is their a new mojo to be released soon
There are dealer rumours, but no confirmed facts.
Chord have posted about the release of a mobile product this year, but whether this means mojo2, a streamer, or a dap, or something else, is unknown.
Sorry for the uncertainty, but given we are halfway through the year, the window of opportunity is reducing.

I do love my mojo and it's definitely not piling dust (I'm using it as I'm writing this) but I believe that chord should refresh the unit... it is a bang for your buck in audio quality though it lacks in some areas that would be good to see an upgrade.

To say some, the USB picks a lot of noise from time to time, the unit runs really hot, the battery should definitely be upgraded in some way and those are just the issues that I've found. Chord has produced a timeless piece in terms of performance but the reliebility... Well, that's another story. Still, and this might come controversial, price vs performance there is not a lot to complain about.

Still enjoying mine.

Not sure how it's been "left in the dust".

Well, just look at any modern similarly priced dap, build functionality, and dare I say it sound quality. I was fortunate enough to recently obtain a Fiio M11 plus ltd. I have also owned a Mojo so I do know what I am talking about. Comparing the two is like comparing a sixties VW Beetle to a modern Porsche 911. And yes, in addition to better build, functionality that is on another planet and far superior sound quality the M11 barely costs more than a Mojo.
You can still happily enjoy the Mojo you have, but should you buy a new one? I have to say that to me that idea is ridiculous.

The m11 looks like a good all in one player, but maybe the mojo is aimed at a slightly different market, “audiophiles”...
if the m11 sounded better then mojo, had a built in transport, then obviously it would be better...
I know I found out about the mojo as all the reviewers were saying it sounded the best (vs having the largest feature set).
I haven’t heard any other ones really, so what do I know.
But I suppose, I’ve had so many good times listening to mojo in work, I can’t complain, it totally slays the music coming out of a phone, and I can compare it to my tt2, and obviously tt2 is in another league, but mojo still hits the spot.

and far superior sound quality.
Is the SQ difference between the m11 and Mojo really that dramatic?
At this level i usually use words like splitting hairs, slight or noticeable to describe differences but not huge, massive, night & day or the second coming of Christ.

Is it perhaps brighter, thus giving the impression of more details and treble extension vs the Mojo?

I found people who say certain gear sounds “better” than another, tend to prefer distortion that makes the music sound brighter and thus with the characteristics I’ve described above.

I doubt mojo is a Beatle, while Fiio is a Porsche !
compared to my phone's DAC , mojo is not a Porsche by a long shot.
these days to get better SQ from an average DAC , you need to spend a lot, and even then, it is not night and day.
