C&C BH Portable Headphone Amp (80 Hours from a Single Charge!) [Buyer Review] - Page 92

post #1366 of 3286

fish is byproduct and waste :-)

 

seriously fish is kinda designed for IEM cable binding to reduce microphonic effects... if my English is enough to explain its functionality.

 

switches can be tricky. i find SF works well on both out1 and out2 however when engaged sonic changes might be not immediately apparent. it affects highs and stage presence however sometimes i find it also adds bit harshness to high timbres. i like SF and LF both On in out2 while high gain is put Off. in out1 i prefer high gain with LF on and SF off... do not ask me why, my ears just like it this way.

 

enjoy it mate :-)))

I find that the the SF switch doesn't have that great of an effect with GC on. Otherwise, the SF switch is pretty awesome no matter which output I use.

Not very good. tongue_smile.gif

Sorry, I do not class ipods as audiophile players. They're stuck somewhere in the early / mid 2000's, where mini disc players actually had better sound quality IMO. I am not a fan of Apple devices for audio playback period, I also find it frustrating that Apple have set the standard of mainstream sound quality to every day consumer so low yet people accept it, yet again a $30 Sansa Clip+ can almost rival their $300+ devices.

When you add the amp, you can achieve decent results but still the Colorfly's pull away rather quickly. The CK4 is just not comparable to Apple devices, nore any Cowon player I have tried. It's a different world of clarity, soundstage, separation, detailing levels. I can pull out my Sony Mini Disc MZ-R501 and put any Apple device in my inventory I have here to shame, to me that is not right, that is not acceptable, that a 15 year old mini disc player can put down an ipod touch, ipod Nano etc in this day and age IMO.

Sorry, but you asked, and that's the way I feel, regardless of their LOD function and rockbox add ons. I haven't tried the 4th gen touches yet and some people assure me they're different, but I will need hear such a thing first to change my opinion.

Apple in the whole is not a good company, way to often they make their products behind the rest of the world in technology and advertise it as a revolution and step in technology. As it is today they are slowing technology due trying to own the market, if it were up to me they should be blown of the world.

Had a problem with my wife's IPhone and she had to send it to repair inside the 2 year warranty. They did not accept to repair it since we had not taken care of the packing paper outside the package it was shipped in. We had the receipt from inside the box and the online receipt. But no they did not accept, this was loophole Apple uses to earn extra money as they know ppl while throw it away and they can not use the warranty then.

Anyway enough of a rant of apple I could go on and on. This is an thread about over loving C&c BH, all hail the supreme mini amp.

i listen to very low volume normally, what about channel balance at low output on this amp?

post #1371 of 3286
Damn lol u guys are right tho cause I got a sansa clip and its a beast, I love the user interface on apple products. I've discovered that the bh and the 5.5 match up much better than the itouch cause the 5.5 is warmer and the bh is cold. I will have to see what the arrow 4g does to the itouch when it gets here

sofa, no channel balance as far as i know (if you mean that) but i hadn't any problem which would make me want balance knob. my BH sample is fairly accurate with channels even at low volumes.

I agree, there is very little imbalance at lower volumes, I was going to mention so in the review. Just a fraction when you first turn the dial which disappears quickly. C&C did a good job there.

Only gripe I have is the jacks not being tight, might open it and change them.

Is there a recommended specific 3.5 to 3.5 upgrade that people are doing or is the interconnect that comes with the BH the best option for under ~20? I don't have the option of an LOD

I asked the same, there were a few links in response. You can find them here in the thread maybe 10 pages back. Links were to cables on ebay, one of which was $20: Here . Some people went with copper, others SPC. I decided to get one custom from btg-audio.com for about $33. I would have went with the 20$ one on ebay but I saw it in a few setups and it was massive. I wanted something a little lower profile.

post #1378 of 3286

Awesome.. Sorry I had looked through a few pages and hadn't seen anything.. I appreciate the response =)

I'm so conflicted.. The xba's sound noticeably better with the BH in use rather than just out of my source.. But I really dislike carrying around a portable amp.. This is the same dilemma I had with the E11 except the sound quality between the two isn't really comparable.. The BH is much better.. So I'm going in between selling it off and keeping it and dealing with the extra piece in my setup.. Man does this thing sound good lol

Think I'll be selling my E11 too.

 

BH is just better on all accounts!
