b/c it's dumb & silly, and there is no reason for a company to release proprietary cables when there is already an established universal standard except to make more profit by forcing consumers to buy their cables. it is an idiotic greedy move (imo of course) and I would rather spend my money elsewhere because of it.
it's like if some company released speakers that do not take RCA cables but use some random other proprietary connection system. doesn't make any sense.
edit: sry i just read about the mmx thing. well, i guess that makes it slightly better, but i still don't understand why you would use a more obscure connection format. for IEMs, I can understand b/c of size restraints, but for full-sized headphones, doesn't seem to make sense to me.
