Blue Horizon’s Ultimate Spike Shoes are designed to sit beneath the spikes that support floorstanding speakers and speaker stands. They serve a dual purpose: firstly, they protect flooring and secondly, they enhance sound quality by suppressing resonance that leads to sonically damaging microphony in audio components.
It is the second of these functions that sets them apart form other spike shoes on the market. Uniquely, the aluminium outer casing of each spike shoe is filled by a combination specially chosen materials. The first of these is an extremely dense material placed directly beneath the indentation in which the spike sits, allowing spike loading of up to 100kg.
This is surrounded by a proprietary mixture of materials at opposite ends of the elasticity spectrum. The differing resonant frequencies of these materials ensure that resonance is damped equally across the audio band, rather than simply delivering a tonal shift. The combination of improved coupling and effective resonance control delivers clearly audible benefits, opening up the sound and improving definition from bass through to treble.

Firstly they are easy to fit under speaker stand spikes unlike others I have tried. The benefits in sonic improvement are noticeable, the timbre of a clarinet for example sounds more natural. I have briefly tried them under other vibration prone equipment with similar benefits. IMO worth the cost.

these are used to isolate my VPI cone feet from the shelf below. a supurb job immediately clearing up the sound and I think eliminating the vibrations from a poor placement problem immediately above an REL sub. additionally the bottom construction cork and rubber mix keep the table from moving. very satisfied...
