When around the house, I've recently started using this:

I'm using Fiio bands to lock down an iPod dock to an amp. Anyone else tried this?

EDIT: Not the best photo, the cables in the background look like they are part of the dock. Please hold for another photo.

 

LOL - I guess whatever works!

My current "portable" rig.  By portable I really just mean pacing around the house.  D7000s balanced out of a Little Dot DP_1/iBasso PB2.  Really love the way this setup sounds!

Jeezes, I thought the reflection on the earcup was a huuuge dent in the headphone. >.>

I'm so bummed about that.  I bought my MKll off Amazon from the ALO Audio store, great price and since I had Amazon credit I went that route.  The wallet wasn't an option so I thought I would buy it direct off ALO but now they don't have any available.  So now I use the silicon bands and, don't laugh, my daughters small cloth Coach bag.

 

Any other ideas out there?

 

I asked the tech guys at Best Buy and Apple and they didn't know what a portable amp was.

Yeah it was a good deal ($29 for the amp wallet) as a package when the Rx mk2 was bought. The wallet also works great for my UHA-6S Mk2. I hate those rubber bands, period. This wallet is just practical/portable for carrying the gear while also providing some protection against accidental falls and normal wears.

 

I need to find some one who can do a custom amp wallet for me. Similar to this wallet design but using leather type of materials. I can't find any other alternatives.

 

EDIT: One thing to be noted is that wallet's transparent cover works great for the 5g/5.5g, but it's not so well for the classic's click wheels. The classic's wheel doesn't respond well or sometimes unresponsive to the finger's rolling thru the transparent cover. But for the 5g/5.5g it works like a charm. You see everything works great for the 5g's.

Thanks for the feedback.  I just assumed that even with MKlll coming out that ALO would offer something similar.  Now I'm stuck with the silicon band which is still a step up from the rubber band I used to use with my FiiO.  

 

There has to be a better way to contain my iPod and MKll

seeteeyou thanks for the links on the amp wallet. Gee I just came back from China recently and didn't know they have those. Otherwise I would grab a couple. Before the trip I was thinking about finding someone there to do the custom for me. Once I got there, I had been busy eating and drinking everyday and forgot about this. Damn it the Chinese food tasted so good there.

Seriously there has to be some alternative to the wallet.  If ALO has decided to quit making the wallet surely someone else will step up.

which IEM is that? Is that stock cable ?

 

Nice pic. Sony PHA-1 is a nice decent little AMP/DAC

 

JVC HA-FX700 - found the answer, I think
