    MY TAKE:

    The Chord Mojo is a wonder! Tiny and ultra portable, Mojo will amaze you with the amount of performance Chord has packed into such a miniscule device. It will drive most any headphone and the DAC is suprisingly good for a portable device. - Galen Carol

     

    Mojo is a portable headphone amplifier and DAC that was designed for people who love music and want to get the very best sound possible from their headphones. Whether you use a smartphone, portable music player or computer, Mojo will dramatically improve your sound.

    Unlike its competitors, Mojo doesn’t use an ordinary off-the-shelf DAC chip. Instead, Mojo uses Chord’s own proprietary FPGA DAC. This means Mojo offers significantly higher resolution and a stunning sonic clarity that other products simply cannot match - even at twenty times the price!

    Also inside Mojo is a massively powerful headphone amplifier that will bring your music to life whether you use in-ear buds or large studio cans. Simply connect Mojo to your smartphone or computer, plug your headphones into Mojo, and press Play. Now you will experience crystal clear audio the way you would hear it in the recording studio.

    Mojo will play any audio file you can find, even 768kHz/32-bit and quad DSD 256. Thanks to the very latest battery technology, Mojo is able to charge to full in only four hours and will give eight to ten hours of continuous use.


    CUSTOMER COMMENTS: "Hi Galen, In this industry we often here the statment “Game Changer”.  Well this is a real one!" - G.C.


    REVIEWS:

    “The Chord Mojo is one of the best portable devices I have heard at any price. At $600, you get an almost perfect portable amp/DAC that has none of the shortcomings typically found in its competitors. The DAC is amongst the best I’ve heard under $1500 and the amplifier is able to drive headphones better than most $600 headphone amplifiers will. Keep them coming Chord!  This one is a winner and a keeper. Highly recommended!” – Headphone.Guru


    "In summary, the Chord Mojo is a marvel both of sound-quality-first design and cost-effective engineering. It is one of the finest and most capable portable amp/DACs I have yet heard regardless of price, and one whose value for money quotient is clear off the charts. If you have always craved a top-tier product of this type, but thought you could never afford one, the Mojo is now officially your ticket to ride." - HiFi+


    HiFi+ Portable Desktop Headphone Amp/DAC of the Year 2016 - "How could we not include the new Mojo from Chord Electronics? Launched at the end of last year to some fairly significant – but justifiable – hype, the Mojo is the battery-powered ‘son of Hugo’ DAC that delivers extremely high performance, custom DAC quality sound up to the highest PCM and DSD grades, in a package designed for simplicity, coolness, and sound quality. Capable of driving surprisingly punishing headphones on the move, the little £399 portable headphone amp/DAC delivers the sort of hyper-detailed, yet approachable and downright fun performance the best super high-end players were unable to achieve just a few years ago. And yet, it does so in a package designed to be as small as a packet of cigarettes. The only problem is getting one: Chord is making Mojos as fast as it can and still struggles to prevent a long waiting list – such is the price of success!"
