...I've been using these for a few months now...no substitute for a properly treated room, but a noticeable improvement over nothing at all...the large "hourglass" shaped piece that fits nicely just behind the mic (on a boom-type stand) is my favorite piece...since I do alot of "dubplate" recording (vocals recorded over a pre-mixed rhythm track) I find this particular item very useful...eliminates much of the room "bounce-back" by deadening the space directly behind the mic...of course, Harvey's idea above will provide more deadening effect...
