C&C BH Portable Headphone Amp (80 Hours from a Single Charge!) [Buyer Review] - Page 31

post #451 of 3289

That was my first thoughts (you can scroll back), but after a proper listen I didn`t hear the potential but now my opinion has changed for the better.

Omg, head-fi needs stop raping my wallet.

Now I want to get this amp to upgrade my FiiO E11.

Need to buy my Rockit R-50s first though. Grrr... never enough money!

You want regret getting the C&C BH, I can't stop listening to my SM3 through it, amazing clarity and a full sound and it also gives the soundstage more width and depth not to mention it actually improves over all detail which I wasn't expecting at all.

 

The build quality is top-notch it really feel very well built and it has some weight to it and there's no plastic its all metal.  Its about the size of a credit card or a little smaller than the E11 which again is so out classed buy this amp its not even funny.

The fact this thing runs FOR DAYS without recharging is another HUGE plus for portability. 

 

Love my BH. I still haven't charged it. I'm probably gonna charge it tomorrow and use it sparingly tonight because I don't wanna be stuck without music on my way home from work.

I can't say enough about how good it make my SM3 V2's sound now, they sound they way they should with more crisp highs, more detail in the mids and cleaner bass along with a more spacious soundstage.  I have blog where I do IEM reviews only and I had to put this up because its so good.  I was thinking of getting a $400 or $500 amp and while they might sound better than this does I don't think it will be so much so to warrant spending $300 or $400 more dollars on them.

Thats what cought my attention. 80 hours is something unthinkable before to me. Thats a whole week listening 10 hours a day, or 2 WEEKS listening 5 hours a day. My E11 runs out of power after 5 hours with battery at High Power, which is a pain in the as$. Plus the added sound quality you guys talk about. I'm reallly curious. I was considering the E12, but this battery duration appeals more to me.

Yeah my E11 while it said you get around 10 hours or more I only got around 6 so 80 hours is awesome and I'm only going to have to charge it every week an a half give or take.

Wow that's pretty epic!

Now I'm really at a crossroads... thinking whether to get the amp first. Or the Rock It Sounds R-50s IEM.

Btw, what seller do you guys use to buy this amp?

I looked on ebay and the cheapest I can get it at is £63.

I can't wait tell I get a new DAP, either the Colorfly CK4 or the Hisound Nova and paired with the BH I'll be in audiophile heaven.

Colorfly C3 works well too, making a neat package. I do recommend something with a line out (for example CK4+) to get the most benefits, not an absolute though.

If I didn't own Colorfly CK4 I would use C3 as a back up and be happy.

It's going to take me some time to research a new DAP for me. I want an external portable DAC as well, why you ask, well just because. I want thin, playlists of some sort to reorganize what goes on the player without actually copying the files to a different location on my PC. Good built in DAC but still with ability to get digital signal out in case I do that external DAC and also good line out to bypass the amp but use internal DAC if needed. Any initial suggestions for that...will be using both my C&C and Arrow.

I'm in the market for a small portable amp at the moment, and the BH seems to be ticking all the boxes for me at the moment.... Excellent reports on SQ, small, excellent battery, seems like I can't go wrong.

 

However, can any owners comment on the BH's susceptibility to electromagnetic interference when used in close proximity to a cellphone? I'd be using the BH with both my iPod Classic and iPhone 4S, but wonder if I might hear the dreaded di-dit di-dit di-dit when it's sat on my phone.

 

Would be very grateful for any observations from owners smile.gif

 

Cheers,

Just got my BH from the mailbox and been listening for apparently the last hour and I have to say that it sounds absolutely amazing. You guys weren't kidding about the voodoo SF switch.

Some quick first impressions before I devote a few days to listening and testing with various genres and songs:
Chain: iPhone 4 -> BH -> AD900X, iPhone 4 -> FiiO L10 -> BH -> AD900X
- Been using Zedd - Spectrum (Album Mix), Porter Robinson - Easy, and Kaskade - 4AM (Adam K & Soha Remix) to test the various switches and outputs.
- Right now, I'm liking OUT1 [GC - Hi, LF - On, SF - On]. OUT1 by itself makes my AD900X hiss, but turning either the SF or Gain on eliminates this.
- I originally thought I'd prefer OUT2, but like the presentation of vocals much more on OUT1
-- I thought my cans wouldn't need it, but turning the gain on really brings my headphones to life. Now, I hear such a fullness that I can't stand the sound coming out my iPhone with just the AD900X plugged into the headphone jack.
- I know there have been plenty of size comparison pictures, but it really is quite tiny and portable. I'm amazed by the size and the amount of power the BH packs.

Just wanted to get some initial thoughts out of the way. I don't have any prior experience with amps, but the sound quality difference with and without the BH is astounding. My E12 should also be arriving this week, so really looking forward to comparing the two amps' sounds, particularly the better quality bass that Bill-P wrote about in his comparison.

Off to listen some more, thanks H20 and others for inspiring me!

While using the BH with my iPhone, it did respond to the signal. A bit annoying. Only happened once for a few seconds in the past hour I've been using it, though. Gonna see tomorrow when I drive to work how it fares, though.
