My Ko Jo KM - 01 with headphone set up :

Source : iPhone 4s
Amp : Ko Jo KM - 01
Headphone : Sennheiser HD 700 with after market from Japan
Ultrasone Sig Pro with Oyaide after market cable
Cable : diy USB to Lod Van Den Hul Tone Arm

SQ With this set up :
My IMO

Ultrasone Sig Pro has better SQ than Sennheiser HD 700

Ko Jo KM - 01 is very good for all iems
Like Um Miracle , Fit Ear MH 335 DW , Tralucent Audio 1+2
and
all Headphone with low Impedance
Like Ultrasone Sig Pro , Sig DJ , Grado HF2, Fostex TH 900

With high impedance headphone is only good , I feel has not enough power to drive high impedance headphone like
Sennheiser HD 700 , HD 800 and Ortho like LCD 2 , LCD 3



Source : IPhone 4s
Dac : Venture Craft Go Dap DD1 LE with op amp : Muse 02
Amp : Ko Jo KM - 01
Headphone : Sennheiser HD 700 with japan after marker Cable
Ultrasone Sig Pro with Oyaide after market cable

SQ :
With additional external idevice Dac Go Dap DD 1 LE op amp Muse 02
Improve the SQ significant

With high impedance now HD 700 SQ is very good
My Sig Pro is excellent now .

Has better detail, separation , soundstage , bass detail and bass impact



With 1 small AAA battery Ko Jo KM - 01 can last about 15 hours

My personal impression :

The SQ from Ko Jo KM - 01
High : very smooth , detail , clear and clean high is not Harsh at all
Mid : very sweet midrange , thick and clean and Clear , Tube like midrange
Bass : is very good impact , but like Tube is not tight like solid State amp
Soundstage : you feel like In big studio recording , not like My Eagnus is very Wide and tall
Separation : very Good separation that you can detect the instrument placement very Easy .
Norse Floor : very Low norse Floor and black bacground

Overall : very sweet and intimate sounding Amp , that you can use For long Time listening , it is
Never make My Ears tired or fatigue.

Battery Life : single AAA
Can Last about 15 hours
I have tested With random songs from 10 am until next day 1 am about 15 hours
I use ultrasone Sig DJ as test
Volume is about 90 %

Minus : only one Ko Jo KM - 01 change the colour , because the casing made from
Solid Brass dye CNC and not treated again rust .

Suggestion : handle with care , wrap with soft cloth and anti slip mate.
Every time After exchange the battery please wipe with very soft cloth
For eye wear
