Do coat hangers sound as good as Monster cables? – Boing Boing

The cables made by Monster Cable (the company that enjoys suing other companies that have the word “monster” in their name) sound no better than coat hangers, according to a man who ran a blindfold test to compare the quality of audio running through each.

Ha! I remember when these guys made some HDTV cables for the Xbox 360 which they proceeded to charge five times the cost of other perfectly-acceptable generic cables for (around £80 I seem to remember). When they came in, I noticed that they had 1) proprietary optical connections, which made them fairly useless and 2) no HDTV-SDTV switch meaning they were actually much worse than the official or generic HDTV cables.

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.
