Switch Sound

The Akko V3 Silver Pro leans toward the "clacky" high pitched and brighter sound profile mostly due to its long pole stem and housing materials. There is some slight spring ping in the Akko V3 Silver Pro due to the springs coming unlubed from the factory, but it is unnoticeable during regular typing sessions. As a result of the even shorter travel distance, the Akko V3 Silver Pro sounds clean and crispy. The Akko V3 Silver Pro has a loud and solid bottom out due to the short travel distance and long pole stem and a softer top out due to the light spring weight. 

Here are some sound tests of the Akko V3 Silver Pro:

 

Switch Feel

As the Akko V3 Silver Pro comes with lubed railings and an unlubed spring in its stock form, it provides a very smooth typing experience. The Akko V3 Silver Pro exhibits no scratch and negligible stem wobble. The Akko V3 Silver Pro provides a comfortable typing experience straight out of the box. 

Things to Note

The Akko V3 Silver Pro stock sounds clean and clacky, however there is a slight spring ping which could be easily remedied with lubing the springs. Also due to the shorter travel distance, even in comparison to the average long pole stem, the keypress on bottom out will feel more sudden than usual if you are used to more full travel switches.
