The different is rather large, but of course the IEM is a better upgrade. 

 

DN-1000 + Clip is better than DN-900 + DX50.

How about from iPod Shuffle 5th gen to Sandisk Sansa Clip+, is it a significant upgrade?

From my experience quite a bit better if the IEM is capable of scaling up well, the most improvement will usually always come from the IEM/Headphone over a source.

If you're willing to spend money on X5 (which is not released yet) (or X3) then you should be focusing that money on another IEM like DN-1000 instead. It's very much Like Lin said above, if you're willing to buy X3, DX50, you're better of forgetting about DN-900 and go for DN-1000 instead and running them from a Clip or the Colorfly C3.

I haven't heard a shuffle, but I have a nano 3rd gen I feel it is cleaner, colder and has better separation.

I actually like the ipod better than the Sansa.

Agree. The lastest generation of itouch and nano does churn out pretty decent SQ. I find that it's more focused on Mids, particularly vocals. Bass tends to be flatter and doesn't extend very deep into sub bass region. This is done with flat EQ settings. But I do find the X3 betters the iPods. X3 price pins it no doubt one of the best DAP both in terms of SQ and price.

Hmm, these look interesting, hopefully they'll pop up on amazon soon.

well, like i said if you want it to live in a backpack it could be used but its so massive no one will ever keep it in a pocket.

Can I use this iem during workouts? I am worried because my dad broke two apple earphones already because he uses it during workouts.

Depends how you work out. I run white a lot with cheaper IEMs and surprisingly they are still here.

Can you recommend me something less than $20 for workout?
