    I doubt it's ALL bullshit (unless you sequester the word "audiophile" just for stuff like this).
    But there is some frankly hilarious stuff out there.

    I'm not sure it's much different to things like the magic face creams, or all that Gwyneth Paltrow stuff, or a lot of the "pretend healthcare" shizz, and they seem to get a pretty bump-free ride.

    I don't think it's right. I was just making a comparison with equally useless products that are legal to sell. Plus it's America, the land of virtually no consumer protection.

    If I had 350 quid spare I'd take them up on their 30 day guarantee. Luckily this fool and his money can't be parted 'cos I ain't got it.

    Saul Goodman It's all good, man

    I was going along with it until I saw the price tag. They look like £50 phones, not £350

    I don't know enough about how the ear works to make a judgement but there seems to be no whiff of woo.

    Is it science?

    Yes they are. But there can be better.

    That sounds....difficult. How did you do that? Let me know, I'll buy it.

    A colleague has a pair, I tired them. The basic idea is sound, how well the tech can implement it I don’t know. Suffice to say, I put them on, they bleeped a bit, then sounded pretty good.

    I'm surprised to hear you say that. Is the idea really sound? And are they £350 good?
