    Dragonfly COBALT vs.............Discussions

    Been through 5 so far trying to get a wiggle-less one. The current one still has a slight wiggle on the headphone jack. Kept it. I just use mine at home. Treat it gently, so it's not an issue for me.

    Dragonfly COBALT vs.............Discussions

    I don't know what happened in the case of the DFC that fell apart. All I can say is if I ever needed another DFC, I'd buy it in a flash. I'm addicted to its clarity, relaxed, and noise free sound. It gets better the more it ages (just like me). :)

    I see so many reviews of the Mojo that complain about its reliability, sometimes inconsistent sound quality, and lack of customer service.

    Between the two of them (DFR and DFC), I would buy all three. I hope that this ends the confusion about which one to buy. :)

    660s sound great with the Cobalt. :)

    Ouch! Sorry to hear that.

    It's gotta be the price unfortunately. People can return it if they don't like it, but the price for some people blows their socks off. Thousand dollar headphones do the same thing for me. :)

    It's a keeper alright. Happy to have it.

    I spoke too soon. This DFC is just great sounding. The Etymotics sound really, really fine.

    Will definitely have to give it another try then. You just encouraged me. Thanks. :)

    Interesting. Doesn't square with my personal experience with the Cobalt. Maybe a placebo effect, but placebos work, and I'm enjoying my Cobalt. Then you can say that I'm saying I'm enjoying it to justify my purchase and opinion. Don't have an explanation other than I like the sound. :)

    They told me it wasn't an issue.

    Better sound than my iFi Nano BL and xDSD. Hard to believe, but true for me. Sad in a way. These were my trusty devices, but now I go straight for the DFC.

    Dragonfly COBALT vs.............Discussions

    The DFC and the HD6XX make remarkably good music together. I'm really quite surprised with how well the DFC shines compared to my xDSD and Nano BL. Almost disappointed at how well it sounds in comparison to these two. Sounds funny, but true. It's so smooth, quiet, and relaxed sounding. Can't say...

    Audiquest says the wiggle is okay. If it rattles inside, then that's another story.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Dragonfly COBALT vs.............Discussions

    I was really never super impressed with my HD6XX despite all the hype. I put it aside a lot. I tried it with the DFR, the Nano BL, and the xDSD, and it still didn't do the trick for me. I thought I wasted some fairly big bucks, and focused more on my DT990 Pro and Grados. Along comes the DFC and...

    Wiggle-less DFCs are likely rare birds (or flies in this case). I went through 3 and they all did a little jig. The first one rattled too (that was not good). Perhaps it is a symbol of their real musicality. I kept my second one because I started to burn it in. I have to say that the DFC does...

    It's the USB plug which you probably already know by now. Never mind. :)

    Dragonfly COBALT vs.............Discussions

    I'm really beginning to appreciate the smoothness and relaxed quality of sound coming out of the DFC. The clarity of the sound and separation are really quite dramatic. Just give me one that's wiggle free, and I'll be very happy with it. :)

    I was told through Amazon that an Audioquest rep said the wiggling was a defect. That's what I was told. All I know is that my DFR and DFB are built rock solid with no movement of the usb connector.

    Dragonfly COBALT vs.............Discussions

    All I know is that I have a Red and a Black that are completely solid with no wiggling. Someone else on this board reported that their Cobalt was completely solid as well with no movement or rattling. Seems like a defect in manufacture to me. So I returned mine. Waiting for a new one.

    Dragonfly COBALT vs.............Discussions

    Definitely not cool QC. I'm waiting for my second one too from a different dealer. I'm not ecstatic over the DFC so far, but I'm curious enough to give it a fair shot. I have the DFR as well as an ifi Nano BL and xDSD. For $300, the DFC is going to have to prove itself mightily to me for me to...
