The Musicmask works
OK, let's get the elephant out of the corner and slap-bang into the middle of the room right now: the Musicmask works.
You put it on, using the adjustable Velcro strap provided, fumble around for the remote control to start your favourite music, and when the sound pours forth from the speakers, you definitely hear details you hadn't before.
Heard things I've never noticed before
Listening with the Musicmask (or in total darkness) you focus on the music and hear more details in it. I listened to the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" with the Musicmask and heard things I've never noticed before. I loved the way Paul McCartney's bass lines locked in with Ringo Starr's drum patterns on "Fixing A Hole," and the swirling, psychedelic tape loops on "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!" were more intricate than I'd imagined. I'm more aware of subtle shifts in the stereo image, soundstage depth, and very quiet background vocals while listening with the Musicmask.
The stereo image seems to be much wider and deeper
The stereo image seems to be much wider and deeper, as if you are present in the recording room. The emotional transfer is better. It's like a kind of meditative condition: your ears focused on the smallest details. A brilliant discovery: simple, cheap, effective. Basically everything an audiophile tweak should be. Absolutely a must. (translated to English)
