What is Keyboard Plate & Case Foam?

A mechanical keyboard shouldn’t just feel good but should sound good as well too. This can be tricky when a lot of keyboard cases have empty space inside which causes sound to resonate. However, sound dampening foam is an amazing solution to that!

Here’s why sound dampening foam can benefit your typing experience.

The Benefits of Foam In a Keyboard (Case Foam, Plate Foam, etc)

When typing on a mechanical keyboard, the resonance produced by it can create an unappealing hollow sound. This is commonly called “case ping”, and can definitely be distracting when typing, especially at night time.

Plate Foam and Case Foam can be used to lessen these unwanted sounds, and are traditionally placed in the case, and on the keyboard’s plate for maximum effectiveness. 

These foams are usually made out of EVA or neoprene as they offer efficient sound dampening qualities.

In other words, a keyboard that includes foam pre-installed within it will give an optimal typing experience for both your fingers and your ears. If you’re looking to make your keyboard quieter at night time, then using one with foam inside is definitely a must.
