    They do offer a 30 day money back guarantee, other than some shipping fees no harm in trying them?

    But I pose the question, how does one come upon these Magic results? To simply say, it works but we dont know how, what prompted the designer to even try whatever is in the tube? If these tiny tubes of dust make a notable difference, why not make them twice as big? Or round to incircle the whole wire? Id be more comfortable if he claimed the tubes contained uranium 238 than to have no idea what it is. While it may work exactly as advertised, the manufacturer has done nothing to separate himself from other snake oil salesmen. i.e. Its Magic! Its mysterious! Read my testimonials!, does not instill me with confidence.

    Say it did. What would the ramifications be for sound quality?

    There's very common real world use of ferrite beads to block very high frequency noise.
    Ferrite does have magnetic qualities, and what's the bet that in powdered form its magnetic qualities are negatively affected by moisture - hence the comment about the powder degrading in air.

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    Thanks for this. Im a bit familiar with how comparative testing should be done, and Im always very suspicious when a blind test is mentioned. Unless done properly (which is rather difficult), most such tests are a waste of time and effort.

    So it could be doing pretty much what ferrite clamp does? Although presumably, from the design, less effectively.

    Quite possibly.

    I doubt it. Unless it encompassed conductors and even then the effect would be unpredictable, as the powder is loose and free to settle anywhere in the tube.

    Okay then I'll go against my better instincts and put in five bucks in the interest of keeping an open mind.
