Even if it is low-profile keyboard and, compared to G15, a very thin one, Lycosa is much more noisy, with buttons making full range of noise to draw you attention.

The keys are quite loud, especially the space bar and can be heard distinctly in a quiet environment so the headphones might isolate the sound of the game but the Lycosa is an entirely different issue.

Same, mine's fairly quiet most of the time... Except when I really really get pounding on it... like in this post now. It's fairly loud when I really get into it. Mostly just because of the space bar being very "slappy"

My local OfficeMax and BestBuy both have all their keyboards out on display. Might want to see if a store around you does the same deal so you can check for yourself before you spend any money.

When I bought my keyboard I was down to the Logitech and Lycosa and liked both of them, but the feel of the Lycosa keys wons me over even though it's louder. As long as it feels comfortable to you the Logitech should be what you are looking for.
