These were one of my first forays into 'audiophile' earphones and to this day i still use them as go-to iems. In fact last month I misplaced them and seriously considered buying a new set, despite all the the incredible new options that have emerged since their release. They are such great all-rounders and provide the best comfort and seal of essentially all earphones I've owned--i regularly sleep in them. They have Very clean, nimble bass. Smooth mids. And an incredibly lively high end. They are weirdly difficult to drive however. I can achieve higher volume from most of my full size over-ear headphones when using my phone, or plugging them in to my PS4 controller--which is essentially a BT dac/amp.
Anyway, i thought i'd leave my thoughts here as I'm unable to leave a proper review on drop.
I haven't had a problem driving them with my phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Exynos) but I get that all phones are not the same. One of the big hits for me is the form factor. That small zinc housing is amazing for subtle fitment.
I do feel your dilemma, if I misplaced mine I'd have to think hard about something else to replacement given all the positive points these IEMs have (except the cables, I'm sorry I tried). At this price point that makes the decision either easier or harder.
