Portability solutions; Excess cable managing, and player/amp carrying solutions?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Suppose you actually want to move with your cans amp and player? 
What can one do about this? I made a thread which produced good leads about rock-hard cases for full size 'phones that would also do well for storing or transporting all of these as a whole, but what about if you want to carry it with you AND move? 

 

Anything along the way of a holster, or some kind of easily accessible pouch? 


Ideal in my mind is something like a Batman utility belt for audiophiles; A secure place to keep both an amp and a player on your person, Even if just to move freely about your house!

 

The other good solution coming to mind is a way to keep excess cord managed nicely, and keep the amp and player pocket-able without being a human tangle of wires, or the fear of crushing your gear. Many a cigarette pack has been entirely flattened in my pocket from my normal movement day to day... I have fairly large, muscular thighs (But restrain yourselves please, I'm engaged wink_face.gif ) This is a nightmare for me with the price of audio equipment!

 

What can be done?!

 

A simple, effective, and tidy way to manage the FEET of extra cable on my Sennheiser's would be a great start!

Yeah, there's part of it..

But that's not as exciting as a Bat-Belt type item, and that only solves the cord issue..

iBasso gear comes in a little pleather drawstring pouch.  Just use a carabiner or some sort of other belt loop clip to attach the bag to your waist.  As far as the player goes, there's loads of iPod belt clip cases.

 

Then, watch as the women flock in your direction like the salmon of Capistrano.

I've not now, or ever, had a real desire to own any Apple product. To me, there's always a better alternative that's more to the point of what I'd like in the device. No point in frills I won't use. 
I am however, going to purchase another Cowon, probably an X7 ASAP, and I'd like to get the FiiO E11 at the same time...I found a leather case for ~25 dollars with a belt clip or not. If that worked out then I could belt the Cowon, and have the amp in my pocket, and end all the excess cable from the headphones with a velcro tie in there, but there's still the matter of finding a very short, but high quality cable to bridge the gap between the player on my belt, and the amp in my pocket... Of which I have NO idea where to find.

EDIT:
Think it'll fit a Cowon X7? 
And do explain the mesh covered cords and what you have in there...

You could also try PM'ing this guy, I guess he didn't like his:

I found google fairly useless for what I was actually looking for. Perhaps I didn't go enough pages back, or possibly just poor googling..

Found that one last night, but that page was ALL I found.. 

And that guy is selling for 10 bucks more for used...

The site has it 50, and I'd get it shipped for free..

The one on the site is for the Touch, the used one is probably for the Classic which costs more. It was last summer so he's probably sold it by now anyways.
