Or even the name ? Tried them years ago and they been in my closet for maybe 20 years. I know they are to wrap around power cords.
you'll probably end up with something similar to the recent posting in AA General Forum!

I sprayed beer all over the screen of my iPad.
That was funny!
I believe they were called "high wire wraps". Never used them but were supposed to be centered on length of power cable to absorb noise.
I remember those but not a lot more except that I think the intention may have been to help contain stray electro magnetic fields generated from within the power cords. If you hung them vertically in the top three feet of your room you could use them to scatter high frequencies.
Hmmm, "scatter high frequencies"
Would that improve the soundstage? :)
provide some diffraction. easy enough to experiment with. Dollar store sells some 5 or 6 foot 3/8" (I think might be 1/4") dia. steel spirals intended for use in the garden for plants that like to run up on. Only $3.00 Canadian each about a 4 inch spiral would do the same thing and look interesting but you are not going to get much bandwidth still worth playing with for peanuts.
They're coils so they may roll off high frequency noise. Possibly some helpful damping of physical vibration.

Yeah, I think to block noise traveling on the cable, if my memory is correct.
Wouldn't they need to be grounded, preferably to the wall socket?
