    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    I bet the next Mojo iteration (Mojo 2.5 or Mojo 3) will integrate the Poly functions, as the current setup is expensive, inconvenient, and less power efficient. With USB-C, firmware updates and a Bluetooth 5.x radio, "Mojo x" would be relatively future-proof for the next few years.

    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    Were there any substantial changes during the Mojo's production run? I'm wondering if there is any benefit to being an early adopter. The HFW summary looks promising.

    Schiit Fulla 2 Impressions Thread

    Not unless the CD player has a USB output (extremely unlikely). Most newer portable DVD and Blu-ray players don't have USB outputs either, just inputs for USB storage, like flash drives. I hooked up my portable CD player to a Chord Mojo using its mini Toslink optical output and it sounded...

    Klipsch R6i II

    Klipsch finally updated their website with product information: http://www.klipsch.ca/products/r6i-ii-headphones They don't mention any specific improvements over the previous version. I think I chose right with the Sennheiser HD1. They're more expensive than the Klipsch R6i II, but I don't...

    Schiit Fulla 2 Impressions Thread

    I agree. I've run HDCDs and CDs as well as ALAC files into the Fulla 2 with my Grado HP-2 headphones and the Fulla doesn't quite get to the level of my custom headphone amplifier for soundstage, detail, and musical fluency... it's impressive for the money, but it can't beat $1,000+ hardware.

    Reply to review by 'HiWire' on item 'beyerdynamic Amiron home'

    Great review. I'm looking at getting the Amiron – I am curious whether they scale as well as some of the classic headphones with improvements in sources,amplifiers, and cables.

    Schiit Fulla 2 Impressions Thread

    Yesterday, I tested the DAC on a speaker system with compact discs, AAC files, and FLAC files. No problems whatsoever... the DAC may be better than the headphone amp. On the other hand, the Fulla 2 definitely sounds better than my Panasonic SL-CT820 portable CD player playing ALAC files on the...

    Klipsch R6i vs Sennheiser Momentum (M2 IEI)

    I've been listening to my new Sennheiser Momentum in-ears for a few months and I agree with gunmetalTrevan. The Sennheisers are the opposite of harsh – my old Klipsch S4i were closer to sounding like that. Momentums have a balanced, smooth sound that is more enjoyable overall with increased...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    I have to agree. The Amiron sounded totally different (better) coming out of the Chord Mojo instead of directly from my CD player's headphone jack.   I'd love to hear it coming out of the Chord Hugo 2 to see if it can go even farther.

    Review by 'HiWire' on item 'Sennheiser Momentum In Ear (iOS version) - Black Chrome'

    I bought these when my Klipsch S4i started dying (volume is cutting out on the left channel). Fair enough – 7+ years is a long service life for a pair of inexpensive earbuds. My first priority was compatibility with my 3G iPod Shuffle, which needs a 3-button remote to operate. The second was to...

    panasonic SL-CT820 vs sony D-NE20

    On the weekend, I took the SL-CT820 to a local headphone store. We connected the HiFiMan HE400i and the Final Audio Design Sonorous III headphones, which it played without a problem. Neither sounded particularly good out of the Panasonic, but the HiFiMan was better.   Using the external...

    Any updates on the HD 599 impressions? I came close to picking up a pair of HD 598 when Amazon.ca dropped the price to $149.99.
