    So the sound of thru the Mojo is not influenced by the source?
    Does iPhone 6 Plus + Mojo sound better than AK380 for the price?

    Out of interest, I spent the afternoon listening to a Hugo (given how impressed I am with the Mojo). I got the same hiss on the Hugo that I get on the Mojo.

    According to Rob Watt's post here that's both normal and to be expected. I know the Mojo isn't the Hugo, but it does make me think there's nothing wrong with my Mojo (Inwould expect the Hugo to be the better performer) and the real issue is just that I am able to perceive lower levels of hiss, maybe sound in general, than some others.

    That makes sense. The hiss I had was HIIIISSSSS or SSSHHHHHH, like pink noise, and audible over the music with my IEM so what you are describing is completely different. Thanks for the clarification.

    What you mean? It performs better by a large margin. The Mojo will have its sound signature no matter the transport that is feeding it. If you like that signature, you will like Mojo. If you do not, you will not. It's as simple as that. The objectively better performer is the Mojo. The subjective appreciation you have of it will depend completely on you.

    Exactly as mine was - more than the run of the mill hiss....  2 hours 20 minutes left [​IMG]

    JH Roxanne is not the most sensitive iem in the world and I don't hear any form of hiss on 2 of my Mojos. I had one earlier making a hummimg noise whenever connected to a USB charger which was replaced.

    I have an issue with my Mojo's USB ports. They are not flush and are mounted at an angle. This means the USB cables stick out at an angle as well. When I searched this thread/forum and other sites it all looks like the USB ports should be straight and flush. The audio is working wonderfully but I am worried that this will cause problems when accessories become available for the Mojo. Has anyone else had this issue? I was planning on bringing it back to get replaced but wanted to check out what everyone here had to say first?

    The port is not totally flushed but should be straight.

    Thanks, I didn't think it was right. I will make sure to get a replacement.

    So I finally got around to listening to the Mojo. I don't what kind of magic they stuffed in this little thing, but it is amazing. I'm using an iPad Mini, HD600/Cardas with iTunes and Tidal. Couple words describe the sound. Detailed, real, and effortless. Didn't matter the music genre. It all sounded good. I bought the Mojo on an impulse, all the hype. I even cancelled the order once. The Mojo just makes the music sound better. I am so pleased with it. Yes I am gushing. Almost afraid to try higher end headphones and hi-Rez music....

    The USB does not fit flush, yours is about normal. Also from the image I can tell the actual USB does go straight in. The fit is normal.

    The only "hiss" I hear is A) when the music is very quiet, and B) when that is apparently what was recorded originally. I've never been bothered by any such sound during normal playback, except a few bad recordings.

    My hypothesis is that the Mojo is so resolving that any background noise is shown, not that the Mojo itself is at fault. If you prefer a system that shows no "noise" no matter what, then move on and find something that makes you happy.

    Not being defensive, just my observation.

    Cheers and have a great weekend

    There does seem to be a small issue with the cables.
    10 Hours done - this Mojo is perfect - no hiss - no hum - crystal clear...  I listen to a lot of recordings done in the 70's and 80's - there's hiss, and there's hiss.

    Are we absolutely sure that the hiss heard isn't the blood flow through the ears vessels?

    I am a real OCD character when it comes to noise, was one of the first to declare hiss on the Hugo (much to people's derision) I also declared it on the ZX2, but with the mojo whilst I do pick up a noise when plugging my Layla's into my ears, I think that is now more to do with occlusion than anything else, as is easy to replicate without the mojo at hand...

    What are the ohm and efficiency ratings of affected IEMs?

    Oh, and going back to cable RFI / EMI, yes, that is one definite thing that does affect Layla and mojo performance, the bass adjuster module sucks up noise like a vacuum sucks up dust...
