Default Heba Diffuser - worth it?

So, I've been looking into adding a heba diffuser to my hookah purchase, and was wondering if I could hear people's take on whether they are worth it or not!

Thanks

That's about all I get out of it too.
If you can't craft one yourself, or want one that looks a bit nicer, go for it.

i agree with sam, they do and they keep splashing low, so u wont get water in ur hose. even if u take a rlly big hit. i compared non diffuser and with diffuser, the diffuser really makes a difference. but its better if u make ur own, cost 90% less most of the time and u only spend like 20 minutes making one..!

So, they don't increase the smoke, filtration, or draw at all?

I bought a diffuser for €2,50. It came with a small one and a big one. I use the big one on my KM and the small one on my MYA QT. They both work great!!
My QT almost makes NO sound when I am taking a hit from it, and the noise from the KM is remarkable lowered too. I don't know if it makes the smoke less harsh or that it makes the smoke give more taste, but a quiet hookah is really nice.
I'd say it's worth it, and a while ago someone around the forums said: "once you bought one, you can't go without it anymore." I think that's true

I never smoke without mine. Lol. I use both the small and the big one on my egyptian, and it rocks. SUPER quiet and awesome. I would definitelt invest in one. Just make sure you don't buy it from H-S. You can find them wayyy cheaper at other online (supporting) vendors.

It took me a little longer to start with the diffuser for some reason but I put it after it lights and it's perfect, way quitter, tames the bubbles so they don't get in your hose on smaller hookahs and maybe just maybe helps the clouds a bit

On my small hookahs I haven't really noticed much difference. On my Mya Gyro it drastically reduced the noise. It's almost dead silent when I draw.

/As far as actual filtering, I don't know.
