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.
Fantastic improvment from the Decoupling Glider.
Really didn't see any improvement until I raised my speakers (Spatial Audio open baffle M6) with some slate pavers. The density of the stone really made the gliders shine. I'm getting a very convincing instrument separation from the soundstage. Really adds depth to the whole presentation.
I like that they glide!
I moved from a place with carpet to a place with laminate floors. I can't compare the effect on the sound, because I went straight to using the carpet spikes plus these gliders: no A/B testing. But the glide capability is really handy! Also, my speakers, with carpet spikes and gliders, are high enough off the floor that it's really easy to clean dust bunnies out from beneath them. I know a product like this is supposed to be all about the sound, but for me, it ended up being all about the convenience.
Cone/Spike Decoupling Glider Giant / Titanium
The ‘Titanium Herbie’s Cone/Spike Decoupling Gliders’ I ordered arrived within 6 days. Within 30 minutes of retrieving them from my mailbox I had them installed under my ProAc D30RS speakers. After installation for the first two and half hours both my wife and I listened to random tracks from artists we enjoy and we are quite happy with the results. Overall improvement in the sound, improved clarity, soundstage and bass. The best part was my wife has hearing loss and uses hearing aides and she was smiling and stating how much better the system was sounding. For the past few days I have listened to about 25 album and I will be keeping the Herbie Gliders. I included a photo and happy that I did buy the Giant Titanium Gliders since they are not just functional but look great with the speakers. The value for money spent for the gliders was outstanding and highly recommend the product.
The gliders glide on laminate
The gliders glide nicely on laminate floors, and now I can use the spikes on my small-ish tower speakers to lift them a bit higher off the floor without damaging the floor's finish. I do not know if there is any effect on the sound, because I haven't done A/B testing. But I like that the gliders glide!
Cone/Spike Decoupling Glider
I added these decoupling gliders to my equipment rack on a hardwood floor and the imaging improved on my Joseph Audio Pulsar speakers, a worthy upgrade!
Great for not marking floors while preserving audio quality
Used instead of Gaia footers and preferred
What the title says. Just as effective, much easier to use since they dont suction to everything and cost a fraction.
Fantastic enhancement to any system
This has not only removed the muddy overwhelming bass that I was getting from my system but also allows easy movement for experimenting to find the ideal speaker position. My Harbeth p3 speakers are now able to provide the clarity and precision they are designed for without the impact of reverberant noise from the floor of the small upstairs room that they are in.
Cone/Spike Decoupling Glider
These are by far the best products in their category I’ve found. I just set them and forget them til I need to clean/sweep my hardwood floors or reposition the speakers. Gliders slide easily and protect the floor. Excellent product. Pricy but outperforms all similar products.
Spike Decoupling Glider
I bought these to slip under the isolation table and help me to move it about on my wooden floors. Good quality cones for the spikes with the bonus of having sliders for them. On the audio impact, I've already got a decent isolation set up (Atacama evoque isolation table and vibrapods / cones) but there was still a small gain noted due to the added isolation. Very happy with them.
I bought some of the slider isolation pucks for under my solidsteel brand speaker stands. Love them. They make an immediately obvious improvement in bass. They also make positioning the speakers much easier. I used them on both carpet and hard wood floors. They’re perfect. I ordered another set for under my equipment rack as well which makes sliding the rack out so much easier to make changes at the back of the equipment. Highly recommend. More people should be talking about this product.
