    Julian, like the data capabilities of that iRiver and the Koss headband upgrade is nice for those who can't stand the pesky ear clips[​IMG] I'm with you on the Porta Pro love Troll, have always been an under rated/appreciated headphone and I have always felt people thought they looked dumb and therefore[​IMG]
    Achmedisdead, not sure if you can really say budget with the FC700's but still a sweet two piece arrangement, my buddy took it from budget for sure by running his clip into a Shadow. When he is riding his scooter he drives old Ety 6i's and to me that is killer compact, I do realize for some ymmv[​IMG]

    The custom screen and metadata display capability is all down to Rockbox so you can do the same on any player that supports Rockbox. I even customised my tiny Sansa Clip+ to display the same stuff except the picture. With a little care over scroll speeds and alternating fields it works well.

    Yes the Koss do deserve some praise. They work well with these more powerful players and I like that there are no logos or attempts to make a fashion statement.

    The FC700 only cost me $35....[​IMG]

    My apologies Achmed, I did not know they retailed for that little, beautiful cans especially for $35 bones[​IMG]

    I want to apologize for not posting my pictures, as my nokia lumia 920 seems to be having memory leak/battery issues. All my pics were lost, and the darn thing is stuck in a restore loop. Wish me luck please,... Or I'm stuck using an old iPhone 4. :frowning2:
  6. Achmedisdead
    I don't know how much they cost originally, to be honest....I got them on Amazon described as "used, like new" condition for that price. They're not the best headphones I have, but they have a nice balance to their sound and they're easily powered.[​IMG]
    That's a bummer. [​IMG]

    I got lucky, as my bro sent me back my Motorola Atrix 4G - thanks Achmedisdead!!! :)

    My Note II and my Sony MH1Cs.
    I'd be using my PortaPro KTCs but as you guys know they have a bad habit of breaking.

    A $530 phone with $70 IEMs is budget? I think you wandered into the wrong end of town.....
  13. KosanRio

    I paid $30 for the headphones and bought the phone last year on contract for $299. The phone is also a necessity it's not a dedicated audio device, I'd own it either way.
    Also I see PLENTY of people in this thread with iPhones and headphones in the same price range as mine...
  14. julian67
    OK I'm just a lot poorer than I realised because however I look at it $300 down + a monthly contract doesn't look budget-fi to me.

    Maybe this thread is full of expensive kit but a quick skim of pages shows Sansas and Creatives and Fiio and iPod classic and Superlux and some more Sansas. Also some more Sansas. Mixed in with some other Sansas.

    Anyway I think you get the prize for highest priced budget-fi in the thread so far.

    Tera Player anyone?
  15. tds101
    If you got it for $99 or less on contact, Ok. @$299 your officially disqualified. It's the law of the west!!! (old cartoon reference btw)
