^ Indeed. I am also keenly interested in hearing about DockEllis' update. Please keep us posted, thank you DockEllis.
I have a 80GB 5.5 gen with CF mod + Rockbox at the moment. Does anyone know if Hifiman RE-262s hiss with stock headphone output of 5.5 gen? If there is no hiss, I am buying RE-262s. All my current IEMs hiss with 5.5 gen (but not with iPhone 3GS or Sansa Clip).
