Monster Cables vs. Coat Hangers

If you’re a regular reader of this blog then you know that I’m not a huge fan of over-priced Monster cable. So how over-priced are Monster cables?

A member of the Audioholics Home Theater Forum conducted an interesting blindfolded listening test. A CD was listened to using Monster Cable and again with coat hanger wire. The joke is that none of the audiophiles participating in this test could tell the difference in the sound quality between the two cables used.

According to Google, the monster cables vs coat hangers test isn’t a new one but I find it amusing. Unfortunately Monster Cable Products, Inc. has a great marketing department and a lot of people believe the hype they sell.
