Healios v2 Review

Linear switches are great if you look for a smoother typing experience from your keyboard. The linear switches are silent compared to the other mechanical switch types, tactile and clicky.

The Healios v2 switches from Zeal Pc are linear, and you will get a great typing experience from a linear switch.

If you like typing for long, then the Healios v2 switches can be an excellent choice for you. When you work in offices or if keyboard switch noise can be a concern, the linear type of switches can be a saviour for you.

Housing and Body

The Healios V2 has a transparent housing, which will not block any lights if you mount it on a keyboard with RGB lighting. Thus the lighting would be great.

The build quality of the housing and the switch is also good. Hence the switches would be a great choice to use with an RGB lighting keyboard setup.

Stem

The stem of the switch is of orange colour and is the silent type, that is when you click you won’t get any clicky noises which you get with clicky switches in mechanical keyboards.

The stem feels smooth and silent when clicked. Every click feels consistent and upto the mark.

Spring and Force

The spring fitted in the Healios V2 has a bottom-out force of 63.5g. So, it is not too stiff and is fine.

Mount

The Healios v2 switch can support a keyboard that has a plate mounting. These switches have added two plastic legs in the bottom that add rigidity when you solder it on the PCB.

You need to check your mechanical keyboard PCB has additional two pin mounting holes in it for the two legs of the switches. Otherwise, you need to remove the switch legs to mount to the keyboard PCB.

The mounting process is straightforward, and these switches fit pretty well to the PCB.
