What you choose to carry says a lot about you. Are you the type that meticulously curates their EDC? Maybe it’s the OCD in you that pushes you to color coordinate your gear or side with one type of material over another. Or perhaps you don’t give a damn as long as the equipment is useful and will last. One thing is for sure; EDCs are as varied as our personalities.
Most of us choose to carry a select array of tools and accessories everyday that combine to accomplish just about any job; with them, you’re ready for Macgyverism at its best. That said, not just any tool will do. We expect only the highest quality items that are worth not only their price, but also their weight to carry on a daily basis. Junk need not apply.

Our 2¢: If you’re serious about your passion – whatever it may be, you’ll want to use what the pros use.

Mojo is billed as the world’s most advanced portable digital to analogue converter DAC/Headphone amplifier. This music player can not only make your music sound better, but will drive any pair of headphones you plug in to it.
