C&C BH Portable Headphone Amp (80 Hours from a Single Charge!) [Buyer Review] - Page 211

post #3151 of 3283

I've just discovered this CC BH gem during my research on portable amps and dacs! Seems to be very well reviewed.

 

Would really appreciate some advice... I am planning to pair the BH with the new Beyerdynamic T51p and my Shure SE215 IEMs. Has anyone paired these before? Maybe with the previous T50p? I plan to use the BH with an iPod touch 4th Gen with ALACs. Thanks in advance!

If you want your 80 hour charge to last for a month, don't bother getting the Mikros 90's. They sounds so good with the BH that you'll listen to them non-stop, and that 80 hour charge might not last much more than a week! :)

Hi, anyone tried to pair the BH with either IM02, TE-05 or FX850? how do they sound?

This has been a very informative thread, it led me to upgrade my E6 to this amp, last week. Just so people know, Amazon has these in stock, and prime is available for it.

I got mine yesterday. It sounds excellent with the Ultrasone HFI-450 and Beyerdynamic DTX 910. :)

I know it has been said previously in the thread, but I feel it's worth saying again. I recently got the HE-400s, and the C&C BH does quite well driving them.

So did you get it? How do you like it compared to the E6?

he-400 didnt seem to be driven well by the c&c bh2 at all for me, there was lots of clipping/distortion especially on the bass unless u were listening to very low volume levels.

For me it works fine. Always has.

I guess if someone expects to boost the bass, then some other headphone amp would be better (although I wonder if any portable amp would be suitable for that with the HE-400s). But I use the high gain setting on the C&C BH, and it does very well where my Note 2 and Sansa Clip+ struggle.

must just be me listening to unsafe listening levels then, lol.

 

for me i have to max out the dial on the volume on high gain just to get to acceptable listening levels, which seems like it does power it ok but is struggling

 

and i dont mind about the boosting bass, the he-400 isnt really a basshead anyway. the problem i found was that there was that there is bass clipping/distortion on alot of edm tracks with that combo. other genres sound pretty fine

Must be those crappy he-400's then.

:wink:

 

Seriously, I've been using my newly aquired Nf'd T50RP's on the BH quite a bit, with the LF switch on, and they just sound fantastic without any distortion or clipping etc. Actually, I don't get that happening with any of my headphones (that I can think of). But I don't listen at uber high volumes like you are doing (would be scared to!), so that's probably it.

Doesn't have to mean the volume output is too high. And hearing is individual. +20dB to -20dB compared to average hearing is considered normal, albeit +20dB is rare I think. And saying that listening to x powered by y at volume z is too high could potentially be the equivalent to "Here's $2, don't spend it all at once."

Just sayin. The BH is cool.

I've been having a great time with my c&c bh and X1 combo. I'm hearing detail and soundstage depth that I've never heard before. I just got the DX50 and will soon try this triple combo.
