Greetings & Salutations!
 
As much as I like drooling over the Amazing Rigs in the regular thread, it sometimes just get a little too overwhelming...
There needs to be a place for us average "Joe's" to post pictures of the Budget-Fi gear that we love and use every day.
You know, those of us who don't walk around with $500 and more worth of gear.
 
So here is the place with a just a couple of rules:
 
1. All portable rigs posted here should have a TOTAL price of less than $200 that anyone can buy for the same price anytime. (Amazon, eBay etc...)
 
1a. If you picked it up from some guy on the corner for $50 but you KNOW it's currently worth $500 then it does not belong in this thread the Used-Fi thread also linked below is the place to post your great deals!
 
2. Pictures, Pictures, Pictures...
 
3. Duct Tape, Hot Glue and the Cable you made from Zip cord is more than welcome here. :)
 
Enjoy!

 
The Mid-Fi Thread is right here... $200-$600 Total
The Used-Fi Thread is right here... Anything Goes

If you're looking for sub-$500 rigs you may exclude a bunch of phone and iPod rigs, but I get what you're saying and I approve.
 
I'll post mine later, when I get to a camera that isn't part of my phone.

With Crown Royal all is possible...
 
Is that a pair of Sony MDR-V150's I see on the floor, the ones with the nasty rubber cord like these ones?

 

 
At least H20 didn't put a Bieber CD with it...

Yes, those were the V150s. They were the upgrade from the Sansa earbuds, and then those KSC75s were the next step up.
Good point there on the lack of Bieber.....at least Britney is (or was) hot....lol.
