Question on the life of PRS500 push buttons

I have recently put nextpage previous page on volume up and down since I was feeling that the two buttons on the left side to be a bit unresponsive. I was wondering about the quality of each button, are they all of the same model push buttons(smd component)?

Life of Push Buttons

Because prs 500 is made in japan i believe it uses ALPS (Japan) Tact switch witch is the best. There is 3 categories of them
1st is the softest touch and can have 500000 press
2cond is medium touch and is for 1500000 press
3rd is a bit harder touch and haves 5000000 press
Hope this helps
