
The SwitchCaptain Authentication program includes a holographic seal on every item we sell, each seal has a unique code that lets you verify your product came from the original brand.
We want you to know that if you buy a product from us that what you get is real.
Let us be clear:
- All branded products we sell are bought from the manufacturer directly, we do not try to save a buck and purchase from a supplier (which we find super suspicious in the first place). If a manufacturer won't sell to us direct we will not have it in the store. This includes big names as well as up-and-comers.
- This also means that manufacturers ship directly to us, we inspect for quality, package them in sealed bags (so they cannot be tainted), code them into our authentication database, and ship it to the customer (that's you!). We do not allow 'middle-persons' to broker any product, as this opens up an opportunity for manipulation.
- Any product from SwitchCaptain without an authentication sticker is counterfeit or repurposed without authorization. Even our refurbished products are authorized.
- We require all brands to provide us with proof of any certifications they say they have. The onus is still on them of course. If a manufacturer cannot produce for example their RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) when they are supposed to be able to, we will not work with them. While we do not know of all licenses, permits, and certifications, we try our best to keep an eye out.

Shipped fast and great packaging. Perfect switches for my redragon
Loved it absolutely amazing, shipped pretty fast! :)
Exactly the switches I needed and a great price. Like a new keyboard. Sound is perfect.
Replaced outemu blues because everyone was yelling at me because my keyboard is so loud and problem solved with these.
Switched out my reds for these, gives a great tactile feel for typing as described! Fast shipping, and compared to Amazon, the deal is fantastic for the amount of switches!
