So where do you "put" your portable rig? Pocket? Hand? Gearpurse? Shoe?

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
So when you're out and about, listening to your portable rig, where do you put your dap+amp combo (or other)? I find that the iPod+cmoy combo is too think for my pants pockets, so I find that I'll either hold it in my hand or put it into one of my jacket/coat pockets.

I normally just put it in my backpack, I usually have it with me even when I'm not at school. It's nice to have a big "purse" on my back. =P

Might try something like HeadRoom Mini Bag @ HeadRoom - Right Between Your Ears

My portable portable rig (Clip -> SE530) goes in my change-pocket and directly to my ears. Once I've assembled the funds for a less portable rig (32GB Touch [I will not buy one otherwise <_<] -> Supermini IV -> SE530), I'll keep it in a regular pocket. It'll still only be about an inch thick :P.

purse - or coat pocket

It is nice when you are female because you can always just carry around a bigger bag for your gear and --- it doesn't look weird at all!

In situations where I have to listen to music all day, I leave my DAP in my right-inner jacket pocket, have a long interconnect around my back to connect to a portable amp in my left-inner jacket pocket, and plug my headphones from there.

Don't have much of a problem with shuffles and im716. The 1st gen form factor and control placement are 2nd to none for pocket use. I'm having a hard time finding a larger dap with the same control scheme for playback/volume. Even if i hook up my amp (supermini) it all fits easily in a jacket pocket.

I've also got the backpack option but never feel comfortable using it - I like my equipment on me, not a seperate bag used for other purposes - but that's just me

Like the Mini Bag, I use a Total Bithead Bag to house my transportable iRiver H140 + RSA Sr-71 - can be hung by a shoulder strap across my body.

Ultraportable of Sony NW-HD5 and Mini3 (I couldn't settle on another amp with a lower form factor unless I was prepared to wait 1 year or so for a Xin ) bundled in an old Canon Ixus case, which is designed for a regular pocket .

I love reading about innovative solutions like this. Well Done.

Inside pocket of my suit jacket

Inside my pants pockets there is enough room for a naked Zune 80.

I've got a camera bag that fits on my belt; it fits my Archos AV604, my PA2v2 amp and APC spare USB battery.

Jeans pocket for me.
Plenty of space for an 1G iPod nano...

Definitely cool idea.. I'm going to try to find a setup like that with one of my coats I usually have it in my backpack or a coat pocket.
