Sorry to hear that - this is the first case of clear nuts breaking reported on this thread.  Has anyone else had issues?
 
JH's stance is there is no problem w/ the clear cables, that's why everyone was getting clear cables until they had aluminum nuts for the black cables.
 
So if you order a black cable today, you will get one w/ an aluminum nut.  Clear cable, you will still get a plastic nut.

 
I have had the clear cable for 2 months now and the nuts are still perfectly intact.

Hello all, I've had mine with clear cable for 6 weeks I've only taken one nut off one time, they are fine. Also my cable is not turning green yet. Other then a small bubble (clear acrylic) in my left ear piece, that I didn't even see until reviewing pics on my laptop that I took with my DSLR and macro lens under good light, everything else is perfect. Fit was pretty snug at first now they fit great. They sound fantastic. I ordered on 1/13 got them on 3/5. For all you CF guys that are still waiting, I would be flipping out I sure feel for you, but they sure do sound good.

Spent an hour today with the universal roxannes and my new X5.
Sound was just sensational and the bass sublime. I really really liked the sound signature. Also they fitted very snugly and i got a perfect seal so would happily settle for the uni's rather than go through the current custom grief.
 
listening to my fave techno/bigbeat track (Underworld's - Pearls Girl) was just out of this world. An experience i wont forget in a while

if they were available to buy immediately i would have bought a pair there and then. 
 
does anyone have any definitive eta's on the universals ?

I dont have an ETA but I ordered mine through Moon Audio and Drew really made sure that JH delivered them on time and replied my emails constantly concerning their statuses.

I find it interesting that he thinks flat frequency response is 'boring,' which I am perplexed over this statement. Why do most people associate neutral with being dull and not vibrant. The way I see it, with a neutral response you get out what you put in. If the recording is bassy or trebley, then this will be replicated through the speakers. I do not understand why it is necessary to alter a frequency response in order to 'liven' up the sound. If the recording is dull, then it should sound dull and vice versa. Anyone care to shed some light on this?

There is no one recording standard. Plus, I think you have to compensate for your speakers (earphones, headphones, etc.) being different than the many types of monitors used in many different studios.
