Most smoothest / darkest / quietest Hi-Hats you have played?

For smooth, dark and quiet, it'd be hard to get any smoother, darker or quieter than 15" Bosphorus Master Vintage hats.

For crisp, bright and loud, if you don't care about anything except those three aspects, just buy some cheap B8 manhole covers and be done with it. But if you want all of these qualities in some very musical-sounding hats, then Zildjian A New Beats in 14" or 15" are the way to go. Or regular K hats for a slightly darker version of that.
