These premium switches are made by Outemu and feature a very tactile keypress as well as silencing pads installed both on the top and bottom of the stems. This dampens the sound of the keypress going down as well as on the way up.
These switches around the same amount of tactility as Cherry MX Clear switches.
They are PCB-mount, but the two plastic pegs on the bottom of the housing can be trimmed off to allow for use with a plate.

I really enjoy using these switches, the delivery time was great! Coming in three days! Although some switches came slightly bent, you can easily bend them back. If I were to order here again, I would be happy to do so.

Bought a set of these after Flashquark sent me the Horizon Z to develop QMK on. The Horizon Z has these switches (the lighter spring variant) and I loved the feel. I decided to buy a set for my daily driver keyboard (a modded Redragon K556).
Since the K556 is a 3-pin Outemu socket board, I had to clip the extra two pins which was slightly annoying but not too bad. The switches installed fine and I just love typing on these! The K556 had Outemu Brown switches and these are basically an improved Brown. They are stiffer, which I like (got the 68g spring variants) and they’re quieter as well. They also have a significantly pronounced tactile bump. I like tactile switches and I wished the browns had a bit more of a pronounced click. These do! Love them!
A few switches came with bent pins unfortunately, ended up not using them as I got a few extras. Since it’s a hotswap board I didn’t want the pins breaking off in the sockets. If this were a solder board I would’ve been fine with them.
