I'm not so sure about better smoke/flavor, but on my KM made a world of difference in terms of sound. My hookah is now almost very stealthy, good for watching movies, etc.

It defiantly helps with lowering noise greatly for me. I can also a notice a difference looking at how much the smoke separates in the water meaning it gets filtered more but I can't notice a difference in taste. As for them claiming it enhances the flavor and makes thicker clouds I don't notice this at all and believe it to be over hype by others.

I agree, all it does is reduce the noise which is good when you dont want to disturb others in the next room.

Ive also noticed that the water in the vase looks as if its fizzing which is nothing but thought I'd just let you know.

It allows you to apply more heat because it can smooth out the smoke more. I had a time where I started smoking with it, and then took it off halfway through, the smoke at the time was so full and thick, that without the diffuser, I couldn't take a normal pull. With it, it was perfectly fine and normal.

I had the small one on my mya diva.
It produces smaller bubbles to reduce the noise like said above. I didn't notice anything with the smoke or taste though.

It made the pull harder too.

I wonder how they came to claim that smaller bubbles = bigger clouds...

Well i've noticed that all you guys are talking about is the smoke and the sound...
But i thought the main reason for a diffusor is the health side of it...
The diffusor divides the smoke in much smaller bubbles so its gets filtered more...
srry for my crappy english (normally I speak dutch )

I Think it cant make youre smoking experience worse... so I'm going to buy one.

haha don't worry your english is fine.

Yeah I'm not really worried about the health aspects, because if your afraid of dying you shouldn't smoke, pretty simple.

To be honest, the objective in a water pipe is to cool the smoke - this is done via surface area of smoke to water. logically if you place something to aid in breaking up the bubbles there is more surface area and thus a more filtered and possibly cooler smoke. Now I have no experience with the Heba but I do know that diffused is always better than not-diffused - it simply does its job better.

personally I would suggest trying a few different methods of diffusion - a simple method would be to cut 3 slits on both sides of the downstem just before the tip (slightly higher water line if you are modding an existing downstem) with a small increment from each other to allow the smoke to exit the downstem in smaller bubbles through the 3 slits.

the easiest method is to get diffusion balls or marbles that force the smoke around all of the marbles forcing the bubbles to separate as they flow up to the water line.

I don't think it does anything for our health. When it comes down to it, you're still smoking the hookah. The diffuser doesn't "filter" anything.

I wouldn't say that the heba is a waste of money at all. If you truly want the most out of your hookah experience that slight difference in taste can make or break a smoke session. There is also the added "health" benefit if you care for that.
And the quiet sound is really awesome for watching movies or even talking, as the larger vases can be quite loud. It is definitely worth ten bucks.

IF you are like me and like watching stuff while smoking, but the bubbles are too loud like on the KM then get one, but if you prefer the sound theys no need.

It really wont improve cloud size, have health implications etc
