Of course you're right again, hehe
The only thing that differs between the matte and chrome versions is supposed to be the finnish on the cups, nothing else.
There shouldn't be any more sonic differences between a chrome and matte than between a matte and a matte or a chorme and a chrome.
I've never noticed any scratches in my chrome, but they do require a good wipe with the good old sunglass-wiper from time to time.
Looking forward to your review mate.
