Doesn't seem to be universally agreed that Hugo is better, at least grim my reading (haven't compared them myself).Currawang, in his Mojo review, send to feel they're equal, or very close to it (but voiced differently).
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Hugo is better and I use them both daily with a variety of upper tier headphones. Different league completely. That said, the size difference makes the Mojo just so much easier portable and the cost variation makes it less of a risk to carry around and inadvertently damage.
Most sound quality justification comes from Mojo owners, there is a giant killer attitude that is on head-fi that is that way, especially with fast moving threads and outlandish excitement. I have seen it many times throughout the years. It's okay, it's fun, it's part of the whole experience of head-fi but having one at home or even listening at a meet helps. It's easy to get excited, I know. I've spent tens of thousands out hear on gear and I can say that the Chord Hugo is probably my best buy. I can also say that due to convenience I use the Mojo more at this time.
