Default ...Did anyone else's N7 keyboard start making different typing noises in 4.4.2?

I rebooted my tablet today and started typing in Google keyboard, and the typing noises sound way deeper and less clicky... The space button sounds like someone throwing a pool ball at a wall rather than someone beating a drum like before. The backspace sounds like a hand drum.

Am I going crazy?

no i think that was one of the many small changes made in that update. i've seen others comment on it before. i personally turned noise on key press off so didnt really notice.

The sound on space bar is the worst.

I agree, that typewriter sound doesn't make sense.

Yeah, I noticed that the sound changed as well, but for some reason I thought it was only in Facebook. Guess I was wrong...anyway, I noticed.

The new key press sound is less noticeable, especially in a group setting, so it's fine with me.
