    What IEM are u using with the Mojo?

    Lohb, if it's any help, I have noticed that if you leave some time between usage, say a day or two, it has an effect on the total play time. I lose some where between an hour to 3 or 4 hours of play time if there's a gap from when I use the device. An example below:
    Day 1: Full charge. Play 2 hours
    Day 2: Play 2 hours
    Day 3: Rest
    Day 4: Play 2 hours. Red light appears
    Day 1: Full charge. Play an hour
    Day 2: Rest (weekend)
    Day 3: Rest (weekend)
    Day 4: Play 2 hours
    Day 5: Play 2 hours. Sudden cut off due to flat battery
    The scenarios above are an approximate of my own experiences. If it's used continuously on a daily basis, I get the approximate 8 hours of play time.
    YMMV but I do believe that the discharge rate varies and somehow increases after the first use. This is only my impression. Thank you for reading.

    I've primarily used my Sony Xb90ex, which is my current favorite. Been listening to my Fostex Th900 right now, for the last hour or so.

     Warrior, what you're experiencing with the details isn't weird at all. This is all due to the way Mojo extracts and presents the details in the recordings. The details have always been there but because the other DACs don't present it seamlessly during playback, that's when they are lost in the background or overshadowed by the vocals or other instruments.
    I have experienced the exact same moments with songs that I thought I was fairly familiar with and then "huh?"or "eh?" or "wow!". I then swap back my standard player sans Mojo and the details are there, just quieter or muddy or drowned in the background. You're also listening for those details in the other playback whilst you can just sit back and enjoy the music from the Mojo. That there is the key differentiator to me. The Mojo allows me grasp all these details and yet presents it in such a way that it's effortless and I'm more concerned with enjoying the music rather than just listening.
    Of course not everyone may share my opinion and which is why YMMV :)

    This is what I was alluding to early in the the thread with that Norah Jones track. I'd hear something that just sounded clear and natural in the recording I haven't noticed before and I'd think "that's nice, don't recall that". I'd go and A/B with other gear and sure enough I could hear the same thing, but more like "is it there? Oh, yeah, there it is". It's the effortlessness with Mojo that I really appreciate.

    See what's weird for me is that they sound so damn close, but how did I miss them before mojo? I just think the little black box is different. I can't explain it yet.

    Rob has some extremely informative posts on the 'why'.
  8. warrior1975
    Relic Yes, I know I've read his responses many times. Just different hearing it for yourself. Plus, I really didn't think I'd hear them with the same detail on my phone, they just seem to, I don't know how to explain it, but are more obvious. After I realize they are there I realize on my phone, without the Mojo how obvious that it was.

    It's really mind boggling. I'm going to attempt to stop abing for now and enjoy the Mojo for a few days, then switch back like others have suggested.

    That first sentence, I didn't mean it harshly, if it came off like that, I apologize.

    I finally ordered my Chord Mojo and should get the delivery by Wednesday next week. I am looking forward to using them with my Brand New Hd-800 for now.

    No worries warrior1975, I also find it uncanny. I've gone back to other gear and also hear the same details, but there's the addictive nature of the Mojo that keeps calling me. I especially love reading posts where others have demo'd the Mojo and can't wait to get their Mojo fix again.

    Yes, quite the unique experience. It's very, very nice though.

    In fact I agree with you. Ever since I ordered my mojo, a friend of wants to review it first and then order it.

    Got my USB B to USB B OTG Cable today for my Samsung S4.
    I went ahead and splurged and paid the $7.99 for UAPP, it seems swell.
    I wish it was more like $7.29 but what the heck.
    I bought this cable: 
    It seems a little stout, but sadly it was almost $6.00. Such an expensive hobby.
    The S4 Mojo combo sounds swell.
    I can't say if it sounds better than the X5 or X3 driving the Mojo. But it sounds fine.

  15. lukeap69
    What's not good with it? I have used the same cable since my FiiO E18 time.
