They're cheap enough, so why don't you try them and report back? It may be hard to blind test them, though. \:\)

Interesting. I wonder if an average user like myself would even notice the difference. If you do try it, do let us know.

They state that 5000 audiofiles have purchased and not a single return. But you're right, how could you do A/B testing?

I've always said, there are over 350 million people on the content, and all I have to do is find a way to get 1/350th to give me a single dollar, and I'm a happy guy. Now that shouldn't be that hard.

The business idea here is very sound. Charge a very low price for something that may or may not imporve the sound, and if people don't hear a difference, due to the very very low investment, they probably won't send it back. I mean, whats 20 bucks when you have thousands invested in equipment. That way you end up with over 5000 satasfied customers that you can use in your maketing to get more people to buy.

Brilliant!!!

I also loved the line "...5000 happy audiophile customers can’t be wrong!"

What movie was that? They needed to come up with some cash and the idea was to sell some widget. They would send some junk out and when people asked for a refund, send them a check with "Giant DI#@DO company" or something more vulgar. The assumption being that no one would cash the check because they would be too embarrassed! \:D

I think it was Lock Stock...something Barrel

Have you tried inserting a Q-tip in the phase lens of an Axiom tweeter? It does wonders for improving imaging if you are sitting far away from them.
