    Hi all,

    I am currently a chord mojo user which I pair with a range of headphones depending where I am or what I am listening to. At the low end there are my sound magic on ears and on high end are my beyerdynamic Xelento remote.

    I mostly use the mojo at my laptop or iMac. In the beginning, I also used it with my Google Pixel phone.

    Now that headphone jacks are an artefact of the past inside mobile phones, I am considering 3 scenarios for listening to music (CD quality upwards)
    1. Pair my new pixel 2 XL with mojo via USB-C always when listening to high quality music files
    2. Buy a wireless add on for the Xelento
    3. Buy an astell & Kern KANN an use that with my Xelento for listening to music

    For these scenarios I would like to hear your experiences regarding my following questions:
    1. How is the SQ of the mojo compared to KANN?
    2. Does it make sense to combine a KANN with a mojo or is the KANN amp "great" enough?
    3. How is the KANN from a portability perspective? Do you guys always carry it around together with you mobile phones?
    4. In general: who is the KANN for? Is there a typical profile for someone who would need a KANN or portable music player?
