    MS is the Mini platform perfected (at least for now…) Nice tone, hits deep, great clarity.

    MC is a normal sounding closed back. It has a bit more warmth and is super cohesive. What pads are you shipping it with?

    If there is any chance these would come up to Canada (Ontario), I would be interested in hearing both and happy to write up impressions.

    I have the loaner and will be sending to the next person this week.

    Edit: the box with the semi-open has a cable included. The closed has no cable but a couple additional pairs of pads. I confirmed with the ETA folks that this is correct for the loaners.

    Is it too late to get in on this loaner? I'm in the Boston, MA area.

    I should mention I have these now, but my job has prevented me from listening to them (that and I have a weekend trip coming up). I'll ask for a bit more time; however if I can't get to them by next Wednesday I'll ship them off

    don't worry about the delay, I'm sure the community is interested in what you think of the headphones :)

    An update on the situation; I have the headphones boxed up and am just waiting for a reply from @ushanka to get these shipped off. I'll give him a little time to get back to me before I ping the next person after him.

    There have been several threads, and to be honest I wish they could all be collapsed into one. However, here are the most recently active threads for Mini S and Mini C .
