To help out any interested in these and who want to know the difference between the models, I've reviewed them all; 1 - https://thecontraptionist.blog/2017/07/03/tfz-exclusive-1-10-of-hearts/ 3 - https://thecontraptionist.blog/2017/07/03/tfz-exclusive-3-jack-of-all-trades/ 5 - https://thecontraptionist.blog/2017/07/03/tfz-exclusive-5-queen-of-the-hill/ The 1 is alright and sounds most like the top of the line King, but sans refinement and soundstage and with more bass. It's okay but the 3 is much better and definitely worth stepping up to. Smoothest sounding of the bunch with really slick mids. It's the best value of the group. The 5 feels the most premium with it's all-metal shells. It's has the biggest bass and fairly bright treble lying somewhere between the 1 and 3. It's mids aren't as forward at the 3 but are clear and unimpeded by other frequencies. It's my favorite of the lineup, even over the more expensive King. Hope this helps!

I'll agree with your Exclusive 5 review, having now had mine for less than a day so far. However I actually don't find the 5's as very demanding to drive. My Nexus 5X handles it just fine, and my Dragonfly Black actually seems way too powerful. I have to put OS X's volume to it's lowest, and the application (SoundCleod, soundcloud desktop application) to near it's minimum in order to not blow my ears out. To me these seem like the perfect on the go/smartphone in-ears. Easy to drive, very good sound, doesn't take up a lot of space but also won't break the bank if you happen to lose them sometime. Although I'd be very sad to lose them.

Glad you're enjoying them! Maybe there was a misunderstanding? I don't find them tough to drive, just that they benefit from more power. Running them though my desktop amp versus a phone nets a nice bump in overall performance :)
