    We need to start using Apple LUCA to connect iPhones from now on. :D

    Actually I worded my post wrongly. What I meant to ask if it's really needed.

    10 hours seems like a long time to wait to use a new toy I just bought!

    Plug it in and watch the white LED. When it's off, turn the Mojo on and start blasting beats into your headphones.

    I found it worth it to leave it running overnight during the first charge. It sounded a bit congested out of the box, but that disappeared afterwards.

    Going to take the plunge and order one. Had a quick question about cables. I currently have a Schiit Lyr +Fiio E17 DAC. I have all this running to my PC, and my HD-800 directly connects to the AMP (with the big Jack). I assume I need a cable adapter, since my HD800 would plug into the smaller jack slot on the Chord Mojo. 
    I actually have a Sennhsier adapter, so got that covered. This might sound stupid, but I was wondering if going from the HD800s big jack to the smaller jack through the adapter, if that would be a serious loss in quality. I don't know much about cables tbh, as I've just stuck to the original that comes with my Headphones in the box. 
    I'm just going to plug my HD800 directly into the Chord Mojo, and then have my the Chord Mojo go to my PC.
    Or is that a really bad idea?

    No loss in sound quality. I've only owned one adaptor (a cheap rip-off of a major commercial brand purchased in the early '90s) that I thought had any effect on the sound.  I agree with your plan. For not being a multi-thousand-dollar statement amp, the Mojo does a nice job with the HD800s IMO.

    Curious, do you really think the congestion had anything to do with the charge level, or other 'burn-in'?
  8. Currawong Contributor

    Who knows. I've had a lot of gear that, one way or another, responded to the heat of running, even if music wasn't playing. The Hugo sounded better after 10 minutes of warm-up. Maybe the batteries need some initial use to start working effectively? This is all speculation, as Rob reckons the Mojo doesn't require "burn-in".

    I'm using mojo as a DAC for my stax 323s amp. It looks like this: Mojo - 3.5 to RCA adapter - RCA cable - 323 amp.
    To activate maximum output power, press and hold both volume buttons while turning Mojo on.

    To avoid confusion, this does not activate maximum power, but a fixed 3V

    Thanks for the correction :D .

    I use a Sennheiser 6.3mm to 3.5mm adapter for my Ether-Cs, this one: http://headphonespares.sennheiser.co.uk/hifi-tv-headphones/hd-558/jack-adapter-635mm-to-35mm-094029.html
    I have also tried: http://headphonespares.sennheiser.co.uk/hifi-tv-headphones/hd-650/jack-adapter-cable---635mm-to-35mm.html
    I personally found that the second one had a slight negative effect on the sound quality, so I use the first one.

    Has anyone experienced the Mojo keeping its 3V setting even after turning off and on again? It happened twice to me. Fist time, it almost killed my Fitear 335. Luckily I noticed the huge hiss at the beginning of the song and unplugged it quickly. Second time, I saw the volume balls was illuminated in violet and had to decrease the volume (usually they are pink-ish).

    The Mojo remembers what volume you had last and does not reset when you turn it off.
