naw man.. we're all good around here. just grown men (with a couple middle schoolers sprinkled about) discussing their opinions. things can get out of control from time to time.

Ah, talking about middle school brought memories. This was my source back then and I still have it http://www.head-fi.org/t/552014/pictures-of-your-portable-rig-part-xv/4230#post_8246755 > of course not with the fiio e11 (it was in the pic just for size comparison). I think I got it when I was 6th grade. The jvc Sharp player in my previous post is like an ipod compared to its size. It was paired with some Sony headphones that are probably somewhere around too.

With the exception of the first CD portable I had which was a D15 or 25 and which broke. Have to say I preferred tapes over my CD Portables. I ditched CD's and went back to tapes. When the tapes died I preferred MD/HiMD over the later PCDPs aswell. In fact I found Head Fi though being dis-satisfied with PCDPs' 

 

I really like the budget thread here. Loads of ideas for those of us on a budget. 

 

 

This is kinda of my old rig. The M6's died, and the Zip jack is iffy, now passed down to one of the kids as a bedroom player. 

 

I always preferred the A818s controls, and I've got it back working with a new battery. Some might be interested to know you can swap the battery. 

 

 

 

The clear case isn't very cool, but the buttons work great and the extra thickness is kinda better in the hand. Its also saved it from being dropped so many times. 

The earphones with the A818 are Senn MX760's which I love. But the foam covers are a pain. The original EX82 earphones died, and were too expensive to replace, but I liked the design of them.

I use a set of Senn CX200 sometimes too. Low end but neutral. Lot of cheap earphones are too heavy with the muffled bass. 

 

I also since picked up a X1050 in a liquidation sale for €70. Mainly for the radio (which is dire on the clip). I like it but the hold/buttons design drive me nuts.

I've been thinking of getting rid of it for something for useful like an iPod Touch. The X1050/X1060 seems to pop up cheap these days as they aren't an iPod. Great budget buy if you find them. The sound cancelling is great for commuting.

And of course, I'm not a fan of pink, asides from, well, this is a family forum so I can't go there. :veryevil:

Well, I'm not going to debate about the situation gentleman, if you two want to run the reckless life using no protection that's entirely out of my hands. ;) None the less I had something come in today that's well worthy of this thread, one of Hisounds new balanced armature IEM "BA-100" You can read some impressions on the portable earphones section. (but really I just came back to show off my silicon case). ;)

Clip + with 32gb card => VSD1. Total: $86

 

Loving the VSDs! They really are like a junior version of the GR07 BEs for a junior version of the price!

I never did post the wife's rig.

 

DUNU TaiChi DN-19 ($99) Available from our buddy on eBay bigbargainonline, I think he sold more Colorfly C3's to Head-Fi'ers than anyone else... :D

Sana Clip+ 4GB ($35)

Camera Case from the Big Bin O' Cases ($2)

 

She just loves the DN-19's sound with the tuning ports wide open for the nice boom and she even wears them down... :eek:

That lovely... beautiful... SPC Silicone jacketed cable is one of the most nastiest things I have ever encountered! Memory, I guess it has a Memory...

:beerchug:
