Loudspeaker spikes are more effective when used in conjunction with Herbie's dBNeutralizer decoupling, especially with wood or suspended floors, whether carpeted or bare. Likewise, if your spikes couple firmly to your cabinet and are themselves solid and relatively free of coloration, they will complement Herbie's Decoupling Gliders very well by easing some of the workload and making the Gliders even more efficient. (Herbie's Cone/Spike Decoupling Gliders are used under your present spikes or cones.)

Features fiberglass-reinforced dBNeutralizer(tm) decoupling base and extra-thick brass, stainless steel or titanium disk. Fitted into Magic Sliders, they can be used on virtually any kind of floor, bare or carpeted, with easy-sliding mobility. Extra-deep conical indentation prevents spike from slipping out when lateral pressure is applied. Suitable for audio racks, stands and loudspeakers of virtually any weight.

Regular: 1-3/8" diameter by 1/2" tall. With speaker load, height from bottom of Glider to bottom of conical indentation is about 5/16" (8mm).

Giant: 2-3/8" wide by .67" tall (conical indentation is .144" deep).

Brass: superb hi-end results with most audio systems (our default recommendation).

Stainless steel: superb hi-end results with most audio systems.

Titanium: best-looking and best-sounding results possible.

Perfect for Sonus Faber

The thin wafer pad that was supplied with my Sonetto Vs does little more than protect the floor from the steel spiked feet of the speaker. Any lateral movement to adjust position and the spikes pop off the pad. Herbie's decoupling glider pads make a solid connection, hold the spikes in place, and allow for adjustment to speaker positioning with confidence. Wood floor remain safe. And Herbie's gliders look good too.

Cone spike decoupling glider

It's now very easy to move my 75 KG speakers on the timber floor. The stereo image is more focused and there is better separation between instruments and voices. Highly recommended.

Smooth Glider

I purchased two sets of 4 to use under my dual hifi racks and I love this product! Originally purchased for decoupling properties but absolutely love the glider feature. They look great and allow my racks to easily glide on the carpet making re-wiring and swapping components a breeze. Highly recommend.

Righteous Gliders

I bought these anticipating the need to use them on speakers weighing 132 lbs apiece,. They came and looked as simple as they looked on the web site. I used them on speakers weighing 58 lbs each, and they helped me move the speakers over carpet onto a ceramic tile floor. They never dug in, never got stuck, never slipped off the spike, so what can you say? The fulfilled their primary mission - aiding in moving heavy items. Now, I cannot speak to vibration control,. I would strongly suspect that these gliders are nowhere near as effective as dedicated decoupling products with regards to vibration control. That said, these dedicated vibration control products literally cost 6-8 times what I paid for the gliders. I'm perfectly happy with the gliders that allow me to move heavy speakers around and might also help with decoupling. If I really need heavy duty decoupling I can consider a dedicated product once my speaker placement is finalized and my budget has an $800 surplus.

Cone/Spike Decoupling Glider (Brass)

Like all of Herbie's products, they always work as intended and are fairly priced when compared to the competition. In the case of the Gliders, I like the idea that they are advertised to work with my current BDR Cones.

The best of the best

Outstanding. Does exactly what it should do by decoupling the speakers in addition to making it very easy to move around the speakers to a designated area. Perfect. B

Easy Gliding

The Herbie Gliders sit under my 225 pound Ulfberhts and 4-10s. Both of which are now easily repositioned or moved for fine tuning or even cleaning. The little things make life easier ... and no doubt these little gliders make easy work of moving massive speakers.

Quality Product

Quality product. These allow me to slide my fifty pound speakers around on the carpeting. It's great for fine tuning speaker location without breaking your back.

Great value

With these gliders I got an excellent “return on investment “. The improvements in sound reproduction were well worth it. Specifically soundstage imaging and definition improved but for me the most welcome improvement was a decrease in mid-bass “bloat” that I was having trouble achieving. Also, regarding service, I inadvertently ordered twice the number of gliders I needed. HAL quickly changed my order and adjusted the cc charge. Highly recommended.

Fabulous tweak!

I recently added Thiel 3.7’s to my audio system. These were a major upgrade from the Thiel 3.5’s that I had been listening to for many years. When I got the speakers into my home, I found that some recordings that I had previously loved sounded muddy using what should have been far more detailed and transparent speakers. Other recordings just sounded lifeless when they previously sounded dynamic. As I researched the problem, I discovered Herbie’s and decided to try their Cone/spike decoupling gliders. I had the Thiels on custom stands with spikes that sat on small metal discs to protect the hardwood floors. Replacing those metal discs with the decouplers solved the problem instantly. All the life was restored in those recordings and the 3.7’s proved to be everything that I bought them for. Not only was the sound more focused but the sound stage was immediately more precise. I could not be happier with this purchase and would recommend them whole heartedly.

Increase in stability and improvement in sound

I have a pair of vintage floor-standing speakers (Alon IV) which came with spikes. Given their weight (115 lbs.) the spikes went through the carpet to the wood floor. They are also difficult to move around. So, I investigated what was available at a moderate price, and I found Herbie’s Audio Lab. The Cone/Spike Decoupling Glider looked like it would solve my problems. Well, they did that and more. The speakers can now be moved easily, but the improved sound of my system is wonderful. It is much smoother and detailed. So, I am pleased to have two benefits from my purchase.

I really haven’t had an opportunity to listen for any sonic improvements but I can say that my speakers don’t slide across my carpet like I had hoped.
