I've read somewhere on here that the 02 and c5 have about the same seperation, hopefully this is true. I will have to wait for you to get yours and see what you think. Im patient and will wait for your response.

I just received the BH2 yesterday and am listening to it right now. I cannot believe the performance of this thing, it's astounding! I'm not one to praise stuff either but this little amp is insane. I like this thing more than my The International by ALO Audio and as you all know thats a 600 dollar amp. The build quality is also excellent. 

I have a 7th batch order of the DX50 which ships the 30th and I'm very excited to pair it with this amp, right now I'm pairing it with a Clip+

I'm not so sure about the seperation, but the C5 is a little warm sounding. 

It's kinda analog-ish sounding I guess. The sound is really full, has that soundstage expanding quality, but it seems to gloss over microdetail a little. 

 

The O2 is a better amp, clearly. I wouldn't necessarily place the C5 above the cc bh, even though I haven't heard it. I am slightly disappointing in the C5, was expecting something more neutral. 

 

It is however, slightly better than the HO of the DX50, and I have to add that my IEMs have a warm sig. Pair the C5 with a colder sounding headphone, and you got yourself that synergy everyone talks about.

Nice one ksk, I've added your initial  impression to the OP with the others. :beerchug:

I agree C&C BH is pretty damn cool, you should really enjoy it with your DX50.

How would you rate this compared to the C5 and the D42! I've narrowed it down to these three and for the life of me I can not decide.

I haven't heard either of those sorry. I recommend you refer to the list of user impressions below my review in the first post, have a read through those and gather some opinions.

I have read almost all the pages here, you did a great job that's why I keep coming back to this. I have actually read the front page at least 3-4 times. I think for its size and performance it should be a win win. I will have to convince the wife I need yet another amp.

Give it a try, I can safely say I doubt you'll be disappointed I say that with confidence from the thread and happy owners we've build up. For $100 bananas you can't go wrong, it has a great soundstage, separation, sounds smooth and rather euphoric. To add has some really cool features, dual outputs, and honestly runs for 80+ hours of a charge. As i've said people have thrown away their $200-$300 amps for BH, don't let the price fool you.

Thanks, they have the BH2 on amazon for 105.00 shipped.

The only two downsides are:

 

1. The channel imbalance can be bad when listening to low levels on very sensitive iems. So using it as a bedtime rig with CIEMs isn't recommended.

 

2. It is highly susceptible to EMI from cellphones in non-3G areas (or LTE) so when you drop from a 3G area you will have a really bad noise if you haven't separated your phone and the BH. Otherwise, really makes a difference, I remember the first time I plugged it in, coming from the Fiio E6, "Wow, I guess this is what music is supposed to sound like.

 

Otherwise it's a grand sounding amp. Soundstage is large and it makes for a very pleasant listening experience. (I haven't used it for any headphones, just iems).

I love this damn thing. Have had it a few months and two charges. And the sound is just amazing, even with my iPod Classic 160gb player. Using a pair of entry level customs and a twag cable. Wow is all I can say. Thanks hifi and the rest.

i believe BH is good for DAPs which are not powerful enough or lacks some dynamics and preamping. BH will go magic with high gain and LF and SF switchers.

only if DAP is higher class like AK or HiSound or similar you may find BH not relevant.

 

with C3 i find BH having best possible synergies and for a 100$ this is not brainer unless you prepared to pay 200$+.

post #2940 of 3289

Have to say, I always keep mine on low gain. Otherwise I find it getting too noisy too quickly and starts to become jumbled. 

 

Currently with 
Low > LF > SF and my TF10s. Gives quite an enjoyable sound :beyersmile:
