I haven't tried it yet, I hear from the seller it sounds  nice though.

So my question, will this have enough power to drive a DT770 250 ohm, with authority or should I go right for the E12? I'd like to warm the DT's up a little. I know the C&C from memory is clean sounding and from the E12 reviews is seems it's a little warmer and has more power. You think the extra $30 for the E12 is worth it?

 

BH does lack some authority in driving power, even though the specs claim 300ohm max driving capability. Not being a full size headphone user myself, I cannot give you a specific answer, most of the owners find it adequate for IEM's and following the thread members have been using fullsize high impedance cans. I would personally refer you to the members impressions in the first post below the review, where a summary of impressions can be found.

Has anyone done any measurements on the C&C BH amp?

What kind of measurments?

post #2856 of 3199

Measurements to see whether the advertised specifications are correct.

So then, people are ditching their DAP/BH combo for Ibasso DX50? Is that the gist of it? 

post #2858 of 3199
People are always ditching something for something else. I'm sure the dx50 is worthy. But the c3/bh combo is worthy also... I for one am not feeling the need to change (yet!).
post #2859 of 3199
Well, the DX50 sure looks tempting but I've just managed to pick up a used 4 month old 8GB C3 for $60. After having spent some time with it, I guess I will be a happy camper for a while. Have not hook it up with the BH2 as yet as I would like to get to know the sound first and add the BH in to hear the difference. So, what do guys think I can expect sound wise from the C3 to the C3/BH2 combo. Thanks in advance.

There are some good comparisons in the beginning of this thread, I know from what I have read that the BH2 makes it funner and opens the sound stage a lot. I almost bought this combo as well but have jumped on the DX50 and the Fiio X3 wagon. I have heard nothing but good things with the C3/BH combo, so you should be quite happy, I know if you are in the USA that amazon has the BH2 for 105 bucks which ain't to bad.

Hi howdy, thanks for the thoughts. I do already have the BH2 and for that reason, I decided to go along with the C3. I did look into the DX50 and X3 but for the price I got for the C3 , I guess I would give it a shot to hear for myself the synergy everyone is talking about here.

I'm still really happy with my iPod Classic - SPC LOD - BH combo. HOWEVER, if I could get a 8GB C3 for that price, I would certainly consider giving it a shot.  Am I right in thinking that a silver connect from C3 to BH is way to go? Or does that depend strictly on the headphone/IEM? Would that be preferred for the SRH840?

 

Thanks everyone.

Actually I'm using a pure copper cable but a lot of members reported good results with spc and silver. I think you might be right that the phones used do plays a part.

The copper would bring out the lows and make it sound funner and the silver would bring out the highs more. I like the funner sound because its fun.

It's also about capitalizing on the strengths or leveling the weaknesses and it all comes down to taste/preference which is based on your choice of music, iems, source, the length of your ear canals, the tips used and insertion depth. Or you can just go with whatever sounds better to you. Silver may be too bright, copper could sound too.... not bright.
