Sorbothane Vibration Isolation Circular Pad / Discs

Product Review (submitted on December 11, 2017):
After reading a lot of reviews for other sizes of this brand's products I decided to purchase these feet to place under my various audio/visual components as well as a Tripp Lite UPS unit.

The feet themselves are pliable and have a stickiness to them so you can attach them to the bottom of whatever item you are using them on and they stay put. Both sides are sticky, however, so after you put the feet on, you have to place the unit exactly where you want it on your rack - you can't slide it into place.

I noticed a hum or buzz from the Tripp Lite which was fairly audible anywhere near the unit. After using these feet, the buzz/hum level was decreased considerably to where you would have to put your ear right next to it to hear anything. As far as it dampening vibrations for my other components, I really can't say since I don't have anything to measure vibrations and nothing else really seemed to be suffering from excessive movement or vibration. I just put these feet in place under things such as the CD player, Blu Ray player, preamp, etc., to further isolate them from any rack vibrations. The product seems to be of good quality - it holds its shape and the feel of it gives the impression that it does indeed work very well at absorbing vibrations.

Only one thing - once in place, especially if used on glass, it sticks very well so it requires a bit of effort if you decide to move anything that has these pads in use.
