I picked up one in the used bin at the local tennis shop and I heard the "sand" immediately..and I'm half deaf from playing guitar for years.
I have a prince air freak that makes the same sound, but it's because of excessive drill flash, not any "technology". It's called "poor quality control" in that case.
By the way, who is that in your avatar?
