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

  • SWITCH: Cherry MX Keyswitch "audible click" green keystem
  • Life (at 5 V, 1mA, no load): 50 million cycle
  • Operating Force: 70g

***Please note this is just the Green Cherry microswitch and wire connector. You'll still need to buy an OBS-MX Plunger separately to use it with a Sanwa OBSF-30 or OBSC-30 Rim which is not included. OBSN-30 work, but not with switches that use tactile feedback or a bump (Blue, Green, Brown, Clear)***

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

Good if you have a heavy hand.

When I first tried using normal Sanwa buttons, I Was DISGUSTED. I literally threw my first set in the bin - as they were screw type and incompatible with this mod(YOU MUST USE THE SNAP INS).
Even though my panel is too thick for them to snap in, I simply drilled the holes extra tight - I Actually drilled standard American sized holes and sanded them by hand until the buttons just barely fit, and broke the snap tabs off. I don't REALLY think these are advisable with a wooden panel, but I have a thing for Oak.
The buttons themselves are incredible. Some might say GREEN is too heavy - but I've used BLUE switches before and I would seriously set off buttons just brushing by, same as with the stock button. These give a better firmness. It's still lighter than a proper IL button with cherry D44X - but only due to IL's having a metal spring.

Hats off to PAS for having the best custom stuff.
