The switches come in a cardboard box with 2 layers of plastic covers protecting both the bottom and top housings.
The EPOMAKER Wisteria (linear) have a 3-color design with a purple bottom housing, a lighter purple for the top housing and a pastel green color for the stem – the tactile variant has an orange stem.
The Wisteria have non-translucent housings but come with an in-built LED slot design to actually allow backlighting from your board to shine through.
The Wisteria have a 5-pin mechanical switch design with a MX compatible structure that can fit 5-pin hot-swappable boards and can be combined with any MX keycap.
The switches has a south-facing LED slot, so consider this and check that your PCB is south facing and not north facing.
With a fair actuation force-travel ratio, the 45gf of force needed with 2.2mm of pre travel (3.6mm total travel) can fulfill the needs of gamers looking for a considerably fast and non-fatiguing switch.
The Wisteria have a good balance of quality mechanical switch sound but a controlled pitch and loudness while still offering a nice smooth typing experience.
The Wisteria have a drier sound profile than other custom switches from the brand like the Jade Blossom but the Wisteria shares the same excellence in the control of scratchiness and pinging.
The switches showed a very smooth travel and a subtle but mechanically pleasant bounce back pop with a higher pitch than Jade Blossom.
Expect a refined switch that can easily surpass the performance of Gateron Pros series.
The neat sound signature is backed up with quality building materials such as Polyoxymethylene and PTFE stem (scratch-less materials), low density polycarbonate top housing and PA66 bottom housing.
