That's what i'm planning, is to use a FiiO LOD cable and with it. Same one I'm using now with my E11.

Honestly, BH makes my Colorfly CK4 , C3, and Hifiman HM-601's headphone outs sound average in comparison, those are not cheap players. Every source I've tried gains some improvements, even the mighty Clip+, ipod touch to my old school Sony Mini Disc player. The amp takes what's there and improves the signal for you, expands the stage, increases detail, clarity, all it needs is a decent signal to extract from, how good that original signal is will depend on your outcome. However, of course what ever is being driven will sound better than the headphone out alone, whether it needs to be amped or not imo. Many members reporting positive results with low impedance IEM for example. You can see this by all the positive reports members are giving confirming.

I do highly recommend using line outs though, only headphone out if LOD is not available.

Well, I hope you enjoy the amp, it is a clear upgrade over E11, you should be mighty impressed from where I'm standing. I do recommend switching out your FiiO LOD, but you can look into that at a later date.

I don't like saying it to much, but If I'm just going to put it out there, BH puts FiiO E11 to absolute shame.

Now other members have confirmed, I can say that with 100% confidence.

H2O is just helping me go deaf a little faster because I can't stop listening through this amp, it is just phenomenal for a $100.

That's settled then I will be ordering it tomorrow through szclever88 seller on ebay.

I guess the only thing I find strange is that this amp is older by manufacture than the E11 yet we only stumble upon it now. 2 years after its released...

I guess sometimes things slip through the radar on Western audiophile forums being a Chinese brand. FiiO's probably lucky it did go unnoticed for some time. tongue_smile.gif

I really wasn't expecting this much attention originally, for most parts want the thread to feed from members opinions, not mine.

The new upgrade Leather ALPHA Pads looks so nice, hard to not order now.


Looking forward to your results with the T50's. I have a couple and also bunch of vintage orthos, not the most sensitive things, so something like this is a necessity for portable use when the weather gets a bit better.

Just barely scraping by selectively with the amp I now have.

 

You're gonna be impressed with the cans I bet, if you have not heard one before ( a decent mod )

Lff's Paradox is the other contender, unless you want to DIY.

 

 Expecting this amp will do them the justice they deserve, do let me know.

Has anybody tried C&C XO2 with Sennheiser HD 25?

post #520 of 3279

Where do you buy this from ?

 

Ebay ? Can you give me a few links.

 

Anything from China unfortunately has a solemn threat of fake stuff even Fiio started having the ability to check serial numbers on its website but from everyone's testimony this is becoming very much appealing especially hearing from a user who uses the same source. 

 

Can anyone affirm its bass quality ? Excels E11 and cMoy as well ? (Note the cMoy's bass boost) What about E17, I will be trying out E17 soon, so i will understand better what you are saying.

 

E17 won Editors Choice award

Most members have been purchasing here through pollychen.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/C-C-BH-Portable-Headphone-AMP-battery-AMP-CC-BH-NEW-/251050614620?pt=US_Pro_Audio_Amplifiers&hash=item3a73c85f5c&_uhb=1

Yes, better bass quality than both E11 and CmoyBB, (I've had both) makes E11 sound muddy and veiled. and Cmoy sound bloated. Through pages of the thread I have mentioned the improvement in bass texture. It's not a huge amount of quantity using the LF switch, around the same as E11 on EQ1, but much...much cleaner.

Going to order it today from pollychen.

 

Btw, what LOD cable would you guys recommend to use with this amp and iPod classic?

 

Thinking about ditching the FiiO one lol

I'd recommend something silver plated like Techo Kid linked., some members have been reporting pure silver is a touch bright. Silver plated will give you more air, detail, over copper. Have a look on eBay under "iPod lod" at some options also.
