JDS Cmoy a little warrior

 

For a small portable amp in a tin you can't do any better than the JDS LABS cmoy. Ok it's slightly more expensive then some of the competition but the circuitry is professionally assembled and the overall quality of parts used is great. I opted for the...

Extremely portable, reasonable price, great sound quality, long battery life, professionally assembled innards, great customer service

A mint tin is not an enclosure everyone likes, bass boost is a bit muddy, not 100% robust

A budget-minded amp that I adore

 

A fantastic product, JDSLabs make some great CMoys, and the bass boost is fantastic from my point of view. Some may argue it is a bit muddy at higher volumes, but I rarely noticed it to an extreme extent, and even when I noticed it a bit, I remembered...

Very noticeable SQ increase on high impedance 'phones, bass boost switch, nice look, budget-minded, great costumer service

Enclosure is not the sturdiest thing in existence (what would you expect)

Excellent

 

This amp is just as good as he Headstage Arrow G4 amp I also bought, only the Arrow is 4x the price of the CMoy amp.

Good price,long battery life, and good sound

none

Honest value for money

 

I did buy this amp to see if it really can beat expensive amps. Well, it plays nice, but does not even play like 300$ amps. Nice to have as an experience, but not as a final word in system.

Fun, details, size, nice scene.

Very poor lower mids. Sound seem to be without its weight. Not comfortable in use. Too 'technical signature' in sound

What an Awesome Device

 

Like the title says, this CMoy from JDS is killer! Great sound in a small package for less than half of what many comparable amps cost. It adds a nice warmth and depth to the XBA 3s and GR07s I've tried. The 9V easily powers most headphones, even those...

Size, SQ, Construction, Bass Boost, Battery Life

None unless you're picky

Awesome little device that get you curious looks from strangers.

 

Here is my video review of the JDS Labs cMoyBB v2.03.

Looks cool, bass boost is great, excellent volume knob, customizable, smells curiously strong!

Case gets dinged/scratched easily, slightly thick for pocket usage

Very clean sound

 

This is my fist headphone amp, so I don't have anything to compare it to. I have the Sennheiser HD598 headphones and my first generation Microsoft Zune had a tough time giving them enough power. The CMoyBB makes a huge difference! I can now listen to...

Attractive, powerful, fun

I never heard that before

 

great little tin of sweets - brings a new layer to familiar tracks when compared to straight from iPod. Nicely balanced sound with option of bass boost. Order the 18V for hi impedance cans and ask for a jumper to short the second battery terminal...

small, cheap, bass boost & if ordered as 18v with a jumper can play any ohms cans

none that I can think of at the moment

Great portable amp

 

Great portable amp for those on a budget. Amp arrived packaged really well and was shipped incredibly quickly to my country. Looking inside the tin, the circuit board and components appears to be constructed to high standards, though the front panel...

Nice transparent sound, good build and compact, cheap, opamp rolling

Tin case looks susceptible to damage, bass boost muddies the sound, picks up interference
