Not until it gets reviewed. How big is your advertising budget?

It really should smell nice so the women stay around. The people buying this will be sitting in a dimly lit room anyway so looking funny doesn't matter.
A nice touch would be to package the gel in its a battery operated container that warms the gel. This has the side benefit of enhancing the aromatic properties along with feeling nice.
For those people that do not have girl friends you could offer the jazzy "Glow in the Dark" vesion. The added light can help you find your remote on the floor after you drop it.
The break-in period has me worried, though.... I too will be interested in the battery powered warmer as Ctyler suggested. And you thought IC break-in periods were too long, lol. I better not have to wear this stuff on my ears for >50hrs before it starts working its magic!
Is this a "Stereophile Recommended Component?"
Expect to retire soon! Make a copper, silver, and gold color
even if there is no difference and price accordingly. As mentioned above, make sure it's expensive and no dealer discounting. Maybe you can combine it with Campbell's ear trimmer as a "system".
I think cfb is an attorney, maybe he can help you go public, were all rich and we can stop buying used stuff from this site. Count me in.
If it hasn't been reviewed by somebody with initials as opposed to a real name or end up on a recommended list, I want nothing to do with it. These folks are pros, what do we know, dammit we trust our ears! C'mon guys and girls, let's stop kidding ourselves the answer is in Seacliff or Arizona. Shall we flip a treated coin?
I offer after market mods for the Green Gel Snake Oil. Mod. 1A involves a propriety blend of carbon fiber and Kevlar. Mod. 2A is the ultimate...pressure injection of tritium and tungsten carbide dust, and is then cryo-treated! In addition, the Mod. 2A comes with a certificate for a free forehead tatoo..."POWERED BY GREEN GEL MOD 2A!" Shows the world that you have THE BEST!!
I can't remember the exact source but a reviewer claimed the updated MK II prototype green gel provided: 1) an improved soundstage 2) Lifted a vail of film on the sound 3) Improved the bass response 4) Brought out sounds he hadn't heard before on favorite recordings, and 5) best of all, his spouse approves. Someone email Sight and Sound to nominate it for the first Recommended Product for 2002!
FORGET THIS PRODUCT! My company has something better. In keeping with names that young people identify with (and can spell) Znaque Oyul Inc. introduces Eeer Lenziz. This product consists of three magic soda straws that hang in front of each ear from an unobtainium head frame with spikes. Samples have been sent all revievers, with a notes enclosed stating that they needn't return the samples, thus ensuring "Class A" reviews.
the original was blacklisted. It seems it became the most likely candidate in the mysterious death of family pets. Turns out the main ingredient was ethylene glycol laced with corn starch for thickener. The less known property of resistance to upper thermal extremes was perfect for those self proclaimed experts now matter how hot they got. Even the loss of Rover and Scooby-Doo was originally tollerated, aparently Fido had previously decided that his masters $10,000.00 power cord resembled rawhide string.
Maybe I am a cross-reference freak (or just plain freak, hell I don't know), but would the ear hair clipping suggested by another thread allied to this fine product produce significant synergy and turn non-existant improvements into "substantial sonic dividends" and borderline differences into "HUGE improvements"? Could I hear below 20hz and way above 20khz even if I have reached the half century mark, with half that time immersing my ears in the good, the bad and the ugly sound-wise at high db levels? I do so much want to be a golden eared audiophile, where can I write for this fine fine product and do you have an "ES" or "signature" version with better chemicals used throughout? I surely would be ready to pay at least ten times for that better version. I await your speedy reply and look to you with failing ears...
Sorry Hififarm....but I'm gonna spill your secret!
Ok guys...The Goo doesn't do anything to the exterior of your ear to make you hear better. This is just smoke and mirrors to lead you down the bunny trail. The real reason
you place this on your ears is to absorb the secret ingrediant directly to the body part that needs it. Inside your ears are little hairs that sway back and forth or vibrate(?). These hairs can start to lay down after a while especialy after playing at loud volumes.
Yep...You guessed it, what a smart bunch we have here! The secret ingrediant is a Viagra dirivitive that after much testing, and many happy wives later, only afects the hairs in the ear.
By allowing the hairs to "stand up" with enthusiasm they can collect and transmit the sound much better. This is percieved as a brighter but not harsh midrange that has more sence of presence. Also the highs seem to go forever and have more air.
Sorry to spoil the mystery..LOL!
I think we should all just put foam wedges behind our ears giving us that Alfred E. Neuman look...Hey...we spend hours positioning speakers to point them at our ears...now it's time to start positioning our ears. Or maybe we could all wear one of those big plastic dog collars (you know, the ones that vets use to keep fido from chewing on himself after surgery) to gather all the sound possible. LOL
Doug, you forgot about "system synergy". While the yellow gel and brown gel do nothing individually, it is when they are mixed together that they really begin to shine. However, as with any other audio based product, you may have to play with the exact mixtures of how much of each gel to use. A proper combination of the two can really unleash the "magic" that your system has been capable of all along. However, using too much of one type can make the system too dark and depressing ( brown ) and going the other way will make it overly bright and "sunny" sounding ( yellow ). Having said all of that, you will really need to experiment to see what works best in your system and suits your personal preference.
As to the green gel, we've done extensive testing and found out that it was simply moldy cheese and broken up bits of "penicillin bread" suspended in fermented Olive oil. While it does nothing for enhancing your sonic pleasures, it doesn't taste too bad once you get past the smell.... : ) Sean
Since I have a masters and a PHD in EE from the University of Canadian Kings, I must tell you, that this is all nothing but subjectivist brabble. Obviously you have fallen prey to autosuggestion, quite common with audiophiles. According to established rules of science, any gel with previously established specific gravity and identical molecular structure, as has been repeatedly shown in carefully conducted double blind testing, will sound exactly the same, no matter what colour!

Do these improvements with the gel work better with the lights on or off? do UV rays have any effect on the gels performance? Can I use the "gel" as hair gel so the improvement soaks into my skull? these are obvious questions that need answering, and what the heck is a color blind person to do????????
Dear Flex, you are quite wrong of course. Our research at UCK (reprinted in "Unscientific American" VOl.01 is.2234 in an article coauthored by Schrumpelmeyer, Tsu Ming, McCraggen, Lipshitz, Finkelstein and O'Brian ) I proved conclusively that the gel's basic ingredient of faeces bovini do indeed help to block off the effects on your hearing of ELECTROSMOG, which is present and can be measured in every listening area. So the basic ingredients of the gel DO work as reported above. Mixing any other ingredients with it, only seem to serve the manufacturer to sell it to gullible audiophiles. There is no difference in measurements, hence no difference in its effects. Since the gel works as a repellent, there should not be a notable difference with the lights on or off, apart of the effect, that music is generally recieved better by the brain with the lights off, exception being DVDs by Lopez et al. There are studies around, which suggest, that massaging it in to your hair, will counteract the effects of VIAGRA. The number of trials reported however, seeem to lie below the level of statistical significance.
Well, I also suffer from an overdose of testosterone and I ain't got none, so I smuggled some out of the lab (Schrumpelmeyer, Tsu Ming, McCraggen, Lipshitz, Finkelstein and O'Brian didn't notice) and applied a good dose of faeces bovensi to my plate. To my utter surprise it went into a postive synergy with Sildenafil (VIAGRA), which lasted for three hours. I was so shocked by the discovery, that I was unable to put it to practical use, nor was I able to listen to music. Possibly it pays to shave your head. What is unclear however, if Electrosmog had a catalytic effect to start the described reaction. Also we don't know, if it only works with material gathered in the midwest of the US. I've persuaded Schrumpelmeyer, who has friends in Switzerland, to get us some from the Alps. Thankyou for your interest. Dr. T.Troll
I am so incredibly fired up about having my cilia excitated into vertical, esctatic reverie! Yes, I agree, we should wait for the MkII version, although, perhaps, I can call the garage-geek manufacturer (finally getting attention after not being picked for dodge ball in the six grade) and get him to introduce a Signature version for a premium. That way, I will know that Joe-audio-buddy down the road will not be able to claim that his is better, and, then, I can claim, no matter what, to hear better. And then, I can go down to the Neighbohood audio store and hang out with them, telling myself that my buying even more expensive crap from them has nothing to do with my need to hang out with "audio celebrities." And then, I can hear some guru - we'll call him Bs - tell me that the latest goo I must have, and that it has nothing to do with full color ads, or gear sold out the reviewer's back door post review (to you guys), or the guru's need to be a guru and narcissistically sit on the apex heap of an over-inflated microcosm.
Yea, I think I'll wait until then...
