C&C BH Portable Headphone Amp (80 Hours from a Single Charge!) [Buyer Review] - Page 199

post #2971 of 3289

Still using this on a daily basis. Felt like they never needed a charge... Still the same combo, C&C BH, c3, and T-Peos H200.

 

However, have been switching between my Ms1s and H200 and a beyerdynamic XP3.

 

H200 is still an amazing combo, thanks to @Gintaras for this set up, however, sometimes the beyer beats it in bass. So I switch it up depending on what I'm listening to.

 

Edit : Has anyone tried this C&C BH and c3 with the Beyerdynamic DT770 and or V-Moda M100? I'm itching to get a new pair of cans.

Has anyone tried one of these with the meelectronics m-duo. im looking for a amp for these and I have been looking at the c&c bh. im a little worried because I want a bass boost like feature but these also boos treble.  the treble on the m-duo are a bit to sharp for me when I have to turn up the volume to actually push them..  or should I find a amp with a warmer sound to balance the v shape in the sound signature.

Sounds like the BH could be a bad match. However the treble boost is fairly high up. I't in the upper treble and mostly adds sparkle. But some iems can't handle that and instead get harsher.

thanks.  the treble doesn't get so much harsh, just a little to much of It for me where it becomes slightly uncomfortable.  I appreciate the help. I have been looking for a amp for a couple weeks and bee having some trouble finding some help.  thanks again.

Anyway, the BH is great. I only slightly favor the Apex Glacier for its sound in general, the pairings with almost all of my iems is however better since they all have a bit smoothed out and scooped out mids. But the stepped attenuator is what really makes the difference as all of my iems are quite sensitive and there is channel imbalance in the lowest volumes. I have to push the BH to a bit higher than moderate volumes (probably where most non-audio enthusiasts listen but I'm very cautious of my hearing after looking at audiograms of noise injuries) for it to disappear almost completely.

I have an astell&Kern AK100/fiio e12/ Beyerdynamics DT 1350 headphones. Am happy with sound but the fiio is a little big and heavy for walking. So have been looking for a smaller lighter amp. The C&C BH sounds like it may be a good fit. Am after some opinions on how well it would replace the Fiio with this combo?

 

On a different note what is the finish like on the amp. Have looked closely at some pics and it seems very crude the main extrusion is aysymetrical, none of the holes seem to line up with the switches and the screws are not concentric. Do they look ok or a bit of a mess?

 

Cheers

I've seen those pictures too, but mine looks and feels of quality. It has held up well, sounds great, and never seems to need charging. The finish seems to hold up very well without showing any wear - it looks like I just got it. As for the switches, on mine they all line up well and seem well done. Also, even though it is small, it has a quality weight to it and is built like a tank. I could probably throw it on the ground and have it still work perfectly and I cannot say that about most of my audio gear. BTW, the size fits pretty well with my DX50 and looks like a better match to your AK100.

Thanks for the input Barra, I am thinking that the pics must be almost a prototype.

I read this tread from the beginning and also the tread "So, I´m looking for that perfect amp" and I muss say I like the way how people describe this little amp and how well it pares tho DX50 I couldn't resist and just have pull the trigger. I should get mine before Christmas. I´m also interested in the Arrow and the CORDA Quickstep, but for now I´m trying to focus on my Desktop rig (Sennheiser HD 650 and Bottlehead Crack??)

Thanks to all for the reviews and Information, I get to you back when I get mine.

You will really happy with your purchase, I have this with the DX50 and it sounds really good. I will be getting the I basso D42 as well and can not wait to get it.

I don't quite get it. I was thinking that something like the DX50 would be a C3/BH combo replacement. Are people getting the BH for their DX50's for added power? Is it really required?

 

I'm not so sure that I would want to get the DX50 (or X3 or whatever) if I also felt the need to pair it with the BH. I have my eye on the X5, so I'm really hoping that it won't need additional amping.

i've decided not to get this amp thinking that i already have 2 amps in my inventory....to me, having a 3rd amp would be too much....plus the recent tragedy that happened in my country, i'm not really in a purchasing mood.

You are right the DX50 does not need an amp and I generally never use them together but the BH2 opens the sound stage a bit more. I buy an amp to improve sound not to really amplify. And rigs paired correctly are awesome not necessarily needed, as I'm sure you already know. To each there own.

Yeah I see what you mean and sorry to hear that. Hopefully all is slowly getting better, that was a tragic occurrence. I also agree two amps is plenty and that is the reason for me selling my E12.

Hmm, I get it. I think I have been taking for granted how the BH opens the sound stage and I have gotten spoiled by it. I can see that I might end up being stuck having to use it with whatever DAC/DAP I get in the future lol!
