To some, this item is a blessing. To others, it’s an annoying requirement.
It is an accessory for another device. To be used effectively, the owner would need to possess a certain skill. It’s not designed to make something “better,” but rather “more acceptable” under certain conditions. And it would only rarely be used professionally, except when one was practicing the aforementioned skill.
