The fact you don't have to take them off or cut the music just to talk to someone

Not everyone goes the same places on-the-go. I use two open 'phones as portables, the Sennheiser PX90 (which I've had for a while) and my new ones, Ultrasone HFI-15G (which just came yesterday). Portable for me is when I go for a walk, or if I go on a shopping trip. Nice to be able to just hit pause in the store to be able to communicate with a cashier (and not have to remove headphones), and when I am walking, I prefer to be able to hear the cars coming (I've been hit by cars twice in my younger years). If there's so much traffic noise as to drown out my tunes, then I'll just turn them off, rather than destroy my hearing.
There are no trains in my town, and I don't go on planes....if I was taking a long car trip, there are closed 'phones I would carry along instead, sure.
Newest portable combination......
Clip Zip: $40
32GB card in it: $22
Allergies have me all congested, but early impressions of the headphones are promising.
due to Head-Fi maintenance
And don't worry i have my closed pair too when i'm in a noisy place and will not likely communicate with people.
add on: aww yeah maintenance!
Looks great, I'm wainting for your review...
Here is my new complete system. Been running for about 6 hours and it sounds awesome.
looks awesome. clean and classic understatement.
Guys have more expensive gear than you in the other thread? Better is a completely subjective term, IMO. If you like what you have, who is to say that someone else's stuff is better than what you have? Just my $.02 on the subject.
Thanks, I am a bit of a neat freak
My latest acquisitions: Behringer UCA222 (desktop PC use only), Sansa Clip + 4GB, Superlux HD-681, and Fiio E5. The combination sounds very good together. I also throw in my Fiio E11, as well, from time to time. I'm looking for velour ear pads for the 681's. If anyone has a link for them, I would very much appreciate the help. Thanks!
How do you like the Schiit Magni amp?
I cant believe how good it sounds. I leave them running while I'm at work and every time I come back I seem to notice the top end is not so hard and the bottom end has more detail. I am very satisfied with this setup and cant wait for the weeks and months to come.
Thanks everyone for putting me on the right track.
I don't really go out and about with it, but it has the ability to be portable! Probably more than 500, but I got the Ipod for free from my parents who never used it , so it's way less than 500 for me. I find it really hard to believe that spending 2000 dollars I don't have on really nice equipment will sound that much better than this.
