O-rings are pretty effective at dampening the noise of mech keys, as long as they're not the super-clicky type (blue?).

Corsair Strafe Silent Mechanical Keyboard. If you are in party chat, your friends won't hear your keys at all.

brown/red/black switch are pretty silent, on top of that you can install rubber 0 rings to further reduce the noise
a plus is that they will reduce the bottom-out distance too brining it closer to how keys do actuvate on a rubberdome keyboard

if the issue is your mic picking up the keyboard clicks then you might also look into eg usb soundcards or headsets that let you reduce noise coming from your environment (noise reduce filter) or use a mic-foam to damphen the incoming sound, this will also act like a noise reduction filter
alternatively a less sensititive mic works too

There's also a push-to-talk binding on the Xim.

If using OBS, the noise gate can remove all kb sound, unless talking at the time.
