C&C BH Portable Headphone Amp (80 Hours from a Single Charge!) [Buyer Review] - Page 215

post #3211 of 3286
Im having an issue with my Bh2. I left it plugged into a wall charger all night and the red light flashed. I unplugged it and turned it on and nothing happens like the battery is still totally dead. It charged for over 12 hours. I Know the charger works fine. I also tried charging it overnight from the computer USB just to try something different.

ALso, the amp still works, because it works if it is plugged in to the charger and turned on. The battery is not taking a charge. It doesnt have a ton of hours on it, probably 300 or so, and only 10 or 20 charges.

Anyone have any thoughts? see if C&C will RMA it? I assume I would have to spend $30 of sending a $100 amp back to china and wait a month, so thats not my first choice

The battery is likely gone. You can replace it yourself, using either a genuine or generic Nokia BP-5M li-ion battery.

Is there a problem if c&c bh is overcharged? Like in aptoids?

The battery inside BH2 has a protection circuit. In theory it will never get over-charged or over-discharged. Then again, they can still fail. Better just not to charge it for too long.

Do the Nokia batteries suffer from fakes like the samsung batteries commonly do? I mean, can I get away with the $7 battery, or do I have to buy the Genuine $20 battery to be reasonably sure its good.

Also, wtf did I do wrong that it died after 20 charges? THis shouldnt have happened IMO. I use the BH2 like I use all my electronics and Ive never experienced a battery failure before. Did I just get a bad one by luck of the draw?

Yes, they do and very often. I reckon at least 90% of all Nokia battery sold online are fake. You don't really need to buy the genuine Nokia battery though, as they are really good aftermarket brand that works just as well as the real deal. A brand I'll recommend is CameronSino, which in my experience has very consistent quality. In fact, JDS labs uses their battery on their C5 amp as well. You can find them on eBay for around $10 or so.

 

You are just being bad luck, I'll guess. There are however a few reasons why a battery can fail.

Thanks for the info!

I havent looked, so feel free to tell me just to google it, but does the battery just pop out and swap? or is it more involved than that?
post #3219 of 3286

It should just pop up once you open the case. However, do note that it is going to be a very tight fit so just push it slowly.

post #3220 of 3286
Strange...I opened both ends of the case and tried to push the PCB out. It is extremely hard to move either way, and I didnt want to damage anything, so I stopped after a small piece of the PCB board chipped off (a very tiny corner that is non functional near the switches)

I flipped the switches back and forth a couple times of frustration and turned the volume pot and....volia! the power came on. I must have had a bad connection on the battery. I've never dropped it or violently shaken it or anything, so im still unsure why it happened, but it works now, so thats good I guess. Still not great that it come loose in the first place, but Im just happy to have my amp back.

Thanks for the info and advice ClieOS

I already have the C&C BH2 and I'm really happy! (my first amp was the Fiio E6)

 

I will buy soon the popular Sandisk Sansa Clip+

 

My headphones is "ok" (JBL J55) but I would like something better!  I want to turn the volume UP without distorsion!

 

I'm looking for a good headphones for my setup!

 

Over-ears with great bass and good quality sound!

 

I dont know how much I should spend but I'm not rich!

 

My JBL cost me around 60$

 

Maybe I could spend 100-150$...

200$ sounds a bit pricey but maybe I could afford that if it really really really worth it!

 

Someone can give me few headphones models???  I will probably buy it on ebay (I'm in Quebec/Canada and everything's overpriced here)

 

 

 

thanks guy!

I would suggest you research Audio Technica ATH-M50, which sounds very good with C&C BH2.

post #3224 of 3286

Awesome!

 

Thank you H20Fidelity for the quick answer!!! (ozkan too!)

 

I thought someone would tell me to do some searches!

 

I love this forum and the members!

 

 

 

 

 

Headphones looks good too!

 

Great...I can buy it in Canada...

 

140$ + taxes  = 160$ CND 

 

Is this price fair?

Yes, that's about right, ATH-M50 in Australia is about $159 - $165 depending where you look.

You could always keep an eye out on our for sale forums finding one cheaper though that may take some time.

It's a pity you're not in Australia, I have a pair for $90 atm. Though remember buying new is a good feeling and you should be covered with warranty.
