Today's portable: iPod Shuffle and Sony XBA-4 along with some Metal/Hard Rock for some head-banging at the office.
I have a buddy running that same rig except he has his Shuffle strapped to a RS Shadow
Sometimes I use mine strapped to a Fiio E17
The sound quality is better but sometimes you just want the portability this combo allows.
This is my Shuffle rig with the Brain Wavz AP001 and KZ ED9's
Here's another buddies Shadow rig, Of course with the JH13's it should not even be in here
Come to stink of it neither one of these rigs I just posted should be in Mid-Fi thread. I'll never hear the end of this from Mr. Trev if he catches wind
