    I'm new here, now im using WM1A and AKG N5005, i am wondering chord mojo can potentially drive the N5005? Does anyone have experience about this pair?

    You are only the second poster to ask about the N5005, and the first received no answer, so you may be unlucky.
    They look to be efficient iems, so I would expect the Mojo to be ok power wise.
    The sound signature is something you are best deciding about via a demo.

    Ya, before asking i had searched in this thread and found that there is no answer for last poster, so i have to ask it again. WM1A has output power 240mW@16ohm per channel and this mojo has more than 700mW @8hm. I interpolate it approximately to 400mW @16ohm. Seem like more powerful but reality i do not know wether it efficiently drive or somehow as on 1A

    I know that the AKG N40 are mind-boggling on the Mojo.


    Was actually going to mention in this thread, AKG N40 are currently £150 on Richer Sounds in the UK. That's an unadulterated bargain. (Normally £350 RRP.)

    I have posted the info here for you https://www.head-fi.org/threads/europe-deals-thread.530008/page-128#post-14947269
    They are even cheaper on amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/AKG-High-Resolution-Headphone-Customisable-Sound-Black-Silver/dp/B01LY8SCLH
    The K701 is selling at a big discount too, maybe new models are on the horizon https://www.son-video.com/article/casques-hi-fi/akg/k701

    If you do the math, 23 clicks below the 3v Line Out setting on the Mojo would give 120 db (Rock Concert) volume from the AKG N5005.

    Interesting but I'm no longer saving for a TT2 I got impatient, I'm very happy with the HD660/800S with the violectric, it's so good in fact that it doesn't matter what dac is in the chain the headphones still sound exceptional.

    But i want to get loud, i want the sound to be clear and transperency. At that vol does it make N5005 fully driven?

    Probably not to the levels you are looking for, but a lot more volume than I would listen to.

    So I've got a new Mojo from the old batch (without QR codes) that had, according to the original owner, 3 hours on it.

    And I must say, this Mojo is definitely not as smooth as my older Mojo. I've read through this thread about burn-in for the Mojo, and several users commented that their unit smoothed out after +-24 hours.

    The previous Mojo I owned, already had a good amount of play time when I bought it last year.

    I'm gonna naturally play the Mojo for more hours, and hear how it'll smooth out, if they were right.

    Do you realize how loud 120dB is? You’ll have hearing damage very quickly if listening that loud for any period of time.

    Yes, Mojo has far more than enough power (Voltage and Current) to to ‘fully drive’ the AKG N5005 IEMs (116dB SPL/V@1kHz, 18 Ohms), from an electrical standpoint... it’s not even worth a second guess from a power perspective. However, it’s recommended that you demo the pairing if you can. Don’t confuse personal preference and synergy with just power output.

    Oh, mis-writing i mean i dont want to get loud. I just wonder there is anyone that tried this pair and how their music experince is.

    Ah, understood and thanks for clarifying. Hopefully someone who owns the N5005 can give you some feedback on the pairing. :)

    Would something bad happen to the Mojo if it was being played at 100% volume for a few seconds? I got a new Mojo the other day, and when I plugged it in the volume was at 100%, and I forgot to turn it down. So it played at 100% for a few seconds.
