I ended up getting the O2 and paired it with the Beyer 880 250.  On battery power it seems that I am running close to max.  Anyone else see this as well?

I don't get anywhere near max when running my DT880 250's from my O2.

And sometimes, just sometimes, it's pretty loud :-D

iphone 5, double amp'd.  Or ipad mini also double amp'd.  

 

at 12 o'clock (mid point), it sounds very nice and more than enough power - i'm not complaining.  I just figured it would get painfully loud at max and i was surprised that it did not.  Not that I want that, just an observation....

 

i suppose my initial post was a bit of a dramatic exaggeration :-)

Was just wondering. I have that combo but use an iPod 5.5G with a line-out dock. Volume would be midway at most with good extension throughout.

Cheers!

audio source (samsung galaxy note2 ) and iems (yamaha eph-100) with C&C BH2  could it work or should i go for Fiio e11 ? they are almost the same price tag in european/uk ebay and amazon . only 10 gbp difference.

curious if anyone would think the fiio e12 would be better suited with my m-duo's.. with there recessed mids.  its a toss up with this and a c&c bh.  looking for portable amp to get on the first.

Hi, I had a Fiio E11 which broke a while back.

After some reading around this site, I've ordered a Colorfly C3 and a C&C BH2.

I bought a connector cable via eBay from Onest11 (contributor on here).

And finally, am using Audeo Phonak PFE 122's (or whichever model at the same price point - £149 - has no remote control).

 

So, I stumbled across this thread, at it seems that the Fiio E12 is much better than the C&C BH.

 

However, firstly, all the other pics I've seen of the C&C BH2 show it as being black, but here is silver.

So can I ask, was it the C&C BH2 that was reviewed? or an earlier version?

(not even sure if there IS an earlier version; some reviews include the number "2" at the end; others don't!).

 

Any thoughts on E12 vs C&C BH2? Particularly with regards to which would best match my C3 and IEM combo?

 

I do like bass, although not to ridiculous excesses, and the ability to click a switch to get more (when I have mood) is a bonus for me!

Obviously though, I hope the amp will give a good amount of bass naturally anyway, even without any booster switch engaged!

 

I can't afford both amps, but I've no problem returning or selling the BH2 if convinced that the E12 is better for me.

And based on what I've just read, it seems it is! But again, knowledgeable comments on the synergy of those amps with my set up would be appreciated!

 

Many thanks! :)

The original BH is sealed whereas the BH2 has a replaceable battery.  That's allegedly the only difference.

 

In regards to the amps and sound, with my M100s I actually prefer the BH2 over the e12 but you really can't go wrong with either.  The 30 dollar price difference sways the pendulum even further towards the BH2.
