The AQ Nighthawk would have been a better match with the Mojo than the HD650.
Page #1 of this thread should load faster, now, as there was an embedded youtube video from another member, near the bottom of the page, which I hadn't even noticed, this past 13 months. The Huddler platform seems to insist on pre-buffering embedded videos, hence the lag when loading pages with embedded video, on head-fi.
Totally innocent on his part, but just overlooked all this time, and he's been gracious enough to edit his post on my/your/everyone's behalf (thankyou)
Thanks for the effort. Why are u not on Chord's payroll still? :rofl:
Agreed, HD650 dun sounds good on Mojo too dark sounding and I really hate the infamous HF650's veil.
Nighthawk sounds so much better, faster, more transparent sound and more upper energy.
And as of right now, they are $350.
Thanks, guys. I should have done much better research, got a bit excited about the prospect of recapturing the BH Crack glory in a cigarette packet. I'll look into the Nighthawks.
The Mojo drives them with ease. Once fully burned in, it offers a highly musical sound that for many people will be their end game solution. I'm personally building my system around them and am currently upgrading my source and chain to fully extract what Mojo is capable of.
It's by mutual agreement - I'm not trying to be a martyr, and Chord aren't being tight.
It just keeps things much simpler, and you can be sure that I'm not shilling for anyone on head-fi.
Occasionally, I feel it important to state it openly, purely so that folks know that Chord are not directly responsible for this thread and so that folks know that I am not speaking in an official capacity.
As I remarked, yesterday:
@ ray-dude got closest to understanding.
I am convinced that one cannot do anything positive or negative in this universe without it being reflected back into one's experience, in some way, at some point in time (call it 'Karma' ,if you will). Money is far from the only way balance is maintained, in this universe, though surprisingly few people seem to realise this, in this materialistic day & age! LOL
BTW the NightHawk are only $328 @ Crutchfield
Be quick because the promotion is ending this week.
Sadly I'm in the UK, where the cheapest I can find is £399
Thanks for the tip, though.
I had a look at amazon.de and it works out about £360. You'd lose the gain if you had to ship it back I guess. Up front it's a saving.
I use mojo with beyerdynamic dt880 600ohm. this Beyer being a monitoring headphone, matches extremely well with mojo. some say this Beyer to be a bit bright but not at all with mojo. I listen to all kind of music including jazz, Bollywood, some western classical, 80s disco , piano and violin . the combo sounds great with all. I need to barely cross into dark blue range of mojo's volume.
Even if you had to return it to say Amazon.de, shipping to Germany is like $33 for a USPS small flat rate box
So here's a question (and I did try to find the answer in post #3). At my desk I use Jriver, going into a Sony UDA-1, and into a pair of Audioengine2 speakers. Would I gain anything by inserting the Mojo into this chain somehow?
