C&C BH Portable Headphone Amp (80 Hours from a Single Charge!) [Buyer Review] - Page 2

post #16 of 3289
Thread Starter 
Nice find Nick, very interesting read, I saw the reviewer mention a slight pop noise when starting the amp. C&C BH is not immune to this and a similar pop occurs. I really enjoyed that review it gave me even more enthusiasm about this little amp and some background about C&C in general. Looks like these guy's know their stuff! Certainly appears that way from what I'm hearing.

Yes the tips were in the box ,I assume they come with the sale? Unless of course the seller placed them in there.

Excellent miow, can't wait to hear your impressions. Very clean, smooth, crisp. I'll have some more info over the next few days, but I already know I'm really enjoying it!

I thank you H20 for pointing me this out. I feel this is going to be my best biz of 2013.

 

Will also compare it to the $180 JDSLabs C421 AD2227.

 

If this exceeds my expectations, let's help this small chinese company making some money.

Nick, I'm sure this thing will do wonders for our $5 MT-300's. Lol & sigh!

Oh, just a question: is there any Bass Boost switch?

Yes, LF is the bass boost switch. smile.gif Here's another review of a C&C Box+ which has the same switches and are explained, I assume they work in a very similar fashion. However the Box+ is an older version, BH is recently new to my understanding. (be sure to read the whole review there's some intresting info about the company)

Thanks to nick n for finding it.

And here's some other users impressions of BH in the thread I originally found.

That should keep you going for a while. wink.gif

This is actually a very capable amp guy's, I highly recommend it. I am having an absolute ball, flavours my HM-601 and CK4+ line outs in a truly positive way.
I don't think you would be disappointed.

 

Haha yeh I think I will buy after your excellent write up, I love especially the 2 outputs, one with 75Ohm adapter built-in, in other words, should be a match made in heaven for H-100

Thanks H20. And what is SF for?

Sure. This is the best description I have found on the SF switch.

It's funny that this was the exact resistance you guys were toying around with recently also with the H-100.

 

So really, if a separate adapter costs ~$15 then really if you think about it this thing really only costs$85 then if you were going to buy an adapter anyhow..

and if I were to daisychain another E5 or something else to drive some fullsized properly that takes the saved cost down even further making this cheaper still.

yup makes perfect sense.

 it does right...               beuller?   beulller?

 

There's that and also for some no-so sensitive older orthodynamics here the output on this thing is exactly what i NEED ( not would like, but NEED ) 

Take a lesson here folks on how easy it is to justify things, then try it yourselves.

 

This has me thinking about the pricier  XO2 model there with the 1000 Mw  per channel outputs, wow. and  Headphone Adapter Impedance: 8-600Ω and some other goodies. the dilemma.

From the looks of it, I guess that if this amp was coming from another manufacturer in the USA or Europe it would cost $300+. Great discovery bud wink_face.gif

Using output 2 my H-100 sound smoother, treble rolls off slightly, low end and mid range is still intact, smoothed over is the best way to describe it, probably why you guy's enjoy the slightly velvety mid range noticeable with vocals. There's plenty of power and I cannot max this amp out at all, (using low gain) H-100 metal housing actually start rattling. tongue.gif I've not experienced that for a while since my Hippo VB days. I think you'd seriously do damage to the IEM before the amp itself. And a special note for the clarity with H-100 and this combo.

I'd love to try the C&C X02 but it's $300. eek.gif With a purchase like that I fear what would happen over years and the battery become unusable any longer?

Great news dude. I was realized this amp about 2 months ago, but didn't find detailed information. Then, was focused to JDSLabs C421, Ibasso T5, D4 etc. smile.gif Waiting your opinions between E11, C421 and BH.
