    The "/whatever" part covered that possibility. [​IMG]
    (I was referring to the general color anyway.)

    Haha you are right!

    my screws are shiny, and my Mojo is number 23,xxx

    So not too eye watering after all.
    Have you tried the mojo and stax combo? 
    If so, what were your impressions.
  7. miketlse
    You only receive pure silver screws if you pay extra for an after market solution - just like headphone cables. [​IMG]

    The only STAX headphones I have owned are the SR-207 and SR-30. At that time I was using the onboard DAC of my laptop...and even then they had a magical transparency I have never heard elsewhere. Obviously they would have sounded even better with the Mojo.
    Headphones I have used with the Mojo so far:
    AudioQuest NightHawk
    JVC HA-SZ2000
    Koss KTXPRO1
    Sennheiser HD 800

    ​As SP Wild mentioned above, this is all very subjective.

    ​I had the K10U and Fitear 334U for awhile and was able to compare them directly with my 846 (which had SpinFits and Headphone Lounge Reference Silver Liitz cable -- which took the 846 to another level,)
    Using the Mojo, to me the 846 was preferable overall. The K10 and Fitear 334 were superior in some ways to the 846 but inferior in others. The K10 and 334 had more detail, were faster and cleaner and had more treble (too much imo, which I did not like.) Bass was very good, especially in the K10, which I felt also had a bit more of everything versus the Fitear. But to me the Shure had a richer, warmer, more musical, more powerful dynamic sound that was more enjoyable and more "fun", especially with contemporary music. Even with jazz and classical the richness and bass of the 846 provided a firmer more gounded "foundation" to the music that added substance and gravitas. The others sounded thinner by comparison, especially the 334.  Yet, the Shure still had plenty of detail. In terms of personal usage, I also tried all three outdoors in a small park near a busy avenue in Manhattan where there was lots of car noise. The Shure was the only one to carry through the noise adequately because of the above characteristics. If I could find an IEM with the characteristics of the Shure coupled with some additional detail as with the K10, that would be ideal for me. Until then the SE846 is the one for me.

    Indeed subjective. To my ears, the 846 were the only IEMs I've tried that I felt were not worth their price. The subbass is outstanding, but the mid-bass leaves a lot to be desired. The treble is rolled off without an ounce of extension, the mids are lovely, but a little pushed. The soundstage is worse than my $75 wireless gym earbuds I use working out with...
    But a fun part of this hobby *is* how subjective this all is. They are the king of isolation, however, which is very nice and the build quality is outstanding.

    First time I am hearing anyone describing the 334 as bright and thin.
  12. miketlse
    Thanks for that - i shall keep those stax in mind.
    In the very short term, my thoughts are occupied with how long can i resist before ordering a Hugo 2. [​IMG]

    I have to LOL at this for my own annoyance ;0
    iOS 10.3 Beta 1 has broken the CCK to Mojo and so I cannot listen to music via Mojo now. OOPS! 
    Yes that is correct, the genuine CCK does not work. Well thats a new one on me!
    ahhh FFS. Back to listening to my iPhone direct then.

    Maybe you shouldn't upgrade to Beta software if you want stability and reliability
  15. RPB65

    If I wanted reliability and stability I would be married and drive German cars........hang on, I am and I drive an S3. pmsl
    Beta software is good fun! :wink:
    Oh well I have had to reach for my ZX2 again. Ain't used this is a while.
