JWK Durock Silent Linear Switches are similar to the regular linear switches from Durock. They have the same great materials for their housing and stem while adding muting material to the stem rails that dampen the acoustics of your key strokes. These are great for sound-sensitive environments such as the office or any common areas.

I bought these and was pleasantly surprised at how quiet they were. They felt really nice, too.
Favorite linear switch by far. The weight is good for me, and these are way quieter than even Sakurios stock, but especially so after lubing and filming. Note, the housing supports through-hole LEDS but does not have a cutout for raised SMDs. Unfortunately, my keyboard had raised SMD LEDs, so I had to make a frankenswitch with these and the bottom housing of Gateron Reds. Still incredibly quiet, and does not feel mushy to me.
First time buying durock/JWK. I installed them in a NK65 aluminum edition. and some switches have a bit of wooble or the plat in the nk65 is not cut precisely therefore the switches dont feel secure enough adn they wobble a bit. Maybe this batch was not good or something. But overall the sound is muted so thats what I wanted
Now, I am not the biggest fan of linears but I needed some switches for my work keyboard so I picked these up. Was not a huge fan of the feel (coming from a tactile fan). The dampeners give the switch a really mushy bottom feel (which is just the dampeners doing their job lol) but I just was not a fan. Now, before what I am going to say I would have giving this 4 stars BUT recently I was using the switches to test another keyboard and realized some of the switches had their dampeners snapping and falling of the switch some how. I thought this was really weird and will eventually ruin the silent nature of the switches which is a bummer.
I love the feel and the dampener is great. But the only disappointing part is a weird tacky noise I hear when I click down on the switch. It sounds like either the leaf or the spring is making a metallic click noise.
