I know it's a common thing for students to listen to music in library or in their dorm and I'm just wondering what your set-up is? 
 
I started with the M50's then switched to the Focal Spirit One (turned out to be the bad driver version) and then the Gr07BE. I have since decided I don't like IEM's and am looking for new ideas.
 
Always interested in what others are using.

My setup is usually either my rockbox'ed ipod classic or laptop as source -> leckerton uha6s mkII
In my dorm I'll use my HD600s and in the library I'll use my UM2s

This was a while back, but:



Yes, this is a public library, yes this is in the library's "quiet room," yes I actually brought that there, yes my music did leak a bit, no no one gave me weird looks or told me to turn my music down because 1) I was listening to my music at pretty low volume levels and 2) this was early enough in the morning that students hadn't populated the library yet.

MacBook Pro with Audirvana Plus software -> JDS Labs ODAC -> RCA-3.5 mm interconnect -> JDS Labs Objective 2 -> Audeze LCD-X



But my actual portable rig is:
iPod 5G -> FiiO L9 -> JDS Labs C5 or C5D -> V-MODA Crossfade M-100


My other portable setup is the same as the above but with a good 'ol Shure SE215-CL (olive foam tips). I prefer the M-100 rig since my ears get moist with the SE215 and can thus get a bit uncomfortable after some time.

You brought the O2, ODAC, and LCD-X with you to the library?!? That must have been a hassle

It'll either be this stack or the hugo. Now if only there was a way to get this level of SQ in a single DAP.

Indeed I did. And yes it was a pain to lug around. However, I brought the LCD-X only because there was an Audio Club meeting later that day since it was a touring unit and people in the area haven't had the chance to listen to it yet.

Light Harmonic's Geek Wave perhaps?
