With hi-res music becoming more popular, and smartphones coming with support for the format built-in, more people are taking an interest in how their choice of phone performs in the audio department. LG has recently taken that to the next level with its Hi-Fi Plus module for the G5, a plug-in DAC made in cooperation with Bang & Olufsen. It’s fantastic, but what if you don’t own an LG G5, but want something similar? This is the Chord Mojo, an external DAC and amplifier that works with your phone or computer, regardless of its make.
It’s a cigarette-pack sized aluminum metal box, with a variety of inputs and outputs on either end, and three glowing half-dome buttons for adjusting the volume, or powering up the device.
It comes with a Micro-USB connection, but if you buy Apple’s handy adapter cable, it’ll happily plug into your iPhone.
Android phones need to support the USB OTG system, something most modern devices will do.
On the opposite end are two 3.5 mm headphone sockets for you and a friend, and Chord’s proud of the fact the little box will take on any pair of headphones, from simple in-ears to high-impedance over-ears that require serious power to operate. It’s the same with file type. It doesn’t care, and will even handle studio-quality 32-bit/768kHz files.
