Is this the noisiest d-pad in the world?

This is the NEOGEO X Gold Limited Edition. Quite a mouthful. But it's also quite an earful, especially if you're using the handheld unit for some 'quiet' gaming time. Guaranteed to annoy your parents/housemates (and it'll drive any cockroaches mad), the microswitched innards of the handheld's d-pad are incredibly noisy. We've made a short comparison video to demonstrate. So what do you reckon - is this the noisiest d-pad ever?
