Yes Andy,
there is a click if you push them completely, but you don't need to do 
it to activate the button.
When I play in chamber-like situation I am sitting and this makes it 
easy to softly push those buttons.
Of course it would be more difficult to do the same while standing.

Anyway, beside the old tc electronic stomp boxes which are completely 
silent, these are almost the most silent switches I have encountered.
The most silent switches I know are, in order: Rolls midiwizard, 
Rocktron Midimate, Digitech Pmc 10.
But these devices have 1/1000 of  the potential we are discussing here ( 
ok, ok the Pmc 10 is maybe 1/10...)

my best,
