C&C BH Portable Headphone Amp (80 Hours from a Single Charge!) [Buyer Review] - Page 60

post #886 of 3284

Clark, thanks for suggesting carrying case for BH combo :-)

 

agree, pollychen must bow to H20 who uncovered BH conspiracy and timely allerted all esteemed head-fiers to get one :-)

seriously i still kept one BH from pollychen in my ebay shopping cart, since i do not need this now i will empty the cart and this BH will be available again. good hunting chaps. i can only assure this is brilliant little amp for little money which has a big musical heart, i do not know anyone who would regret purchasing it which speaks volumes about BH sound quality. beyersmile.png

Well, considering they only started shipping again yesterday I think it's ok.

I think they are going by who ordered when. My BH was bought on the 9th of Feb, so that's probably why I got DHL delivery.

I think that's the case too" going by the chronological order of purchase. They did say though, any purchases before the 18th of feb will receive DHL express shipping.

I keep forgetting to turn my BH off..... I don't know how? But I just realized it was on all night, and I left it on all day during work.

 

And I've only ever charged it twice. I might charge it tomorrow since I'm unsure how much longer it'll keep kicking.

I wonder if it drains slower if there's no signal running through it?

Yeah...That's where you and I differ haha

 

I was using an E11, which was plugged into my dap. the dap wasn't playing, it was just for some reason, my E11's volume pot was just a bit turned, hence turning it on. Either way, signal or no signal, the E11's battery life isn't all that great, so it died by morning anyways.

Come to think of it, my light is pretty dim

The picture doesn't look very dim, but considering how close I am to the light, it's not glaring by any means. It's been brighter. You can eve tell by some other user pics, their light is much brighter than mine is in this pic

Here are some very basic notes on my experiences with the C&C BH so far...

 

As expected it pairs very well with a variety of headphones that I own such as:

 

M-100s, ATH-ES9Ws, Signature Pro DJs

 

It surprised me significantly with its pairings with the TH-900s and even more so the Denon D600s.  The D600s sound amazing off of this amp.  It tightens up every thing and just makes this can a lot of fun.  It is has been a few days since I listened to them via the CC BH but I'll listen some more today and post up more specific details.  So far I'd say the CC BH made the biggest difference with the D600s and TH-900s.

 

I do not care for the pairing with the LCD-3s or LCD-2s.  It is obvious to me at least that it's struggling to give them enough juice to sound as good as they should.  The bass most noticeably impacted but the rest of the sound is a few notches down from where it should be.

 

I just starting using the LCDs with it so these are initial impressions and as I get time to make some notes, I'll toss up my impressions on here specifically for each headphone I own.

 

I do not currently have access to my HD-800s so no impression with those yet.   Same goes for my Mad Dogs which are on their way to being upgraded to Alpha pads.

congrats, what actually surprises me is you have such expensive powerful headphones so why you choose to drive them with such a smallish amp? i would power them with a dedicated station amps which got enough juice to inject in these babies since we talking about completely different league headphones.

 

IMHO BH amp is mostly suit for IEMs but not power hungry helmets. if i choose to drive good loudspeakers i would opt for powerful amp at least 30% more powerful on Watt than loudspeakers. same IMHO applies to high-end headphones.

 

anyway, what amazes me even more is that you tell this little baby was able to drive your monsters? if so BH is a true gem. :-)

I would love to know how the Mad Dogs pair with this.

I use the V200, Schiit Lyr, and Gungnir to power them at home.  I'm soon to add the WA6SE.

 

I was curious what the CC BH could do and so far I am impressed with it.  I also have the Fiio E12 that I am comparing as well but I've been down with the flu and very busy as of late so not a lot of time to do long sessions with the equipment. :(

As soon as I have them back I'll be sure to post up my impressions.

I can't get enough of this amp, its just a fantastic sounding portable amp that I think can compete with much more expensive ones.  My SM3 V2 sounds amazing compared to when I used the E11 and the SM3 sounded really nice then.  I can't wait to hear how the e-Q5 I ordered is going to sound now, I sold a pair but regretted ever since and now with the C&C BH I can only imagine how good they'll sound.  I'm going to be recovering from a surgery so I'll have plenty of time to compare the e-Q5 to the SM3 and I think the e-Q5 will hold its own against them as well.

post #900 of 3284

Oh, so you ended up going for the e-Q5? Amazon.co.jp I'm guessing... wink.gif

 

Btw, I can't wait to plug my Yamaha EPH-100 into the BH and see how much better they get.

 

With the E11 they sound a bit congested, even though 3D separation is still there.
