Interesting, HE400's bass disappeared with its sides covered. More bass, eh? Anyway, I'll wait for ortho ninjas to pimp it with felt screens and what-not but I want better connectors than bs MMCX anyway Yet another fubar Onkyo MMCX connector: http://www.ebay.com/itm/262873102321
Onkyo also went MMCX on their ES-FC300 / CTI300 models and ebay is constantly swamped with broken connectors, basically the center pin breaks and that's all folks......terrible choice not to go 2.5mm minijack
Anyway, the big miracle didn't quite occur as it would appear.
