Quite an interesting project - can someone, more experienced in audio engineering, comment whether this is snake oil or has real potential?

It's not really an audio engineering question and more about design at this time. Looks to be Chinese buds and drivers set up for replaceable cables. Goodness will be based on bits chosen and tune. Great idea for those that break a lot of cables but personally, I don't like how modular it is. 3 connections before you get to the DAP and what's probably a pretty heavy coupler makes it unique but I'd have preferred a continuous replaceable cable instead of all those bits and connections. They're certainly reasonably enough priced and appear to be a getting setup for direct sales.

In a recent email from IRONBUDS they announced that they would be giving away 

FREE TIPS for any earbud headphone to anyone. some of these tips retail for $20 and you don't even need to purchase their revolutionary product. They want to prove to the world that they are a different kind of company. http://bit.ly/FreeEarBuds
