I’m not sure why these “quiet” keyboards are so popular. The audio feedback is just as important as the tactile feedback for ergonomic reasons. Cherry MX Blue would be my first choice.
I find my HHK has about perfect audio feedback. Also Topre for life!
I agree on the audio feedback. I had a Das with brown switches and ended up selling it in favor of a Leopold with blue switches for that reason. The Leopold was also $50 cheaper than the CODE.
Why do you need audible feedback on a keyboard?
I think “need” can probably be replaced with “enjoy the sound of”/
As someone with probably too many mechanical keyboards, I think there is a time and place for both. Many workplaces would frown on MX Blues (luckily not mine). I actually really like MX Browns as well, mainly because they are lighter than Blues.
Odd that WSAD made a new domain for this keyboard when they have it on the main site (http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/). It looks nice enough, but I see no reason to choose the CODE over a Ducky Shine III that offers all Cherry MX switch types and led colors.

Anyone else here a fan of trackpoints? It’s become a must-have for me. First Dell then Lenovo laptopss, and the last two keyboards I bought had the built-in trackpoint.
One of them was a model M clacky thing but the construction ended up to be poor and a few keys either stopped working or would stick. I replaced it with an external Thinkpad keyboard sans trackpad (but with trackpoint).
I am! I really enjoyed having a trackpoint when I had a thinkpad. Made the mistake of getting a Surface Pro and the keyboard is horrendous. What I really want, but can’t find, is a tenkeyless mechanical (with Cherry reds), with a trackpoint and extra usb port. No such keyboard exists…
