Any post that here says Rockbox isn't available for the v2 e200 is either really old or inaccurate. Rockbox on that model has been marked as stable since somewhere around 2009 or 2010.

The better question is why not include a dollar set of buds? It doesn't raise the price enough to notice and lets the buyer use their new toy without having to make a second purchase.
