  • Main Gear
    • Shure SE535 (I normally use the comply foam P-Series, but it I need to get more)
    • Sony PHA-1
    • Apple iPod 7th generation 160GB
  • Cables and Connectors
    • Custom 30pin to USB (I made it myself as the one that comes with the PHA-1 is too long for my liking)
    • Short 30pin to USB (use to charge the iPod on the go)
    • Fiio L9
    • 1/8" to 1/8" shot jack cable
    • 1/8" to 1/4" gold plated connector
  • Miscellaneous
    • Ear buds (I can't get myself to insert anything up my ear without cleaning the F**** out of it) 
    • Cleaning micro-fibre cloth
    • Tiny screw driver (you never know when you will need to use one :D)
    • Sailers hoek to the case (so i can strap it to my pants at home and walk around)
    • Lowepro Rezo 60 case

 

I still want to find a tiny micro usb cable to charge the sony, but everywhere i go there is always someone with a micro usb cable, so its not that bad for now....

Sony smart headset pro ($30 on eBay) - Fiio e6 ($25 on eBay) - KZ GR IEM ($8 on Aliexpress) - Gray/red wide bore tips ($1.50 on Lunashops)

It hooks up to almost any bluetooth smart device. I can clip it to a shirt or pocket securely. It reads email and texts, has eq adjustments, volume control, and I can play, pause, and skip tracks all without pulling my phone out of my pocket.

A wireless setup that does all of this for under $70

Budget fi over and out

iPod Video 5.5g -> (newly bought but secondhand) HeadAmp Pico Slim -> Final Audio Design Heaven VI

 

Lovely synergy. I probably wouldn't have bought the DX90 if I heard this first. That being said, the DX90 wins in overall technicalities but the tonality of this pairing is very close to my perfect, closer than Heaven VI plus DX90. The technicalities of this pairing is no slouch thanks to the Pico.

I know this stuff I put up is super cheap in comparison to some of the awesome stuff that's up, but the budget fi world is catching up fast to the top dogs in all categories. Build quality, features, customizability, sound quality and so on... The budget fi world is lots of fun. I could spend the same amount of money on "end game" stuff, but there wouldn't be much variety or room for creativity in making rigs each day.

One day I'll get my multi armature custom with TOTL amp, dac and cables, but if it doesn't happen I'm perfectly content picking up the latest offerings from budget manufacturers.

I still love using my old HD400's.

They're like a really good mature wine, And they just keep sounding better.

First time Ive tried them on a tube amp, It worked pretty nicely creating a warm airy sound.

Wind instruments sound amazing!!

The only downside is these cans NEED offensive amounts of power to drive them properly, The B-1 just manages to.

 

Rockbox'd iPod 5.5g Video.

iBasso LOD.

Little Bear B-1 Tube Amp.

Sennheiser HD400. ( 600ohm Beasties )

Your ipod video deserves at least a 1TB msata and a 2000mAH battery, if not a capless bypass surgery.

Haha If I had the funds maybe!

There is a mod thread with abundant info if you are interested. RWA iMod is just one of the ways for bypass, and to my ears not the cleanest one.

 

As for the SQ, my conclusion with any setup, capless lineout to capless amp and a pair of dynamic-driven iem's will pretty much kill your fever for good. If not, then you are truly an audiophile. :)

 

That said, I am often sucked into music and forget about SQ, even when I make spin moves with my earbuds on.
