you can check out what is Relay in wiki I believe. when the relay is on or off, you can hear some "da da" sound because the switcher is on or off.
you can alway connect your expensive headphones in E12 but don't need to worry about the pop noise will damage it.
A delay circuit... A relay that causes a delay between amp & load...
It's six or half dozen.
Anyway, along with Craigster's suggestion about utilizing Head-Fi feedback, you would probably get a better idea about the "majority" vote about something like a bass-boost setting by listing the pros/cons of both choices (like you did with the power output and charging behavior), and then setting up an actual poll.
You'll probably have more people participate in voting, and it'll be easier for you to count votes. For example, by my count, since your posted question on page 63 a week ago, 7 different people have asked for more bass boost, 12 different people said they like it as-is, two people only mentioned they would like more adjustability options (like the E6's system). Nobody who has owned/heard the Mont Blanc has been unhappy with the bass. Now, the number of people who have commented in the week since you posted the question may not be a large enough sample size to draw conclusions, but the point I'm trying to make is you're making a change based on a vocal minority.
If you do want to ask consumers about future changes, using a polling system will help you keep your head above bias... A statistician could help you even more (which I am not).
As far as your decision about changing the bass boost... it doesn't actually affect me, because I already have a Mont Blanc the way I like it. I'll just have to note the change in my review so other people will know I have a limited production design.Edited by Evshrug - 2/10/13 at 12:40pm
