I would honestly say the most dramatic effect is how much it cuts the bubbling noise. Makes it better for watching movies and stuff. The smaller version worked real well on my mini mya acrylic, but the big one (it comes with two sizes) didn't really do much good on my mya obelisk.

thanks for the answer, had you noticed any difference in "cloud size" or how thick the smoke was?

That's a good question. I think it really depended on heat management and bowl setup to be honest. I though the heba would be a magical addition to my experience, so maybe I had unrealistic expectations of ripping huge clouds, but I can say that it did. I did notice however that the smoke pull was less harsh at times.

haha i know where your coming from, having seen 1 too many youtube videos with insane clouds myself. currently im getting great flavor and good clouds, but it may be because of my hookah. (22" Egyptian" with a phunnel bowl and a nammor hose)

im considering buying a mya, as that could help me to get bigger clouds.

I Would say: diffuser make smoking more quiet. I didn't notice any change in smoke. I think is not worth 10$. I was selling them for 3pounds per set, but need to post 100+ to come back to trade section. LOL

Actually i am using it regularly. I have been experimenting with this and found out, that maybe the smoke is a bit smoother, but on the other hand i have feeling, that i get less smoke. But anyway, it will cool your smoke a bit more.

No big difference. It's not worth 10$, i bought it for 3$.

sharahsmoke has them for like $4 so they are cheaper then the heba diffusors on HS.

It reduces the noise like it says, but thats all it does, does not increase flavour or smoke density at all, make the draw a tad harder as well

I heard the best thing they do is help silence the hookah. I wouldn't think that it is worth the ten dollars.

What they definitely are best at is significantly quieting the noise of the hookah. As far as smoother smoke, bigger clouds, etc. etc. I can't say one way or the other. IMO it does make the smoke slightly less harsh. However it also restricts the pull a little bit so you have to work harder for your smoke. Not much just a little but it is noticeable. Worth $10? Maybe. I like mine but can only use the small one as the large size is too big for my SSC Sub-zero. SSC versions are sold singly for about 1/2 the price. Or as was mentioned before the Home made hookah stuff section of the forums has tons of ways to make your own.

Great for reducing noise, as for anything else didn't really notice. Wouldn't spend $10 though. SS has the diffusers for less and we started carrying the SS branded diffusers as well for half the price.

I use one.

Made a huge difference in flavor and cloud density when I used it on my cheap chinese pipe. HUGE DIFFERENCE. Much stronger flavor, cooler smoke.

KM is another story. There is a slight difference in flavor... Very slight. If you pull the stem and pop it on mid-session you will notice a slight change in the flavor. Mostly it seems to bring out some of the subtleties of the flavor. No difference in cooling or clouds from what I can tell.

I do find it very handy in quieting the hookah when watching movies, which I do all the time. Very handy indeed.

Basically, it turns a crappy hookah into a usable one.
