Yeah!!! Someone else who actually wears them out. Those are perfect portable phones in my opinion less than $200, but sound like 400.
But, I think I've got a fairly modest rig going.
5G iPod with all AAC320 (can't hear a difference now, we will see when my amp comes in, but I have everything in lossless too!)
Some Line-out that is nice (silver bling bling maybe...)
ER-4S or HF-1
I like it.... very practical.... one very open, the other very closed. And so far without the amp everything fits in my Taiwanese grado case...... I'm going to miss those days....
. Maybe I can fit my TBH.
I was afraid to get an amp, because I like not having the bulk. But, I decided since I'm now going to be commuting to school, it would help a lot. I use to bike and I guess the bulk would be an extreme disadvantage, but now, just throw it in my backpack.
I think a portable rig is whatever you feel comfortable carrying. Whenever it gets to a point that its a hassle to take out because its too big, then you know its not portable. The iPod is a very capable device if you bump $2,500 into it.
I mean iModded iPod, Bling Bling out, SR-71 or hornet, UE-10s or Futursonics or maybe HF-1s..... itd be a nice rig. A very inflexible one seeing u would always have to take an amp. Thus I might think of that as inportable.... but I guess if I just fill up my nano for running at stuff, it wouldn't matter. Of course thats another $150 to throw in the fire.
