The plastic "holster" is designed to fit around the entire lower half of the iphone. The corners of the ipod classic are more pronounced and thicker than the iphone so the classic won't fully dock with the connector.
I removed the corners of the holster, and it fits perfectly. To do this safely, you need to disassemble the unit completely, but it's not hard.
It depends on the player. I have a 160gb thin classic, and I don't strictly need a band. Though I will still use one to make sure the dock connector doesn't get damaged if it ever came loose. Thicker ipods like the 160gb fatty and the 80gb ipod video may not clip as well.
Please excuse my noobness, but could someone explain this setup to me? Is the top device (zo2) a dac? If so, how does it connect to non digital outputs like on 3ds/psp?
EDIT: Never mind, just found out the zo2 is for adjusting bass quantities :P
Nice work Punnisher!
Ahh, by 'mod them' I meant 'mod the drivers'. I have a Parts Express headband coming to replace the stock ones because I find them to be difficult to adjust. I also want to perform the 75 ohm resistor mod as well as recable the things.
I did plan to remove the original drivers from a Pickering OA-7 and put in the Sportapro ones but after learning that I need to remove the pads to do such a thing I'm starting to have second thoughts. Apparently the Sportapros and Portapros share the same drivers and therefore should sound similar - I don't know anything other than that, sorry
How are the mods coming BiaB? Would love some pics :3
I've switched from planning to use Sportapro drivers to planning to use orthodynamic drivers. I've spotted a pair of HP-2s that are going pretty cheap and I'm going to try and snap them up. However, I haven't gotten the OA-7 yet and I plan to do the mods once I get back to Hong Kong. A bit anticlimatic, sorry
