For me it is.

Ok. It would be for me as well since I am somewhat sensitive to bright highs. Where I personally find the C&C BH to shine is with warmer or at least neutral sources (such as the Clip Zip), or with warmer or neutral sounding headhphones/iems (such as the WS99's or CSK1000's). Even though the BH might not work well for you with your 70's, I would highly recommend that you hang onto it, as it will work very well for you someday (ie get the CKS1000's or the WS99's and it will work for you very well!).

I'll just join your fray, I want it. Small, powerful and long battery? That's insane. Is it sensitive to EMI? With an iPhone 5 for example.

I could just put both my rig and the amp in different pockets.

Call me crazy but I want to see a direct comparison between the c&c bh and the apex glacier, only reason I ask is cause everyone says that the glacier is forward sounding and fast but somewhat weak down low, well isn't that exactly like the bh? I know it's 500 bucks but still let's really see if its all that. The bh stood right up to my arrow 4g and that's 300 US dollars

I owned the Glacier and though I liked it I didn't feel it was worth $495.  It was paired with my Galaxy Note 2 and sounded awesome.  Only tried that setup with my DT 770's though.  I don't think it's as fast as my C3 >BH combo which cost me $230.  I think the Glacier>Note 2 had better synergy with the DT770's, which sounds unlistenable with my C3>BH combo IMO.  The BH has tone shaping capabilities to allow for synergy across a more vast array of phones.  I'm not saying that the BH is better, but it can certainly hold it's own against the Glacier.  

 

Basically I got the C3>BH>TF 10 for $470.  Can't complain, and believe me i can complain LOL.

 

As far as the BH being weak down low, that is very source dependent.  I thought that the BH with the C3 (Haven't tried this with silver cable yet) lacked low end depth compared to my iPod Video, but the iPod's depth is foggy, so my initial perception of the source was way off.

Care to do a quick comparison? I was looking to get either a 3G or 4G and actually sold my BH

Only thing u got wrong was that the arrow 4g is twice as powerful as the bh

Is that true across all impedance output? Some amps are built better for low impedance output; others for high impedance.

all I know is that the arrow can drive 600 ohm and the bh can drive 300 ohm, also the arrow automatically adapts to the impedance of whatever iem or can that's plugged in it

Yes that was early on and I was really only using how the volume pot was responding

Whats your line out cable (brand), where did you buy it? Its very cool.beerchug.gif

To the posters who have said this amp is bright, please give the amp at least 50hrs and it will settle down.

If you read all my posts in this thread, I have gone from not being able to having the LF switch on let alone the SF and I now use both for my Momentum`s and just LF for my W4`s.

 

This is via LOD of an Ipod Touch (2nd gen). I would avoid a silver interconnect though as (for me) does make it brighter with both switches on.

 

Edit: I also use high gain, yes little play in the volume pot but it does seem to sound better this way.
