Pictures of Your *Budget-Fi* Portable Rig (< $200) - Page 20

post #286 of 1322

Julian, like the data capabilities of that iRiver and the Koss headband upgrade is nice for those who can't stand the pesky ear clipsbigsmile_face.gif I'm with you on the Porta Pro love Troll, have always been an under rated/appreciated headphone and I have always felt people thought they looked dumb and thereforerolleyes.gif

 

Achmedisdead, not sure if you can really say budget with the FC700's but still a sweet two piece arrangement, my buddy took it from budget for sure by running his clip into a Shadow. When he is riding his scooter he drives old Ety 6i's and to me that is killer compact, I do realize for some ymmvbeerchug.gif

The custom screen and metadata display capability is all down to Rockbox so you can do the same on any player that supports Rockbox. I even customised my tiny Sansa Clip+ to display the same stuff except the picture. With a little care over scroll speeds and alternating fields it works well.

Yes the Koss do deserve some praise. They work well with these more powerful players and I like that there are no logos or attempts to make a fashion statement.

I want to apologize for not posting my pictures, as my nokia lumia 920 seems to be having memory leak/battery issues. All my pics were lost, and the darn thing is stuck in a restore loop. Wish me luck please,... Or I'm stuck using an old iPhone 4. frown.gif

I don't know how much they cost originally, to be honest....I got them on Amazon described as "used, like new" condition for that price. They're not the best headphones I have, but they have a nice balance to their sound and they're easily powered.smile_phones.gif

Even that old iPhone 4 you mentioned would have been better than what I am using. wink.gif http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2011/04/lg-500g-tracfones-first-qwerty-now.html

My Note II and my Sony MH1Cs.

I'd be using my PortaPro KTCs but as you guys know they have a bad habit of breaking.

A $530 phone with $70 IEMs is budget? I think you wandered into the wrong end of town.....

I paid $30 for the headphones and bought the phone last year on contract for $299. The phone is also a necessity it's not a dedicated audio device, I'd own it either way.

Also I see PLENTY of people in this thread with iPhones and headphones in the same price range as mine...

OK I'm just a lot poorer than I realised because however I look at it $300 down + a monthly contract doesn't look budget-fi to me.

Maybe this thread is full of expensive kit but a quick skim of pages shows Sansas and Creatives and Fiio and iPod classic and Superlux and some more Sansas. Also some more Sansas. Mixed in with some other Sansas.

Anyway I think you get the prize for highest priced budget-fi in the thread so far.

Tera Player anyone?

If you got it for $99 or less on contact, Ok. @$299 your officially disqualified. It's the law of the west!!! (old cartoon reference btw)
