Is the Chord Mojo a Headphone Amp?

Yes, the Chord mojo 2 can provide up to 4.2Vrms (90 mW 300ohms) or 5.2Vrms (600 mW 30ohms). It can provide enough power for most full-size headphones and in some cases two headphones simultaneously (depending on power ratings).

How Do You Use The Mojo 2?

The Mojo 2 is a portable headphone amplifier and DAC. You connect it to your source device like a phone or computer, allowing you to have much better audio quality than the phone or computer itself. Connect the Mojo 2 to your device using a compatible cable depending on you port selection. The Mojo 2 should, in most cases, be automatically recognized and redirect the audio through the Mojo 2 to your connected headphones.

What Does the Chord Mojo 2 Do?

The Mojo 2 is a portable headphone amplifier and DAC. The amplifier section provides power to your headphones, much more output and headroom than your phone or computer can output. The digital-to-analog section does just that: converts your digital data to an analog signal so that it can be outputted as an analog wave to your headphones for music listening. To learn more about how DACs work, head over to our "What is a DAC?" guide. You'll have much better sound quality using your Mojo 2 than you will direct from your phone, tablet, or computer.

What Does the Chord Poly Do?

When connected to the Chord Mojo digital to analog converter (DAC) the Poly is a “fully fledged” high-resolution wireless network music player, streamer, SD card playback device with high-resolution wireless playback controlled by your smartphone. The Poly connects seamlessly to the Mojo and Mojo 2, with precision design the two devices act like one when connected.
