Mo-Fi Headphones from Blue Microphones: Multi-link, Amplified Headphone Goodness - Head-Fi TV - Page 5

Way to make an entrance into headphones. Knew they would try something bold.

 

Kudos to Blue!

Nope, it's already marketed as audiophile: "Custom high-powered audiophile amplifier"

Why are you dismissing it out of hand?

I'd say don't knock it til you've tried it... There are alot of wannabe "audio snob's" on here that put stuff down just because.. You haven't even heard them yet!! Jeeze!

Not knocking it, I just already have an amp, so if I could get an ampless version I'd be more interested since I wouldn't use it on the go anyways.

I'm not dismissing it out of hand - I already ordered a pair.

 

I was just trying to make a joke.  Maybe I should wait until after I've had some coffee, eh?

"I think we'll just have to settle with turning the amp off if we want the rest of the package."

I meant, why are you dismissing the built-in amplifier.

It's probably for the best that i don't get my hands on this for now, my headphone short list is currently ranging from tbis purely off curiosity all the way up to the lcd-xc and th900. Mainly just trying to decide how much I'm willing to spend.

I got the joke.

Cool design , I can't help but think the headphone looks like it was made when the ADL H118 got in bed with the Denon D400 .

 I think the amp is a great idea. I have a schiit amp but having a mobile one that's been built and matched specifically for the headphone intrigues me. If it sounds good.

 

I should be receiving mine tomorrow :smile_phones: so all will be revealed unto me then!

Looks like I'll probably be picking up a pair of these as soon as the funds are ready. Guess it's time to sell some of the older inventory to make way for new toys.

It's amazing to see that reviews are already up. Blue has really nailed the marketing on this. I don't see reviews in the traditional audio press though, I wonder if that's by design?

Sure, the amp might be great, but:

 

1) You can only use it with the Mo-Fi

2) I've already got an amp

3) It's adding to the weight and price

 

None of these are me saying it isn't a good amp, or a good product overall; but it's why I'd prefer one without the amp.

4) it saves a lot of bulk and cables and inconvenience of an external amp

I think most of you have misunderstood the point of these.. The point is that they can be used by a regular joe with an iphone/android and for them to be able to get the full potential out of the headphones. The secondary point is that instead of carrying round an amp stuck to the back of your device, it is now integrated in the cans.

 

Remember, these are $349 headphones, not $1000+. They are aimed at the "apple" user that buy's $300ish headphones to go with their idevice.

The sort of people that say "amp? what's an amp?, does it come with my phone?" and "what, you mean I have to stick it to my phone with a rubber band???"
