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!
Yup, pretty much how I now feel about all my sources headphones outs.
