I put a small O-ring on all my wrapped cables.

what do you think ? 

 

I am thinking about putting my current iPod to rest. High capacity DAPs are welcome.

 

Must be rigged and heavy as all hell.

The hard shell jewelry case that came with them is convenient, but a bit small as I feel like i am compressing/bending the connectors unless they are place perfectly. The NT6pros use a musician's fit going to the second bend making them larger, awkward, and hard to place correctly. Plus the case doesn't have any cord management so the cord is getting squished as it sticks out the side. It takes a couple minutes to get them in there correctly so it is not as easy to use as it would seem. I have been using a quick and easy larger square zipper case that they lay in loosely and click together when shook, but this isn't a really good solution either.

 

Desired Case Characteristics:

  1. Compact: Is compact for travel and easy to store in a drawer.
  2. Secure: I can secure each ear piece individually.
  3. Cable Management: Something to wind the cable on.
  4. Easy Access: Access in seconds, not minutes, easy to open.
  5. Affordable: No more than $50, less is better. Unless no other good options.

I prefer the Otterbox Pursuit 20. Fits my UM Merlins, Clip+, my credit card reader, and a couple bands from Fiio. I'm now down to just a pillow for moisture absorption, the CIEMs, and a cleaner for them. But can always add a couple little things along with.

Here is my carry case. It is amazing how much portable gear fits inside.

Thanks for the help with my CIEMs storage. Now on to my headphones - do you guys know of any inexpensive cases with custom foam for headphones? I bought the Audeze ruggedized case below for my LCD2s, but have stolen it to protect my HD595s given that I already have the LCD2 wood box. At $75 plus shipping, it was not cheap and is overkill for my HD595s.

 

 

Now, with another child on the way this week and my 3 year old getting into my LCD2 box, I would like to use this case to protect my LCD2s. This larger box is probably overkill for the smaller HD595s especially considering that they are nearing end of life. The HD595s also have a permanently attached cable that needs to be accounted for properly. Does anyone know where I can find an inexpensive case that is more compact/shallow for easy storage and that has pre-formed foam for headphones?

 

What are you guys using to protect your headphones? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have an aluminum showdown!

Here's 2 pairs of sennheiser amperior, the blue amperior is re cabled with an oyaide set. The silver has the stock apple cable. Also is my grado sr325is






I can DEFINITELY tell the oyaide cable is an improvement over either of the stock cables that come with the amperior, it sounds unhindered and cleaner (probably the most notable improvement out of all re cables I've heard) I still feel like the sr325is is king of the hill most of the time for rock or metal. For heavy fast paced music the grado is perfection, it's really something to hear


As you can see I had to purchase the hd25 cable clamp for the oyaide cable (the amperior's cable clamp is a bi%ch to remove if you don't have a T6 bit or screwdriver)


Also I got a nice cheap case for the amperior, it fits my imod in it too

Here is the link for the oyaide cable http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00A71AHD2/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1396586651&sr=8-1&pi=SX200_QL40

Here's the link for the case http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B009YONZEG/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1396588081&sr=8-1&pi=SY200_QL40

I got an ipod 5.5g but only 80gb. My questions are:
1) How did you do rockboxed?
2) Can RWA 5.5g mod be done like rockboxed one?
Thanks for help.

Nasty? This is called working. It is working hard for you.

It does work very hard, its getting a bit thin at the end and losing colouration also. I need something soon, it's done good service
