I stuff my mouth and nose with these during my late-night listening sessions. For some reason, my HD650's don't seem as suffocated and stuffed up, they really do wonders for the headstage!

If the implication is that people who believe in cables also must surely believe is silly stuff like this, I hate to disappoint you, but....

Check out this post in AA:

Now, who are we to say that pebbles do not work? Remember, most of us have not tried them. The poster in AA has. Are we going to be nihilistic naysayers? Are we going to to make him look like an idiot, a gullible spendaholic fool by doubting his sincere observations? Nothing could be further from my intentions, at least.

The inevitable conclusion: according to widely accepted audiophile standards the Pebbles do work, just like esoteric power cables. The evidence is just as strong and compelling.

Go pebbles, go.

no audio cables are not similar to pebbles, nor should the two ever be used in the same sentence,

cables have direct physical contact with the signal path, the electrons of the signal travel through them. Pebbles do not. the pebbles are marketed as acoustic treatment for the room, and has no correlation.

My theory about such things [tweaks] is that their predominant purpose is to
extend the purchasing 'rush' of obtaining ones new and shiny hifi.
After all the reading yearning and seeking the coveted hifi finally arrives
and once the new thing buzz has worn off what then? [play music? ]
Can't justify buying another one, so it needs pampering and lavishing with exotic
gifts of precious metals and shiny stones, each offering with it's own little acquisition rush.
Shopping therapy!

Thats the first thought that came to mind too.... another attempt to categorize all audiophiles as audiofools.

No, the point is that they /do/ work, just like the mighty avocados

What brought cables up? We're just gently mocking yet another scheme at fleecing the gullible. Like the $1000 wooden stand that will make your room acoustic heaven.

I agree with you but I believe the two get mixed in by the "promise" of high end cables not making a sonic difference in someone's setup (then that person thinks high end cables are b/s), most of the cable market is just a standard cable with fancy dressing and a catchy name...unless The cable maker has proof they spolled the actual wires themselves from scratch, and like pebbles there are also cable risers and other tweaks that one person may say...."come on a cable is a cable".

I have yet to hear any cable make a difference worth a price of $150.00 or more....but I am a cable believer and also I like trying dumb tweaks..hehe

I'm more of a rainbow foil believer.

This pebble prattle is exactly that: pure rubbish.
