Same here on my Connor. Plus I can put a cover on the port if I want. I didn't get it because of the port, other features impressed me more, but I like the port fine.have them on one of my guitars (2008 Traphagen) and can think of no cons. Guitar projects like a beast outward, so I don't think it has any impact on projection into a hall. But, gives me a little bit more feedback than if they weren't there.

Besides, the ones I tried at least were not powerful or projecting or whatever (three different builders - two of them provided for a plug and there was no real difference for the audience).
To me it was much more disturbing than any "uncommuncating" guitar I had tried so far (for instance, the whole Bernabé range sounds nice from the audience - rather projective when compared to many luthier guitars ina famous Barcelona shop -, but the player can't really tell what the audience hears - more or less basses, more vibrato and so on...). I don't want a music tool I cannot control.
This is just my opinion and you may like soundports a lot, of course.
