I agree your clear ones look pretty sweet, I'm still waiting for my 2 black ones to arrive...

But mine are best for a U2 iPod, a perfect match (quit being mean)!

Funny...I am looking for silicone bands too, and I find this thread. Still trying to decide whether to use a velcro strap (I have a 160GB iPod Classic, and I just ordered a headstage Arrow; I THINK total circumference would be around 6", so I'd need a band somewhat smaller than that so the bands would be tight, holding the Arrow & iPod together nicely).

I feel you will need this

I'm GUESSING I'd need bands no more than 5" in size so there would be enough tension too provide clamping force & keep the units secure...but like I said, I'm totally guessing on that score...

The ones i got were 150mm in circumference.

I found a webshop a while ago that sells 5" bands, unfortunately, the shippingcost to the Netherlands was insane. I'm still looking for a narrow, black or clear 4" - 5" band to keep my Fuze & iBasso D2+ together.

The shipping is a bit expensive but its worth

The smallest size I can find on that site is 6", which is still a bit too big to securely fix my devices together.

contact them, I'am sure they will exactly measure it, I feel it is 150mm.

I had some 150mm (6") bands, they were just a bit too loose for my liking, so I'm looking for just a size smaller.

I'll just keep looking

I decided that rubber bands aren't going to work out for me.



I liked the fit of my "broccoli band", the sound was quite organic that way.

But there is friction between the amp and the Arrow that could cause scratches IMO, and it's not going to happen to my U2-autographed iMod.

I could use some pads in between, but that's halfway to velcro thickness anyways. Plus there is the issue of the iMod ID plate,



and I would need more than one rubber band anyways, to keep the rig from pivoting.

I decided to put the pads under the amp instead, for when it is sitting on a flat surface.



The finished product could be thinner, as the velcro and pads add about 30% to the overall thickness,



but I decided that I was okay with that
