And I'm not taking sides against you, I'd just like some explanation of the why and how these little barrels could make a mic cable quieter.
No, it's real science.

The principle behind how it works is actually similar to the principal behind both faraday cages, as well as how transformers can help reject noise.

I would look for white papers from Deane Jensen or Bill Whitlock...they've both addressed this over the years much better than I could!
