Chord Electronics has added several new features to the successor of the "Mojo" mobile headphone amplifier: The new Mojo 2 now carries a fourth button that can be used to access and control a new menu. In addition to settings for button brightness, a four-band equalizer can also be used therein for tone control and adjustments. In addition, the "Crossfeed" feature is also new, which is supposed to simulate listening via speakers and can be activated in three different levels.
The sound of the new Mojo 2 is also said to have been improved by a new FPGA, aiming to ensure a higher resolution as well as more power, among other things. In addition, there are the "Watts Transient Aligned" (WTA) filters, which are said to filter the digital signals and thus offer high precision in playback. For these, 40 DSPs are at work, which are also supposed to further improve the sound.
In addition to the old Mojo's inputs in Micro-USB, coaxial S/PDIF and TOSLINK, the Mojo 2 now also has a USB-C input for connecting even more devices. Just like its predecessor, it offers two headphone outputs. In addition, the Mojo 2's battery is said to have both a larger capacity and longer lifespan. The Mojo 2 is also supposed to work perfectly together with Chord's "Poly" streamer – which can be added to the side of the device –, making the combination everything needed for music playback.
The Chord Mojo 2 headphone amplifier is available now*, and comes with an MSRP of around €600*. The matching, optional streamer "Poly" costs about €650*, as before.
