  1. Hi. As you may rem I have the Nexus 5 and a usb dac playing headphones though a Usb Audio pro.
    My question is. In your opinion what will be the best sounding over ear headphones I could buy with the kit I use?
    Budget / mid / expensive choices if you know.
    I already have a few ‘in-ear’ headphones of cheap to high quality which I am happy with.


  2. Hi Gavin, I enjoyed the review. I’m set to buy the DX80, but curious to know the following, simply because I do not know.. If the DX80 has built in DAC does it really need the Mojo?. Based on the memerising advance in sound I can assume a definite yes. So my question,
    Im aware high quality earphones drive the sound, should I be spending more on the h.phones and Mojo and get a cheaper DAP like the Hifiman HM700?


    1. The Chord Mojo DAC is better than that in the DX80. In theory any digital source into the Chord Mojo will produce the same sound, as its the DAC from the Chord Mojo doing all the heavy lifting. Personally I liked the sound from the DX80 going optical out into the Chord Mojo. Perhaps it was a cleaner signal into the Mojo. As to headphones, they do make a difference. but keep a look at for how efficient they are. The easier to drive, the more you might get from them without spending loads on powerful amps. Also all our ears are different so we hear things differently. Good luck. Gavin


  3. Gavin, Could you possibly compare the sound quality of the Oppo HA-1 to the Chord Mojo. I intent to use one or the other with my main system, connected to my Emotiva XMC-1 processor mainly for DSD playback. Thanks.


    1. Totally different beasts. One fits in your pocket and one sits on a piece of furniture and is substantial in size. In a main system I would use the HA-1. Plus there is a huge price gap between them. Did you mean the HA-2??
