Ah coconuts. That guy started that site as a satire site- you couldn't actually buy the stuff.
But as the orders rolled in, and people actually were trying to buy the jokerocks he was 'selling', he started shipping them.
And as the money rolled in he probably quit his job and went full time selling joke items to idiots.
Look at the internet archive, they have some old versions of the site. And if you look at that you can see "Oh that's clearly satire".

Too old for most of /g/'s newfags.

Also, Pic Related gives Audiophiles fits. It's hilarious. Sony XB1000's. Maximum power handling of 3 Watts, with -70- mm drivers. Oh, and 160dbs of output capability.

Thats enough decibels to actually burst your eardrums.

And knowing someone with a pair, and an amp to power them, I can confirm, I literally cannot put them to max volume while wearing them. It actually becomes genuinely painful to listen to. At something like 60% possible input.

Yeah. The bricks on the floor are apparently because you're supposed to have cables suspended. I literally cannot understand how the movement or vibration of a cable would have any affect on how electrons travel through it.

Many audiophiles also try to suspend their DACs etc, or suspend them on the smallest points possible.

I am not exactly how audophiles expect their stuff to work with, but ugh, we could try the isolation angle, that diamond dust deflects and does magic audio things to audio (equalizes it because of its pure shape)
