So, here is my EC-33 combo!
(E11+C3)
 
Sorry about the quality of the photo, was taken with a potato, so please keep that in mind.
 
 

 
 

In the last picture, I had to cut out a small section of the silicon case to allow my 3.5mm plug to fit, without obstructing the case.
 
The C3 and the E11 are 3M Dual Locked together, which gives it a firm hold.

How did you get the UMs to be universal? Did you just ask them to make it like that?

He kindly posted about then in the previous page!

You really have to keep your eyes "peeled" with these

I hope I did well, started my head-fi journey with Shure SRH440s, my first full size headphones
i46.tinypic.com/2j4x3ir.jpg

My source is a crappy phone for now, but I'm getting a Sony Walkman E474 next week. Bought a FiiO Fujiyama E06 to power the 440s and give it a bit of bassboost.

I would recommend not using the bass boost on the E06, just use that with the EQ disabled, and boost your bass with the Sony Clear Bass. Also, if you are going to use your Sony with the amp,  get one of these...http://www.head-fi.org/products/fiio-l5-line-out-dock-lod-cable-for-sony-walkman

Thanks for the recommendation. Yes, I know what you mean, I don't still have the Sony Walkman at hand, that's why I have to suffice with the EQ2 bassboost. I'm a huge fan of Clearbass and its the reason I'm getting my 2nd walkman as the previous one died. As my source is hideous, the E06 helps, a lot, the sound's much cleaner and smoother. And yes, after trying out the Sony with just the Headphone Out, I was thinking of investing in the FiiO L5.

None of these products are available where I live, so it's a bit of a wait and costly for me. I'll update you soon, with my complete setup.

Edit : I'd prolly run the 440s with just the Walkman first though, but the E06 will also give me a better battery life and like you mentioned, with a future L5 upgrade, proper non-amped goodness to the E06. I'd like that.

The pratical devises xm6 turned up today (wolfson 8471, buf 634) it came with a load of goodies including AD8397 opamp/buffer, so I fired it up connected to the S3 and it works although I suspect the DAC stage is drawing power from the phone but alls good.

My Portable Rig
 
Rockbox'd Clip Zip (Flac + mp3 320) -> mogami quad interconnect (Just made it :D) -> C5 -> ER4 PT
 
This rig sounds really great!
 
I think C5 and ER4 are matching very nicely!

Nice! I'm currently enjoying Rocco BA atm, not a bad player from Hisound, not bad at all.

Hows the synergy with W4?
