These soft, tiny feet provide unsurpassed isolation for compact components weighing from four ounces to about ten pounds. The same specialized silicone-based material that Soft Fat Dots are made of, does not mar or mark surfaces.

Big Baby Bootie: 3/4" diameter by .250" tall (20mm x 6.35mm).
Put 4 Baby Booties each on Shiit Bifrost MB and Shiit Jotunheim driving Sennheiser HD800S. Wow! I was really impressed, since it lifted the sound up one more step. Looks like good value for money, given that such a small investment can actually bring a noticeable improvement.
1rst go with Herbie's stuff
Poked 4 Baby Booties under my Schiit Saga pre amplifier, got everything all warmed up, hit play for some King Crimson, and straightaway started arguing with myself: "Those little rubber thingus's can't have made that much difference, it must be in my head.' "No, it is better, man. You know it's true." "Hold up, maybe some kinda psycho-acoustic trick? I want them to be good so bad that I think they are?" "So shut up and listen, already." Then the music took over, for a while. Wow Very glad I tried these. Now to see what Herbie can do about isolating my speakers.
I've wanted to try Herbie's footers for some time. I finally ran out of the sorbathane sample pieces I had from my last "day job", so this was my opportunity to jump in. I use the Baby Booties under an Oppo 980 DVD/CD/SACD layer. The Herbie's product is everything they say they it is. The machine is now audibly quieter, yet well supported, and I am very satisfied.
Iso Cups and Baby Booties
Both are excellent products and a real bargain for the gains in performance. Particularly recommended are the Iso-Cups. I've found previous 'high end' isolation devices (specifically the aluminium/steel) to be harsh and edgy, but the Iso-Cups (at 1/10th of the price) retained the tone, texture and rhythm of my system but brought a major increase in clarity, details and bass performance. Excellent products, thank you!
Baby Booties are awesome!!!
They were just what I was looking for under a light weight component. They work as advertised and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a worthwhile audio tweak in your system...
