    Is there such a thing? I have around £100 as a budget, what's the best I can get?

    All normal Cherry MXes have overal similar sounds with rubber noise dampening o-rings able to help only to bottoming sound.
    (+ there's MX Retro alias Blue with even added extra sound effect for those missing old type writers)
    And while Cherry has nicely quieter variant (MX Silent) of MX Black and Red with dampening for bottom and top position noise those are only used in few Corsairs.
    In mostly expensive models with this basic model being the cheapest.

    Again Logitech has couple keyboard with "Romer-G" named switch made by Omron with quieter sound being one of its goals.
    For some reason higher model G910 is at the moment cheaper than basic G810.

    Anyway they won't be as quiet typical membrane/rubber dome keyboards.

    Thanks. I've seen that Corsair one for just over 100 quid so think I might go for that.
