    for earwego a battery powered quiet ssd laptop will give isolation from the mains something the others can't.

    They sound “thin” to me.

    We all hear things differently, so that's OK, but I found Rob's recent post regarding the distortions and harmonics other sources and amplifiers can add to the sound, perhaps you prefer these artifacts.
  6. RiseFall123
    I also spoke with him about it.

    Yes, in fact, I will try some eq before to afford an amplifier.

    I'm new to this thread so I apologize if this has been asked already. My mojo make aa horrible whining/screeching noise anytime I hit the lock or unlock button on my car keys. Even tho they'e i didifferent pockets, mojo left side pants pocket, keys right hand jacket pocket. Only way I can get it to stop is to turn mojo off and back on. Any advice on how to prevent this or if this is possibly an issue to return it over?

    I am hardly surprised that if you use the radio transmitter in your key fob, just 1 foot from your Mojo, that the Mojo suffers from RFI.

    Well, I'm using it with poly for "mobile" use. I don't see much of a way around it. It hasn't always done this either. It just seems to be a persistent issue today all of a sudden.

    Also, it goes nonstop til I shut the mojo off.

    What is the best headphone for mojo in your opinion? Got t1p II, t5p II, EL8, nighthawk, momentum 2, msr7, shure 1540, ath 50. No iems please. :)

    The best headphone.

    Seriously, whatever you like, Mojo will have the power and (low) output impedance to match almost everything.

    In all honesty you have listed many of the headphones that have been preferred over the past two and a half years (ok you have not mentioned the oppo PM3 which was popular as the cheapest member of the PM range, but not a big deal).
    My suggestion would be to not try and identify the best headphone to cover all eventualities, but try and break it down into distinct use cases, eg:
    1. open backed headphones. I have the grado se80 plus sennhiser hd598se. During the past few months I have tried the sennheiser again, and enjoyed them, so would be interested to hear the focal clear etc - but not urgent. (some people swear by the Utopia, but that is too dear at the present).
    2. closed back headphones for when i don't want to disturb my sleeping cat - I have the beyer 51i which does a good job, but some of your HP may already be better
    3. iems - you exclude iems - I have an old pair of shure se100 which do a job for listening to work elearning videos, but are not hifi. I also use AK T8ie for music listening, and they set a high baseline. It would be interesting to find a pair of iems that deliver 95% of the T8 performance, for about $200, but realise that this may be a non-urgent long-term task.
    Hope this gives you a few ideas to explore.
