Re: Cherry Red or Brown is Quieter? The noise from all of the non-clicky cherry switches is caused by stem contracting the bottom and top surfaces inside the switch casing. So in other words, there is no difference in sound between these switches because the only difference is the slider.
In all cases, which Cherry keys are quietest?
Our most popular switch. Cherry MX Brown switches are tactile and quiet. Excellent for office use. These are a preferred choice for developers, writers, and anyone who works long hours in front of the computer.
And, how can I make my keyboard quieter?
Next, are there any quiet Mechanical keyboards?
The Fnatic Rush mechanical keyboard uses Cherry Red MX Silent keys - which means keystrokes are comfortable, quiet and accurate too. The "silent" might be misleading here though, as there is still some noise, but during testing we found these keys to be a lot quieter than the other mechanical keyboards we've tested.
What makes some keyboards quiet?
Some keyboards are quieter than others, depending on the switch design below the keys. The construction, travel, and materials used in the keys also influence the amount of noise it makes.

What makes a mechanical keyboard loud is the action of the individual switches. ... This is considerably louder than more mundane keyboard mechanisms, which use a sheet of rubber to cover the actuation switches, effectively dampening the sound, but resulting in a far less crisp feel sought after by many typists and gamers.
As an added bonus, these covers often make typing quieter, which helps ensure domestic tranquility if you tend to be up at night, typing in bed, while your better half is trying to get some shuteye. Finally, keyboard covers can be hand-washed with water and mild soap; after letting them air-dry, they're as good as new.
If your computer or keyboard is making a beeping noise while you type, you've probably enabled or activated Toggle keys, and/or Sticky keys. If using other earlier versions of Windows, take the following steps to remove the Toggle or Sticky keys: Click Start. Go to the search field and type Ease.
A silent, light, and linear keyswitch that is nice for typing and great for gamers looking for something lighter than Cherry Blacks. The patented noise reduction reliably minimizes any operating noises.
Cherry MX Reds are relatively quiet, more-so than the tactile and clicky switches such as the Brown or Blue switches. They have a 45g actuation force with a 75g bottom out force. The total travel distance on the MX Reds is 4mm with an actuation distance of 2mm which is standard for Cherry MX switches.
u/clik_clak brings up a good point, Cherry makes a 'Silent Black' and 'Silent Red' switch that has built in rubber bits to dampen the sound. Those are probably the quietest Cherry switch. The Healios by Zeal PC for an off the shelf switch are very quiet.
The Cherry MX Brown switches do come with slightly greater actuation pressure, making them more precise when compared to the MX Red counterpart. As far as sound is concerned, the Cherry MX Browns are pretty much identical to the Reds above.
