I see, thank you for the informative post. I'm new to using portable devices to play hi res audio and didn't realize that the audio is converted to PCM. The most I've ever used on my iPhone is Spotify and Tidal. I'll play around with some other players other than Vox this week and see what results I get.
Isn't Tidal HiFi supposed to stream at a higher sample rate than Spotify premium? I'm using Vox on my iPhone, playing files hat I can confirm are 24/96kHz and DSD but I've never seen the power light change to any color other than bright red. Maybe I'll try another hi res audio player.
Gave that a shot, but still only showing red no matter what sample rate is playing. I may try and contact Chord directly.
Is my Mojo defective? I just picked one up and when it's connected to my iPhone via the included micro USB cable and CCK adapter from Apple, the power light stays red no matter what sample rate is playing. I thought it was supposed to change color based on what files you're listening to? I've tried Spotify, Tidal HiFi, FLAC and DSD on my iPhone 6+ and the ball light is always displaying red (44kHz) I've tried searching for similar issues and haven't found anything. Am I...
I'm looking for a used Hifiman Edition X (HEX) in good condition to buy or trade for my HD 800 + some cash.   PM me for details/pics. Must have feedback.
But but the mahogany is so pretty...why would you??
I have all 3 (demoing the HEX currently) and I agree with all of this. The HEX simply outclasses the TH-X00 in almost everything (as it should considering price) and it can be driven well with a cheap portable amp to boot. But I can't use the HEX at work like I can the TH-X00. Both are very "fun" and engaging headphones with an enveloping quality to them. I would actually pick the HEX over HD 800 as well, if not for the price and iffy build quality. IMO the HEX is...
Thanks for your input. From what I'm gathering, the HD 800S is more musical than the classic HD 800 but the HEX is more musical than both. I'm really enjoying my time with the HEX demo pair I have right now and I may even prefer it to the HD 800. I definitely prefer the HEX liveliness to the laid back nature of the HE-1000. If only it were built as solid as the HD 800. I've always been hesitant on Hifiman's build/QC issues. Anyway, don't want to stray too OT.
Just curious if anyone has yet done any direct comparisons between the HD 800S and the Hifiman HEX? An hour of searching has turned up little to nothing.
