Kailh Box White

Updated on: 27 July, 2021

Kailh Box switches feature a unique box design to the stem. The design keeps the stem protected to provide an IP56 rating for dust and moisture. The box design of the stem also reduces any keycap wobble. The Kailh Box White features a click bar design and makes it a fantastic clicky switch. Cherry MX switches feature a click jacket design, and the general opinion seems to favour the click bar design. The click bar results in a nice crisp double-click sound. It is a smooth sounding click and with a medium activation and bottom-out force is a pleasure to type on. For those that like a stronger tactile click, the Kailh Box Jade is a great choice; however, they are louder than the Box Whites.
