We are proud to introduce the OBS-MX Cherry modification for an Sanwa OBSF or OBSC.  These drop microswitch and plunger replacements, dramatically improve the longevity and performance of standard buttons.

Why should you use OBS-MX buttons?
1) Tested at Evo and received rave reviews (with one exception for those who like clicks... and this will be addressed soon!)

2) More sensitive, the average button from Sanwa or Seimitsu requires 200% of travel to actuate, other Cherry MX based buttons require 300%!!! The OBS-MX reliably actuates at half the travel of a Sanwa OBSF, giving you a competitive edge. With the MX precision these won't go off if you brush them but any intentional presses are fast and accurate!

3) They fit you existing buttons and allow MX upgrades at a fraction of the cost. You don't have to pop buttons out, just pull the microswitch and plunger, drop the OBS-MX buttons in and you are ready to go.

4) The most versatile button on the market. We don't just allow for you to do LED mods, we make it easy. The OBS-MX rev. b comes with through hole solder spots for easy common Cathod RGB or single color LED mounting. This allows the use of Remora and future editions will allow for easy Kaimana installs!

5) The custom caps are US molded, and the parts are assembled in the US with 100% testing

OBS-MX Blues Completely Change Your Buttons

I am a fan of Cherry MX switches, especially the blues and the greens. The blues I received add a definite audible click as well as tactile feedback upon activation. They completely change the experience.

I am no competitor, but I favor these over the traditional limp-feeling Sanwas that give no tactile feedback and only a hollow, weak sound when you bottom out.

!!!ATTENTION!!! You must press the switch and plunger together FIRMLY (be careful, but give it enough to fully seat the + into the plunger) in order to get optimal travel distance and full switch activation. I did not push firmly at first and wondered why half my switches didn't work and had no click. All is well after making sure every one of them was firmly mated together.

AWESOME!!!

Got the red switches w/plungers and dropped them into my standard Sanwa's. These are EXCELLENT! Highly recommended if you want a more sensitive button and a tighter feel than standard looser OBSF-30's. They don't wiggle as much. The red switches have about even resistance to the Sanwa's. They might require ever so slightly more, but it's probably due to the snugger fit. However they activate instantly. They are also about 25% quieter with a lower pitched sound when pressed. Definite plus! The black and red plungers also match Sanwa stock colors perfectly. Tip for install: Make sure the plunger is ALL the way seated onto the switch, otherwise they won't register when you think you have it in there. Align the switch/plunger carefully and push down all the way firmly. Once they are in it is niiiiice! Also great that I didn't even need to remove the button housings from my stick to install. Great stuff Paradise Arcade!!! A+!

HAVEN'T WANTED ANOTHER BUTTON SINCE

once I got my hands on these I couldn't play on anything else . these things pretty quick and if you're looking for that quick edge over your anyone else look no further . so if you have these OBS-MX buttons with the Brook universal fighting bored you are in good shape . get these buttons before they go out of stock .

Not bad. not bad at all

Bought some blue switches and installed them into my buttons. The click is definitely noticeable. Force needed to activate the button is slightly higher than stock OBSFs.

Great if you want some feedback when you press the buttons
