Not quite your age, but have had my hearing tested and I have suffered some degree of hearing loss. All the same I personally bought blind on the strength of HiFi mag reviews but I did not join or read this thread until I had my Mojo for about 2 weeks.I have read every article in this mojo forum, skipping most apple questions and comments, since a few days after it started. I have fallen in love with the idea of the Mojo, even to the point of pre purchasing the ebay connector for my Note 3 and a small Case Logic case for the Mojo. Like many of you, I am very Anal. But I have not, as of yet, purchased the Mojo.
Some of you might ask “Why the hell not?” The answer is uncertainty about whether I can hear the differences everyone is raving about.
I am 60+ with mild tennitus in both ears. I can not hear anything over 12,000 Hz. Even though I understand that my hearing is pretty typical of my age bracket, it does make me wonder if I would be wasting my money to purchase this product.
I do have various amps and dacs with various high quality and low quality headphones. I can easily hear the differences between all.
There is no way I can audition Mojo before purchase due to my location and knowing no one locally who even owns one. Oklahoma City, OK. USA.
I am asking any current owners of the Mojo who have my age or hearing issues, to please respond with a short note as to what YOU can hear and if YOU think the purchase was worth it.
Thank you so much for your time and advise.
I have not regretted my decision in the slightest, but the jump in quality from my previous equipment was substantial IMO coming from a Fiio DAC/AMP E18. I do believe you will hear a difference
If OneTallGuy is in a position to purchase this, go for it I say a more than worthwhile investment for most and hopefully for them too
I am just shy of you in years and share age related hearing concerns when laying out money on this hobby. I have been lucky, in that with patience, I have been able to repeatedly audition most items of interest to me. In the case of the Mojo two opportunities to audition it went bad so I ended up buying blind and have not regretted it at all. Read all the good comments posted here, discount the bad, and that is what I received hardware wise. Sound wise, every time I upgrade my kit I find more tracks in my collection with flaws in the recording/mastering. Mojo added to my list... You will hear a difference, just not the same as a twenty year old will. As you can easily differentiate between your amps, DACs, and headphones you ought to be good to go Mojo as well. On a bang per dollar measure Mojo scores well. A worthwhile purchase in my opinion. Once I have done my research I have found that further time spent in deliberations would have been better spent enjoying the gear I was considering. Just lost eleven months on a WA22.
Don't you just love that (my wallet disagrees as I have just bought my 4th set of eartips in 2 days)
Yep! I had it in my basket yesterday and almost pressed buy but remembered in time that I am out of money this month! Amazon make it too easy - they even deliver same day or on a Sunday to fuel your impulse buying...
Hope you enjoy the Mojo! Let us know how you get on!
