In the modern age, computers are inseparable from our daily lives, work, and leisure. As keyboard and mouse have become mainstream, offices, coffee shops, and libraries are filled with noisy clicks and clacks from mice and keyboards. To solve this problem, silent mice and keyboards were introduced. However, are the silent mice and keyboards as quiet as they are advertised? If products fail to provide consumers with noise measurement data for their reference, how should brands and distributors choose a supplier?

Having rich experience with product certification, Allion has done the research based on evidence and we’ve discovered the truth about silent mice and keyboards.

Silent Mouse and Keyboard Case Study

How should consumers compare “silent products”? Our research shows that if silent mice and keyboards can include measured results of data with previous generation products or other brand products, it will be easier for consumers to understand. The silent function is what has attracted these consumers who pay attention to noise issues.

For the test, Allion has selected several popular products on the market. The GRAS 40HF Microphone and the APx500 Flex Audio Analyzer will be used to measure the noise of each product. The results will be measured in dB(A).

According to the data above, Mouse B (silent mouse) has the best overall performance. Although Mouse A (silent mouse) and Mouse C (silent mouse) have slightly better performance than Mouse D (normal mouse), the loudest and softest noise values are lower than the average.
