    Chord Mojo issue solutions thread.

    In my opinion this unit shouldn't be described as portable, mine wasn't even used portably and I just own a paper weight now. **** this company.

    Get out before it's too late imo. You could end up like the prior post or worse, me (out of warranty).

    Chord Mojo issue solutions thread.

    How much did this end up costing you? If it's too pricy for me I'm considering selling mine for a discounted price to someone who's able to fix it themselves or has better connections than I do. I have those exact problems except my USB slot is also in a similar state.

    Opus Codec

    I am too, but I don't feel that there's a reason to go above 192 on opus in my opinion. I haven't seen any tests for 224 or 256 for it though. I think it's commonly agreed upon that those bitrates are way too high.

    FLAC vs. 320 Mp3

    True, but even that thread itself was last responded to more than a year ago. Maybe it's the compatibility issues still. Considering Android having a good share of the smartphone market today I would have thought that opus would have more of a lane by 2019 is all.

    I'm sorry, the 3.5mm headphone jacks on the Mojo, edited initial post for the sake of accuracy.

    Yes the battery is fine, the problem is the physical 3.5mm jacks .

    I'm satisfied with the product aside from the hiccups but the business tactics are ridiculous.

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    Apparently it's past it's warrenty and the repair is per hour with a base fee of 1 hour (which it's $100 an hour) and parts. This has been a repetitive problem I've had with the Mojo since after the first half year of having it and something that's been sent to them for repairs before. Each...

    Opus Codec

    I use the free encoder pack for foobar 2000, simple setup for me.

    Opus Codec

    Right I hear you on the re-encoding, my lossless to opus conversion is taking 3 days, not the most exciting process haha. Some say what I have now is overkill but hopefully it's also foresighted assurance as the future draws closer. I used AAC 256 for that purpose as well and it definitely...

    Opus Codec

    I would probably still keep using AAC for my portable but since I have an Android phone which has built in compatibility for opus, I figured I'd try it and save some space. Still keeping the AAC files though because of the overall compatibility in case I have something that doesn't support opus...

    Opus Codec

    Wow I see. If opus is completely transparent somewhere between 128 and 192 (killer samples included) then that says a lot about the codec. I'm judging based off this by the way, http://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=Opus

    Opus Codec

    Ah very interesting. Statistically speaking, I wonder how many tracks in existence (or to narrow it down, modern day releases) contain that content.

    Opus Codec

    I think it may have been this one, not entirely sure if I recall, forgive me. https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,114656.25.html This was something else I found. https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,112253.0.html Yeah it's lack of support initially deterred me, but I decided finally I...

    Opus Codec

    No I didn't see any posted examples, just the mentioning of being able to ABX 144-160 kbps on a killer sample. Although they did admit that was just them being fussy and that the music itself is more than likely okay at that level.

    Opus Codec

    Thank you guys, I had a feeling that it may have been overkill, it was confusing to follow because some people were talking about using 224 or 192 and at that point it seems redundant to abandon AAC. They mentioned killer samples being transparent at 160 to 192, not too sure what those samples...

    Thanks for the impressions guys, might just stick to the Mojo instead of looking at at ifi Micro.

    Anyone use ifi micro idsd black label with these headphones?

    What's an example of a "good DAC"?

    I'm interested in finding the answer to this too. I wonder if it's something else inside the unit that makes performance "better" to ones ears like an amp, filter, processor or the "timing" that they rave about. I have absolutely no knowledge on this to even provide an educated guess, I'm at the...

    I've been looking for answers to that comparison for a while now and can't find much either. Asked in here a few times too..

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Yeah that's the consensus I've gathered. And thanks for the info on Hugo 2, couldn't find anything on that. By how far of a margin would you say the Hugo 2's performance exceeds WM1A? So far that battery life in one package is a damn great deal. Yeah I hear that a lot about smartphones. I...
